“We were never intended to do this life alone. We were never intended to minister alone. We were never intended to walk through life alone. God made us social creatures.” – Mary R. Snyder.

Today's episode explores how we as speakers can find community.

Highlights include:

  • The importance of finding community (1:07)
  • Seeking out other speakers (2:07)
  • Where you can find this community (3:32)
  • Conferences (5:14)

  • A prayerful approach (9:23)

I hope today's episode inspires you to get involved, show up, and be intentional! And I pray this helps you find your community of like-minded speakers.
