Delivered into Destiny – Prepared on Purpose

Audience: All Women

Synopsis: Deliverance is a healing transforming process that takes us away from what we have done and what has been done to us. It clears a path for us to become acquainted with the great intent and design God has for us. Destiny is the purpose for which Rotary Club Speechwe are designed and created. The desires of our heart, our gifts and our passions align to position us for a successful purposed filled life. We begin to live in a better way, and we begin to be more.

I have arrived at a season I call my best life. I have found my way out of emotional isolation as I learned to be courageous enough to be vulnerable and strong enough to be genuine in my relationships. Living in my recently discovered destiny, I am moving toward my unborn dreams and possibilities. I have broken up with fear as I learned and practiced new overcoming behaviors. I have let go of my guilt and shame. I found that forgiveness is an action that I could give and receive; I am determined to finish my life strong, in this place where I never thought I would be.

If you are looking for an authentic and dynamic speaker for you event to empower women, I would love to share my transformational story with your group. They will:

  • Experience an inspirational, empowering, and encouraging testimony about survival against all odds.
  • Hear how an unexpected “benediction” became deliverance into a destiny of passion and purpose.
  • Discuss how deliverance repositions us into our purpose.

“Tyra, thank you for your wisdom, your commitment, and your wonderful communication skills. I will always carry a little of Tyra Garlington around with me.”Darlene Glass, Peninsula Motor Club

Nothing is Wasted – Using the Mask of Your Past to Uncover Your Future

Audience: Ideal for all women in personal or professional transition

Synopsis: Are you wearing a mask? You know, to cover the stuff only you and God know about? The stuff safely hidden under your makeup? The stuff you think of as your imperfections and secrets; the feelings of shame and guilt about things done to you over which you had no control.

??????????I wore a mask for many years. I thought it was critical to my success. I thought being authentic and transparent was way too risky. But there came a day when the mask didn’t work anymore. The secrets were too many and the pain too great making the mask too heavy. It broke and I broke and fell into the dark wilderness of clinical depression. My life hit a four way stop. The air went out of my tires. I ran out of gas. My favorite place was alone.

That was the end… a benediction of sorts… or so I thought. But Mercy said, ” no, I’m not going to let you go.” God said, ” my grace is sufficient. You are not over, you have not completed what I brought you here to do. So get up Tyra, walk into your destiny!”

But how?

If you are looking for an authentic and dynamic speaker for your event to empower women, I would love to share my transformational story with your group. They will:

  • Meet themselves in the mirror without their masks.
  • Understand that it’s the things that you fight for and struggle with before earning that have the greatest worth.
  • Embrace their significance and learn that nothing that has happened in their lives; the good, the bad and the scary will be wasted in their purposed filled life.

“You are a very special person, with a gift for getting to the heart of the problem and making sure everyone sees it. I wish you could pass that along to me, especially in this time of stress and trouble in this organization. I enjoy talking with you so much, and always come away knowing what I need to do. You are inspirational and a unifying force! You will be missed.” Elizabeth Murphy, Leadership Fairfax Inc., CEO

The Superwoman Syndrome – The Cost of the S on Your Chest & How to Soar Without Your Cape

Audience: Women who are living who they think they are supposed to be and struggling to gain and maintain balance among the competing priorities in their personal and professional lives.

Synopsis: Baby Boomer and Gen X women in this increasingly competitive world often forget to treat themselves like someone they love. The pressures of their multiple and sometimes conflicting roles have them ignoring what is best for them. They often ??????????create a persona of “Superwoman” in order to survive. When they miss the mark, they often lose perspective and blame themselves. They are unable to separate themselves from their circumstances. As a result, the purpose for which they were created is compromised.

For 22 years I practiced being a superwoman, I mean serious superwoman with an S on my chest and a long flowing red cape to cover all of the trappings of who I thought I should be. My goal was to exceed all expectations as a wife, mother, and professional. I felt I always had to be ON and look the part, compete with the boys and win at all costs … and there were costs. I also felt I had to know all of the answers in order to be respected. I was tired …no exhausted but couldn’t show it because I was superwoman.

Now the S on my chest stands for significant because I know that I matter. I treat myself with self-compassion. I am valuable and I can contribute in a way that honors who I am. Helping other women realize their power and their value is the drive behind my work as an author, educator, inspirational speaker and personal coach.

If you are looking for an authentic and dynamic speaker for you event to empower women, I would love to share my transformational story with your group so they can embrace their significance and learn to soar even without the cape.

Women will be empowered to:

  • Identify the barriers that are keeping them from living the life they want versus the life they think they should live.
  • Articulate the purpose for which they think they were created.
  • Understand the difference between their circumstances and their purpose.

“A steel magnolia through and through, Tyra has the Southern-belle delicate exterior with an unbreakable core that has seen her through many obstacles. While she has suffered abuse, loss, and cancer; her unbounded faith and belief that God has led her to help others who face insurmountable odds, volunteering to help women dealing with domestic violence and homelessness and mentoring children who live in worlds they cannot control.”Amelia Townsend, Director of Communications, Reston, Association.

Say Yes to the Power Within You

Audience: All Women involved in goal setting and dreams

Synopsis: Have you ever wondered if you are living less than Christ died to give you?

In my own life, I knew God called me to certain endeavors. Yet every time I turned around, a roadblock stood in my way. It took years of stumbling along before the light came on as to why there was such a distance between what God called me to do and the life I was living.

If God has called you to some endeavor and you are frustrated that it has not become a reality. Setbacks and challenges are opportunities for you to renew and reposition yourself. This is a time of preparation and testing. It is okay to be afraid as long as your courage is greater than your fear.

The Audiences will be encouraged to:

  • Be accountable for their success.
  • Inventory current personal and professional goals.
  • Identify any barriers to success.
  • Identify requirements necessary to break down barriers.

“I will so miss watching you masterfully bring people together around complex thoughts for the intended purpose of inspiring thought and action.”Karen Cleveland, Chairman of the Board, Leadership Fairfax Inc.

Tyra's intuition and ability to coach you beyond the pain of your past and inspire you to do the work
necessary to step boldly into your future is phenomenal. She is one of the wisest women I know and I
am delighted to have her in my corner, cheering me on along the way. With Tyra on my side, I am confident that I will move through the challenges life brings.”
