Confidence is NOT required to be a speaker. Granted, you will be nervous on stage. The great thing is that people won't notice your nervousness – trust me, they honestly won't. You're not going to want to miss this! 

“God has uniquely equipped you with a message only you can deliver. Yes, only you. Even if you have a message that closely resembles another speaker's message — you have unique relationships, experiences, and opportunities that make your message unique.” – Mary R Snyder.

Highlights from our conversation include: 

  • Why are you a speaker (2:07)
  • Are you walking worthy of the calling you received? (2:46)
  • What's one thing you've done today to walk out in your calling? (4:40)
  • What is God calling you to do today? (6:31)
  • Create a SMART goal (8:36)
  •  It's not a no; it's a not right now (10:03)
  • We're going to link arms in this (11:36)

Your calling trumps your confidence. You are called to deliver your God-given message to the people God's places in your path. Keep your eyes open and move forward in your calling. Have you found your calling over confidence? I'd love it if y'all came to join the conversation in the Facebook group-Take the Stage Speakers and share with us! Or feel free to ask questions. Not on Facebook? No worries, you can always find me on Instagram or text me! I would love for you to share with me.

Ephesians 4:1 – Therefore I the prisoner in the Lord urge you to walk worthy of the calling you have received, walk worthy of the calling you have received here that with all humility and gentleness, with patience bearing with one another in love, making every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.

2 Timothy 4:2 – Proclaim the message; persist in it whether convenient or not; rebuke, correct, and encourage with great patience and teaching.
