“Coffee, tea, room temp sparkling and still water, diet ginger ale, crudité, hummus and sliced fruit” –I Can’t Possibly Eat or Drink This Much

bebraveI’m available to come and teach at an event for your church or ministry. I’ve been teaching a lot lately on shame, numbing, and hope and bravery—the truth of these go together very well and are freeing. I know a lot about youth ministry and I’m particularly opinionated about church family-based youth ministry. And I make this promise to you, my speaker rider is nothing like this:

Plans for UCLA visit give rare glimpse into Hillary Clinton’s paid speaking career.

Wow. I request a love honorarium, travel expenses and times over food with whomever. And I’m not picky about the temperature of water at the speaking podium.

About Be Brave

Brenda Seefeldt began life in youth ministry in 1981. That is before the internet, YouTube, texting and even before PowerPoint. (But it was after flannel boards.) Brenda has written and shared much of what she has learned through the resource of Wild Frontier and in many youth ministry publications as she continues on in youth ministry. Brenda is a brave one. She stutters yet is a national speaker. She loves teaching so much she’s also been a substitute teacher for over 20 years. She’s brave enough to enter any classroom at a middle school. She also simply loves teaching groups, whether they are teens or adults. Due to the many years of youth ministry, Brenda has “coached” many grown teens in dating. She finds herself very opinionated on that with lots to share. Brenda loves her God-given family–four sons and 4 grandchildren. They are God-given, not birthed. That alone is a brave story, one she tells here and there as the story really belongs to her sons.
