The #1 question is….

“Is it SCARY getting up in front of people???”

When I tell people Gordon and I are inspirational speakers, that is the very first question people ask.  It isn’t.  In fact, it is actually a lot of fun.

Perhaps it isn’t scary because we talk about a subject we know so well… us!   My speaking career began answering questions at the end of Gordon’s speech.  That was fun, meaningful, interactive, AND I didn’t have to prepare anything!

After every speech we have given, Gordon and I talk about what a great experience it was and how nice the people were.  Hearing our story of hope, faith, marriage, and family seems to bring out the best in people.  Perhaps getting up in front of people isn’t scary because the audience embraces our story and therefore embraces us.  We all share a moment of vulnerability and for that moment, we all feel like family.  And that isn’t scary at all.
