Connie Padmore | Founder & Chief Encourager
Hello! I'm Connie and I'm so glad you're here.
If you're on a journey to listen for God's voice, and to use your own, then you're in the right place. I'm that girl too.
I'm currently a writer, speaker and the leader of a community of phenomenal women at Unveiled. Together, we help women make space to listen for God's voice, and to use our own.
I spent most of my career preparing speakers for the main stage, but I was a TERRIFIED public speaker. I loved being hidden, behind the scenes.
But God loves bringing hidden things to LIGHT.
So He delivered me from my fear of public speaking. And I finally figured out that during all those years of preparing speakers, He was preparing me to write and to speak (I’m a little slow!).
So I took a leap, started Unveiled | Created to be a Voice and here I am helping others trample fear and use their God-given voice. I write a lot over on my blog about learning to hear God's voice, walking by faith and overcoming fear in seasons of transition. I also speak at women's events and lead group and individual coaching sessions to help women find their voice in pursuit of God's voice.
I hope you'll stick around and learn more about what we're doing. I'd love to get to know you!
A bit more about my journey...
