Speaking of...

Hey blog readers!

I haven’t been writing very much this summer, partly because I am gearing up for some speaking events!  I know I haven’t met many of you, so if you’re interested in attending one of the events below, I really would love to meet you face to face.

Friday, October 3rd I will be hosting a break-out session at the MEMO/ITEM conference in St. Cloud for media specialists.  I will be speaking from 11:30-12:15.  My session is going to focus on my writing/editing journey and why I chose to self-publish. 

Sunday, October 12th, I will be speaking at Hope Covenant Church in St. Cloud, MN.  Church starts at 10AM.  They are doing a series on Missional Living.  I’m going to be sharing my story, but I’m also going to dive into the mission I’ve felt called to as a result of writing Walking with Tension.  This event is free and open to everyone.  I will have books for sale that I’d be happy to sign.

Saturday, October 18th, I will be at The Blessing House in Victoria, MN.  I’m going to share my story of learning to walk with the tension of trusting a God who heals, yet has chosen not to heal me.  I will also be talking about my book.  It looks like they have many great classes; the cost is $25.

Finally, I will be speaking at the undergraduate chapel service at the University of Northwestern on Wednesday, November 19th as part of their Disability Awareness Week.

If you have an event that you would like me to speak at, I’d love to connect with you!  You can check out some of my speaking topics on my speaking page, or e-mail me at and we can talk about crafting a talk that works for you!

You can listen to one of the first talks I gave about walking with God and with CP in 2010 at Church of the Open Door along with Steve Wiens on YouTube.

And, if you haven’t yet checked out Walking With Tension, it is available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle editions.
