I struggle with judging people, but I am working hard on this aspect of my life. What I should be doing instead is loving people. While reading the Q Source I came across this tidbit from section F5 on Preparedness, “A HIM’s commitment to Preparedness will only take him so far down the road to greatness. He could have the heart of a lion and still fail for lack of a critical ingredient, and that is love. If he does not love the people he leads more than he loves himself, he cannot put their interests above his own.” I am challenging myself and others to understand that we don’t know what a person is going through day to day or even minute to minute, lets take the path of loving that person rather than judging them.


Don’t knock the silkies till you try ’em! Once you go silkie you never go back!

QIC enjoys large workout groups, lets him know exactly how many ways people can hate burpees.
