Class 8 recently celebrated their completion of 16 weeks of intensive training and graduated from the first phase of their Circles program at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church. We wanted to recognize and publicly congratulate all 9 graduates (Circle Leaders), Charles & Sonya Anderson, Jessica Crabb, Melanie Eliff, Shamera Hall, Pamela Hunter, Lisa Laster, Brandi Lawson and Sam Newton – the excitement and transformation is just beginning. Each graduate will be paired with at least two Allies that will come along side them, lock arms and support them as they continue to lead their lives out of simply surviving, to living a life of pure abundance.
We also wanted to give thanks to the many, many community allies and volunteers that inspire and equip individuals and families to move from surviving to thriving. It is a life changing experience for the Allies and Circle Leaders, and after all, it’s a hand across, not a hand out!
At Circles we build relationships, we figure out how to do life better. We find better ways to budget, resolve conflict, and improve our health (both physical and mental). We are blessed with the gift of watching individuals and families transform their lives and their families’ lives in ways they never thought possible!
