It seems impossible Next Step Speaker Services was launched in my heart only four years ago this month. My friend Holly was traveling with me to an event, and she asked me how things were going with the Proverbs 31 team. I went on and on about the blessing our team is to me and how their experience was shared in every way.
When I needed help developing messages, I went to my new-member coach, Micca Campbell.
When struggled with my first biosheet, Renee Swope kindly helped me.
When honest feedback on my messages was needed, Karen Ehman’s challenge and encouragement was invaluable.
When I couldn’t see the flaws in my marketing materials, our executive director added her expert eye.
Everyone was further down the road than I was, and each one was generous when I was in need. I explained to Holly what a gift it is to be a part of a team. She followed with this life-changing question, “I wonder what women do when they are in ministry by themselves?”
I knew the answer…they’re lonely. I knew, because I lived it for several years before I joined the Proverbs 31 team.
In that moment, Next Step Speaker Services was born. My passion to join with women in ministry was planted with one question, but it has grown into a huge, thriving love for you over the past few years. It’s my heart’s desire that this Speaker Girl Community makes you feel understood and not alone.
