SPEAK EASY – Speak Your Way to Success

Public speaking is listed as American’s number-one fear, before death at number five, and loneliness, weighing in at number seven. Guess that means that most of us are less afraid of dying alone than of making fools of ourselves in front of others.

When you are asked to speak or introduce yourself do you get nervous? Sweaty palms? Do you feel like you want to throw up? I know that feeling!

Whether it’s a basic intro, your 1-minute at a networking event, a business presentation or prepare for a Ted-talk you can learn the skills to excel, be calm and confident.

As a little girl my Dad would always put me on the spot to sing for the family or friends. It made me feel awkward, uncomfortable and I didn’t know what to do.  What am I supposed to sing (say)? Do they really want to hear me?  Will they make fun of me? Is my Dad crazy?

Have you ever had those thoughts when you are put on the spot?

Through the years I’ve learned what to do, the tips and tricks to be comfortable, and own the stage. I want to share what I’ve learned with you so you can be calm and confident when someone asks you… So what do you do?  or Tell me about yourself.

In the SPEAK EASY Workshop we will go over:

  • What to do
  • What to say
  • How to stand
  • How to calm the nerves
  • What to do with your hands
  • How to walk on stage/platform or in the room

Would this make you feel better and more comfortable? Then join me.  I will be holding these workshops in Las Vegas and in Kansas City.  Check it out and get your ticket.

Spill Over ..

overflow 3

When asked the question, “What do you know that you know?   Down in your soul, your heart of hearts, what do  you know about yourself?”  

My answer is I know that Jesus loves me, and I know I born to sing, to share His message joy and hope with the world.  Now what does ‘the world’  actually mean? The world, can be my brother and sister (I used to teach Sunday School in our garage), my backyard, church, community, whatever the ‘world’ turns into.  I am a singer.  I am a speaker.  I am a child of God. I am a Christian.  So whether it is singing a ‘Christian’ song that talks about Jesus, or a song at a birthday party, maybe an aria from an opera, I am a singer, I am a Christian.

I recently read a book by Jefferson Bethke called JESUS > Religion.  I mentioned him a few weeks ago and another one of things he talks about in his book is how the world is trying, and actually doing a good job of, is putting Christians in a box.  Here is the point.  Society says it’s OK to sing about Jesus if it is ‘Christian’ music, or it is ‘Christian Art’, like a picture of a cross or a church, if it’s in church or a ‘Christian’ concert.  It has labeled us and basically expects us to stay in our Christian box, does that make sense?  The world doesn’t want us to spill over into the other areas of the world.  Well, that is just nonsense.  

We live in the world and walk in the world. We are here to be a light, to shine in the dark places, to share His love no matter where it is, grocery store, baseball game, restaurant, school, work, hospital, doctor’s office, wherever we go, even on the telephone with the phone or cable company. (I know that can a hard one 🙂


I have never liked being in box, told what I should and should not do, what is proper, what is not.  I believe I am to live the life I am called to, to sing and share Christ’s message of love and hope through music, the spoken word, my life. 


One of the greatest compliments I have ever received was when someone close to me told me he never believed in Jesus because he has only felt judgement and meanness, until he knew me.  He could feel the love.  This humbled me beyond belief.  Oh that this was always true.

So Christians let’s just SPILL out the love of Jesus to everyone, let’s just drip it all over.  Let’s be open and accepting of each other, as children of God. We don’t have to preach it, Bible thump it, we just have to live it. I mean… after all, that is what Jesus did.



‘Til next time –
