Elizabeth is a popular Christian speaker, author, blogger & story coach. She is winsomely transparent, accidentally funny, and ridiculously creative. She serves on several non-profit boards, teaches Bible study, is a sought-after speaker, and a regular columnist for Just between Us – a magazine to encourage and equip women for a life of faith (Jill Briscoe is the Executive Editor). She has been married to her husband, Mike, for 30 adventure-filled years and, in a house full of men, has always practiced a double door policy – the front door is always open and so is the fridge! Native southerners, she and her family now reside in Brookfield, WI.
Elizabeth will be teaching one breakout session and taking 15-minute appointments.
Telling Your Hard Story
Research shows that, unlike watching television or even listening to music, stories make the brain come alive. When well crafted, these stories not only make the brain come alive, but also the heart; offering help and inspiring hope. Everyone has a story but some are as hard to listen to as they are to tell. Elizabeth has worked with survivors of human trafficking, those struggling with chronic illness, and people just like you who have a desire to tell their hard stories in a way that connects with the audience. In this personal and practical seminar you will learn to do that in a way that is honoring to the story, careful with the content and relatable for the listening or reading audience. You will feel safe, heard, empowered, and equipped to be used by God in ways you never thought possible.
