That's exactly what this week's NSD podcast guest Lori Hardacker has been trying to figure out and not just lately, but for the past 20 years. This first-time author has seen the ups and downs of dating for the past two decades and she shares all the laughter, joy, pain and tears in her ebook "Dating: What The F***!", available at datingwhatthefuck.com/. I promise you, it's a must-read/listen to account that'll have you cracking up and crying at the same time. . Much more than a first-time author, Lori is also an ingenious entrepreneur, dance teacher and RV adventurer...yes, RV adventurer! Originally from Massachusetts, this Southwest Florida resident went to Roger Williams University and received a BA in Dance and a minor in Theater. For four years, Lori owned and operated a successful dance studio and then created a traveling dance and fitness program that she brought to preschools, daycares, recreation centers and YMCAs in the New England area. Today she teaches tap, ballet, jazz, tumbling and creative movement to children 18 months to 6 years old and is known as the “Baby Whisperer”. Before Lori made Florida her home, she was living in her RV full-time, traveling and working around the country. She began this journey in May 2016 and worked in Maine, Florida, Tennessee, Texas, New Mexico, Michigan and Wyoming before taking an exit off the road in 2019. This entrepreneur extraordinaire also has a small event company for which she hosts singles events that cover dating, relationships, sex trivia and “Hound and Human Happy Hours”. And as far as marriage and children go, Lori is perfectly happy being single and taking care of her “kids”: one canine and one feline and she plans on keeping it that way. Take a listen and prepare for a fun-filled - and as Lori would say "honest AF" - conversation!

From having little experience traveling, to the 3rd day on trek being on the Baldy Saddle, Mariah Hughes had a revelation, and her life was changed for the better.  She returned home and was unrecognizable to her friends. Mariah went on to work seasonally at Philmont Scout Ranch for 9 summers. During her time as a ranger, she lived for hike-in days and the freeing confidence that a map and compass gave her.  Mariah speaks about the fatal lighting strike in 1988, of her role as CD reopening two backcountry camps that had previously been closed (Dan Beard and Crooked Creek), and she shares a mysterious tale or two. Mariah holds the title of the first and only female Director of Conservation, which was a role that Doug Palmer encouraged her to undertake - and quote, “one of the best decisions she made while working at Philmont.” Today Mariah is the Director of Operations at Snow Mountain Ranch, YMCA of the Rockies and an avid world traveler.

Muddling Toward Messiah Another new year is upon us and, when we arrive on Sunday, it will be the saddest day of the year. At least, that is what Brian Henson used to tell me. The day after January 1, the season of festivities is over, and everyone is pondering going back to the “same ol' thing.' For some, it will be packed with resolutions. I will see this at the YMCA when I won't be able to get on a machine for about a month. Diets will abound and “self-help” books will be best sellers. Yeah, I have been on that hype myself. Pardon me if I sound cynical. And yet the new year does signal new beginnings and new opportunities to “improve our character”, if you will. It also says much about the people we are. None of us is who we want to be. In view of that and the fact that most of life is more like a “path” (a long path) and not a “door” (a weekend where the ghosts of Christmas do it all in one night), the title of our next sermon series reflects realistically how true and lasting change and growth happens—muddling. The older I get, the harder change is. I find myself just trying to make sure I am muddling or stumbling in the right direction! So, from now through April we will be looking at the books of Ezra and Nehemiah. These two books should be read together. Talk about muddling, we see it here in spades. While spectacular things happen in the rebuilding of the temple, the rediscovery of Torah, and the rebuilding of the wall, it never seems enough: each event is sort of anti-climactic. There is so much here. God, keeping his promises to a wayward people; God, holding the king's heart in his hand; God, forming his people as a people of the book; and then our proclivity to overreach and think we can force change through law and method. Yet, in all of this, God's grace shines through and his never-stopping, never-sleeping, always-pursuing love for his people is present. Here is hoping you have a Happy New Year and that in this year we will know more of God's love to his always-wandering children. Blessings, Jim

Why aren't more people bothered by it? Then, Don Jr. said if Christians want to take back America they need to ignore Jesus' commands like “Turn the other cheek.” Kaitlyn says he's right. Skye responds to listener feedback to his interview about Gen Z, and Phil reads listener comments about abortion. Then, Kaitlyn speaks with New Testament professor Dr. Cynthia Long Westfall about Paul and gender. Dr. Westfall says we need to apply the same interpretive framework to what the Bible says about men as we do for women. Based on the weight of biblical evidence, she argues that the burden of proof isn't on those who say women should lead and teach, but on those who say they shouldn't. Plus, why are do so many Christmas cards this year fear assault weapons? One historian says you can blame the YMCA.

