CCN Domestic Violence Conference is Huge Success

The Creative Communication Network-sponsored Domestic Violence conference on Friday, October 20, was a great success.

Thanks to Springcreek Church for hosting this event, and for the vendors who shared their products and services with the attendees.  The conference benefited Hope’s Door New Beginning Center in Garland.  Here is a group of participants listening to John Sharp about Battering Intervention:

This is the incredible Wendy Sheriff, Detective for the City of Garland Police Department, who investigates Domestic Violence and Sex Crimes:

Most importantly, I want to thank the six speakers who each shared a perspective about “Are We Winning the War On Domestic Violence?‘  All of the attendees are more up-to-date, and better informed, as a result of spending time at the conference.

Admiral McRaven’s Quote on Daring in Life

In the book that I will present at the First Friday Book Synopsis at the Park City Club this week, Admiral William H. McRaven, wrote this in Make McRavenBookCoverYour Bed:  Little Things That Can Change Your Life…and Maybe the World (New York:  Grand Central Publishing, 2017).

You Must Dare Greatly.

If you want to change the world sometimes you have to slide down the obstacle head first.

Life is a struggle, and the potential for failure is ever present, but those who live in fear of failure, for hardship, or embarrassment will never achieve their potential.”

In honor of Domestic Violence month, I encourage you to wear a purple shirt, which is the symbol used to remember the victims and honor the survivors each year.  If you do not own a purple shirt, then a purple tie, ribbon, or anything else of that color will also work.

The link to register or make donations is here.

Here is the flier for the event, with all the details, including schedule, speakers, location, and other information.  You can click on it to view, download, or print.
