My Speaking Opportunities
You will be blessed through hearing Sharron Cosby speak. She offers a variety of topics, as well as speaking with her husband Dan. Here's a link to Sharron Cosby's One Sheet. Dan also offers topics of his own.
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.” 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 NIV.
This verse summarizes the reason Sharron shares her story: So that she can encourage someone desperate for some hope. Using humor, southern charm and God’s Word, she connects with audiences as she shares her story of hope and encouragement. While recovery is her focus, she certainly can, and does, speak on other topics.
Sharron welcomes the opportunity to discuss your event and how she can tailor a message for your group. Connect with her here.
Below are sample topics:
Home Sweet Home – How is a paper towel tube turned into a marijuana pipe? What happened to our spoons? Notice missing aerators on your sink faucets? This interactive presentation raises parents’ awareness on how kids use household items to get high.
Hope Hooks – Where do you hang your hope when your world is crashing down upon you? Your spouse? Your job? Your chances of winning the lottery? Sharron helps the group recognize their
source of hope—God’s Word.
Help! My Knees are Locked! – Fear paralyzes us. We can’t move forward. Sharron recalls times in her life, humorous and serious, when she froze with fear and will help the group recognize their own areas of fear and what can be done to overcome them.
Peace in the Pain – Sharron shares her experiences of living with an addict. She leads the group through scriptures that encourage and uplift in spite of facing difficult circumstances. Individuals will learn there can be peace while enduring pain of loss, illness or other life situations.
Rock in My Shoe – Have you ever had an object in your shoe and continued to walk despite the discomfort? Together we will explore why we limp along in pain and what we can do to remove the offending discomfort.
Paddle Like a Duck – A duck sitting on the water appears calm and collected, but underneath the surface, he’s paddling like crazy. Does that describe your life? From the outside it looks like you’ve got it all together when on the inside, you’re spinning like a top. This presentation is based on Psalm 90:3, “Be still and know that I am God.”
Sharron and Dan Cosby
A husband-wife team is a powerful method to share the message of hope to hurting families. These workshops lend themselves well to a church setting as a community outreach. Sharron and Dan will tailor a presentation for your specific audience.
Understanding Addiction Workshop – This full-day workshop focuses on prevention and can be used as a ministry outreach for churches to educate, inform and encourage local church families about addiction. Understanding what addiction is, and isn’t, empowers parents and community leaders to confront the problem head-on with confidence.
Dan is a Florida Certified Addictions Professional in private practice. He offers practical advice for parents, siblings, employers and community leaders on the effects of addiction in the family, workplace and community. He welcomes the opportunity to customize a presentation for your group. Below are sample topics.
When Your Problems Follow You to Work – Employees coping with addiction issues at home often drag the problems to work. How does an employer handle the lack of productivity? This presentation provides practical tips to assist an employer facing employees with an addiction problem or a family member with one.
Medical Marijuana – Pros and Cons - Are there really medical benefits? Do addiction rates rise in states where it is legal? Is marijuana a gateway drug? This presentation is an eye opener as Dan provides information relative to teens smoking marijuana, the differences in the marijuana cultivated today versus the sixties and seventies and medical benefits to smoking it. Participants will leave with science-based information on this current, volatile topic.
What Is Your Addiction IQ? – This presentation provides solid scientific information about the root causes of addiction, what behaviors to look for, and what to do if problems arise. Drawing from their personal experiences, Dan and Sharron empower the group to be proactive in their approach to addiction and provide available resources.
Dan welcomes the opportunity to discuss specific topics and will develop a workshop around your specific needs.
