Jules Leotard. Jules (1842-1870) developed trapeze acts as we know them today (and the costume - though calling it a leotard did not catch on until the 1880s). He was the son of a gymnastics instructor and was poised to enter Law. However, his love of and awesomeness in acrobatics led him to his first performance, in 1859 in the Cirque Napoleon.

Super Heroes decide what they are going to think and as God’s super heroes of faith we “get to” think the thoughts of God after Him...In a challenging situation, we can respond with, 1 Corinthians 2:16, I have the mind of Christ.Tough day at work, try on Philippians 4:13, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Somebody wants to eat your kid for breakfast, not literally, but, you can choose to think Romans 8:37, and share with your child that they are more than a conqueror…

William John Wills (1834–1861) British surveyor who also trained for a while as a surgeon. He achieved fame as the second-in-command of the ill-fated Burke & Wills expedition, which was the first expedition to cross Australia from south to north, finding a route across the continent from the settled areas of Victoria to the Gulf of Carpentaria. Wills died alone at a place called Breerily Waterhole on Cooper Creek in South Australia. Burke died soon after.
