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.

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, strategic top CliftonStrength, and desire to serve others in her day-to-day life.
A native Texan, Alyssa grew up in the DFW area. She left the Lone Star State to attend The University of Alabama (Roll Tide!), where she graduated Summa Cum Laude and earned the distinction of Outstanding Advertising & Public Relations Graduate.
Prior to joining the Halftime Team in January 2017, Alyssa gained varied experience in promotional, marketing, and communications roles – both in the for-profit and non-profit sectors. From creating corporate promotional campaigns, to strategizing volunteer mobilization at a Food Bank, to developing a child sponsorship program for a school in Uganda, Africa, every step has prepared her for serving Halftimers in her sweet spot.
When Alyssa isn’t dreaming up creative ways to help people with smoldering discontent (a key indicator – you’re in Halftime!) find and fulfill their Ephesians 2:10 Calling through Halftime, she can be found leading Young Adults in the Dallas area through Bible Study Fellowship International or looking for a fun spot to enjoy live music.
One of Alyssa’s many favorite verses is Ephesians 3:20-21, “To Him who is able to do exceedingly, abundantly beyond anything that we could ask, pray, or think, according to the power at work within us, to Him be the glory forever and ever.”
