In October of 2015, I had the privilege of speaking at a Women's Retreat. Today, I came across my talk while going through archived blogs, and felt the need to share it again.
That day, I spoke about finding your identity in Christ. It's a subject close to my heart because of my own struggles with identity. I also feel that a crisis of identity has led many other women, like me, down paths of self-destruction, depression, and the loss of any sense of self-worth or value. While this talk was a testimony of sorts, it was also a plea for women to come to a place of being fulfilled, satisfied, and confident in the Lord's unique plan and purpose for each one of us.
In order to prepare for my talk, I worked for a month every night from 9 p.m. to, at times, 1:30 in the morning. I don't think I have ever poured myself into something more. This talk was woven together from life experience, God's faithfulness, scripture, and the Holy Spirit. I am not a professional speaker and this was my first time giving a talk at an event like this. With that said, I hope that you can "hear" past my own shortcomings in order to gain some perspective on where you find and place your identity.
