Amie Stone King photoFill Your Own Cup First?

April 12, 2017
Guest Speaker

Amie Stone King

Making A Scene, Social Media Marketing

Imagine waking each day brimming with excitement about your job, your family and your own potential.

Women are often held to incredible standards. Expectations to manage households, deal with interpersonal relationships within the family, and excel in the professional world leave little time for the nourishment of our inner selves. Stress grows if we continually ignore our own needs, believing that this sacrifice is just part of attaining goals. It’s not. Numerous studies have shown that self-care actually makes us better workers, partners, parents and friends.

During this talk, we will explore the ways fear, failure, hindsight and hope play into our daily decisions. Through readings, self-reflection and encouraging dialogue, you will discover how a daily practice of self-care can enrich your life and the lives of those around you. You’ll find that learning to “Fill your own cup first,” may have surprising results in both your personal and professional lives.

Amie Stone King, owner of Making A Scene, Social Media Marketing, is the mother of a teen daughter and young son. Recently, Amie left her job as Communications Director for First Baptist Church of Austin to focus on family, writing and other creative pursuits.

Amie holds a BFA and MA from the University of Texas. Following graduate school, she worked as co-chair for the Austin based non-profit Access to Learning and as the Volunteer Coordinator and education team member at the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum. After the birth of her first child, she became a booking agent serving several local authors. Amie finds balance in her life through writing, acting, playing the flute, serving as a church deacon and as a dedicated volunteer to both her son’s elementary and her daughter’s top-selling Girl Scout cookie business.

She sits on the Alumni Board of the Scottish Rite Dormitory and in 2007 compiled and edited the book, It’s a Sardine’s Life for Me, (Nortex Press) a collection of stories spanning nine decades at the all-girls dormitory at the University of Texas. Her history of the Zeta House at the University of Texas is forthcoming. In the past few years Amie has found fulfillment sharing the gift of self-care with others.
