SPEAKING

Sharing Morning Words at the Breathe Christian Writers Conference, October 2017

I was first placed in front of women, behind a podium with a microphone, at the ripe old age of 21. Oh, my! What were they thinking? Over 40 years later, life has made me wiser and more “sanctified” — a term we use in my fellowship to identify women of a certain age who have logged a few miles following Jesus.

I have been a speaker at women’s conferences and Bible studies. I’ve also given talks to groups of home educators. While I considered my podium days to be a thing of the past, the Lord knew otherwise. In obedience, I’m picking up that microphone again and asking Him to give me the words.

I would be honored to speak to your gathering on any of the topics listed below. I am also willing to prepare a message centered around a topic of your choosing. You can be assured anything I tackle will have sent me straight to prayer and to the Word of God for instruction.

Let’s talk about learning together! E-mail me at www.ialochamire@gmail.com

Living Well in Exile

Based on Jeremiah 29, I share “Four Be Attitudes” from the life and teaching of the prophet Jeremiah.

Where Faith and Fear Collide

Based on 2Timothy 1:6-7 “For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands, for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.”

Telling Our “Slice of Life” Stories

Based on these words from Eugene Peterson, author of The Message:

“Apart from the before, the now has little meaning. Now is only a thin slice of who I am. Isolated from the rich deposits of before, it cannot be understood.”

This topic is covered either as a message or a hands-on workshop using a tool I created to help you capture and tell your “slice of life” stories.
