The Launch of Lay Speaking Chick

A few years ago, I was at a conference where our church brought in a consultant.  Church growth is a huge topic in the Methodist church and the consultant was leading a workshop on the topic.  When folks were asked to introduce themselves, I responded by saying "I'm no one important, I'm just a lay speaking chick." 

The honest truth, that's what I am!  No letters follow my name, no fancy title to dazzle and impress.  All I have to offer is a passion for God, family and the world at large.  The things that I will talk about, they are my opinion only, it's a look at my view from the pew. 

The view from the pew is not just about church or religion, it's about life.  Are we taking the lessons learned and using them every day to the best of our ability?  Or, are we driving off a cliff unaware?  Are we moving forward in life with zest or wallowing in inertia, or worse, sliding backwards?  Can one person really make a difference? 

I have debated long and hard about starting a blog.  I prayed about it, discussed it with my husband, talked with friends.  I may not change the world, but if I only help one person out there feel like they are not alone, then it's worth the challenge!  I pray that somehow, some way I can be a blessing to you!
