Hi Friend,
This year is off to a great start for all of us at Texas Leadership Summit and we hope the same goes for you!  Our February newsletter is jammed packed with a lot of important information.  Please take the time to read it, so you don't miss any details!
We had a full house on 1/10 when special guests from Remnant Alliance came to speak to Brenham Pastors & Church Leaders, photos included below.  Thank you for all who came out and joined us!  We are so excited they are returning THIS MONDAY to share more with us!  Everyone is invited!  Keep reading below for all the details.  Feel free to share & help us get the word out. 
We have recorded several new Podcast episodes and are extremely excited to release them for you!  A new one released at the end of January and 2 more are coming your way this month!
Early voting for the primaries begins on the 20th of this month.  We have included a lot of information on how to vote, as well as, where you can find information on all the candidates. 
C.U.B.S. is a local organization that formed shortly after our 2022 Texas Leadership Summit in Brenham.  They are spear heading a much needed reading tutoring program with BISD.  They are in need of volunteers, for this program to be a success. If this sounds like something you would like to participate they are asking you attend a volunteer meeting so you can learn all about the program.   More details below.
This month Texas Leadership Summit hopes to encourage you to be a leader that leads with their heart.  Elections can bring out some not so pretty sides of people on occasion and as Godly leaders, we need to remember that biblical, faith based leaders, should always love others like Jesus does.

new TLS Podcast episode!
Don't miss the most recent TLS Podcast episode, “How To Prevent Leadership Burnout” (Part 1)!  
Navigating leadership responsibilities in a Christian context can sometimes feel like walking a tightrope, with the constant pressure to avoid mistakes, the weight of past traumas, and the challenges of a potentially hostile environment. Burnout, a state of emotional and physical exhaustion, can creep in when these pressures become overwhelming. As a Christian leader, finding ways to prevent Burnout is crucial for maintaining a healthy balance in your life and effectively serving others.
In this episode TLS Founder, Tim Webb visits with special guest Meagan Butler, a Licensed Professional and Chemical Dependency Counselor, who also has her Masters in Biblical Counseling and Christian Education.  Meagan, a Christian leader dedicated to helping other leaders navigate, overcome, and prevent Burnout, explores simple strategies to help you steer clear of Burnout, allowing you to lead with resilience and grace. She talks about the three scales of Burnout, the impacts of dysfunctional and hurting leadership, and how the baggage everybody brings to the ministry contributes to Burnout. She also shares the internal and external factors that contribute to Burnout. Tune in to learn more!
New episodes will be released each month, see dates & upcoming Podcast titles below.  We will be speaking with guests within each pillar (Business, Education, Politics & Church) and asking questions to help us all become better Christian leaders in todays world!  Let us know who you'd like to hear us interview soon!
More episodes will be released monthly!  Make sure to subscribe to the Texas Leadership Summit Podcast through your favorite mainstream Podcast platform, to be notified when a new episode is released.  Don't miss the upcoming episodes released this month!

This year is probably the most important election year that our country has ever seen.  Based on figures from the Texas Secretary of State website, with 2022 being the most recent year reported on the site, voting stats show that in 2022 Washington County had 24,644 registered voters and only 13,972 of those registered (56.70%), actually voted.  In 2020 for the presidential election 72.70% of registered voters in Washington County voted.  We need to make sure every registered voter is getting out and voting across Texas and the country.  We have included some important dates and links for you to use for the upcoming Primary Elections.  A lot of this pertains to Washington County however the links can be used for wherever you are located.
We will also be sharing social posts this month to remind folks to get out and vote. Please follow us on Facebook & Instagram and be on the lookout for these posts, so you can share them with your friends to encourage others to get out to vote!

Past voting history - if they are up for reelection how have they voted on important topics?  Did they vote in line with what they have promised Texans?
If they are a new candidate running - what is their history in business or in any type of leadership roles they have had in the past?  What are their priorities for Texas?  Who all endorses them and who has donated to their campaigns?

Many Meet & Greet opportunities are happening this month.  We want to encourage you to go to as many M&G's as you can even if the candidate doesn't represent the party you typically vote for and ask the hard questions to them to see how they respond.

Voter education is super important.  Do your research, meet the candidates, reach out ask them questions and learn what they stand for, so that you can make the most educated vote possible.  Pray for wisdom & decrement when voting.  Pray for those running and continue to pray for those elected.
