(A glimpse of what to anticipate when I come to speak to your group.)

One of my greatest joys and passions is teaching God’s Word and speaking on topics that equip and inspire His women to live purposeful, godly lives for His glory.

If you have an occasion that necessitates a teacher/speaker, please feel free to contact me here.  I’d love to explore the possibility of joining you in ministering to God’s women.

Because of our church-plant and my role there, I am available for speaking events Monday-Saturday. For retreats, I need to leave late Saturday night or early Sunday morning to be home for church the following morning. Options are available for doing all sessions Fri-Sat OR having the 4th session an interactive discussion/reflection time with prayer, worship, and communion (depends on retreat topic–see options below). We can rest assured, After I leave the Holy Spirit is still there speaking to women’s hearts and doing His work in their lives! Thanks for your grace and understanding in this.

What Others Are Saying…

Although I enjoy studying and speaking on new passages and topics, and always want to seek to share God’s specific word for your occasion, I’m narrowing each year’s retreat offering based on the themes God is teaching me at the time:

2016-2017 Retreat Topic Offerings

  1. AS YOU GO: Where Mission Meets Life (4-part retreat through book of Matthew, focusing on Great Commission)
  2. ONE: Courageous Community (3 or 4-part retreat focusing on John 17)
  3. LOVE: What the world needs now. (3 or 4-part retreat through 1 John.) We’ll be looking together at God’s crazy extravagant love for us, how He adopted us and made us His kids, and how our identity as His children changes everything. Then we’ll look at how that impacts our love for our brothers and sisters in Christ, and finally how that impacts our interaction with the world–issues of justice, love, and compassion.
  4. FLOURISH: How to grow with God. (3 or 4-part retreat) God’s desire for us is that we would flourish in this life of faith, experiencing the abundant life of abiding in His love and bearing spiritual fruit for His glory. But just as physical plants face many things that threaten their ability to flourish, we too face many dangers which can cause us to live weak, wilted, fruitless, defeated and discouraged lives. Together we’ll look at four of these dangers and discover from God’s Word how we can truly flourish, and bloom where we are planted.
  5. CHANGED: How to have a heart like His. (3 or 4-part retreat through Galatians) Transformation from the inside out, through Galatians 3-6. 1. The grace that frees (Gal. 3-4) 2. The battle we face. (Gal. 4-5) 3. The good He grows. (Gal. 5) 4. The hands we hold. (Gal. 5-6)

Current Single Teachings/Workshops:

  1. LIGHT (CHRISTMAS message!)
  2. FLOURISH (How to grow with God)
  3. YOU ARE RICH (The surprising truth of all you already have)
  4. FAITHFULLY FRUGAL (How to save more, give more, live more.)
