I love that we can feel God's pleasure when we're living out our passions.
This past Saturday I had the opportunity to speak at a Christian women's empowerment conference about overcoming insecurity. When I get to share with an audience, I have the same sensation as Eric Liddell. He was made to run. More and more, I'm discovering that I was made to write, speak, and encourage.
Here's the conference's pamphlet. My picture is below the picture of fitness expert and former Mrs. America Lisa Christie. (Even typing that felt funny. Yes, I spent my Saturday brushing elbows with Mrs. America. She's very nice. She also has amazing triceps. Just saying.)
With three young children and a job as a college lecturer, I'm obviously not looking to launch myself into a large speaking circuit. Over the past year, though, I've shared at several local moms and women's events. Each time I've left energized. When we use our talents to honor God and bless others, we're fulfilling our purpose.
Eric Riddell knew this. We can know it, too.
