Brenda’s Blog – October 1, 2013
Welcome to the Breakfast With Fred Leadership Institute website. Our organization’s mission is “stretching and blessing the next generation of leaders…to the glory of God.” The on-line archive of wisdom God gave my Dad, Fred Smith,Sr., is housed at breakfastwithfred.com You will find a leadership library filled with timeless principles, pithy statements of truth, and challenging questions.
Our on-campus events are affectionately known as “24 hour leadership blitzes” because a team of leading men and women (mostly over 65) land on campus and immerse themselves in the community for a power-packed 24 hours. We come to start conversations and create connections. We are in classrooms, chapel, athletic sessions, community outreaches, dorm conversations, mealtimes, and any other possible venue that gives us a chance to share leadership principles and our faith experience.
Bwfli.com is a way to continue the conversation.
Periodically I will host this blog spot. It will be a place to think about leadership in light of everyday experiences. I am an “out and about” person. I love listening to people’s stories and finding transferable themes!
Enjoy the website then grab a coffee and join me as we explore the paths God creates for us. Come back and we will start sharing ideas.
Please think about: 1) Who first said, “I believe in you?” 2) How has it impacted your direction? 3) What is the power of belief?
Dad once told me, “There’s magic in believing as long as you don’t believe in magic!”
