    Beautiful writing, Christina. Thank you for this heart-lifting testimony of God’s faithfulness in overcoming your doubts and questions about your calling and revealing His plan for you and the special gifts He has given you. It is a message that speaks to our spirits.

    You are an encouragement and blessing to me and many others. May God continue to use you in mighty ways to build His Kingdom. May He bless the work of your hands, the words you write, and the message of your life.

    “Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself [herself] be watered.” Proverbs 11:25 (ESV)

    Christina, I met you the first year you came to Speak Up. I think we were in the same writer critique group. Your testimony was and is powerful! God’s glory and story shine through you.
    This is a great word you’ve shared about imposter syndrome. Three great steps for us to hold on to and use when the negative thoughts come. Thank you!
    See ya soon!

Your testimony is powerful and I’m so blessed to see the way God is expanding your ministry through written and spoken words.

      Thank you for your encouragement, Carol. I have learned so much at Speak Up. I love that I am constantly being challenged to grow and stretch myself. One of the best things about it is that I can now use the tools and nuggets of wisdom I have picked up to encourage other writers and speakers along the way. You, Gene, and the Speak Up faculty are in my prayers for strength and safe travels. See you soon.
