Wow. Life’s been so busy, I’ve fallen behind on just about everything, it would seem – including updating my blog. But, there are some upcoming and past appearances that I wanted to make sure readers knew about.
October Speaking Engagement (for women)
I am thrilled to announce that I will be speaking next Wednesday, October 12, at the Awaken to the Best women’s spirituality group at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton in Carmel, IN. The meeting begins at 1:00 and is open to the public, though there is a registration page on their website. I will be sharing a new talk that I’m very excited about. I haven’t settled on a title yet, but it’s something along the lines of: “How trusting in God brought the peace that surpasses all understanding during the worst time of my life, and WOW, God wants everyone to have complete trust in him and here are the keys – in my humble opinion – to building that kind of trust.”
But that’s a little long, right? So, I’m working on pairing it down. 🙂
How I’m going to fit all of that into a 45 minute presentation is still up for grabs, too, but I’m confident it will be AWESOME, regardless, so come join us!
November Speaking Engagement (for couples)
I will also be speaking at Marriage on Tap on November 12th. This is a great date night with a little spirituality thrown into the mix! The event goes from 7:00 to 9:30 at the Willows near Broadripple in Indy. I’ve struggled with this topic A LOT, because I am so far from the perfect wife. BUT I’ve identified one thing that I do do well, and that is – once again – trusting God. This talk will be much different, though, since it’s geared toward married couples, and will revolve around trusting God with every aspect of your marriage, including finances, the very life and well-being of your spouse and children, and (eek!) your fertility.
Registration is required, just follow this link (and contact the parish office if you have trouble because I’m no help.)
Recent Media Appearances
I got to speak with Danielle Bean (love her!) on her “Girlfriends” podcast this week. Her topic for the week is “Are you too busy?”. I was able to listen to the first fifteen minutes or so but I’ve been too BUSY to listen to the rest, including my own interview. What I did hear included great advice on that whole “busy-ness” thing, which clearly I need to take. Here’s the link if you’d like to listen.
EWTN On Location
When I was in Chicago for the Catholic Marketing Network tradeshow and Writers Guild Conference, I was blessed to speak with Doug Keck of EWTN. The show aired a few weeks ago, and it turns out that mine wasn’t the only fantastic interview (LOL). Actually, the show is filled with interviews with many fascinating authors, and a great opportunity to learn about many amazing Catholic books that you might otherwise never even know existed. I’m somewhere around the half hour mark, but – seriously – you already know about A Single Bead, and hopefully you’ve already read it (if not, what are you waiting for?). So be sure to watch the whole show!
Prayers that you will be blessed abundantly today!
