Bio:For the past fifteen years, Joe Jekot has been fully engaged in the craft of loving, learning, and healing all that is human in the lives of young people and adults. In his vocation as a teacher, youth minister, and an addictions counselor and a certified Parent Effectiveness trainer, Joe has discovered the profound educational and healing power of storytelling. It is through the intimacy and power of a heartfelt story that human beings discover the art of living a human life. Whether it be a fool tale, a myth, or a personal family legend, stories are the "stuff" or the raw materials from which we create and live out our dreams.
