Monday Minutes

December 11, 2017

A HUGE shout out to our party planners and hostess for our Holiday Party this past Friday. Thank you! I don't know about you, but I truly enjoyed the opportunity to relax, visit, and meet some of your significant others.

As a reminder, we will meet as a staff on Wednesday to continue our book study. Here is the information about the assignment for this week. This month's assignment is Guideposts 3 and 4, which can be found on pages 63-86. Please read and reflect in Google Classroom before we meet on the 13th.

Finally, I'll leave you with a quote I heard in a TED Talk I listened to recently. I met Todd Nesloney several years ago at an EdCamp and have followed him on Twitter since then. In his talk, he stated, "You can never reach a child's head until you reach their heart." I think this is an important reminder about why we do some of the things we do like having community circles and investing in relationships. Keep investing. The end result is worth it!
