All your life you’ve wanted to be like George Washington or Captain Moroni (girls, feel free to substitute Joan of Arc or Ruth!). There are some people that just beg to be emulated. How do you take that natural feeling of wanting to be like someone and make it into a plan of action? What is it about the GREATS that made them…well…great? Let’s talk about how having heroes can help us live so their imprint is in our lives. Being mentored by heroes is the best way to become one!
Inside every person is a desire to be amazing, to make a difference, to leave a legacy. But, there’s also a competing voice which says, “That only applies to other people.” You know… those people who have their act together (or are born beautiful, rich, AND charming), right? We’re going to talk about being awesome – what that really means and how you are in charge of making it happen. Come with a desire to see yourself (and the world!) with a new paradigm as we discuss key principles to find – and stay in -your own kind of awesome.
Come join us as we discover and apply the first three steps of Sean Covey’s book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens.

I went from broke and broken to living a ridiculously awesome life with my wife and seven children, traveling around the world for eleven years. But this life only comes through living deliberately each day. Come find out what that means and how to do it!
Electronic tools can be a blessing, but only if we keep them in their place and not let them take over our lives. We never want them to get in the way of developing the communication skills and confidence to interact with people that will be so essential in the future. We never want them to get in the way of being able to recognize and respond to the Spirit. God doesn’t use email; he uses knee mail.
Prepare now to be the kind of missionary who can truly make a difference!
