Can’t You Be a Better Person?

By |April 20th, 2017|Categories: equipHER, Her Voice|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |1 Comment

Driving down the road one day, Michael and I were discussing a parenting issue involving our son, Ben. Every few minutes, Emily, who was 10 years old at the time, kept piping up with her opinion on the situation. We finally said, “Emily this really isn’t any of your business.” She sighed, saying, “Fine, if you don’t want me to help you make Ben a better person! Whatever.” Isn’t that what we think we’re doing sometimes, helping to make someone [...]

By |April 15th, 2014|Categories: Family, GIVE GOOD Awards, Leadership, Pondering, Purpose, Reinvention, Tuesday Talk|Tags: , , |1 Comment

How do you reinvent community? I live in Snoqualmie Valley. A rural community, once known for sprawling farm land that is now facing the integration of middle class suburbia. Snoqualmie Valley is nestled in the best of NW beauty with the nicest and most talented people you could meet. When I think about our community, I can’t imagine living anywhere else. In the last 11 years, I have witnessed the reinvention of our community. There has been efforts to stabilize [...]

But what I have realized over time is that my way of teaching, however inspirational, is ineffective for any kind of long term change. It has been by exploring the ways in which my own life has been transformed that I realize it is not by someone telling, but by someone asking, listening, [...]
