I’m a people lover. You are now in the top three on my list of loves. The first, of course, is my Lord – followed by Family – and then by friends.
I freely admit that my definition of Family is expansive, and includes informal ‘adoption’ as well as genetics – and that my ‘friends’ include my colleagues, mentors, students, and readers.
I love to teach, and to connect. I love to laugh. I love to learn, and to share this grand adventure – and I have a couple of questions for you:
Do you wish you knew someone who shared your faith, and who has walked a mile in your shoes – or at least alongside someone on the same path – celebrating each small successful step to recovery from major depression/anxiety; communication difficulty after a stroke or brain injury – or other learning or life-skill challenge?
Have you wished someone, with experience and understanding, could share ideas, hope, and encouragement with you? If so – we need to make contact.
Here are 5 ways we can accomplish that:
- Subscribe to my Blog. I enjoy writing weekly on these topics, and more.
- Join my creative effort: I will be writing my book – with a little help from my ‘friends’ – as a series of free blog posts. I will use reader questions and feedback to guide revisions before releasing it as an e-book or print text.
- Buy my books or curriculum: You’ll have to wait awhile for the release of my first title. The book will bridge the gaps between scholarly research into neuroscience – spirituality – and self-help with coping and recovery skills for those suffering major depression and anxiety and/or for those who care for them.
My book will not offer psycho-therapy – but it will be educational. Of course it won’t take the place of medical treatment or professional services.
It will be a valued supplement to those treatments and take you behind the scenes to offer first-hand experience of multiple strategies for self-help and comfort. You have more power than you may know – and the potential to make your life work better – even in painful times. Other titles are planned for the future.
4. Book me as a speaker: Although my availability is tightly limited right now – I do love teaching, connecting and collaborating with others. I have years of experience speaking in classrooms and in presentations to professional and volunteer groups.
I’ve spoken at events hosted by the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association, California Speech-Language and Hearing Association, educational conferences, and in smaller groups through School, Hospital and Church connections, etc.
My speaking calendar is very limited for now – because I am focused on writing, but I would enjoy hearing from you about your needs.
5. Send me an e-mail message. I will acknowledge and attempt to respond to each one – although some responses may be included in my blog.
If you have other ideas than these, please feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
