Upcoming Events

Our guest for lunch this week was Author and HR Guru Theresa Rich. She shared with us some of what went into her most recent book, Staying Same in Crazy Times. It is about making choices to find and achieve your mighty purpose, no matter what craziness is going on around you. Using short, engaging stories of everyday life, readers are coached to make good choices to help them be their best. The workbook format helps readers take ownership have self-accountability. We are living in more than a time of change; we’re living in crazytimes change, possibly total upheaval. Even the good stuff, like the unprecedented access regular people have to food and information, is being dumped on us faster than we can cope.Her talk was captivating, and the book was a big hit in the after-the-show show, where she autographed copies for several lucky Xemplars. Thanks for stopping by Theresa, we had a great time!

Our guest for lunch last week was Paul Melrose, Executive Director of Samaritan Counseling Center.

The center uses both theology and psychology while serving clients in an atmosphere of care and respect. Serving this area for 24 years, they partner with many local agencies as they serve the mental, emotional and spiritual needs of our residents.
