My First Speaking Gig (!) | Bethany Suckrow

My First Speaking Gig (!)

Yes, you read that right. I’ve been asked to speak at a friend’s cafe in Norwalk, Ohio this Saturday, September 28. Our friends from college, Dave and Tiffany Lamb, invited my husband and his band and me to share our talents with their community and we’re so thrilled and honored to make it happen. The show has been in the works for a few months, but the details just fell into place. Matt and my younger brother Adam will be playing music, and afterward I’ll give a talk about my (work in progress) book.

It feels kinda crazy because my book is still in submitting proposals-to-publishers stage, but I think it’s a good opportunity to get my feet wet in this business of sharing my story. Specifically, I’ll be talking about Healing and the Church, about how evangelical culture talks about terminal illness, grief, prayer and healing. I’m nervous and excited and all points in between, but I know it will be good. If you’re in the area that weekend, you are welcome to join us!

W H E N : Saturday, September 28 at 6:30 p.m.

W H E R E : Haven Acoustic Cafe (67 E. Main St. Norwalk, Ohio 44857)

    Hi Bethany, I’m long-time friends of Dave and Tiff. (Dave a little longer, I watched him grow up.) I have been a member of the church where you will be playing for quite a while. I will be working Saturday night and won’t be able to hear you, but thank you very much for your commitment and your talents that you share. God’s grace and love be with you.

    Good luck! I’m sure you’ll be great. Public speaking isn’t that terrifying actually – take it from someone like me who is really, really shy, but has been lecturing for years. Adrenaline just kicks in. I find it less confronting than say, going to a party and having to mingle :) Anyway, I hope you enjoy it and that you get a good crowd in the audience.
