Guarding Your Calling
In this lesson Lisa Allen helps us will identify, renew and gain tools to guard the calling God has placed in our hearts. Her coaching insights will help answer the questions: What is my calling? Who is calling me? To whom or what am I called?
Called, Confident and on Mission to Clarify My Why
When it comes to writing, it’s easy to know what to do and how to do it if you’ve clearly defined your WHY. But if you haven’t, writing can often feel like a challenge rather than a joy. Your WHY lives inside of you and bubbles up as passion that fuels your calling. What is your WHY? How can you develop a mission statement that will bring clarity and confidence to your calling? This COMPEL lesson identifies important concepts to consider as you begin to develop your own mission statement and discover your calling.
The way we stand firm depends on the shoes we wear, the position we take and the ability to dig into the ground beneath us. This lesson by Lisa Allen will highlight several Bible passages that implore us to stand firm while we unpack ways to dig our heels deep in the midst of any circumstance we face as a writer, spouse, parent, friend or neighbor.
Help I Feel Invisible
What do you do when you feel like you’re doing all you can to grow in your ministry, yet feel invisible, insignificant and irrelevant? This lesson by Lisa Allen will help you see your calling from God’s perspective. This view will help move you from invisible to seen, insignificant to purposeful, and irrelevant to meaningful. You can’t control things that happen, but you can change your response.
Present Over Perfect
In this lesson from a previous She Speaks conference, Shauna Niequist shares how she struggled with feeling exhausted and isolated, tired of being tired, and burned out on being busy. It was a time when she longed for connection, meaning and depth, but seemed to always be settling for busy. Through Shauna’s faith walk, she has learned how to live marked by grace, love, rest and play, and it changed everything in her life. Shauna offers a compelling vision for a new way to live: soaked in grace, rest, silence, simplicity, prayer and connection with the people that matter most to us.
Strengthening Your Willpower
You have the best intentions to write, but by the time that slot on your schedule arrives, you lack the motivation to start. Have you ever wished you had more willpower to press through the resistance? If so, then this lesson is for you. In it, Glynnis Whitwer shares insight on willpower: Where it goes and how you can protect this finite resource.
Whether it’s rush-hour traffic, the doctor’s office or the DMV, we are constantly faced with times of waiting. Even in our writing, we wait for words to come, articles to be published and book proposals to be accepted. This lesson will help us wait well as we are joined by special guest and Proverbs 31 speaker and writer, Wendy Pope. We will break apart waiting and our responses to it in order to establish some practical ways to wait well, while seeking God’s purpose as we do.
Making Time to Write in the Middle of Real Life
It’s one thing to dream of writing, another thing to find the time and space to sit down and do it. Especially while juggling too many at-home and at-work responsibilities. Who has time to write when the bills need to be paid and dinner made? Michele knows firsthand the daily struggle to find space for her love of writing in between parenting six children, running a thriving business, and navigating personal limits. In this lesson, she will give you an abundance of practical tips for figuring out capacity, calendar, daily routines and rest so you can turn your love of writing into a reality.
