Henry Ford is a well-known, actively involved member of our small suburban/pseudo-rural Northeastern Ohio locale. I first made his acquaintance at the Twinsburg Public Library, a favorite and “happening place” of our close-knit community; however his reputation as a kind, sensible man of good character preceded him. Since our meeting I’ve shared my involvement in genealogy research and my absolute passion for multicultural studies and family history. He has since joined me as a member of the African-American Genealogical Society of Cleveland.
Henry is committed to not only the biological folks he claims as family, but also the ideal of family as a God-ordained collective of multi-generational relatives sharing histories, strengths, themes, and traditions. He unashamedly shares his belief in a power greater than himself and credits the Lord for the successful culmination of hard work and faith. Even so, if you read between the lines you may sense the Lord’s presence and guidance throughout the years over many generations. Although Henry is telling the story of the family reunion that “almost wasn’t” the more important message is a life lesson which resonates beyond the pages of this book, and that is the importance of preserving relationships, particularly family relations and having the Lord at the center of your plans.
Having had a successful corporate career in addition to leadership experiences, Henry used his voice to share his story with humor and vivid imagery that creative readers can follow closely with understanding and affirming nods as they turn the next page.
People are often shocked at my tendency to give recognition to others such as VISIONS Newsletter articles, Black History and Women's History recognition, etc. Much of it is learned behavior from mentors and others. Harvey Alston is such an example, so I'm not surprised that he has shared "The Attitude of Gratitude T.A.G." document above. In turn I am sharing with clients, family, and friends. Trust me, making this a habit will pay huge dividends in your life. To download in PDF format, CLICK HERE!

As I was viewing a video presentation delivered by one of my mentors during his visit to Cleveland last Fall, I spotted a dynamic young lady in the audience who is part of the Twinsburg Heights LEAP Program. The LEAP Program has been molding young people into informed, inspiring, passionate citizens and leaders.
The significance of this is that I am currently working on ways to get LEAP staff, students, and others to the Destined for Greatness Conference in Columbus, Ohio. My spotting this young lady was no accident or circumstance; but was destined to occur.
The young lady pictured at the top left, along with others in the packed house last Fall, are proof she and others (you too), are in fact Destined for Greatness; you just need to CLICK HERE for more information. You can make the weekend even more rewarding and memorable by sponsoring and traveling with a family member, student, or associate. Registrations have begun coming in.
