I probably need to start making note of how I find these things, if it is due to another blogger or someone on Twitter. If you think I found it through you, then thank you for sharing it so I could pass it along!
you're a pretty good speaker for a woman by Kathy Escobar
"a weird thing happened to me a few weeks ago. i was at the twins’ basketball game on a snowy december night, sitting by myself, when a vivid memory swooped in out of the blue from 7 years before. it was when i was still on big-church-staff and we hosted a special winter event where several of us shared dreams for our different ministries to gain financial support for the church. right afterward, an elder came up to me and said “wow, you’re a pretty good speaker for a woman.”
