Thank you Manitoba Camping Association and Christian Camping International for a great conference experience! It seems like an eternity since the last time I've experienced a conference like this. I was actually scheduled to be the keynote 3 years ago, but then we had a little thing called a pandemic get in the way. So … Continue reading Linked 2023 Camp Conference!

Gratitude is one of the greatest things you can share with the world! Starting your day with a list of items for which you are grateful boosts your energy and your attitude. So this post is an energy booster for you, because it is all about gratitude for this past week. I had the opportunity … Continue reading A True Care Experience
Working Better Together!
Did you notice the new banner and motto? I took a poll this past week, feeling inspired to re-evaluate what best sums up the work I do, and put 3 options out to the world. It came back pretty resoundingly as you see here: Working Better Together! It fits with helping others, but more importantly, … Continue reading Working Better Together!
A Christmas Wish
What do you wish for this Christmas? I guess this question is a pretty easy one these days, when you consider all that the world is dealing with at the end of 2021. We really thought we would be done with the pandemic by now, and we are bracing for another lockdown; I assumed we … Continue reading A Christmas Wish
3 questions for the road ahead
As I write this I feel the warm embrace of the sun outside my kitchen window, and I feel a sense of calm. It still amazes me how responsive we are to our surroundings, whether it be reactions from friends, a completed agenda, or just a good cup of coffee in the midst of the … Continue reading 3 questions for the road ahead
Care…Might feel a bit like love
Do you feel loved in your setting? I know, I know, we try not to use words like ‘love’ in our social settings, especially when it relates to work. But I beg you to try and find a better all-encompassing term for what we expect of others, and others expect of us inversely, in situations … Continue reading Care…Might feel a bit like love

Working through tough answers
Did you ask yourself the 3 tough questions I asked earlier? Or do you prefer your current trajectory? We often choose the current trajectory because it is the one we are on. Not because we have actively chosen it. We may have struggled to achieve at one time, maybe overcame a crisis, and now we … Continue reading Working through tough answers
3 Tough Questions
Purpose. Joy. Care. I believe these are the 3 most important hidden desires of anyone involved in teamwork. Any kind of team. Any kind of setting.

Let’s Talk…But don’t save it for one day
I love the #BellLetsTalk initiative. It creates awareness to mental health issues, and destroys barriers created by ignorance and stigma. Unfortunately, there is a big push for that day, and then it fades. People shut up, listening is deafened, and awareness slows. I know for myself, my family, and friends around me, there is much … Continue reading Let’s Talk…But don’t save it for one day
What does caring look like?
That is the question we were left with after my last blog. Business or personal, we are humans interacting and wanting the best for those closest to us. So what does it look like? I have said it, you have, we all have. We tell people we do something or want something because we 'care'. … Continue reading What does caring look like?
