Community Highlights - Your Empowered Spirit with Terri Ann Heiman EP: 074

podcast Feb 16, 2022

Today on The Inside Story Podcast, I’m featuring another LIGHTbeamer as part of our Community Highlights -- a series focusing on members of our Community who are working on sharing their story to shine a light for others.

Terri Ann Heiman landed in the LIGHTbeamers world more than a year ago, and since that time, I’ve seen her embrace storytelling as a way to reach the audience she serves: those who want to dig deep into their soul, find their spirit, and transform their life.

Join me and Terri, as she and I talk about:

  • Her backstory and what happened as a result of her not paying attention to what was going on around her

Accelerator Spotlight: Becky Burroughs

I always like to say doing story work is like peeling an onion. 

As you go, you remove each layer, revealing more stories you have to tell. 

This is certainly the case with Becky Burroughs. When I first met Becky, she didn't think she had a story to tell. Like so many of the women I meet, she thought her story was worthless -- not important to tell. But as we began our work together, Becky began peeling back the layers of her onion. 

Now, Becky is one of the 14 authors who've come together to write their story in our community collaborative book, Elevate Your Voice.

And before the book has even officially published, Becky has already begun working with a publisher to write and publish her first solo book this year. 

Becky is on the move! Her work as a leadership coach for women in ministry has seemingly been set ablaze with passion as a result of Becky doing her own story work! 

Nowadays, you can find her live-streaming, creating Instagram reels,...

Join me in today’s episode of The Inside Story Podcast as I share with you:

Storytelling involves trusting the process and knowing that one of these days, you will share your story in a way that comes naturally and with so much depth. And when that...

If you’re ready to step into your best self and live your best life this 2022, then this episode is for YOU.

  •    The process of Being, Doing, and Becoming
