My name is Alexis and I am interested in becoming a ladies day speaker. I am currently 28 years old. For the past eight years I have been teaching children’s and ladies bible classes, planning ladies days and other ladies fellowship events. I have spoken at two of our ladies days and will be speaking again this year. So I am a novice but attempting to stretch my boundaries and get more experience. I have self-published one ladies devotional “Strengthening a Sisterly Bonds” and am completely my second book. Which will be a weekly devotional book. Due to health issues I do not hold a job but instead am very involved in my congregation. I also paint old saws and things when I am able, including murals in our congregations classrooms. It is my hope to share with others my experiences and knowledge and be a worker for the Lord.
