Tom Herstad, born and raised in Ontario, wrote the book to honor the memory of his mother, Mary Margaret (Margie) Herstad, who died five years ago at 73 after leading an inspiring life marked by periods of great adversity. Herstad’s father died at 38, leaving Margie to raise four children alone. Despite her own troubles, Mary Margaret opened her home to a total of 18 relatives and strangers who needed a place to stay and some kindness. Herstad recalls that once when he returned home from college one his mother informed him that she had given his bedroom to someone who needed it more than he did.
“Love, Care and Share,” is a distillation of the best advice Mary Margaret passed on to her children. He says, “She taught me to listen more than I speak, especially during a conflict; to take responsibility for the way others respond to me in everything I say or do with them and to always think of the needs of others.”
Over the past 25 years, Herstad has used his mother’s advice and his own life experiences to help many people pursue their own dreams. For the past 14 years he has run his own LED lighting business, Regal Lighting Designs, which serves the Grater Toronto Area, Ontario, and Canada.
He has appeared on HGTV’s “Decked Out” and on “Ultimate Garage.”
He took a four-month sabbatical from his business to write “Love, Care and Share,” after being inspired to follow his own dream of writing it, by the wisdom of Steve Jobs and actor Jim Carrey.
