Ladybug Women’s Ministries
When I first heard Carol speak at a Women of Faith event, I was mesmerized. Even though there were thousands of women in the arena, I felt as though she were just having a conversation with me. I realized immediately that this was a rare gift, and I wanted to know more. When I discovered that she actually trained women to do exactly what she did so well, I knew I had to sign up! That was in 2008, and I count that as the year my real speaking ministry began. Did I speak before? Yes. Did I bless and minister to ladies before? Yes. But with the training of the Speak Up with Confidence team, I learned to take my ministry to an entirely new level! I learned how effective outlining can make the difference in a message, giving my audience something to take home and remember long after the event.
When I returned in 2010 to add the advanced training to my original seminar refresher, I discovered even more amazing tools. Learning how to integrate drama and writing into my speaking has added the value that my ministry needed. Just two short years later, I have been successful in founding my own non-profit organization and becoming a published writer. It is without a doubt that I know that the Speak Up training has played a key role in these accomplishments.
