St Simons Island, here we come!

Standard

I’m pretty excited (and only a little terrified) to do my first storytelling presentation called “The Christian’s Secret to a Messy Life” at the Winning Women Conference in St. Simon Island this weekend!  (ok, I’m only kidding about the “terrified” part.  I’m actually really pumped!)

I used to do more speaking a couple years ago, but took a break while my daughter finished high school.  I started a job teaching drama, that kept me closer to home and continued doing that her freshman year at UCF.  But God called me back…but this time I really wanted to do something more up my alley:  storytelling!  I love the rise and fall of a good story.  I love how a story can make you laugh one moment and cry the next.  It’s the actress in me.  But it’s also because Jesus used stories to get a point across.  It’s beautiful in it’s simplicity.  Simply tell the story.  God will do the rest.

So on this night before I leave, I’m leaving this post, wondering what new friends I will meet this weekend.  And I’m hoping they will join me here on this blog!

Give me a few weeks, and hopefully I’ll be changing this blog into a “vlog”–video blog.  I’ve got a total knee replacement coming up on 10/26, so please give me a little grace if it doesn’t happen before then.  🙂

Seriously, I can’t wait to see where God leads us next.  Join me!

About lauriebarkercopeland

I'm just like you, but totally unique. We have things in common, but we are all God's one-of-a-kind creatures. I enjoy finding The Funny in life when it gets messy. And we all know how life can get messy, right? Some of the things I love: God, family, friends, storytelling, community, nature, the arts, beauty, travel, fun and games, learning, the study of the personalities, teenagers, acting, writing and missions. More specifically: the mountains, the beach, breathing clean air, traveling to new places, experiences, deep conversations, appreciating the minute in nature, lunching with girlfriends, practicing sensing, predicting trends, taking a few risks along the way. I hate routine, so starting (and keeping up) this vlog is risky for me...but I love community (and a few risks), so I'm going for it! I hope you join me and we can have some Serious Fun together!
