Weaving together a webinar

This week’s assignment for E-Communication in the 21st Century was presenting information about a social media tool using the webinar software Adobe Connect. Not a surprise to those who know me…I chose Facebook as my social media tool to cover. We received great training a week earlier, but it still felt overwhelming. Adobe Connect is…

Watch at your own risk

Warning: this video is powerful. You might be amazed. You might be freaked out. Your heart might break. Your heart might jump out of your chest. Whatever happens, I’m betting your wheels will start turning… Seconds – I Am Second.

Grump monster, be gone!

I have a confession. I have been very grumpy lately. Just ask my family. I’m sure they would wholeheartedly agree! If I give myself permission to be grumpy, I think I could follow suit all darn day. The key for me is reminding myself I have NOTHING to be grumpy about. Plus, what’s the point…

Footloose

This evening we watched the original “Footloose.” What a fun movie, and what memories that brings back! Hubs is one of those people who watches a movie one or two times and has it memorized. He made sure and let us know to watch for certain “fun” tidbits. Take a look and watch for the…

Communicating on the World Wide Web

It’s hard to believe, but I am very, very close to getting my Master’s degree from University of Denver in Alternative Dispute Resolution.

Be “that person”

Today our local CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) program, Sunflower CASA Project honored the 160 abused and neglected children served by their CASA volunteers in 2011. One hundred sixty children were in the Riley, Clay or Pottawatomie County court system last year. One hundred sixty children were served by awesome CASA staff and volunteers who…

Cuddles

The girls are turning eight this month. Eight years. Really? Where does the time go? I saw them this morning and my heart melted. How cute and cuddly they look. It reminds me when they were so little we could keep them away from our dogs in a little storage container together (We really did…

You make beautiful things out of the dust

While driving to work this morning I heard this song by Gungor and thought how fitting for our new garden, spring time and Easter. It reminded me of this verse as well–Psalm 139: 13-16 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully…
