Voila... this afternoon after work, one of the OT's from my office sent me a text with a video that said, "This reminded me of you. She quoted his final statement on the video, "We don't grow into creativity. We grow out of it." I loved that quote. I watched the video, and was shocked to see that there was someone out there talking about exactly what I'd like to present. However, he did not do the supporting art projects that I think would really set my presentations apart. Again, an affirmation that God may have been on my side when I was feeling the prod to attend this John Maxwell event.
I am planning to put together an art retreat (Septembe20-23.) where we will use our art projects to commemorate the John Maxwell principles we learn. We will intersperse John's teachings with the projects, and create talismans, if you will, with jewelry, canvases, clay, mini scrapbooks, or whatever we choose to make during the retreat to remember and commit ourselves to daily learning and growth. Basically a motivational seminar of sorts with lots and lots of motivation from each other and art for a whole weekend.
It's going to be a really inspiring weekend. I can provide more details to anyone interested. Either contact me on my facebook page (inbox me at Melanie Massey) or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I have a few names, but let me know if you are really sure, and I'll get you the deets. We are adding an extra day this time and lots more scheduled discussion and growth opportunities. I have Kaye, Sandy and mom and sister, Julia, Jennifer and friend, Riley and mom and friend, Rebecca, Anne, Karie, and Courtney as the potential particpants thus far. Please email me girls, for details so we can confirm and get the headcount. And to let the world know how many available spots there actually are.
Excited to be merging several of my passions with some new friends.
