Kyle Joseph Schwarber & Kyla Josette SchwarPURR: A Tale of Two Powerhouses Embracing Change and Chasing Wins





“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven.” — Ecclesiastes

Just like the seasons changing, Kyle Schwarber seems to again be heating up at the plate, as he is known to do each June.  His recent batting average and home run statistics are impressive, mirroring his feline namesake, Kyla’s, fearless summer exploration as she travels weekly across states.

While Kyle and Kyla may share a birthday and a love of power hitting, their summer approaches are decidedly different. Kyle brings the thunder, while Kyla brings the purrfect blend of clever cuteness and chaos.

So this Monday, let’s draw inspiration from their pursuit of excellence.  Whether you’re crushing goals at work or exploring new hobbies, remember to find your own summer wins and celebrate them!
