Today, Amie speaks to us about her passion for women communicators.
Tell us a bit about how you grew up and your childhood: I grew up in Louisiana, running around barefoot with wild tangled hair from riding one four wheelers down the lanes too fast. We had a simple childhood and spent most of the time outside. Southern Baptist roots kept us in Sunday school and vacation Bible school but not much else during the school year. I had a great childhood full of travel softball, lots of great food, and a big loud opinionated family.
Inspiring biblical passage of the moment: “I cannot think of anyone more unworthy to this cause than I, the least of the least of the saints. But here I am, a grace-made man, privileged to be an echo of His voice and a preacher to all the nations of the riches of the Anointed One, riches that no one ever imagined.” Ephesians 3:8 The Voice (VOICE)
Spiritual growth focus at the moment: Writing the revelation God has given me on women communicators.
Profession: Founder of Let’s Echo. Speaking Coach for women who desire to communicate the Gospel with confidence.
If you wrote a memoir, what would the title be? Forge Ahead: The importance of moving forward when you want sit down and throw a pity party.
When did you first encounter God and how did you encounter Him? I was 8 when I first responded to an altar call. I was 21 when I first truly gave my life to Jesus at a retreat in the back woods of Louisiana. I grew up in church but never knew His Presence. When I went to a spirit-filled church, I actually felt His nearness and heard Him speak to my heart.
