What was once my greatest fear, has become one of my greatest blessings.
Public speaking. Many of us fear it or don’t like it. The story behind how this once-crippling fear has become my blessing is quite amazing. Speaking in public now brings me great joy.
I consider it an honor when I’m given the opportunity to encourage various audiences. Sharing real-life, hope-filled experiences help us relate to one another. Such opportunities have included sharing messages during church services, encouraging women in large business groups, offering hope through uplifting talks at women’s gatherings and luncheons, and leading small groups and Bible studies.
I’m speaking next at our next BYOB and B event, Simplify the Season, on December 9.
Every other month I host an evening of encouragement for women. BYOB and B (Bring Your Own Bible and Beverage) is a bimonthly event held in the Cedar Rapids, Iowa area and is designed to equip, refresh, and encourage. It’s held in an intimate, upscale setting and topics vary according to the season or time of year. Come check out the next one!
I’d love to encourage your group or church! Contact me if you or someone you know would be blessed by encouraging, life-filled words.
