June 26th, 2006: Like the seasons of the year so are the seasons of our lives. Now that summer is finally here and the weather has gotten warmer, so has my heart wanting to know what the Lord wants me to concentrate on for this season of my life. As we are told in Ecclesiastes 3:1 (NIV) "There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heaven."

I just signed with a new booking agent, Nashville Speakers Bureau. Now, when I first considered a speakers bureau my first question to myself was, "me, a speaker"? Then as I reflected on all the churches and women's conferences I went to over the past several years, I would be asked to come to the church as a singer and a speaker. The pastor or women's ministry event planner would always assume that was what I would be doing. The strange thing to me was, I never once told them that I was a speaker. I used to sort of chuckle to myself and say to God, "Okay Lord, if You are with me, I know I'll be able to do it".

When the Nashville Speakers Bureau contacted me about signing with them, I could only believe that it was the Lord's way of opening new doors. As time has passed, it feels very natural to not only sing at events but speak also.

I love sharing with people about the joy of God's love in my life. I also love singing and speaking about the assuredness of our hope in the Lord. The songs I write have always been a personal reflection of that fact but now as a speaker too, I get to explore and expand on my discoveries about the Lord Jesus. Like the seasons, our lives are always changing. The one thing we can always count on not changing is His love for us. I trust in that fact every time I am faced with change. I know He only wants the best for His children no matter what season of life we are going through.
