How did you become involved with Our Community Listens? I had a desire to listen and communicate differently. In Fall 2017, a friend recommended that I consider CST. The class had such an impact on my life! It dramatically improved the way I connect with people. After being invited to become a facilitator, I was inspired to impact others with this life-changing experience to BE THE MESSAGE.
How do you most often find yourself using what you learned in CST? I listen more than ever before using the skills every day. When I use reflective listening, I experience more enriched conversations. The most rewarding thing for me on this journey is seeing my relationships with family and friends become more authentic.
Three things that make me smile: God’s faithfulness, being with my husband and children, spending time with friends.
Your idea of a great day: Spending quality time with family and friends enjoying a cookout with lots of laughter and having fun together.
