Notes from Steve

Making the Rounds with Dr. Hurt

Today (October 12th) is my 54th birthday. It’s 5am, and I’m getting ready to take a kickboxing class. The day started at 4 am with “candlelight coffee”. Shelly and I usually start the day with quiet time together. I told her earlier this week that I feel more like I...

“Focus on the Good in Front of You” I just enjoyed the day with about 50 leaders from our organization at the first annual Iowa Regional Leadership Development Institute (LDI) event. We heard 3 speakers from the Studer Group. It was moving, and I came away inspired and hopeful! The...
