Reflections after a Full Day of Speaking

Wow, what a day! It was an absolutely incredible day of speaking.

I lead assemblies for grades K-2, 3/4, 5/6 and 7-12 and lead a parents workshop. Whew! I feel like a truck hit me, but in a good way.

Here are some reflections:

1. I Must take care of myself. In order to speak that much in one day, I have to be even more diligent about taking care of myself. Speaking is the most draining think I do. I’m an animated speaker and I throw out lots of passion and energy. That drains you quick. I need to keep staying away from the pop and keep making better food choices and working out!

2. Every time is a gift. I need to never forget that every opportunity to speak and teach is a GIFT from God. I had the privilege of looking into hundreds of students, faculty and parents eyes today and I had the blessing of being able to address them. It’s a GREAT gift from God.

3. Thankful for my support. I literally have dozens of people who willingly pray for me and go to God on my behalf. They probably get tired of getting texts/messages/ and emails from me asking for prayer, but I can’t do this without a ton of prayer support. I am so thankful for every prayer.

4. I have a great support team. Oh my goodness! I had two incredibly great friends come out today and film my talks. I had one of my board members attend an assembly, I had my booking manager and worlds most incredible volunteer give her day to help me. I had another new friend spend most of the day helping. I have a great support team.
