Speaking Calculator – Words to Minutes Calculator







Would you like to be able to calculate how long your speaking gig will take?  Many times you are given certain about of time to speak and they let you know that you really can’t go past the allotted amount of time they’ve given you.

Speaking Calculator

I have actually been at workshops where there are several workshops going on at the same time and everyone is supposed to end at the same time, then the participants are able to go to several workshops at the conference.  If a speaker runs on for too long it can really throw a kink into things for all of the other speakers as well as for the attendees.

Well, I have something here for you that is really neat, you know how I love to pass along really great techniques, biz tips, gadgets and techy wisdom to you don’t you!?  I have something here you are really going to love to help you with a pretty good guesstimation of how long your speech will be.

Check out this website that helps you convert the number of words you have written for your speech into the time it takes to deliver your speech.  It’s quick and easy, it’s online and it’s absolutely FREE!  We love free don’t we!?

This techy tool is awesome when you are preparing for a speech or a presentation. The number of minutes you will take is dependent on the number of words and your speed of speech, or reading speed.

Now, be sure to note that this calculator is really close but can’t claim 100% accuracy because some people are slow speakers and some are fast, BUT it even does it’s best to help you choose which speed!

Doors and More Doors

Door 5


Heavenly Doors…

What are the God-given doorways in your life?


Have you ever given much thought to the doors that the Lord might be opening in your life? Especially when you wait on him to call you, then as you truly listen to Him and proceed to take the courage to actually do what He asks of you? The LORD God Himself actually escorts you as you take the steps! If you commence to walking with Him you soon will be astonished with the incredible journey He will take you on! For me it has been truly grand!

As I become more and more obedient to Him, to His direction, the blessings just keep coming my way! I have been so busy these last few months experiencing the many doors He has opened unto me! I have been astounded by His abundance and blessing upon my life. All of the Holy Spirit directed connections, the new women He has placed in my life and all that we are up to together for Him is huge!

God has so much to bestow upon those who seek Him and seek His will. What perspective do you take as you begin to view the Heavenly Doors? Have you ever really thought about doors and the passageways as heavenly portals?

Do you choose to stay in the room with your ears plugged and the doors shut tightly all around you in order not to venture out?  Does that idea feel safer to you so that you do not have to take any risks?

What would it be like for you if you were to view the word risk and shift the perspective of it? Shift the viewpoint of RISK to FAITH?

  • Faithfully seeing a door as a heavenly portal opening up for you?
  • What doors are you keeping tightly shut that you know you should be opening?
  • What might be on the other side of the door should you open it?

In the verse above you see that as you listen to the calling of GOD you will be blessed! I am so amazed at the way He calls us forth to do His work! Until the end of time we must be listening to Him, listening to His voice, His Words of wisdom, His Words of direction, His Words of love.

His true desire is to bless us, not to cause us to fear Him or His calling on our lives.

I love the second part of this passage as we are instructed to watch DAILY at His doors. Not just every now and then, or once a month when we think about it, but every single day we are to be WAITING AND WATCHING at His doors, waiting for Him to bless us!

The thought of this is beautiful to me as I begin to become more and more aware of the doors that He is guiding me to walk through each and every day.

Picture the glow peeking through, radiating from underneath the door, beckoning you to come… to draw closer and closer to the door.

See yourself with your face up close to the door; you begin to peer through the opening seeing the lights illuminating!  You are filled with warmth and hope for the day!

You begin to rise, placing your hand upon the old antique door knob which juts out from the old wooden hewn door – leading to the heavenly places of God, as He calls you forth; you go… you go…

You journey on with expectancy from Him who leads…

On the amazing journey with you,
Kathryn Rich Bonner


Closeup frangipani flowerSo what’s in your heart? What’s Your BIG DREAM?

What do you REALLY think you are here for?

Do you feel the sacred yearnings of your life dreams crawling up and out of the deep hole you’ve been hiding in now for far too long?

Are you ready to attach your blessed butterfly wings and fly out? Tired of cocooning?  Feeling ready to fly?  I totally understand the cocooning and the flying. It’s just a part of the journey.

The secret is to keep dreaming and dreaming even bigger – and then sometimes to dream small – it all depends on where you are on the journey.

Some of us are wounded, some of us are cautious, some of us are fearful.

Some of us are fearless and jumping off cliffs allowing our faith to carry us to parts wild and unknown!

