Today I had the privilege of speaking at two local elementary schools in front of about 450 children combined. What a joy to see all their smiling faces. I shared my story of how a teacher helped me find my path in life even though I didn’t believe in myself at the time.
I was a child who was convince I would never be up front, never stand out, never be a leader. And then, like being thrown into a lake to be forced to swim or die, I too found that I was more capable than I believed. I encourage each child to experiment with every opportunity that comes their way. To try music, a foreign language, sports, different foods, extra curricular activities that would stretch them, for the one purpose of choosing NEVER to limit their potential in hopes of finding their greatest joy!
I’d love to come to your churches’ children’s classes and share my story. Frankly, you won’t believe it either!
