Governor Palin addressed the Women of Joy conference April 16, 2010, in Louisville, KY. Her speech, which ran nearly 40 minutes rocked the house.
She addressed her faith, family and joy which help keep her grounded. Her speech focused on moms, wives, employers and being good citizens, largely avoiding politics. Gov Palin thanked Prayer Warriors all over the nation, whose prayers she said give her strength. She discussed how she likes to have someone pray with her before significant events.
Gov. Palin spoke of the importance of having a partner in life and for her that helpmate is Todd. She spoke of her days as a sports reporter and how reporting morphed from a focus on who, what, when, where, why and how to interjection of political bias. Gov. Palin said that Prayer Warriors help her develop a thicker skin, allowing her to stay focused on the objective.
“God has allowed us to be extraordinary by providing us opportunities that can really blow our minds, if we know where to look,” she said.
Gov. Palin said that “our men and women in uniform are a force for good in the world.” She spoke frankly about her pregnancy with Trig and how the diagnosis of Down Syndrome first tested her faith. In discussing the ultrasound test results with her husband Todd, Gov. Palin asked, “why us?” He responded, “why not us?” Gov. Palin came to realize that this was something she could handle.
Faith, Gov. Palin said guided her through the curveballs that life tends to throw.
