Women’s Brunch: Saturday, April 29, at 9:30 a.m.
This year’s topic is called “In the Waiting Room.” Tara Alemany, author and Sherman Church member, speaks throughout the country on topics related to business, leadership and faith. “As women, it can be challenging when we are faced with times of inactivity,” Alemany said. “We are so accustomed to being constantly on the go that when God calls us to be patient, it feels foreign and uncomfortable. We look for ways to keep ourselves occupied, to feel useful. Yet God wants us to be patient, seeking His will. When we refuse to rest, when we seek to be constantly active, we miss out on something precious.”
Alemany has contributed to such books as The Character-Based Leader, My Love to You Always, 365 Days of Gratitude and Microsoft’s 80 Tips to Supercharge Your Small Business. She is also the author of the award-winning titles The Plan that Launched a Thousand Books, due out in its third edition this year, and The Best is Yet to Come, in which she shared the lessons she learned in overcoming the death of her fiancé in 2011.
She is also the owner of a publishing company, Emerald Lake Books, and a marketing company, Aleweb Social Marketing. Between the two, she helps business authors strategically design, position and market their books to achieve specific business goals.
Alemany is president, chaplain and serves on the board of directors of a Christian writers’ critique group called “Word Weavers” that meets the third Saturday of every month at the Sherman Church.
She will speak following the brunch of homemade breakfast casseroles, pastries, fruit and beverages provided by the Sherman Church Mission and Social Outreach Committee.
