Speaking Topics . . .
Humor in Health
Packed with hilarious stories of my grandfather, Pa, this message illustrates the great value that humor and good cheer have in relation to our mental and physical health. Medical science has proven that laughter can help lower blood sugar, create the antibodies that fight infection, and reduce pain. As it turns out, the old Proverb 'A merry heart doeth good like a medicine' is truer than we ever knew!
The Bible makes it clear that the only way to be saved is through our faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus as an atonement for our sins. Though we live in a society that hears the gospel, many people have a distorted view of the world's greatest news. This presentation begins with an engaging story that parallels the message then gently leads the hearer into the scriptures that speak the truth about God's great love and salvation through Christ.
Making Right Decisions
Perfect for junior and senior high students, this presentation focuses on the impact that daily decisions have on our lives. Engaging stories are used to demonstrate the outcome of both good and bad decisions. Rather than be told what to do, students are encouraged to focus on their strengths and gifts and let their imaginations run with the great possibilities they can accomplish when they make positive decisions in their lives.
Tis The Season!
What is it about Christmas? There is a happiness in the air that is not found at any other time. People give and care and love. Some people sing who don't normally sing and some sing who shouldn't. It's as if society has moved to a higher place. The Bible has a lot to say about a higher place of existence and the "'Tis the Season" mmessage discusses the possibility of discovering that place on an every day basis.
Volunteers work tirelessly without complaint and are seldom recognized, yet there comes a time to say a huge "Thank You" for all they do. Matt shares a humorous story of one such volunteer who made a huge impact on a life to emphasize the value of service and then he segues into a heartfelt appreciation on behalf of the staff to the volunteers at hand.
Living Your Dream
Many people live with a heartfelt desire to doing something great with their life but are limited by their own beliefs. Often these deep desires were placed into the heart of the dreamer by God himself. A prayer placed in the heart by God will always be answered. We must simply exercise our faith to step out and receive it.
The Five Essential Elements - A Simplified Road to Success
Everyone desires success though we may define it in different ways. True success eludes many because the path to success is riddled with many complications. The Five Essential Elements simplifies this path by capturing the most important ideas as expressed by the great minds of leadership and delivers them in a step by step process.
From the time we are children we are taught that our rewards are directly related to our performance. Is it any wonder that after we have worked and served and failed to be perfect yet again that we would feel unloved by family friends and even God? "Unconditional" tells the touching true story of a love that pierced through unforgivable acts and relates that to our God whose love exceeds our greatest imagination.
