Stumbling Blocks to Stepping Stones

Incorporating "stories" of famous past "failures" from scripture, including Moses, David, Rahab, Mary Magdalene, etc. and then modern “failures” such as  Eleanor Roosevelt, Lucille Ball, and Michael Jordan scriptural and inspirational presentation is three-fold: 1) to examine and face "stumbling blocks in our own lives 2) to determine ways and find tools to get past these blocks
3) to find through God’s Word how to apply it to both our personal and professional lives. Debra reveals her own testimony of being a troubled teen who became Teacher of the Year by submitting to Christ, and leaves the audience with the determination to be positive in applying scripture to the areas over which they have control, and to actually learn from past mistakes and even teach others to do the same! What the enemy meant for harm, God intends for GOOD! Dr. Peppers believes that God will use the stumbling blocks and even tragedies of our past to make us stronger, more faithful and better witnesses to help those going through similar problems.

 

 

Get Out of The Boat

This hard-hitting presentation is a "wake-up call" for each of us to receive Christ’s command to “Launch out into the Deep.” Just as Christ called his disciples to do the same when they were not catching any fish, we too cannot be successful if we choose to stay in our comfortable little “boats”. Dr. Peppers scripturally relates how she learned to make daily attitude adjustments, set God’s priorities and goals above her own, and find others who would assist her in doing so. Learning how our physiological and intellectual responses are often dictated by our emotions, we learn to realize the enormous amount of time and energy we spend on the petty things that don't really matter. Christ confidence is emphasized (not self-confidence) and Debra leaves the audience with scriptures they can use to step into the calling on their own lives. She also gives practical tools for not internalizing situations, how to be proactive instead of reactive and strategies for personal fulfillment in our relationships and the call on our life. Where God guides, He provides!

 

 

Take Off the Mask

In both our professional and personal lives, we waste so much time and energy trying to "fit the  mold" and "keep up with the Joneses". Once we realize that our personality types, our particular God-given strengths and our weaknesses are all supposed to be different, we can learn to move on and allow others to see the “real us”. Incorporating a brief overview of different men and women from scripture who learned to get real and take off their proverbial masks, Debra demonstrates the importance of interpersonal communication skills and the necessity for us to be humble, yielded vessels Christ can use. The most difficult thing for some of us to do is to reveal who we really are in our vulnerability and honesty. Debra shares this part of herself and encourages others to do so in their own families, church settings and even in their professions. In a time when we supposedly celebrate diversity and individuality, why do we keep trying to wear masks to impress others – or to hide from them? Jesus revealed himself for us – can we do any less?
