Tabi Upton Is Speaker At Scenic City Women's Network Luncheon Sept. 27

Monday, September 10, 2012


Tabi Upton will be the speaker at the Scenic City Women’s Network Luncheon on Sept. 27, from 12-1 p.m. Her topic will be “Flourishing: One Step at a Time”. 

After two foot surgeries, seven months on crutches, and two years of total recovery, Ms. Upton learned a little about fear, impatience, discomfort, and joyful recovery.  She seeks to share the lessons learned on this challenging physical journey from brokenness to wholeness, paralleling that sojourn to the emotional and spiritual journeys we all must make in life. How do we flourish when we feel off balance, weak, immobile, and limited? Come walk with her as she shares her insights about the power of God’s healing grace, one step at a time.       

Tabi Rebekah Upton attended Biola University in sunny Southern California, where she graduated with a BA in Psychology.  She spent two years in West Africa as a Peace Corps volunteer before completing her MA in Professional Counseling from Colorado Christian University.       

She is currently employed at CBI-Richmont Counseling Center. She writes a column for the Times Free Press called “Mind Matters” and is a free-lance writer for the Chattanooga News Chronicle. She is a member of the Crossing Church and enjoys encouraging others to grow closer to God through her counseling, speaking, and writing.  

The luncheon will be at First Baptist Church, 401 Gateway Ave.  For reservations, call 698-6262 or email romaine@scwn.org. The deadline is Tuesday, Sept. 25. 

Program and lunch is $10 for members and $12 for visitors.
