What was once my greatest fear, has become one of my greatest blessings.

I realize I’m not the only one who has ever feared public speaking. There’s quite a story behind how this once-crippling fear has turned into a blessing that now brings me great joy. I’m reminded each time I speak of this personal and amazing experience. It’s a blessing to share it with others!

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 Hus Presbyterian on Sunday, August 26 at 9:30 a.m. in Cedar Rapids.   


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 cafe 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.

Here’s an example of a message I shared at Salem United Methodist Church on June 24, 2018:

Who Is in Your Boat?
