About the Author
William R. Lamb, a PGA golf professional of 25 years, took up mountain biking at the age of 53, and four years later he completed the Tour Divide, a 3,000-mile mountain bike endurance race in the wilderness from Banff, Canada, to Mexico. It was an adventure that, combined with the birth of his youngest grandson, changed his life forever and inspired him to write From There to Here, an inspirational book about his life. William currently serves as a professor in the Lifetime Fitness department at Baylor University. He has a wife, three sons, and four grandchildren, all of whom he loves dearly. Most of all, he believes Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and he wants others to know of God’s salvation through Christ, His Son.
