Episode 122: Create a Message that Sparkles

Jan 9, 2023

Have you ever watched something on YouTube only to realize halfway through that you really didn’t care about the topic at all? Or maybe you felt that way while watching TV, and a commercial that didn’t resonate with you came on. I hope you weren’t overcome with the thought, “I feel like I should care about this, but I don’t…” This message wasn’t meant for you, so don’t feel guilty! Keep listening to find out what the 3 key elements are to create a compelling message that reaches your target audience.

While kayaking with my guy, God showed me what it takes to create a message that sparkles. During this episode, I share the story of what I discovered and learned from it. Listen in to find out what it takes to bring your person into your story.

Highlights from this episode include:

  • God works in mysterious ways (2:07)
  • Three elements that make water sparkle (4:29)
  • What a compelling story requires (6:15)
  • The “sun” of your message (7:44)
  • The “wind” of your story (12:48)

While a compelling story might be YOUR story, it’s not about you at all. It’s about your one person and how you can integrate her into your story. I pray the Holy Spirit works in and through you so that you can craft a message that your person needs.

I’d love it if y’all came to join the conversation in the Facebook group – Take the Stage Speakers and take a moment to share with us! If you aren’t on Facebook, find me on Instagram! I would love for you to share it with me.