Some of us are comparing ourselves to others and feeling unworthy. Some of us are tired of the comparisons. Some of us are thinking things that stop us from BEING and LIVING OUR God-given Dreams.  Some of seem to always guide others into their dreams but can’t seem to do so for ourselves.  What the &^%@#*!  is up with that?!

We have to be willing to allow ourselves to become Spiritwalkers… we need to be willing to allow for our Spirit to guide us and THEN be willing to actually follow that guidance unswervingly and bravely!  We don’t do our dreams alone this way! Learn to listen to the sacred whispers of your soul… Awaken! Rise Up! Become! 

I am afraid of lots of things when it comes to my dreams. We ALL are! It’s ok to say it and name it and confess it!  Oh man it totally SUCKS too I know!  We all hate it, we all know it.

We are creative and long to live our creative lives with our creative minds.  For some reason there is just some anguish that comes along with it, BUT we don’t want to go down that dark path…

Yellow Brick RoadWe need to follow after the light – the yellow brick road, so to speak.  So, you must keep your Big Dreams alive! But HOW? 

As we consider looking across time, looking at how we can manage the risks of creativity.  I believe that your dreams are from God… They are Divine. You all have this Creative Genius living within you! He protects you from the demise of going down that dark road.  So… how you can begin to follow after your Big God-given Dream is to be a Spiritwalker!

You are a Creative Being. You are a vessel – allow yourself to go with the Spirit within you… this way you don’t have to rely fully on YOU. There is a creative mystical and majestic mind power within you. We have to be “tapped into this mystical and majestic Spirit” within.  You can begin to hear and feel your dreams coming THROUGH YOU when you allow this to occur!  Did you catch the word “allow”?  Everything that comes through us is NOT necessarily US, it’s the Spirit within us! I know many of you are totally going to “get this” as you are reading it – and others will think this girl is wacked! LOL!  Others reading this will want this! Those of you who are “wanting” this will have it, just for the asking! 

Your process of Creating and Owning your Big Dreams is this wondrous and crazy and brilliant journey!  When you start thinking things like “This is crazy!” “What am I doing?” “Why am I bothering?” Start changing this by SPEAKING to your dream OUT LOUD! There is POWER in your Spoken Word… Renew your MIND with the power of your Spoken Word. Do not allow the thoughts in your head to keep you from it.  I know you know what I am talking about.

You are able to step through this “portal” and become ignited by God! You will light up and become your dream!  This is yours to have, divinely appointed to you!

Let me share this one last thought for you before I go…

The word DESIRE is broken down like this: DE=Of | Sire=The Father

… So this beautiful, holy, sacred, brilliant, crazy, amazing DESIRE is OF THE FATHER!  So, it’s yours to do! Yours to create! Yours to have with help with from The Spirit! You don’t do it alone… 

If you are to dance, write, coach, speak, teach… DO IT!

Keep holding fast to your Desires, Your amazing dreams!

Dancing, Dreaming & Desiring,
Kathryn Rich Bonner

Rise Up in Your Spirit



Accept that you are unique & amazing & brilliant
& powerful & sacred & exhilarating!

Those of us on this crazy, hectic, tripped out Entrepreneurial Journey realize this is 2-25definitely a highway less traveled that makes perfect sense to us. BUT those in our family and many of our friends, to them it may make no sense at all.

Many of them may not want you to follow this path and because of their misunderstandings of it. They may even try to hold you back, or say this is too hard for you, and cause you to question this path yourself!

They may see you scaling upward and stepping outside your comfort zone and seeing you uncomfortable makes them uncomfortable so they try to “fix you” by trying to make you comfortable again!

Not everyone is keen on the idea of stepping outside their comfort zone and becoming uncomfortable. Some don’t like the idea of taking any kind of risks or facing fears.

3-25And when they see you doing this they can confront you and tell you to stop or that you are a bit crazy… this can wear one down. They may not like it because they themselves are not living into their own dreams and you could be a huge reminder to them of all that they themselves should be doing.

It’s hard with those that are really close to you don’t “get it” and it can even feel like they are putting you down, questioning you, judging you. They don’t know how to THINK BIG.

THEN they want the “old you” back, in your old familiar place of not taking leaps of faith, and not thinking big, to being comfy with them again.

This is exactly the reason that having a coach (like me :)) or a mentor, or an accountability partner to hold you in that sacred space of being brave, taking leaps across big skies and jumping over buildings! To help you reach your dreams, and conquer your big biz and be so supportive for you, especially those like me who’ve been there and can help you make those amazing spectacular GINORMOUS SHIFTS!

Awakening the Entrepreneurial Journey,
Kathryn Rich Bonner
