I’ve had the great experience of speaking with Toastmasters International for three and a half years. I have shared my story and the hope and healing of Christ with women’s groups, as a lay sermon, as well as women’s retreats, with the additional benefit of intensely beneficial activities which promote healing. She has also spoken in secular settings, at a community college and is open to do so again. I bring compassion, empathy, and a bit of humor to the very difficult issues which surround abuse and trauma. It must be noted, that I am a survivor and not a counselor, nor do I provide professional counseling. I focus upon issues of healing from abuse and trauma, learning to value oneself in the Lord, and the hope that we have in Christ, life eternal! As a speaker, I bring compassion to people who are hurting, providing many avenues for experiencing how immeasurably valuable every person is. My presentations can be emotional, life-changing, and at times, intense. At the end of a women’s retreat, a lady said, “I have learned more about myself in one weekend, than in 32 years!”
