I was asked to speak at the Creating a Culture of Character Summit presented by The Hope Institute and Samford University. To say I was honored would be an understatement. I had one of those out of body experiences that you see on the Sci Fi Channels. I couldn't believe it. I was beyond excited. I was also stunned at the same time. I was stunned that someone wanted to hear "my" story, and wanted to hear "my" thoughts.
I received the email invitation that went out to all of the participants today. When I saw my name I dropped a tear. Seeing it in writing was definitely the moment it became real. A moment that I will remember forever. I've spoken at many churches, organizational meetings, banquets, programs, schools, and even a few educational conferences, but I have never been a "featured speaker" at an educational conference. I am humbled.
I can't wait to share with you guys the video of the conference. This will be the first of many.
