I, Mark Henderson, am a Certified Public Accountant. Thrillingly I’m an accomplished rock and ice climber. Expansive places have always drawn me in, places where your eye can rest on a lined horizon or be pulled upward by the surrounding terrain. These peace filled spaces ground me! They allow for two things I’ve found to be essential for deep, lasting joy―engagement & rest. They allow many like myself to think about how our own stories impact the way we engage ourselves, others, and our world.
I began pursuing writing and photography beginning in July 2011. These arts solidified my passion for story. I’ve been frequenting coffee shops ever since so I’ve been face to face with lots of different people throughout the day.

When I reflect on my life, this thing about “stories impact” is a uniting theme. Real people―people like you and me―are nuanced & unrefined. Our stories are ever expanding and subject to unending factors. But just like in the business world, understanding who we are, where we came from, and where we’re going is a sure pathway to significance. So in a very heart-first move, I left my successful career in the corporate world and dove into learning all I could about being a writer and photographer.
I wholeheartedly meet strangers where they are. I studied world religion in college and thrive on experiencing different cultures, religions, languages, and a variety of food. Although I do not resonate with being religious, I am decidedly a “Man of God”. You see it’s my private relationship with God where I find rest for my soul.

Father God never intended it to be about THE CHURCH! It’s all about a private one-on-one intimate relationship with [your name here] and your creator. So when you personally decide to GO VERTICAL with God, then we will be growing in intimacy with one another. Horizontal, similar to a Redwood’s root system. Yes?
I originally created “For Something Good” and am blessed to now affirm two new co-founders Jennifer Dietz and Glen Biar. I am now merely a co-founder equal to Jennifer & Glen, because this EPIC endeavor was never ever about me.
Often times I tell strangers I meet in coffee shops, or wherever that if you perceive that I want something from you, then walk away. If I don’t want anything, then why would I lie?
