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

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

Since that inauspicious beginning, I’ve been a speaker at women’s conferences and led Bible studies. I’ve also given talks to groups of home educators. While I once 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 one 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 ialochamire@gmail.com


Topics, Talks and Workshops

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.
