- Paul Caron (Pepperdine): "I am thankful for my beautiful wife, daughter, son, and dog, and that three of them are gainfully employed."

- Cliff Fleming (BYU): "In August 2011 my wife Linda learned that she had aggressive uterine cancer and that if she proved to be in the wrong tail of the bell curve, she would pass within 12 months. So we consider ourselves very blessed that we were able to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary in June 2014 and that Linda is well enough to have traveled to Europe twice with me in 2014 and now to be preparing for a full-bore, big family Thanksgiving dinner. We live on the bubble between quarterly MRIs but are grateful for each additional day."
- Victoria Haneman (Concordia): "I am thankful for so many things in 2014: publication of Making Tax Law with co-author Dan Berman, a new position at a school with incredibly engaged students and a great selection of farm-to-table restaurants, and a baby girl on the way."
