I am often asked for my bio, that list of credentials that will establish my credibility for your audience.  It's a long list and reads more like a resume than an introduction for an audience.  I would hate to bore them before we even get going, but I fully understand you want to give people a reason to sit up and listen. 

I've been a Biblical teacher for 30 years and I was a worship leader for 18 years. I have been an Event speaker for more than 20 years and  leading a Christian Band, Gracious Vine,  for 15 years, 

I've written several books,

I am a Recording Artist with 3 CDs,

started Gracious Vine Ministries in 2007 and  have been on the staff of

local, national and international

non-profit organizations. 

All of this while daily tending to my wonderful husband and raising 3 amazing children to adulthood.  It's been a tremendous journey with countless rewards and challenges.  

 I became a believer in Jesus Christ in 1974 at the age of 11.  Certainly, it was the faith of a child.  With all the pressures and pitfalls of youth,

there were serious blunders on my end; times of running away from God, dark activities,  troubles, and identity struggles.  

Eventually, I was struck with the desperation of my life and there was only one place to turn. 

I've never looked back, and never been more fulfilled!  Jesus truly satisfies those who seek Him.

Since then I have dedicated my life to serving the Lord in many forms. 

This is the fast track version, but certainly, if you still want more information than this, you know, all those fine details, let me know and I can get that laundry list to you.
