Shifting Gears

Tomorrow, I’ll be sharing a post on God’s promise of comfort. I know we all walk through difficult days and the promise of His comfort brings peace to our hearts like nothing else can! We certainly serve an amazing God!

Today, I wanted to share a few things with y’all! 

About the book: I feel like you ladies have walked with me through this whole publishing process and I want you to know your encouraging emails and cyberspace hugs have meant the world to me! So THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

It looks like my study on Ecclesiastes is coming out this week or maybe next and I’m still amazed that God would use this little southern girl from the westside of Jacksonville to write a study on His Word – especially a book like Ecclesiastes! Exceedingly, abundantly girls! Our God does exceedingly, abundantly!

I’ll let y’all know as soon as I do!

About Speaking: I also want to let you know I’ve started to shift gears from focusing on writing to refocusing on speaking. (Oh, don’t get me wrong – I’ll still be writing, but not quite as much as I did this year! :-))

I’m now booking for 2012 and would love the opportunity to speak at your next event. I realize choosing a speaker is a very important component to the success of an event. so I hope you’ll take a minute to check out my speaker and bio pages and see if you think I might be a fit for the needs of your next event.

I’m also excited about opportunities to share with women’s groups who will be walking through my Ecclesiastes study. If your small group or Sunday School class chooses to do my six week study, Ecclesiastes: Understanding What Matters Most (and I hope they do!),  I’d love the opportunity to come share a message during your study.

About Speaker Chicks: As part of the Speaker Chicks team, I’d also like to let you know that there are oodles of resources on our website to help you plan your next event. If you subscribe to Speaker Chicks, you’ll be able to download a free event planner to help you in your pursuit of a successful event. I think you’ll find Speaker Chicks of great help for whatever you’re planning – whether a large conference or a small group meeting at Starbucks.

Finally, if you have any questions or would like to know about my availability, please don’t hesitate to contact me at You girls know it would bless me big time to have the chance to meet you in ‘real’ life and share some Jesus talk with you!


  1. Praying that God will open just the right doors for you, girlie! I am blessed to call you my friend!

  2. So excited to see how God uses you, or should I say, continues to use you. 😉 One of the gazillion things I've learned over the last year is that we don't have to have it all together for God to use us. That is REALLY good news for me, because if I had to wait for that, I'd be waiting forever. 😉 I promise to pray for you my friend. Love to you!

  3. Melanie ~ Thank you SO much for you sweet words! And you know I love you back, my friend! You sharpen me and I'm so thankful for our friendship!

  4. Shelly ~ I love the reality that we don't have to be perfect before God will use us. He uses us in spite of us. He uses us in the midst of our madness and in the middle of our messes! He's SO good!

    And thank you SO much for your prayers! I can't wait to meet you in real life one day soon!
