Kirksville or Bust!

September 12, 2012 ~ I am so fortunate to be involved in Greater Missouri Leadership this year because of these awesome ladies! There is never a dull moment when we are together and my life is better because of them!

Greater Missouri Leadership Challenge is a traveling symposium for the state of Missouri. We have been to Columbia/Jefferson City, Kansas City and now Kirksville, MO! We will graduate in November while we are in St. Louis.

While in Kirksville we learned about the rural community and farm life. It was one of my favorite places so far as we got back to the basics. We heard from some very passionate farmers and small business owners that take care of their animals and feed them well rather than commercial places that feed the animals fast and breed often to meet the demands of our nation. We got to tour Kraft Foods (picture up above) and see the process that bacon goes through to put it on the shelf.... I love bacon!

Each one of these women bring something great to our group. We all have busy lives but they make time to attend these sessions! I am thankful to have had the opportunity to meet them!
