Speaker

MicrophoneIt is said that writers must speak and speakers must write. With that in mind, I offer workshops on writing or spiritual development.

In 2004, I journeyed to New Jersey for CLASS (Christian Leaders Authors Speakers Service) with Florence & Marita Littauer. They encouraged me at that time to begin my own speaking ministry. It’s coming about in a different way. In the past, I’ve spoken at and led ladies retreats,  Mother-Daughter banquets, and presented workshops on both writing and spiritual development at one- and two-day conferences/retreats. From 2003 until 2006, I led a women’s Bible study in my home. My background in community theatre gives me additional confidence for public speaking.

On April 1st, 2018, I became Managing Editor of Almost an Author.com. www.almostanauthor.com  I will attend additional conferences, to meet with prospective contributors.
