Dig Deeper, Draw Closer, Flourish

Let your roots grow down into Him, and let your lives be built on Him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.

It is a condition called Glossophobia (speech anxiety) and it is a form of social anxiety disorder. However, for twenty-five percent of Americans, public speaking poses no anxiety at all.
