The Phyllis Mathis School of Life
Have you ever had a moment when you suddenly knew something about yourself?
I had one a few months ago. I was attending a conference, listening to a person give a lecture on a fascinating topic, and suddenly I thought, "I want to do what she's doing."
This was not a new thought. I've been drawn to teaching ever since I presented my first fake lesson plan in college, preparing to be an elementary school teacher. Since then I've had several moments of calling, some of them kinda spooky in a message-from-God kind of way. My first big speaking event was a weekend in 1993 when I gave a sermon to 6000 people, spread out over 3 services. I was terrified and thrilled at the same time.
In 1999 I gave exactly 52 consecutive sermons, serving as the interim pastor of my church.
I've been out of the sermon-giving business for several years, so I was a bit surprised to feel the old familiar call in a purely secular context.
I love to teach. I love conversation. And I love human behavior, so I decided to combine my loves into a series of talks. Not scholarly lectures, more like interactive conversations.
Through my 25+ years of experience as a counselor, life coach, and spiritual mentor, I’ve been a keen observer of the human condition, my own included! I’m fascinated by what makes people tick, and I’m driven to discover ways that make our lives work. I have a few tricks up my sleeve.
