    The Travel Checklist To Pack Right!

    As a traveling speaker for over 25 years, I have literally lived out of a suitcase!  Personally, I love traveling but what I don’t love is packing and repacking!  Yes, it drives me crazy!  However, I’ve gotten better with it, and can now offer some assistance to those women who travel often and are entrepreneurs, having to bring your business product with you as well.  For starters, after you review my list below, tweak it and make one for yourself.  Then paste it on a wall in your room or store it on your mobile device to save time packing and to avoid forgetting something really important.  This checklist is also a great go-to for those who have the wonderful task of packing for you.  Ready jetsetter? Well, let’s get to the list so you can do yours!  PS – if you think I’ve overlooked anything, just send me an email.

    Having Altar Calls & Prayer Lines

    I don’t know about you but during my early years in ministry I was constantly bombarded with questions on what to do after I finished preaching. In other words, do I call for an altar call, lay hands, have a prayer line, or receive an offering? And if so, what is the proper procedure? Another thought was, when I’m done ministering the Word, do I simply pass the microphone back to the Pastor and sit down? Keep reading and allow me to discuss this further.

Where’s what I can share with you …