Here in Flower Mound, we have a lot of residents who love the small town feeling so much they never left. In fact, it is the caring community that has kept Jason Walter rooted in our town since the fifth grade.As he grew up, he stayed because he loved the small town atmosphere, convenient location, and many opportunities to serve. Following in his grandfather's teachings of devotion to community, Jason won the 2019 Chamber Citizen of the Year award. Jason has been the executive director of the Cross Timbers YMCA since 2011. After realizing his calling as a teenager through a summer job at the Y, he has been a part of the driving force ever since. Along with youth sports, the active older adults program is one of their most popular. Jason learned that a lot of their members came in just to socialize and drink coffee. He started drinking coffee just so he could have the opportunity to talk and connect with them! He's also very passionate about their financial assistance programs, which allows struggling families to stay engaged at the Y even through job loss or pay reduction. If you're looking for an opportunity to get involved in our community, consider the Y! They rely on a multitude of volunteers for their programs, especially youth sports. Jason loves watching the community step up every time there's a need, like parents coaching their kids teams. I loved Jason's answer about the house he and his wife live in, and how it speaks to his current life chapter! You can reach out to Jason at the Cross Timbers YMCA, or donate online at ymcadallas.org. As he puts it, the mission statement of the Y is to be there for all, and he is here for all of the community of Flower Mound. Takeaways from this episode:  Jason Walter has been the executive director of the Cross Timbers YMCA since 2011 and he is excited to raise awareness about the many programs that enrich life in the community!  They offer youth sports, active older adult programs, cancer survivor support, drowning avoidance training, diabetes prevention programs and so much more.  Many of these programs are dependent on volunteers, which makes the Y a great place to get involved.  Cross Timbers YMCA also raises money for families to continue involvement at the Y even through financial hardship - 100% of the money stays local.  Resources mentioned in this episode:Learn more about The Cross Timbers' YMCA, and their available programs:https://www.ymcadallas.org/locations/cross_timbers/health_and_wellness/active_older_adultsJason's book recommendation, THE NCG FACTOR, by Larry Kaufman:https://www.kaufman-larry.com/To connect to Jason please email:jwalter@ymcadallas.orgTo get receive the framework to help you know yourself better, or to know someone deeper, email me:nicole@nicolesmith.netTo listen to previous episodes, and to submit your application as a guest, please visit:https://aroundflowermound.com/

Sit down and buckle in and get ready for an inspiring and energizing conversation between Mighty Pete and Alex Oliveira, business mentor, entrepreneur, father, husband, and jack of all trades. Alex has lived and experienced his share of tragedy. He's seen some of his business ventures fail and has reinvented his path repeatedly. A lifelong learner and student of humanity, these days Alex consults and works with other businesses to help them grow through a process called “lead generation”. In this fascinating discussion, Alex shares his philosophy on life and work, what his true priorities are, and how he can be so successful while doing it all.  KEY TAKEAWAYS If you truly enjoy what you're doing, it never feels like work.  It's not just about work. Fill your life with passion and fun – whatever that means for you – and you will be a well of endless energy.  If you find ways to give back in life, it will find a way to come back to you.  If you do what you are meant to do, you will make an indelible mark on this world. BEST MOMENTS  (If he was stranded on a desert island) “I'd still be sketching workflows…because it excites me, and I'd think about the sales and the commerce and (it makes me) think back to when I was a kid, working at the flea markets with my parents.” “We're not going to be here forever, so how are you going to run your life? Are you going to let someone else run it for you?”  “Teach your workforce to tell their good stories about their life.”  “I want to learn more because it gives me joy to open my mind to things that I never thought were possible.” ABOUT THE GUEST  Alex redefines the word “passion”. Originally from Brazil, he immigrated to Florida in the U.S. when he was young, and he still lives about an hour outside of Orlando. He is an entrepreneur who specializes in lead generation and trains other business owners to maximize their own profits. Nothing slows him down – besides maintaining several businesses, speaking at conferences, and his consulting work, he hosts his own podcast, Dadpreneur, and is on the board of the YMCA. On the more personal side, Alex is a husband to his college sweetheart, and a father of four. He and his wife homeschool their kids. Whatever he turns his attention to it, be it in the business or family sphere, Alex does it with 1000% of his heart.  CONTACT METHOD Alex's LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/alexoliveira1/ Dadpreneur: https://dadpreneur.co/ Prediq: https://www.prediq.io/ ABOUT THE HOST  The ‘Mighty Pete Lonton' from the ‘Mighty 247' company is your main host of ‘Fire in The Belly'.  Pete is an entrepreneur, mentor, coach, property Investor, and father of three beautiful girls. Pete's background is in project management and property, but his true passion is the ‘Fire in The Belly' project itself. His mission is to help others find their potential and become the mightiest version of themselves. Pete openly talks about losing both of his parents, suffering periods of depression, business downturn and burn-out, and ultimately his years spent not stoking ‘Fire in the Belly'. In 2017, at 37 years of age that changed, and he is now on a journey of learning, growing, accepting, and inspiring others. Pete can connect with people and intuitively asks questions to reveal a person's passion and discover how to live their mightiest life. The true power of ‘Fire in The Belly' is the Q&A's - Questions and Actions section.  The ‘Fire in The Belly' brand and the programme is rapidly expanding into podcasts, seminars, talks, business workshops, development courses, and rapid results mentoring.

