  1. Check out Toastmasters International at http://www.toastmasters.org. Find and visit a local club to see what it’s all about – they are all over the world! I joined to get better at speaking articulately when asked to speak in the moment, without any preparation. It helped me to become savvy at this and so much more. Join to get over your fear of public speaking, to find your voice and the courage to use it, and to have fun practicing and mastering the art of effective speaking in the company of others who are on the same journey, who will support you and who will, in many cases, become lifelong friends!!!From the Toastmaster International Website (eff. 05/10/13):Looking to develop speaking and leadership skills?

  2. Go to http://www.5lovelanguages.com/assessments/love/ and take the Love Language Assessment of your choice (e.g., adult-single, adult-married, teen). This should take about 10 minutes and it’s FREE. This is a fun one to ask all members of your family or inner circle to do, if they are willing, and then let it be the leaping off point for some great conversations and sharing, learning and growth. Practice honoring your own and one another’s love languages. It will enrich your life and nourish and strengthen your relationships.
