Sholly’s “Rising” Is Here Again!
My sister, Sholly was so beautiful. Inside and Out. She was my Chief Cheer-Leader. I can’t even articulate how much I miss her.
It’s funny how you can be so sad and excited at the same time. The Shola Adefolalu Gąska Foundation was birthed from a deeply painful place BUT in the one year plus we’ve been in existence, God has, through the Foundation, done some exciting things that have helped me bring purpose out of my pain.
Today, I’m excited to ask you to please block Saturday, September 29 for Sholly’s 2018 ‘Rising’ event. Last year, we held our very first one and it was tagged “Sinking in Grief yet Rising with Purpose” and was one of my 2017 highlights. This year’s theme is “When Life Goes Low, We Rise Up” and I’m trusting my PapaGod to makes it a day all our guests remember for a long time.
Sholly turns 38 on September 25 and while I don’t know if they have birthdays up there, you can be sure we’ll be celebrating her life on the 29th.
It’s going to be a one of a kind Celebrating-Sholly-Peer-Coaching-Workshop-Thanksgiving-Worship-Fiesta-Mental-Spa-Just-Chill-GodsGotYou-event! So if anyone asks you what Rising is about, and you can’t say all of the above, just say it’s a “Party with Purpose”😂👍.
More than anyone in my life, Sholly taught me how to keep rising no matter what life throws at me. There are so many people learning this same lesson and three of such people will be sharing HOW they are doing it with us that day. So excited!
I really hope you join us. Come, let’s learn how to keep “Rising Up” no matter how low life gets sometimes.
Watch this space for Speaker and Venue details! It’s free but if you plan to come, please send your name and gender to firstname.lastname@example.org.
It will help our planning😊👍.