About Mike Brown and YMCA of Metropolitan Fort Worth: I have been with the YMCA for 28 years giving service to communities as a leader and advocate for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Over the past 15 years I have been blessed to serve as a leader in several YMCA's in our movement. I am proud to be the President &CEO of the YMCA of Metropolitan Fort Worth. I look forward to making an impact in our community. BUILDING A COMMUNITY At the Y, strengthening community is our cause. Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow & thrive. The YMCA of Metropolitan Fort Worth consists of 10 branches, as well as our resident camp, YMCA Camp Carter and the YMCA Sports Complex. The YMCA of Metropolitan Fort Worth serves Tarrant, Hood and Johnson Counties and outlying areas. Mission To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all. Vision The YMCA of Metropolitan Fort Worth's vision is to be the market leader in creating experiences that strengthen families. Values Our values embrace the universal truths inherent in relationships with others – Respect, Responsibility, Caring and Honesty. History of the YMCA The YMCA of Metropolitan Fort Worth is part of a worldwide organization dedicated to putting Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all. Founded in 1844 in London, England, the YMCA quickly became a popular organization. The YMCA of Metropolitan Fort Worth was established in 1890 when Fort Worth was just a frontier town. In those early days, a “Gospel Wagon” was used to transport young men from the streets of Fort Worth to rented YMCA facilities where their physical and spiritual needs were addressed. In 1903, the first YMCA was organized to serve Fort Worth's African American community, and in 1919 the branch became a part of the Fort Worth YMCA. The branch was renamed the McDonald YMCA in 1944 when William M. McDonald, a well-respected African-American businessman, donated a building which was used from 1944-1971. The McDonald YMCA moved to its Berry Street location in 1971 and merged with the Southeast YMCA to become the McDonald Southeast YMCA in 2013. During the 20th century, two legendary leaders of Fort Worth, Amon G. Carter, Sr., and his son, Amon G. Carter, Jr., were instrumental in helping the YMCA grow. Amon Carter, Sr., served on the YMCA board in the early years, laying the cornerstone for the Downtown YMCA building in 1924 and helping establish Camp Carter YMCA with a gift of land in 1948. It was Amon Carter, Jr.'s influence, after serving time in a WWII prison camp and befriending a YMCA worker there, that inspired the development of Camp Carter. Like his father, Amon Carter, Jr., also served as the board chair for the Downtown YMCA. After his death, the central YMCA building was renamed the Amon Carter, Jr., Downtown YMCA in honor of Carter's service as board chair. Through the years, a number of additional branch YMCAs have opened in the Fort Worth area, including the Poly YMCA (1937), which later became the Eastside YMCA, the Northwest YMCA, which began as the Northside YMCA in 1946, the Westside YMCA (1948), originally called the Arlington Heights YMCA, the E. R. Van Zandt Southwest YMCA (1952), which began as the TCU-Southside branch, the Airport YMCA (1985), the Southeast YMCA (1991), the Clark Nowlin YMCA (1991-2008), the Ryan Family YMCA (1994), the Benbrook Community Center/YMCA (2000), the Hood County YMCA (2006) and the Northpark YMCA (2008). In 2013, the Joshua Community YMCA opened in collaboration with the City of Joshua. Also, the YMCA Sports Complex was opened in partnership with the City of Fort Worth that year. At

