Life is overwhelming. Confusing. Chaotic. Sometimes we simply need to step out of the pandemonium for a time to connect with Christ in His Word. If you are planning a special event I’d love to be a part of it, sharing God’s transforming grace. Using in-depth Bible study and stories of my (often humorous) struggles, I help women discover their next step of faith.
I am an alum of Carol Kent’s Speak Up! seminars and a Toastmaster International Competent Communicator. My speaking style is based on strong biblical teaching mixed in a fun and creative style. I’m available to speak for conferences, retreats, one-day events, and MOPS groups. Listed below are my topics which can be adapted for different lengths of time.

All of this is wrapped in a fun spa theme that will leave you refreshed body and soul!

Joyfully Ever After: Where Are You in the Cinderella Story?
Once upon a time. We all love those words. Those words promise a tale that ends with “and they all lived happily ever after” and in this discouraging, painful, heart-rending world we all desperately hope for a happy ending.
“Joyfully Ever After” retells the much-loved story of Cinderella as a picture of our relationship with the true Prince—King Jesus—and weaves in a similar story from the Song of Solomon. As these stories intertwine, you will rediscover God’s unfailing love and how you can live “joyfully ever after.”
At several points in the story, I pause to ask: “Where are you in Cinderella story?” You may find that you are stuck somewhere in the middle of the story when you really long to live “joyfully ever after.”
This presentation uses video clips from several Cinderella movies. It can be adapted for a one-session event or a whole retreat. “Joyfully Ever After” will help you:
