Called to Speak :: Chrystal Evans Hurst {Ep 33}

Our Declare community wants to know God and make Him known.

We make Him known in a variety of ways.

Through how we live our lives. Through typing out a message. Or through the spoken word.

What if you feel called to do the latter. . .to speak?

What steps should you take to pursue that calling?

Well, you’re in luck because the fabulous Chrystal Evans Hurst is sharing some tips and encouragement on how to begin speaking publicly.


You also get a couple bonus pep talks. One about trusting God to bring the right opportunities. And another about living out your story instead of coveting someone else’s end product.

Chrystal is a wise woman with loads of experience and insight. Couldn’t be more excited to have her keynoting this year.

(And she also hosts her own podcast. . .make sure you check it out here).

What we chat about:

  • What Chrystal may be scheduling at the Cooper Clinic after the conference
  • How God gave Chrystal the push into speaking and writing
  • Chrystal’s advice for those who want to start speaking publicly
  • The benefits of living out your own story instead of pursuing someone else’s
  • Being content with our voice and our current opportunities, not letting other’s product distract us from our process.
  • How God brings opportunities, we don’t need to orchestrate them
  • Is the She Speaks Conference for you
  • How to bloom & grow where you are

  1. Thank you guys for this podcast. As someone who recently feels led to speak, just started a podcast and all signed up for She Speaks, I’m pretty sure this one was at least for me. Thank you for the encouragement to bloom where I’m planted and work on the skills I need. I’ve been waffling about going to ToastMasters even though I’m supposed to be going for work. Today was another nudge that it is where I need to be. Also, I’m definitely checking out Thank you, ladies (also, you both need to come on my podcast!).

  2. What a wonderful podcast! I’m right there with you Amy, this is exactly what I needed to hear at this moment in my life. I am in the process of trying to get my first book published and it’s easy to get fixed on the product rather than the process. I am hoping to go the She Speaks, but not sure if I will be able to because of how much it is! Praying for God’s will to be done! Thanks again for an incredibly inspiring podcast.

    1. thank you Lauren for your sweet words! Praying for God to continue to guide your steps as you seek Him and faithfully pursue the opportunities He presents!