Today I am joined by Liz Kunz and Allie Riley from Girls on The Run. For 25 years, Girls on The Run has been empowering young girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively uses running as the method of learning.  Sport specialization at a young age has made sports competitive and exclusive so much so that by the age of 14, girls are dropping out at twice the rate of boys. As a result, girls are missing out on the character building and life skills gained from participation in sport. The Girls on the Run program serves girls between the ages of 8-12, right at that critical point when their confidence is plummeting and their need for positive self talk, empathy, confidence and belief in self is so incredibly important.  Through their 10 week program led by volunteer coaches, Girls on The Run is helping young girls to make the important connection between their physical and emotional health when they truly need it the most.    About Elizabeth Kunz Chief Executive Officer  As a lifetime advocate for girls' and women's issues, Liz has always encouraged others to recognize the power they have to create and transform their own lives and the world at large. Liz spent the first decade of her professional life in corporate America before transitioning to the nonprofit sector in 1996. It was while working at the YMCA that she first learned about Girls on the Run. Its mission – inspiring girls to be joyful, healthy and confident – profoundly resonated with Liz, and she started volunteering for the organization in 2002. She joined the staff as Chief Operating Officer in 2006 and has served as CEO since 2008. Liz has presided over an incredible period of organizational growth and brings significant expertise to Girls on the Run in setting strategic direction and creating an inclusive culture of empowerment, gratitude and joyful purpose. Liz enjoys singing and dancing – particularly to alt-rock music – and if she won the lottery, she would buy land to rescue as many animals as possible.    About Allison Riley, Ph.D., MSW Senior Vice President, Programming and Evaluation With more than 10 years of experience designing, implementing and evaluating physical activity-based positive youth development programs, Allie oversees the development and delivery of all programming and training at Girls on the Run to ensure maximum impact. Allie earned her Ph.D. in social work with a specialization in positive youth development in social settings from Ohio State University. She also holds a master's degree in social work with a concentration in clinical practices with children and youth from OSU, a master's degree in kinesiology from Purdue University, and a bachelor's degree in psychology from the University of Virginia. Allie has completed multiple Olympic-distance triathlons, half marathons and a marathon.   Connect with Girls on The Run Website https://www.girlsontherun.org LinkedIn https://www.linkedin.com/company/girls-on-the-run-international Facebook https://www.facebook.com/girls.on.the.run.international Instagram https://www.girlsontherun.org Twitter https://twitter.com/GOTRI

131: Paying it Forward as a Nonprofit Leader (Michael DeVaul)SUMMARYPassion is often found in young leaders, while wisdom and experience are words associated with successful senior nonprofit leaders. Where are you on your journey of nonprofit leadership?  Do you realize the value of self-assessment? Michael DeVaul has been on both sides of that bridge for more than three decades in the nonprofit sector and reflects on leading by example through action.  In episode #131 of The Path Podcast, Michael shares his five steps to go from being a transactional leader to a transformational leader.  Patton and Michael discuss harnessing personal and professional experiences to be a more impactful nonprofit leader.  As a man of action, Michael is a role model for change, but he believes you must take action to make change.ABOUT MICHAELMichael is a seasoned veteran with 38+ years in the nonprofit sector. From Evanston, Illinois, he was a member of the Emerson Street YMCA and Ebenezer A.M.E. Church two strong black institutions which along with his extended family, helped seed his potential. In 2019, Michael was awarded the YMCA of the USA Carlos Sanvee award for his work strengthening emerging young leaders.  However, his highest honor remains the Champions of Change award given by the Obama White House for his efforts in community building and global work in Senegal and Bangladesh. Today, Michael serves as the YMCA of the USA National Director for Boys and Young Men of Color with a focus to lead reimagining policies, practices, and procedures across 100+ cities to improve the outcomes, impact, and economic mobility of all young men of color. He believes that to effect change you must first understand and develop your personal brand.  Driving culture involves reinforcing beliefs and behaviors that determine how an organization's leaders and the community they serve interact.  Only then can you address inequities for the purposes of reimagining an important concept called belonging. Michael lives in Charlotte and is most proud of being a husband, brother, father, uncle, and friend. EPISODE TOPICS & RESOURCESDavid Hawkins book Power vs. Force Learn more about building your own brand at BYOB TeamCheck out James Baldwin's The Fire Next Time“If you do not have a conscience, I cannot appeal to an absence of it” – Petra Hermans Ready for a Mastermind?  Apply Today!
