The real power of love!
(your ticket price includes a couple of slices of pizza!)
February is the month of love. It's not necessarily a light and fluffy topic though. Love is one of the strongest forces in the cosmos. It's something everyone craves but only the bravest can truly face.
Come to the RA Park Officers' Mess on February the 24th for some real inspiration. You'll wish every day was a momondays.

The real power of love
Viktor Frankl explained that "the angels are lost in perpetual contemplation of an infinite glory". What's the glory that has these celestial beings so caught up in eternal attention? Frankl said it was love that is so powerful. Where did he develop that epiphany? Amidst the horrors of Auschwitz! Love transcends, buoys, supports and nurtures. Our February show is all about that power.
Highlighting the night will be Kevin Johnson. In 2009, Kevin responded to a wildfire in the Herring Cove area. He helped rescue 8 people from homes impacted by the fire and then became trapped at the bottom of a dead end road. His fight to survive the fire is an astonishing story in itself, but even more powerful is his story of suriving the PTSD that followed. He has a friend who loved him right through that darkness and we're going to meet her again. It was because of Maggie that Kevin's now with a loving woman and that story of love is something Kevin wants to talk about. I'm glad he's going to share it with us.
We've got Lynn Flewelling. Lynn left a successful corporate career to find her purpose. She wanted to start living a life of meaning, and spent the last year and a half on a journey of self-discovery. Lynn believes that everything we need to be happy and whole, already exists inside of us. Lynn's story is relatable, and her common sense approach inspires others to tap into their own joy.
Barbara Deg will be coming along. She's a fascinating woman with a story about overcoming adversity and creating an incredible business where she's leading the way in helping businesses root out powerful adversaries.
Opening and closing the show will be Donna Marilyn. She's a celebrated radio personality from 105.9 Seaside FM who will be releasing a brand new song in support of the Society of Atlantic Heroes called aptly, PTSD. She's an incredibly talented woman with an incredibly storied past. She's filled with wisdom and music and you're going to be incredibly thrilled that you came out to hear her.
What a night. Come on out and socialize with all kinds of wonderful people in a fun, positive environment. Put in your own speaker application to speak at the next show… or grab some friends and get your fix of heart, humour and happiness.

Tim retired from the Royal Canadian Air Force in 2012 as an HR Officer with a speciality in Dispute Resolution and team-building. He has also experienced a broad spectrum of work environments, having served in operational squadrons across Canada and in United Nations missions overseas. In recognition of his achievements, in 2008 he was inducted into the Order of Military Merit by then Governor General, the Right Honourable Michaëlle Jean
After retirement from the RCAF he was invited to come and work with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Canada’s Atlantic Region where he replicated his successes from the military environment in the community of policing and public service. With almost five years’ experience in that arena he retired and now works as a contractor, delivering training and services in a broad spectrum of first responder and security sector environments.
However, no matter where he’s worked, the common experience he’s witnessed our universal love of stories. That’s what drew him to the momondays experience, especially in Halifax … a city renowned for its traditional love of tall tales and community yarns.
