A few weeks ago, I had the chance to present the Christian Creative Nexus and my writing ministry to a local church. It was my first time doing this, and it was only with the support of my family that I got it done; my husband created those awesome banners (see above) through one of his graphic-design contacts, and my 12-year-old daughter taught me how to use PowerPoint!
I admit, there were moments leading up to the event when I felt stressed. Challenges and distractions of all sorts popped up beforehand, but the Lord was faithful and He guided me safely through the minefield. And speaking in front of a group of people itself was a challenge. Sometimes I’m totally relaxed and it goes well, and other times the nerves get the best of me. Thankfully, that night, God showed up big time. I felt relaxed, excited, a little nervous, of course, but still ready to go.
I decided to share part of the video here, as it sums up what I’ve been blogging about. Unfortunately, due to technical difficulties, the beginning of the recording was lost. But the Lord preserved the most important section so, in under 10 minutes, you can get a clear sense of the vision He has put in my heart.
Enjoy! And feel free to leave a comment below.
