Jan. 17th: “Armed with Umbrellas” by Becky Ransome


January 17th we will have our spring kickoff event!  Grab your umbrella, invite your friends and join us for a lively, practical, and action minded presentation on how to proceed into 2014 with confidence, direction, and a renewed sense of humor!

How can an umbrella make a difference in your life and in the lives of others?

It began with a testimony….a young woman volunteering at a home for women with aids in Africa was OVERWHELMED by the needs she saw.  There was so much to do, so much need everywhere, where was she to begin?  A simple invitation to invite a few people under her umbrella during a rainy morning is the inspiration for “Armed with Umbrellas”.

Becky Ransome is currently a resident of Batesville.  She was born in Stratford Wisconsin, and raised with her parents, 4 sisters and 1 brother on a family dairy farm.  She is married with two grown children, a son in law and one grandson.  She has lived 9 of the past 15 years in Japan.  From this multicultural adventure has come many insightful, practical and humorous experiences that she has woven into a powerful presentation sure to encourage, enhance and energize your daily living.  Becky is an animated and passionate speaker whose love for the Lord, her family and others strongly motivates her to purposely seek to empower others.  Along with speaking internationally to a few select religious organizations, she has been privileged to present “Armed with Umbrellas” in several different formats and audiences for example:  to a Big Brothers and Sisters Chapter, a Nurses Appreciation Breakfast, a Chamber of Commerce event, United Way Kick-OFF event, and others.  Becky is also a Licensed Massage Therapist, and doTerra Independent Product Consultant.  In her “spare” time sharing adventures with her husband, playing “chase-the-toy” with their two dogs, and an occasional Sudoku challenge fill up her days!

Don’t forget to bring an umbrella with you!!
