You what?

Angie here: A few weeks ago I gave a talk based on the book, Gems of Wisdom: For a Treasure-filled Life. Several people asked me to put it on Youtube. You want me to what? Wow, the world has changed so much in such a short time.

So I did. It's funny because I am not so savvy yet with Youtube. I felt a little lost in the jargon. But with the awesome help of Tim Danyo of Imagination Media, who actually filmed it and loaded it, all I had to do was share it. I know there are a few more tweaks that I'll learn as I go, but here it is... the Gems of Wisdom short speech (although it's in 2 parts). If you enjoyed the talk, would you pass it on to someone you think needs to hear it?

Gems of Wisdom is about discovering the gems of wisdom we gain from difficult times and how to help others with that knowledge. And yes, there are pirates :-) They embody the negative attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors but they're based on real historic pirates! So come meet Cookie Smythe and Captain Charles Vane in this talk...

I'm accepting speaking requests for retreats, keynote, special events, conferences, and churches. If your church would like to have me come and speak, please contact me at angela (at) mygemofwisdom (dot) com so we can find a date. 
Thank you for spending so much time with me today.
May the Lord fill your treasure chest so that it overflows onto others.


  1. You have a gentle, caring, beautiful voice Angela! I especially liked part 2. Wonderful!

    Don't you wish you could somehow go back and give yourself a hug when you were a young girl living with your mom and tell yourself that everything would turn out okay? You may not be able to do that for yourself, but maybe your video and talks will do that for someone else.

    God Bless!

    I can't wait to read your book.

  2. What a joy your comment gave me, Eva! Thank you. I think God does some amazing things through the words of others, like yours today. I felt hugged!

    I also appreciated that you understood how much it means to help other moms and daughters. I hope someone else will be helped. I hope it with all my being.


  3. Angie, I believe you are definitely touching hearts and lives. God will make sure you are where you need to be at the right times.

    Love the cover!

  4. Thank you, jennifer. I believe you are right, God does have a plan.
