Lloyd Reeb is a successful real estate developer and owner of retirement housing who made a mid-life transition, looking for greater meaning, joy, and impact in his second half. To his surprise, he discovered that he was not alone in this journey and that many talented leaders are longing for midlife renewal.
Lloyd has had the privilege of investing 20 years helping leaders plan their second half. He helped launch the Halftime Institute, a global team that teaches, coaches, and connects successful men and women in pursuit of significance.
In Lloyd’s words, “When all you’ve done or own seems to matter less …and your heart craves more meaning, joy, and balance…when something triggers in your mind that you’re entering your second half of life and you’re unsure what your calling is for the next season… you’re in Halftime.”
Lloyd has taken the Halftime message around the world: speaking, teaching and coaching individuals through the journey. As a result, he understands the issues that surround your Halftime in a deep and practical way.
Rhonda spent her first half in education; her own (a Bachelors and Masters from Baylor and a Ph.D. from Fordham University) and helping others with theirs as speaker, lecturer, teacher, and Professor at Dallas Baptist University. She is also an author of a book for parents that encourages reading and writing with children.
The Pittsburg, Texas native met her husband at church, where he drew her name from a pool of 500 women to become her secret Valentine. Almost three decades later, she and Keith have two daughters who are married and now live and work in Oklahoma City. Rhonda and Keith find being intentional with their family even more fulfilling and important as they treasure their sons-in-law and one-year-old grandson, Louis.
As Vice President of Admissions, many find their Halftime journey begins by interacting with Rhonda. Her nurturing and caring spirit helps people get enrolled into the Halftime Institute.
She is a 2013 Halftime Institute alumna and considers Psalm 86:11 her favorite verse: “Lord, tell me where you want me to go and I will go there. With all my heart, I will praise you.”
“I first read Bob Buford’s book several years ago, but my Halftime really began when my youngest left for college. I knew then I didn’t just want another job, but wanted to give back to God by making a significant impact for His kingdom.”
As the Programs & Marketing Manager for the Halftime Institute, Alyssa Heffley combines her creativity, Type-A planner personality, and desire to serve others in her day-to-day life!
A Native Texan, Alyssa grew up in the DFW suburb of Prosper. She left the Lone Star State to attend The University of Alabama (Roll Tide!), where she graduated Summa Cum Laude, earning a degree in Advertising with minors in Consumer Science and Italian.
Prior to joining the HTI team in January 2017, Alyssa served in Communications and Marketing roles for both a North Texas food bank and a ministry in Uganda, Africa. Through these experiences, God touched her heart for international ministry. Her passion for writing and experiencing new cultures through traveling are areas in which she is excited to see the Lord work in her future!
One of Alyssa’s many favorite verses is Micah 6:8, “He has told you what is good; and this is what the Lord requires of you: to act justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.”
