My First Public Speaking Engagement

It is a funny thing. . . . This thing we call life and the journey it takes us on. As many of you know, I am a singer, not a speaker. Even the thought of having to say one word in front of a group of people with all eyes on me scares me tremendously. I know it sounds crazy! I can sing in front of thousands, but I cannot speak. You have to remember, the words of a song been written. I can hide behind them. It IS very different.

However, I am discovering that I am very willing to talk about my journey, to tell my story. I want to help people change their lives; take their lives back. I want people to realize they can be proud of who they are and of what they have accomplished. If that means standing up in front of people and talking about it then, so be it.

Tomorrow morning I am speaking, for the first time ever, at Westside Church's Learn to Run launch. If you have a chance, you should come. There is something special about learning to run with people. There is something special about growing together, learning together, and holding each other accountable to a process. In addition, you get to hear me. :)

See you there!
