17 strong today!  Bonus points to Judge Judy for joining me on the ruck this morning!
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

My challenge to everyone this year to is to Get Comfortable Being Uncomfortable! Do this personally, physically, and spiritually.  For those who have never been on Q, take that next step and lead. If you have not been to other AOs for a workout, go to all the AOs. Try a Saturday workout which is an hour long or go the Burbs for a longer beatdown. Personally, talk to someone different at work or try to repair a fractured relationship. Spiritually, set a positive example for others and be a witness to someone who needs it (Jude Judy recently started a bible study group). We tend to be complacent and get in routines.  Break that routine and do something different this year.

MOLESKIN:
