Delivering a Relevant, Inspirational and Hopeful Message!



I look forward to the opportunity to meet with you in person (or virtually) to speak and bring a message of hope and inspiration!


Ladies events, conferences, retreats and workshops, are just a few of my favorite speaking engagements! I also sing (worship music) and if you turn on some big band oldies, I swing dance too (East Coast and Lindy Hop) and can teach you how (I was an instructor for many years)!


If you want to get REAL and talk about REAL issues we face as ladies, as moms, and as wives. . . well I REALLY enjoy that!  I tackle an array of serious topics and so there may be some tears or big emotions felt. However, knowing that laughter is good medicine, it's just as important that we also experience the joy of the Lord! So, yes, we will cry laughing while we have a memorable time together.


My hope is that after hearing my message, the attendees or viewing/listening audience will feel far better equipped to navigate the challenges, life issues and topics that I addressed.


The topics mentioned in my book are all subjects I enjoy speaking about: my personal story, grief, healing from trauma, pregnancy and infant loss, infertility, adoption, the 5 Love Languages®, strengthening marriages, supporting the whole family through grief, parenting, destructive patterns, ways to heal and get stronger, redemption through faith in Jesus, improving the standard of care in health systems, building and running nonprofits, and being a female entrepreneur who is in ministry.

My seminar and retreat formats are flexible and can be tailored for your event. I'd love to connect and hear your vision and see how we can COLLABORATE!


If you are hosting a marriage enrichment event, then I also have a fabulous speaker to recommend for you to invite. . . my hubby!


My husband Stephen often joins me on the stage too! We have a blast tag teaming in our talks about marriage, family, faith and the Word. We enjoy doing small groups and break-out sessions as well. Stephen is a Pastor and he's a great teacher. 


Here's some feedback we've received:


"Your message was powerful and so moving! You had me crying one minute and laughing the next!"


"You guys are so good together! You really compliment each other, and I loved hearing both a male and female perspective on this today. It's great to see a husband and wife so unified and yet comfortable being real and transparent in their personal perspective on things."


"You took our church to a whole new level! I am so grateful for what you brought today and how this is going to spur us on to go deeper in our faith. It was so good and refreshing!"
