     Are you a podcast listener?

     If you are, you're in for an introduction to a great new program. If you're not, you're in for an introduction to a fabulous new genre for finding inspiration and insights at the easy click of a switch on your phone or computer. Lori Lee, the host of the Love Your Story podcast, will share the inside scoop on the creation of the Love Your Story podcast, her personal story, and the exciting, empowering, and inspiring story tools you can find through the podcast to help YOU create your most brilliant life story. Have questions? This two-way discussion will provide some food for thought about your own stories, and maybe even some inspirational ideas for creating them on purpose.

    Once Upon A Time there was a single mom who raised two boys after ditching 3 husbands. She was a professional writer who started out rock climbing, skiing, hiking and river running, then writing articles and books about her adventures. Years later this woman went back to school to get her masters in Folklore where she studied the personal narrative researching its functions and structures. She looked for peace inside her own broken story and through her research and emotional intelligence training, she found it. Her personal journey was rocky and filled with emotion, but what she learned she brought to the airwaves in the Love Your Story podcast, a weekly program discussing tools and tips for living your biggest, boldest and most satisfying life story. Lori speaks, coaches, and holds workshops that help people find and tell their stories so they can find the freedom that she has. While the specifics of how she lived 'happily ever after' are still to be determined, she takes responsibility for creating her own life story with love.

Breakfast Exchange,
It's been a privilege it serve as president of the Ogden Breakfast Exchange Club the past year. I am so blessed to be a part of the national organization of Exchangites focused on "Unity in Service" in our own communities. Established May 16, 1972, the Ogden Breakfast Exchange Club celebrated our 45th anniversary this year!
We continued that long tradition of community service this past year receiving the "National Service Award Recognition." Service projects this year included our annual Ogden Christmas Village Hot Chocolate Booth which raised over $15,000 for our Shoes for Tots campaign. Big thanks to our sponsors and all the volunteers for helping raise funds for hundreds of pairs of shoes to be provided to children of need in Weber County. 
OBEx Club service projects also supported Prevent Child Abuse Utah by sponsoring this year's child abuse prevention programs at Horace Mann Elementary and the PCAU annual golf tournament fund-raiser. Members also helped distribute food to children as a "Bridging the Gap" partner with Catholic Community Services to provide weekend meals. 
Most recently Ogden Breakfast Exchange worked with the Ogden Noon Exchange to restore lighting to the Freedom Shrine on the Ogden River Parkway so that we can soon fly U.S. flag there again.
I'd like to thank this year's dedicated board members; my employer, Bruce Davis, dean of Continuing Education and Vice Provost at Weber State University; and our wonderful OBEx members for all the great support this past year. It's been an honor to work with all of you. 
I look forward to many more opportunities to serve our community together in the coming year under the great leadership of our new president, Joshua Haacke. 

Yours in service,
Kristie Nielsen
Ogden Breakfast Exchange Club 2016-17 President
