What to Expect
Expect to see good interaction with your audience and a wide range of responses from light bulb moments to some perplexity. This teaching is counter-intuitive and is much more than mere entertainment or a reminder of the obvious.
Your audience will be invited to adopt Matthew 7:5 as a regular Christian practice - to "first get neutral" before responding to any sensitive issue with others.
The practicality of this teaching is unsurpassed for anyone who wants to change how others respond to them as a spouse, parent or leader. This is the real deal about important life situations. Audiences see how our normal responses aggravate things...UNTIL we remove the plank. Then we see Jesus' counter-intuitive way to get issues resolved by seeking peace first, results second.
My speaking topic is peace and leadership. My topic centers around a counter-intuitive scriptural verse - Matthew 7:5 - about removing the plank from your eye to see clearly what to do in difficult situations. Audiences find hope that difficult troubles with others can be resolved even in long-standing struggles.
I am a vice-president of marketing & sales who blacked out on the family room floor at age 34 due to stress. It was a wake-up call that led me to begin a 20 year spiritual journey.
Along the way, I wrote 4 books about my journey. I share my lessons learned with others seeking to "the peace that surpasses all understanding" found in Jesus Christ. My experiences involve marriage, divorce, workplace leadership and family of origin issues.
I live in southern Ontario, Canada.
