Letting the Cat out of the Bag

You might not know about it, but I’m really excited about something I’m doing…and I could use your help.

You see, I had a really rough time during my teenage years. I kept a journal back then, because I had to have some way to get some relief. The thing is – I still have that journal. It’s quite a reminder of how tough life was for me growing up!

And that brings me to what I’m excited about…

I am now speaking to high schools, church youth groups and college groups on a topic called, “You Are the Difference”. I’m doing this because I wish someone had come to my school or church to help me see that I was more significant than I felt at the time. I wish someone would have helped me to see myself differently, to believe in myself more. That would have made a huge difference in my life as a teenager.

That’s what I want to bring to students today, and to adults as well. I’m just starting but I’ve done a few speaking events already. I call it a “Keynote Concert” because I bring music into my speaking, and I also get the group interacting. Here’s a couple of responses to my speaking and music so far:

“This event was just what these teenagers needed. The event was well prepared with a creative blend of participatory singing, self reflection, and a powerful testimony by Steve that struck the hearts of these suburban teenagers. I would recommend Steve’s work to any group of teenagers who are looking for wholesome fun, to heighten their self value, and to believe in themselves that they can be the positive change in the world that leaves a lasting footprint.”

– Ian Peele, Teen Ministry Leader

“It’s not going to be your average event. The real gritty look at life and the vulnerability that Steve portrays is really refreshing that you need to go see, man. This guy knows exactly what you’re going through and that you’re not alone in that. This is a gem.”

– Eason Bragg, Chicago teen

As I said, I’m very excited about what I’m doing, but I need some help as I am doing my best to make a difference for others.

Here’s what I’m looking for…

* Assistance in contacting schools to get booked

* Help spreading the word on social media
* Technical assistance at live events

If you have another talent that you feel would help, you can let me know about that as well.

Simply reply to this email and let me know how you’d like to help, and we can set up a time to talk.

Thanks so much, and keep being the difference!
