Focus on Jim Hodges

We here at Teach Them Diligently remember well that incredible day in July of 2011 that our very first exhibitor registered. The very first brand to partner with Teach Them Diligently was Jim Hodges Audio Books.

What you may not know about Jim Hodges…

Jim served for 20 years in the US Navy, and met and married Monica (who was also in the Navy!) in Kingsville, TX. He and Monica have 3 grown children who they homeschooled through High School, and 8 grandchildren. Both are adventurous so travel is something that really excites them. They’ve been to Japan, Hawaii, Alaska, all but 4 of the Lower 48 states, Rome, Venice, Switzerland, the D-Day Beaches, Paris, Rothenberg, Germany, London, various places in the Caribbean, and are going to Belize in November of this year! The coolest thing Jim has ever done is stand on the bridge of a nuclear powered submarine (the USS Louisville) as it headed out to sea. The Louisville is the sub The Hunt For Red October was filmed on!

How Did Jim Hodges Books Come To Be?

Monica and Jim were out on a date in 1998 when he was a year before retiring from the Navy, and she asked him what he was going to do for work when he did. Jim told her a couple of possibilities, but then she asked a different question altogether. What would he do if money were no issue? Whatever he did would provide. Jim immediately said “I’d record books.” He’d been speaking aloud just because he loved to do it since he was in 2nd grade! He’d done theater, was the newscaster when his ship was underway, narrated Navy training films for fun, and loved reading to his kids when they were growing up. He thought, “Why not see if I could turn that love into a career?” And Jim Hodges Audio Books was born.
