Dr. Shanon Brooks is coming to Southern California on Monday.
He begins, what we refer to in our house, as a “whirlwind tour” on Wednesday, November 11.
It lasts until Saturday, November 21.
With multiple appearances each day.
That’s a lot of whirling.
Trust me on this.
He will be speaking about teaching vs. educating, the tenets of freedom and how to perpetuate them, what an American is, and a lot of other really interesting things.
You’re going to have to trust me on this as well.
You won’t be nodding off or fighting sleep.
But since I’ve already been privileged to hear portions of both lectures, I am speaking with confidence.
Listening to him beats watching television…
I’m hoping that you’re hanging on every word today, as the members of our family consider themselves to be extremely fortunate to be associated with Dr. Brooks and his family.
He’s the “lucky” winner of the first profile spot on Tommymom.com!
I’m not certain he and I are sharing the “lucky” sentiment.
You may hold your applause for later. Possibly until after you’ve heard him yourself.
Because of his near rock star fame…okay, that could be a slight exaggeration…
Several of you are asking, “Just who IS Dr. Shanon Brooks… really?
I, Tommymom moderator, and personal friend, am going to attempt to answer this now-pressing question for all of you. Hey, it’s a rough job, but someone’s got to do it.
1. He’s a fabulous, over-the-top, excellent, hard-to-exceed-this-level-of-commitment, mentor.
Who gets pretty passionate about the principles he’s sharing…
Or, it could be that seriously green wall that’s doing something in this particular case…
In any regard, he’s somewhat rare, in that he’s not only broad-based in his acquisition of knowledge, but is also deep.
A true leadership education, by the way.
Don’t try this at home. He would actually love for you to experience the opportunity of acquiring this type of knowledge from home, and mentors classes where you can do it!
Please click on the Face to Face With Greatness button on this website for further reference. Just understand that his website is currently under construction…
You won’t be bonding with these people from “the dental office” much longer…pardon our virtual dust…
FABULOUS things to come…
Shanon’s been studying and when I called, Bill Gate’s line was busy.
Sons #1 and #2 are two of the fortunate mentees. They think he’s the “BOMB”.
Do you see the beauty in this? They are often the slang, pop cultural balance to his PhD in Constitutional Law...along with the other two degrees he’s sporting.
Just a quick inquisition…
When was the last time you even read The Constitution, much less acquired a PhD in its “law”?
Moving right along…
Did I mention he is passionate about mentoring and the entire learning process?
I love, love, love to dialogue with him.
My husband claims that when he and I do this, people are often running for cover… Perhaps a slight misunderstanding on my husband’s part.
You will always know where you stand with Dr. Brooks.
And he will always stand.
For a return to the American tradition of loving marriages.
He and his wife, Julia, have six beautiful children. Guess what? They’re all being mentored in the style of a Leadership Education. Shocking, eh? I mean, who does this guy think he is;
practicing what he preaches? There has simply got to be something wrong with him!
To old fashioned values and principles. He’s seen here “going to see a man about a horse.”
Scratch that. He’s ON the horse…
In the great outdoors; of which he is an avid fan.
He does manual labor.
He’s deeply committed to friendship…
With the man who wrote this book and has personally mentored Shanon for over 20 years.
He puts his money where his mouth is, by rising insanely early each and every day, to study the principles of this country.
And what it took to make it great.
And what it will take for all of us to continue to enjoy our freedoms.
Never mind about the thousands of great classics he has read and studied from the world over.
Is he for real?
Painfully so, at times.
But I love him for it. The honesty can be somewhat brutal where I am personally concerned, but I know that I am always the better for it.
And it’s always done in love.
You won’t walk away unchanged. His love for this country and people would be hard to parallel.
After all, look what he is doing for us.
For 10 days.
Is he for real?
I don’t know.
You be the judge.
Perhaps he simply walks amongst us.
Right now, I can type this with confidence, because his hands are at “10 and 2”, as he drives here to serve me and you; and he knows nothing about these “slightly irreverent” pictures.
I feel a “dialogue” coming on!
Hope you make the effort to catch a “whirl”….I promise you’ll never be the same!
