After a year’s worth of work, including lost files and video retakes, I have completed a speaker demo video. There is a long list of things you need to do to let others know that you are a speaker, and this is one of them. Whew! I’m glad to mark it off my list.
By now you’ve come to expect honesty from me. Last night as I thought of sharing the completed video with family and friends, with my cherished blog readers, and on Facebook, I nearly had a panic attack. It’s just hard to put yourself out there, as the videos are imperfect and if you look closely, you will see a lot of wrinkles! LOL
It’s hard for me to promote myself, but what I’m really promoting is the message God has given me to share with women. I’m going to be brave and share it with you. I know you will love me anyway.
If you are friends with ladies ministry leaders or church pastors, please share the video with them. Click here for the link. I don’t have any expectations of you, but it would help me if you would share it on Facebook as well. No pressure.
Thank you for helping me to build this ministry of hope and grace for imperfect women.
Four years ago, when my children were entering high school, I sought the Lord about what I was going to do when they were out of my nest. One of the things He directed me to do was to attend Proverbs 31 Ministries “She Speaks” conference. At that conference, I learned the steps I needed to take to have a speaking ministry. For the past six years, I have spoken and taught at my church, but I felt like God was calling me to move outside the walls of my church and speak in front of more groups of women.
I remember the moment as if it were yesterday. I was at a prayer meeting at my church. For many years I went to a Friday morning prayer meeting, dragging along my homeschooling kids with their backpacks full of workbooks. And now the children were entering high school. I looked at them, and me, and them, and me, wondering what “me” would look like after “them.” What would I do when they left home?
God spoke to me three things, and like a good little type A personality, I made a list:
1) Become a trained Precept Inductive Bible study teacher
2) Attend “She Speaks,” the Proverbs 31 Ministries conference for speakers, leaders, and writers; and
3) Learn Spanish.
