Dann grew up in west Michigan. His father was a successful businessman, a brilliant engineer, and everyone’s favorite Sunday School teacher, and his mother was the glue that kept the family together. His dad taught him how to hit a baseball, how to speak the truth with boldness, and how to stand up for what’s right. Mom taught him how to manage his money, how to forgive, and how to live a generous life. 

"There is a real world all around us. We taste and feel it everyday. There is also another world where God dwells and those who have gone before us live with Jesus.  Dann Stouten helps us discover that those two places intersect more than we often notice. If we pay close attention, we just might see, smell, and learn to taste the goodness of a world beyond this one." Kevin Harney, author of Reckless Faith
