Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, welcomed Dr. Feyi Obamehinti to provide another commentary in a series.
“You can do what I cannot do, and I can do what you cannot do. Together we can do great things” – Mother Theresa
Points of Leadership is all about equipping leaders in maximizing their leadership. The power of knowing our strengths, weaknesses and benefits of personal development is priceless.
1. Strengths: Every human is wired with God created strength for who and what he/she is created for. Knowing
what your strengths are as a leader, helps you to flow in who you were created to be.
2. Weaknesses: Every human has weaknesses. Don’t believe the hype that only certain groups of people have
weaknesses. Every single human being has both strengths and weaknesses. Knowing what your weaknesses are,
helps your personal development journey.
3. Personal Development: What great leaders have learned to do well, is reduce the impact of their weaknesses on
their leadership by embarking on a personal development journey to enhance their strengths. This personal
development can be building faith, building character and managing time well.

Quote: “Anyone who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his or her back on the crowd” – Max Lucado
Daring leadership is all about boldness to tune out all forms of distractions in order to maximize our leadership to better serve the people we are called to lead. A symphony conductor is a great example of a daring leader that has learned to do the following three things very well:
1. A daring leader leads with love; sacrificing to serve those he or she is called to lead.
2. A daring leader leads with passion; with a strong feel of care for those he or she is called to lead.
3. A daring leader leads with purpose; be that a short or long term impact.
Distractions look different for leaders. The key thing is to recognize what distractions need to be tuned out in order to better serve those you have been called to lead. Now, go be a daring leader!

It's been a while since my last post in April! And it is now summer in Texas! Time flies and this means hot temperatures. Also means pool or beach time. Texas is home to some lovely beaches; from Baffin Bay, to Mustang Island State Park, Matagorda Bay, Surfside and San Jose Island, anyone can enjoy summer at the beach right here in Texas. Who knows, maybe we'll see each other at one of these beaches this summer.
In time for summer, our circle of love completed the book study of the Companion Manual: Wellness Principles Made Simple. We had new friends join us towards the end of the study and added another layer of robust discussion to our time. We closed out the book study with a double 25 days gratitude challenge; where we get to think daily of 25 things we are grateful for over a period of 25 days. That is a challenge that leads to a gushing well of joy! It is never too late to embark on a gratitude challenge. I'll love for you to join us and share your experience with at least five people in your network when completed.
Speaking of the Companion Manual, there has been an increased interest in the Companion Manual in the last month. It is my hope and prayer that the manual will be a source of help that leads to healing and restoration. Stay tuned for new resources come fall of this year.
Congratulations to all graduates from kindergarten, middle school, high school and all levels of college! Proud of each of you finishing well! Praying God's abundant blessings in the next chapter for you graduates. Parents- congratulations to you as well. It took your sacrifice, support and love to get your child (ren) to the finish line. It might be time for that summer vacation at the beach.
Lastly, this month is Father's Day, June 19 to be exact! I want to wish my incredible husband and dads a Happy Father's Day. You are one of the most priceless gifts in our world. Thank you for being you! That's it for now dear friends! Happy Summer! Please stay cool and well hydrated! Love & Blessings!!!
"Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation" - Psalm 95:1
Just in time for Easter, we made it to chapter 5 (Spiritual Renewal) in our book study of the Companion Manual: Wellness Principles Made Simple. We are loving our time together in the circle of love as we take a look at spiritual renewal and how it leads to wholeness. Renewal happens when hope begins its work in the soul. Hope allows for internal change and leads to transformation, which in turn opens the door to a well of joy in the soul.
As we celebrate Easter, our circle of love is offering thanksgiving for the supernatural exchange that Easter brings us for eternity. Because of the miracle of Easter, anyone can experience and have new life, new hope and new horizons. We are half way through the book and you can still join us in the circle of love. We will love to have you. That's it for now dear friends! Happy Easter! Happy Resurrection! Happy New Life! Love & Blessings!!!
"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In His great mercy He has given us new birth
into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead" - 1 Peter 1:3
It's almost spring time; in about two weeks! Here in Texas, it means we can leave everything icy or cold weather behind. We are loving our time together in the circle of love. We started out with a book study on the "Companion Manual: Wellness Principles Made Simple." For the next few weeks we will be discussing chapter 2 (inspection) and how important it is for healing and wholeness. Inspection is a critical aspect of many industries. Whether is food or construction, inspection is a key part of ensuring consumers and clients are safe.
In wellness, inspection is similar. "Without inspection of our traumas, healing, restoration, and wellness will not be possible. Inspection is synonymous with a “mirror.” When you are getting dressed in the morning, your mirror lets you know what is still missing in getting ready. Trauma is a mirror that lets us know that wellness is missing in our souls and spirits." It is not too late to join us in the circle of love. Hope to see you there.
That's it for now dear friends! Until next post, sending lots of love and prayers your way for a wonderful spring season. Love & Blessings!!!

It is the last full week of January 2022! And new year greetings are still okay even towards the end of January 😊. Happy New Year! Hope your year is off to a great start! Remember to cherish each day- it’s God’s gift to you! How we “spend” the gift is our gift back to God!
Diving into the new year, I have revisited all the cherished memories created on our last vacation to fuel the marathon of this year. This picture is one of many taken from our vacation last month. The picture has been helpful in launching the treasured membership of the Wellness Project. Three years ago, when the question was posed, for a place to meet consistently, this website was created. With your input and feedback, the circle of love has been added through the treasured membership. This is a place to unwind and chat about your wellness journeys. Excited for our times together here. Come on in!
The inspiration came from our visit to the Banyan tree in Lahaina (Maui). The educator in me discovered some key things about the banyan tree. It belongs to the Moraceae family and the species, Ficus benghalensis L. For my plant enthusiasts, you can learn more about the banyan tree here.
The tree is marked by trunk like aerial roots. This one in Lahaina has twelve major trunks. Interestingly, the banyan tree was imported from India and planted in front of the Lahaina courthouse and harbor in 1873. The tree is so huge it spans many blocks. What I Iike most about the Lahaina Banyan tree is the arrangement of park benches around the tree; it attracts people to slow down for a chat with co-visitors at the park. The Circle of Love is similar, as we slow down and chat about your wellness journey as a treasured child of God that you are! See you there!
May 2022 be your best year yet! Keep making wellness a top priority. See you in the circle of love. Sending you tons of well wishes, love and cheer for an amazing year.
Much love & Blessings!

This is a short Christmas post 😊.
It is Christmas time and I am delighted to spread some Christmas cheer! The excitement is all around us! Hope you have completed your shopping. Or maybe you are still wrapping your gifts. No matter what, take the pressure off-it’s Christmas time! A special time to take all in the amazing Gift God gave the world in His Son. A time to slow down to enjoy our families and loved ones. A time to create invigorating new memories that will fuel our lives for a long haul. A time to say, “Thank You” to God for being selfless and giving humanity the best Gift ever! That Gift is no longer a baby in the manger. Today, He is the Savior of the world. He is the perfect Guide of life. He is the genius Teacher of all ages! This is Christmas!
As I celebrate Christmas, I am counting my blessings in you! Your bravery, your journey to wellness and your growth. It has been an honor serving you this year. I have loved getting to know many of you, your story and your journey. I am excited for you! Keep making wellness a top priority in your life.
We are hearing and seeing a surge in the new omicron variant. So, please, take good care of yourself. Do whatever it takes for you to stay healthy for you and your loved ones. You are worth it! Until the next post (most likely in January of 2022), sending you lots of Christmas love, cheer and greetings! Merry Christmas in 12 languages! Afrikaans: Geseënde Kersfees!

This is another short post and update 😊.
My husband and I just came back from some R&R from beautiful San Diego. Hiking is always a great highlight of our R&Rs. We enjoyed hiking up one of San Diego's grassland peaks with some Christians from a church group. We had a chance to top off our R&R time with some time at the beach. We are back at life in our lovely Texas. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! In just three weeks of the release of the Companion Manual: Wellness Principles Made Simple- my inbox is filled with your purchase updates, well wishes, prayers and inspirations! This has been the other way around- I am blessed by your courage, care and love for yourself foremost and for others. My greatest delight in this new release is hearing from non-Christians who purchased a copy. It was my intent that you would find the resource beneficial. God really does love you! And I count it an honor to serve you and that you picked up a copy. As you will find out reading the Companion Manual, wellness in spirit, soul, body requires learned skills. With all that is happening around us, it is a great time to acquire and hone the necessary skills to thrive despite all happenings in the world. Humans have what it takes because we are created in the image of a Divine Architect. Our capacity and ability to thrive is an "inside" job that anyone who is ready to put in the hard work of change can experience a thriving life daily. Some of you asked for weekly seminars on the book. I promise to look into the possibility and update here. In the meantime, virtual one-on-one sessions are back! Yay! Check out the calendar. I'll love to hop on a video call and journey with you.
Whether you are just starting your wellness journey or a veteran, I am cheering you on! It takes more than resiliency to thrive and enjoy the life God created and meant for us to live. It takes freedom of the soul. And it is not what we know about freedom that counts, it is what we do with what we know that breaks the chains of bondage off! I am here to help you thrive, this is your personal invite- let's go! That's it for now dear friends! Until the next post, sending lots of prayers your way for a wonderful fall season. Please stay safe and healthy. Love & Blessings!!!

This is a very short post and update 😊.
I have missed updating you here. Hope you and your families are staying safe and healthy amidst everything happening (extreme weather, Covid, school reopenings, Afghanistan tragedy, etc.) A friend and I were chatting this week, and she reminded me that my last blog post was in May. She mentioned it was time for a fall update. So here we are with fall updates. Fall is officially three weeks away! September 22, 2021 to be exact. It has been a hyperactive type of summer and I could not be more thrilled for a slower pace ahead. I appreciate your patience and connection amidst all that is happening.
This summer has been one of the busiest I can remember since our parenting days when our daughters were teens! That was over a decade and half ago! How time flies! They are now amazing, beautiful responsible adults( 30, 28 and 27). Those teen summer days were packed with travels, travels, and more travels. It was always one of those summer travels that you needed a vacation afterwards. I hope you and your families have had the opportunity to enjoy your summer before heading back to fall schedule, whatever that looks like for you. I am holding you close in heart, as we continue in prayer for families and friends.
