Jeanne Hettich Farnsworth: Secrets, Shame, & Community


Jeanne Hettich Farnsworth, introduced our year of building community with "Secrets, Shame, & Community"! She shared a deeply personal story of welcoming in vulnerability in order to connect rather than isolate.

Brene Brown has written, "I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship." Jeanne will encourage you to examine what holds you back from connection with community. 

“Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen.” 
― Brené Brown, Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead
