  • Moleskin
  • What is your 1st F “why”? One of mine is giving myself an opportunity to endure through difficulty in a safe and controlled space. When @Tiny Dancer or @Heidi (1st F Q) tells me to do 100 burpees, I know it’s going to be hard. And it will be a chance to test myself in difficult circumstances….and when life’s difficult circumstances come (trust me, they will), I will have some understanding of how I will react.
  • Note: It wasn’t until I got home this morning that the connection between my moleskin and the name of this AO hit me. I hope that this AO is truly a “Proving Grounds” where we can discover that we are stronger than we think we are, but also not strong enough to do it on our own. It takes brotherhood and a loving God who will never let us down to make it through life’s challenges.
Love you guys,
