It was the summer of 2014, and my oldest daughter had just finished her junior year of high school. Because she has a dream of playing basketball in college, she was competing on a summer AAU basketball team. We were just starting a 10-day trip to travel to Kentucky and Tennessee for two tournaments and clinic, and the same week an idea about a blogging tribe that had been brewing in my head started to come to fruition.
I remember sitting at the hotel desk in Kentucky, talking with Craig Vroom on the phone and sharing ideas about the Compelled Tribe. We worked on a name for the tribe and the introduction letter, and we each wrote a blog post about the tribe.
Fast forward to a year later.
We have been so blessed to have 30+ bloggers on this journey with us. We have shared stories of triumphs, sorrows, losses, and joys. We’ve blogged about families, kids, PD, leadership, technology, fears, education, and more. We don’t judge or compare... we celebrate, we inspire, we share, we learn.
I personally feel so fortunate to learn from the incredible members of the tribe and to be a part of this experience with them.
