REFLECTIONS ALONG THE WAY

From the desk of Steve Macchia
Dear Friend,
 
A blessed Lenten season to you and yours, as together we await the hope of the resurrection on Easter morning. This time of year is always filled with rich spiritual imagery, poignant biblical teaching, a prayerful attentiveness to the state of our souls and a longing for all that awaits us in eternity. The road that leads to the cross invites us to surrender our hearts into the loving embrace of Jesus, who “humbled himself by becoming obedient to death — even death on the cross.” (Philippians 2:8) In addition to Easter, we long for the signs of springtime to emerge, as creation explodes with beauty, color and joy. The LTI family remains hopeful that the pandemic will soon be behind us, and a new normal will bring new life to all.
 
Prayerfully in Christ,

 

Steve Macchia
Founder & President

NEW LTI WEBSITE
Have you been to the new LTI website yet? Check it out!
Do you shop on Amazon? Are you aware of the Amazon Smile program? Amazon will donate .5% of your purchases to the charity you designate in your profile. If you don't already have a designated charity, would you please consider adding LTI to your profile?

Here's how you do it:
• On a mobile device, open the Amazon App, and click on the three horizontal lines in the menu, scroll down to Settings and then choose Amazon Smile. You should be able to find us by searching "Leadership Transformations" 

• On a desktop, go to https://smile.amazon.com/ and look for the option to designate your charity. Search for "Leadership Transformations" 

When you shop:
1. If you're shopping via your mobile device, you don't need to do anything once Amazon Smile has been activated in the settings. Just shop as usual via the app.
2. If you're shopping via a web browser on a desktop, you need to shop/purchase at https://smile.amazon.com/ in order for your purchases to benefit your charity, so bookmark that URL! When you're shopping at smile.amazon.com, you'll see confirmation in the top banner "Supporting: Leadership Transformations" (and you can see how Amazon's donations are adding up based on your purchases!). Other than that, smile.amazon.com looks and functions exactly like amazon.com.

If you'd be willing to designate LTI as your Amazon Charity we'd appreciate the Amazon donations you could generate through your Amazon purchases. Every little bit helps!
