|Brianne and Jacob representing|
Part of what we are trying to accomplish with the Fellows is to build in healthy rhythms of work, rest, service and play. This week was full of all of the above. A good week I'd say.
ROUND TABLE at Stan and Susan Scott's
We had a sweet time together with Stan and Susan (host parents of Jessica and Christina Standstedt back in the day). The lasagna pie or whatever that was was AMAZING!
Ben Jones, our Board Member responsible for coordinating our mentors came to help our Fellows process their mentoring experience and give us feedback. It was a rich conversation that left me thankful for Ben and thankful for all of our mentors!
LEADER LUNCH with Curtis Harrington at F.A.S.T.
Every week we introduce our Fellows to another interesting person living out their purpose in unique ways in our city. Curtis is one of those people.
|Curtis WORKED US OUT!|
A professional trainer, he opened up FAST about a year and a half ago to help develop athletes of all shapes ages and sizes. He does it in a holistic way of thinking about the mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of development too.
The dude is incredible.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND joining his FAST Tribe.
His gym is on Broad Street. I'd be happy to connect you.
|Curtis put us through the ropes (literally we did the ropes)|
|This lunch was right up Reiley's alley|
|Same went for Greg who used to train over at D1 when Curtis was there|
|The wall sit while passing the medicine ball - hurts so good!|
Thank you Curtis for an incredible lunch!
Keeping with the theme: that night David and I went running at the JDL Indoor Fast Track with our friends the Summers.
|Phillip brought some batons for us to do relay races|
Half of our Fellows volunteered at Samaritan Inn on Thursday. They had a great time but I'll admit they were dragging the next day. The other half will be volunteering next week.
Meanwhile on Thursday, Lia and I visited Brianne at a Habitat for Humanity Function.

FRIDAY CLASSES continued...
Joe Moore had the week off so I led a class on the Highlands Ability Battery which the Fellows have just taken. The HAB is the cadillac of all Aptitude Assessments. It is a lot of fun to administer.
After that, we had class again with Rob Alexander over at Sonicaire. So fun.
|This Brianne with her new beautiful host sister|
|This is what parents of Fellows look like...|
I had the fun privilege of visiting our Redeemer Fellows this week. I went to their Equipping Hour where the subject was SEX!
|Jacob leads the young men's group....what a stud...maybe not the right word choice...|
|Sophie-Earle led the 11th and 12th graders|
Brianne led the 9th and 10th Graders
|These are middle schoolers - she led them later Sunday evening|
A great week...
We've got a few applications in the pipeline. And hope to be getting a few more in the coming days. Keep spreading the word. I just got off the phone with a wonderful young woman that an acquaintance of mine recommended. That's how this thing works!
