    I am encouraged that you’ve entered this race; my hope is that you leave this experience with the principles (the basic need-to-know) skills to not only survive, but thrive!

    As you work on you, everything else around you will make sense!

    Aleena,
    Today you start W.A.R.2021, from a different perspective. I am sure you are nervous, and maybe a little timid bc of all the new faces, but don’t be. Embrace those other ladies and show them, thats it’s okay and just how amazing RR is. Use your time to help others but don’t forget about you! Work on those leadership skills by listening to the other leaders and not being afraid to try new things. Dad and I couldn’t be more proud of the young lady you have become, and we can’t wait to hear about this year’s adventures.

    It was so great to see you yesterday! I’m so proud of you….what a blessing you are going to be to these girls! I love that you know right where they all are and you can understand their pain. You will be such a great role model for them all. I’m thanking God that He has you here! He has you exactly where you need to be and He has SO much to show you this week, Aleena! Keep your heart open to Him and keep listening! I’m specifically praying for you to hear His voice this week to know exactly what these girls need, to grow in your faith and grow closer to God, and to see what an impact you have on others! You have such a great story to share!
