I am so excited to bring you two incredible guests this Saturday, September 28. During the first half of the show I’ll be introducing you to one of the San Antonio Women of Joy speaker team, Jill Kelly. Jill is the wife of retired Buffalo Bills Quarterback and Pro Football Hall of Famer Jim Kelly and the mother of three children: Erin, Hunter (February 14, 1997 – August 5, 2005), and Camryn.
After their infant son Hunter was diagnosed with a fatal disease called Krabbe Leukodystrophy, Jim and Jill founded the Hunter’s Hope Foundation. As Chairwoman of Hunter’s Hope, Jill helps leukodystrophy children and their families by raising awareness and research funds for these devastating diseases, and advocating for Universal Newborn Screening. Jill and Jim have appeared on television shows including “Oprah,” “Good Morning America,” “The Today Show,” The Discovery Channel, ESPN and Fox Sports. They have been featured in magazines such as USA Today, McCall’s Magazine, Reader’s Digest and People. Jill is the author of Without a Word: How a Boy’s Unspoken Love Changed Everything (FaithWords) and a popular speaker.
Then during my second half hour, I’m delighted to have in studio with me Debbie Taylor Williams.
Debbie’s passion for Christ is evident in her energetic style and insightful personality. Having been diagnosed with ovarian cancer at age 29, Debbie brings spiritual maturity and biblical depth to her audiences. Her spiritual beauty and willingness to be led by God bring a relevant message to women of all ages, backgrounds and denominations. Debbie is an authentic servant of Christ with a focus to encourage, challenge and inspire her audiences to become women of passion, purpose and prayer.
Debbie’s passionate focus to help others know God’s life-changing power has led her to author numerous Bible studies, teach and lead retreats and conferences and serve as keynote speaker at events throughout the United States.
She has been a television guest on Life Today with James and Betty Robison, Daystar, The Harvest Show, Family Net’s Every Day With Marcus and Lisa, At Home Live! with Chuck and Jeni, God Answers Prayer, Friends and Neighbors with Kim Gravel, Atlanta Live, and San Antonio’s TBN.
Before establishing Hill Country Ministries in 1999, Debbie served as the Teaching Leader for Bible Study Fellowship, where she led a class of 450 women. She later co-founded and taught Women’s Bible Study at her church involving more than 300 multi-denominational women.
In addition to Debbie being a keynote speaker, she has been a featured columnist for the Women Reaching Texas newsletter and has served as a guest panelist at the Women’s Leadership Conference in Ft. Worth, Texas. She is presently a religion columnist for the Kerrville Daily Times newspaper and has been featured in P31 magazine.
Debbie’s spiritual investment in others was acknowledged by her community when she was recognized as the 2000 Woman of the Year in Kerrville, Texas.
We will be giving away some of Jill Kelly’s books as well as 2 copies of Plan A Woman in a Plan B World, and Debbie will be joining me for lunch at El Jarro’s from 12:30 to 2:00 pm so we’d love to have you plan to join us!
So, mark your calendar for Saturday, September 28 from 11AM to Noon CST on AM 630 KSLR or streaming live on www.kslr.com.
