A Transformative Opportunity

Jesse Lyn Stoner Blog

Dan does not remember the accident, although he was later told they found his truck down a steep ravine wrapped around a tree. He has a fuzzy recollection of the ride in the helicopter. But he does not remember the EMT folks who saved his life at the scene by inserting a tube into his collapsed lung. I like that. The Opportunity for Transformation.

Mentoring Paradox

Mills Scofield

I believe mentoring is a gift for the mentee and the mentor. Throughout my career, I’ve been blessed with incredible mentors who, perhaps unknowingly, taught me how to mentor. It’s something I take seriously and joyfully. It is a paradox - an incredibly selfless thing that is also very selfish. Recently, my mentoring has increased.

In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season; the Christians called it "Christmas" and went to church; the Jews called it "Hanukkah" and went to synagogue; the atheists went to parties and drank. People passing each other on the street would say "Merry Christmas!" or "Happy Hanukkah!"
