Our regional Nantan, Kardashian, shared a story about troubles between a longtime married couple.  He reminded the PAX that F3 meets a lot of different needs and that we needed to not keep it a secret.  Men need this in type of accountability and motivation in their lives.
Coffeteria was enjoyed by PAX afterwards.
