“You have had a significant influence on how I view brokenness, forgiveness, and the role God plays through all of that through a very difficult time in my life. Since that year at CRC, I have taken significant steps to getting bitterness out of my heart… You have had a significant impact on my life. I really do not think I would be the woman I am today if it were not for the lessons you taught me. You are a strong instrument of God and his word.” –Sara, former camp counselor and now inner-city missionary
“I want to thank you again for coming out last night and sharing your heart and story. Not only did you talk about being brave but you modeled bravery in such a way that those present can never look at our journeys the same. I also want to express a personal thought about last night. Most of the stories people share are safe because they know how the story ended. Just as you promised your story is current, fresh and raw trusting Jesus for an end.” –Margaret, Centreville Baptist Church
Brenda and John are available to come to your church or event. Brenda teaches with stories and truth on vulnerability, broken-heartedness, shame, perfectionism, foreboding joy, numbing behaviors, and forgiving others (who wants to talk about that really?). John mixes in songs he’s written that share the same truths but his music adds that healing touch the soul needs after such personal pains are brought into the light. What you see showcased in the Note to Self videos is a window into their combined teaching style.
All is based accurately on the Scriptures and the Bible is used to bring the light to these hidden behaviors we justify to cope through the pains of life.
John is also available to lead in worship with your worship team. You can hear more of his music on this webpage.
You can follow the continuing story of Brenda and John’s broken-hearted life through Brenda’s blog Be Brave. What is shared on the blog is the core of what she shares in person.
