Tomorrow to celebrate International Women’s Day, my lovely Canadian friend and biz peer Doreen Penner is hosting a virtual event on Facebook, Hope Ignited: Empowering Women to Rise Up! I am so excited and honored to be among the lineup of speakers for this event!
It is a full day of inspiration and encouragement. On pre-recorded Zoom videos, the six speakers are sharing their stories, wisdom, experience, and action steps.
It begins tomorrow, Monday, March 8, and lasts until Friday, March 12, to give you time to view the videos and join us. The event page is here.
Bring your hot coffee or your fave cold drink, a journal and a pen to take notes, and mingle with the speakers on the event page here. Leave your comments and feel free to ask Doreen and the speakers any questions.
I’d love to connect with you there and I pray this event uplifts you. Please share and invite a family member or friend who needs HOPE, inspiration, and encouragement! Each speaker will have a different topic. It’s going to be fun!
Do you have a “one word” yet for 2021? I started doing this a few years ago, to set a “theme” and a focus for the whole year, instead of making New Year’s resolutions (which were usually broken before January was over!).
It seems the “one word” comes as I’m just going about my day, doing routine things or praying. I ask God for the word that HE desires for me. I’m always tested on the word by God!
At the end of December 2019, I received the word, “hope,” for 2020. At the time I didn’t understand why God gave me that specific word. Now I get it, looking back over the crazy, chaotic, fearful year of 2020. Every day, I needed to have hope in Jesus!
As I’ve been praying the last few days to prepare for 2021, I’ve received an impression or what I call “a nudge from God” of the word “steward.” It is a serious word.
Today is my birthday. The number doesn’t matter. I’m just thankful to God, because each year and each day are a gift and a blessing from Him.
I know some “old people” who seem very young in mind, heart, and body. And I know other young and middle-aged people who seem much older than they are, old as Methuselah! (Genesis 5:21-27) I don’t want to wind up like those people who are old, decrepit, and sitting or laying around all day, doing nothing but worrying and talking about their ailments in every conversation!
