Ordinary Stories, Extraordinary Impact Pt2
Erin Garcia invited Kristi Bridges to speak at the monthly Shift88 meeting, but because of COVID we decided to go live on Facebook instead.

If you'd like a free worksheet to help you develop your own stories, "like" Shift88 on Facebook, or send Kristi a message at info@1MomentWiser.com. Maybe you're ready to write your own devotional book, or you'd like a copy of Kristi's books. Either way, visit 1MomentWiser.com today! #littleredmg #shift88 #womenspeakers #truestories #Christianpodcasts

Ordinary Stories, Extraordinary Impact Pt1
Therapist, Splankna practitioner and visionary Erin Garcia invited Kristi Bridges to be the March speaker for Shift88. Thanks to the #COVIDquarantine, we did a live broadcast on Facebook instead of a local breakfast meeting. This means you get to hear it! The thing about live broadcasts is that sometimes #trolls appear. Ironically, the trolls illustrated Kristi's points perfectly, and we all had a good time. In part 1, Erin shares an acronym to help us get un-S.T.U.C.K., and Kristi tells the story of her great-grandpa's idea of a gift. #stories, #originalsongs, #womenspeakers, #empowerment

Lemonade, Key Lime Pie and One Red Shoe - Meet Shelley Malicote-Stutchman
When Shelley Malicote-Stutchman’s life turned sour, she started the Lemonade Ladies, a group of women who conquered depression and published a powerful book of poetry.  When Shelley reached “a certain age,” she refused the recliner and started the Medicare Jet-Setters, a group so fun I want to age faster and join them. In this episode, I was honored as this firecracker shared how you can create community with lemonade, key lime pie and a single shoe. #poet #depression #seniorshavingfun #story Click here to register for the March 14, 2020 #authorshowcase at Tokyo Garden in Bixby, OK.  What's your story?
