We had met Les Brown before for a workshop at our spiritual center, Unity of Phoenix, but what was really exciting was having him as a our minister for 3 weeks!
Les had always had a dream to be a minister and the lead minister at Unity of Phoenix, Rev. Richard Mraj had always had a dream to meet Les Brown. So when they met and got to spend some time together, it worked out perfectly that while Rev. Mraj was going to be away, Les cleared his schedule to stand in. We were in for an amazing 3 weeks!
What was really fun was when our little guy, Tanner, then 10, got to meet Les after the first service. Tanner had heard us talk extensively about Les over the years and had seen many of his videos. So he was so excited to meet him not only to tell him the Les Brown quotes he knew but to also tell him his own quote, “If it’s impossible, make it possible!” Les loved it!
It was just really great to have an extensive amount of time with Les. He took a genuine interest in what who we were and what we did. It was also great to hear much more in depth stories and teaching because he had the time with us.
Here’s one of my favorite videos from Les:

Melissa and Kevin,
Wow, just loved this blog! I have to say Les Brown is a recent discovery of mine and he has opened the doors of my mind that I didn’t think were closed! So glad you were able to spend time with such a giant of a man! May God continue to richly bless your whole family!
He has so much content over so many years, Maria. Thanks so much!
Wow, that must have been great! Les Brown is awesome!
Yes it was and yes he is, Cathy!
