Contact & Booking
Thanks for stopping by! I try to be as responsive as I can be, but life isn’t always permitting and I like to put some real thought into my responses. Unless I’m traveling you’ll typically hear back from me within a week or so.
For professional inquiries about speaking please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or submit a form below.
I’m willing to speak on any subject with advanced noticed, but I have a lot of material and personal experience with Adversity, Choosing Joy, Gratitude, Hanging on Spiritually, Missions, & the Atonement of Jesus Christ (specifically how He can help us overcome all things if we will choose Him). He took the sting out of death, but He can also take the sting out of life if we will let Him.
My addresses are very similar to my writing, so if you want a sample, feel free to explore my blog.
I’m an advocate for mental health & for reaching out. I may not reply right away & I guarantee that I won’t always say what you need to hear, but if you ever need to vent, to get something off your chest, or you simply need someone to talk to, please email me.
No, I don’t know what you’re going through & I won’t pretend to. I won’t say that I understand because I don’t. Even if two people have the same exact diagnosis, it will still be vastly unique to each person. You cannot understand something unless you have lived it, and even then you can only offer support and empathy.
So that is what I’m offering you.
Support, empathy, a listening ear, & advice if that’s what you ask for. I can share what’s helped me, tell you how Christ lifts me up & offers me joy -how I survived when I was sure that I couldn’t.
Through the experiences I’ve had these past two years (and throughout my entire life), my eyes have been opened to all that is going on around me. We don’t always realize it, but everyone has problems. Everyone feels joy, experiences pain, and has moments where they feel alone. We know this – we’ve always known this, but we forget that every person you see, everyone driving a car down the freeway next to you, each person studying in the library, every human in the grocery store has a unique life that is just as complex and complicated as your own. Do you realize that? When you sit in the waiting room for the doctor’s office, everyone else in that room is sick, too.
I don’t know, I’ve been thinking about how much we each need a support system, a friend, and a listening ear. To be honest, it breaks my heart that not everyone has that –and I know that even those who do have one have had moments where they’ve felt they didn’t. People let you down, that’s a fact. We’re all imperfect, it’s a part of our mortal experience, and we often tend to focus more on ourselves than others. It’s tragic, but not everyone cares and as a result, we often feel like we’re left to face our problems alone.
This is a lie.
Regardless of your religion, sexual orientation, race, or position in life you deserve to be heard & I want you to know that & believe that with your whole heart.
Be your own advocate. It’s okay to take care of yourself, in fact, it’s necessary.
I hope that you can recognize that you are worthy of love and belonging. Can I tell you a sad secret? If you don’t believe you are worthy of that then you won’t believe others even when they genuinely show you that you are. It starts with you. Want to know how I know? Because I’ve been there.
Are you willing to let go of who you think you should be in order to be who you are?
Just reach out, I promise it’s worth it.
If you do you will feel so much joy & contentment. There are better days ahead, I know it.
So, in short, if you don’t feel like you have anyone in your corner send an email to a five foot five fireball who won’t stop until you find what you need.
You might be afraid to advocate for yourself, but I’m not. Mental health is just as important as physical health. Stop the stigma, take care of yourself, & send me an email if you need someone.
