By nature, I am a communicator.
I love to write, but I also find great satisfaction in presenting a concept to a group. Whether teaching a class, mentoring a group of job seekers, preaching a sermon or speaking to a large dinner group, I love the challenge of conveying an important message through the spoken word. I’m not always good at it, but I keep trying.
I’m an introvert, but when it’s time to take the podium, I pour everything I’ve got into projecting myself, summarizing each subject in a clear and understandable way. Speaking is far more difficult than writing, but every writer needs to learn this skill. There’s no editing. What you say is what you get. Raw and unvarnished. Audiences change, lights fail, projectors break and people sneeze. Speaking is more challenging than any writing I’ve ever done. Once you spend a few minutes at the podium, you’ll find it’s in your blood. . . or it’s your greatest fear.
Drill down into this page of my web site and listen to a podcast of one of my speeches. Learn more about Crisis Pregnancy and how you can respond to the challenge of women in crisis. Be challenged to make a difference through community activism. Learn about Islam and how we are called to respond to believers who follow Allah. Listen to ideas about mentoring students, or dive in to learn more about my writing. I’m glad you stopped by to listen.
