It Is Both My Joy And Honor To Attend Events Where I Can Encourage And Inspire. Below Is A Brief Summary Of My. Most Recent Events.  If You Would Like More Information On How I Can Be A Part Of Your Event, Contact Me For Details!

My trip to Fort Lewis was a full one!  Three events in one trip.  I had the honor to again speak with the spouses of special ops soldiers.  They have a special place in my heart as they go through a rapid tempo of deployments and trainings.

The first event was with a small group who went through Sacred Spaces as a Bible Study.  I joined them on the group FB page at various points to connect and encourage them.

      

They gave me the best gift ever- one of their group shirts that just happened to have the WW logo on it 🙂

   

Next up: and evening of empowering some of the strongest, most elite spouses I have ever met.  We talked about resiliency, but more importantly GRIT

 

 

The following weekend was an opportunity to do another Strengths event for the Fort Lewis PWOC ladies.  We went to a gorgeous camp site where we stayed in cabins that looked like train cars.  It was a fantastic event that ended in a powerful prayer the ladies did over me and my friend Sarah.  I so love these ladies and their prayers (and yours) have more of an impact than you could know.

It was another great event at Fort Drum, NY!  The women’s PWOC invited the military spouses of Fort Drum to discover their strengths and find a new sense of purpose.  Each time I do this, I am more convinced that our military spouses are in need of encouragement now more than ever.  With an increase in military tempo around the world and the continued struggle to find employment, spouses are exhausted.  What I absolutely LOVE about living out your strengths is that it opens your eyes to who God designed you to be.  There may be talents that you don’t even know you have!  There may be talents that other people in your life have said were weaknesses- but only because they don’t see the world the way you do.

At Fort Drum, spouses were emotional as they discovered the truth about themselves.  That there was far more to love about themselves than they thought.  Lies from the enemy were shown for what they were and the truth of God prevailed.  Lives were changed.  Women were set free.  Women walked away affirmed in their current purpose and others discovered plans for a new direction in their life.

I went back to Washington, DC for the annual Armed Forces Insurance Military Spouse of the Year Awards. The day before, though, is a time for 250 of the most influential military spouses descend on Washington DC to not only network, but be empowered.  I was invited to speak at the TownHall and spoke on the Hero’s Journey, sharing the journey that ever super hero must go through in order to find their purpose.  By learning to embrace your back story, listen for your calling, and take the risk of adventure, every superhero must then be willing to enter the battle of their lives- themselves.  I provided and exciting and inspirational talk that was captured on Facebook Live and was later reproduced as an episode for my podcast.
