This past New Years Jamie and I went to Florida with great friends to spend some time with LIFE Founders Dan and Lisa Hawkins and Orrin and Laurie Woodward. With temperatures reaching up into the 80’s we spent time jet skiing, going to the beach, and taking a ride on Woodward’s 76-foot yacht.
Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think Jamie and I would be friends with couples as influential as these two couples. From meager beginnings both have used leadership principles to launch a company that is already getting world wide recognition for its accomplishments. I should have dreamed bigger because for the past two Christmas Holidays a couple with teaching backgrounds are living a lifestyle never available had we remained in the teaching field. Do you want to know the best part? The people who went with us that you see in the pictures are from all walks of life. Engineers, factory workers, construction workers, police officers, stay at home moms and because of their decision to step out from crowd and lead, their lives are being changed forever!
What I love about the smiling faces that you see in these pictures is their huge hearts for helping people. In a time when most everyone seems to think the economy is tanking, this group has found an industry this is and always will explode. With that, do you know what all of these people talked about when we chatted with them? They talked about the people they are going to help and the difference they are going to make in this world with the blessing they have been given!
My family and I sure am blessed to be associated with such a great group of people.
Enjoy the journey, Steve Leurquin
