Share your Story of Self with weavers
Wendy Yehia ❀️
Elizabeth Dishman Thank you for sharing your story, Rachel! I'm struck by the difference between "mold" and "weave" that you intuitively pursued. Lots of complex threads you've integrated so skillfully (and stubbornly πŸ™‚ . Bravo. [ more ]
Rachel Cannon A little of my story of self. I didn't belong. I didn't fit the molds that others cultivated or expected. My life often has felt like a confluence of paradoxes. A small girl who loved every sport I could find. A quiet athlete who thrived in roles of directing how the team played. An athlete who went home to devour everything I could learn from encyclopedias, sat in the bleachers before the game doing AP Calculus work, or taking a university engineering exam while teammates relaxed on the...

What are the gifts you bring to your community?
Toinette Neube Hello Everyone, Great to hear how others bring their gifts to their communities. I feel I bring the gift of Empathy and kindness to my community. I am a born empath (which is sort of like an achilles' heel), but I have learned to set boundaries but still work in my gifting. I feel kindness can be a by-product of empathy and it definitely is a characteristic I strive to walk in daily. I currently work in several capacities in my community from homelessness to running my non profit Nurture... [ more ]

Roger Gustafson I bring, among other things, the gifts of listening and perspectives to my community. Listening provides an open space where people can venture out and share those tender experiences that otherwise they might safeguard by bottling up. That tendency to protection, though, deprives the community of the abundance of all its members' experiences, what we label as good or bad but all of which are essential to making us who we are. Perspective also is a valuable gift in helping us realize that our... [ more ]

What have you learned when conversations get hard?
Maria Oah That's a really great learning, @Carol Wilson . There's so much power in slowing down and noticing what's happening in a conversation. [ more ]
Carol Wilson I have learned that it is helpful to be an observer of the conversation, even when a participant, which allows me to stay curious and interested in the other and direct my personal investment to our relationship rather than to my participation and position. [ more ]
Roger Gustafson One major learning I've received in difficult conversations is my tendency to close down or defend when conflict arises. I need to be alert to this tendency and challenge myself to stay with the conversation when I sense it rising up. Another learning is the freedom to choose how I see a hard conversation. I can choose the perspective of seeing it as an unpleasant exchange or as an opportunity to learn. [ more ]

John Stanley Hello Megan, John Stanley here, SW Wisconsin, Gays Mills, Pop 500 or so. My wife Jamee and I are new here (Four years full-time) so very grateful, willing to be helpful and trying to figure out how. Lots of latent energy here from people of good will. I'm trying to figure out my role in helping release that energy. Weave seems to be doing that in cities. I wonder how it can be done in a five county rural area. Last week we had John Noltner in for dinner and over night. The connection was... [ more ]

Jeudy Mom Hey @Nathan Hult ! Love your heart for international students and friends! My Family is very interested in adopting in the next few years, when our youngest is in elementary school. would love to hear your experience. I'll send you a note! [ more ]
Nathan Hult Jeudy. It is good to see you and what you are doing. I lived in San Pedro nearby in the early 70s. I was with the US Army Band, LA as a musician back then. Since then we have ended up in Logan , UT where we interact with international students at Utah State U on a weekly basis. We have kids from Syria and Vietnam who we have informally adopted, and now international grandkids. We like the idea of being international weavers. It makes for a very large and beautiful rug . Hope we can meet... [ more ]

John Stanley Hello Frederick, it’s John Stanley from SW Wisconsin. Having now joined the network, spoken to Kate in MN, Megan in NE and had John Noltner for dinner a week ago here in our home, I wonder if I could find time on your calendar. Why? It might be fun to talk about the Y since we both have that history and I’m curious about how Weavers intersect with what wants to happen in my part of the rural heartland. I’m now in my encore season, only doing what I’m best at and with those I love. I’ve... [ more ]

Charles Perry Thank you Ms. Griffin it is truly a blessing to do something you love by impacting the lives of others. We never know how a kind word or jester of love may change a persons life in that moment in time. I just want to do good that is all Peace & Love. [ more ]
Tina Griffin Mr. Perry I would first like to acknowledge, how you allowed the Prison system, to turn your life completely around, a true sign of what the devil meant for evil, God turned it into good for his Glory. You are such an inspiration to many people, and a excellent father to your children Your willingness to go out into the communities, and share your story, to try and influence people, to bring someone up, says a lot about your character, and integrity. May you continue to be inspired, and... [ more ]
