“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” – Mother Teresa

What the heck happened to summer? I am not sure how you ladies feel, but it seems like we got cheated. I am not ready to let go. Snow days causing a late summer start and then the polar vortex of July nearly pushed me over the edge. The Theisen crew has been running fast and furious to get in our summer activities. Shocking, I know. Memories will be made regardless, so we’re making the best of it. Our summer highlights include two nasty sunburns, one dead fish, loads of basketball, serene drives to Long Lake to drop the kids at camp, beautiful days at the cabin with family, and cherished conversations with friends and family around the dinner table. Ladies, let’s use these last weeks of summer to make memories and check a few more things off the summer bucket list.

This Community of Women issue has truly inspired me. I am so excited to share with my readers the most amazing stories highlighting women giving back to the Stateline area. How fortunate we are to live in this great community. We have a heartwarming piece about how various local ministries have come together to help others by putting together ‘bags of faith’. You’ll be truly motivated reading our fitness feature inspiring strong women. Another article addresses this bittersweet season of back-to-school, and tips from local moms about how to manage the stress involved. Enjoy the fun story about two friends who have found a way to have fun with their ‘witchy’ friends, while also helping local causes. You’ll find plenty more stories like these; and it’s our hope here at 5ive that you’ll be stirred to start your own journey or encouraged in your current one.

All the women featured in this issue offer unique and valuable gifts. The common denominator is how they all care deeply for their families and communities. I am personally and genuinely encouraged by their accounts and by the opportunity for involvement right here in the Stateline. I challenge myself, as well as my readers, to seek out our passions and get involved. Together, we have enormous power to impact the 5ive: faith, family, friends, fitness, and finance not just for self but for many.The journey continues.
