Each time my foot steps up to a platform and I open my notes looking out on a sea of faces, I take a breath and thank Jesus for the privilege it is to be His voice and teach His word. I take it very seriously and yet believe that it is what I was designed to do. I was for years a reluctant teacher; reluctant to believe that God could actually use my voice and life experience to encourage and empower others to live more fully for Him. I’ve wrestled deeply and come to embrace the gift and have had the opportunity to share in a variety of venues and events. From the west coast of North America to the East Coast and even as far as Asia, I count it a blessing to share with any audience who hunger to learn from God’s word and to live passionately for Christ and influence their corner of the world.
Whether a one-time event or weekend conference or retreat, I believe that each invitation is a God-assignment.
Themes I’ve been speaking on the past few years
Unlocking Your Influence Series
You can change the world with your influence. In the Bible we find ordinary women who dared to believe their lives and influence could make a difference. And yet, they had questions just like us. Am I enough? Can God use me in the spite of my past? Is it the right time? Can I break out of my comfort zone? Do I have enough experience? Broken messy, imperfect women like Jael, Rahab, Ruth and others surrendered their fears and questions to God and history was changed. This series is based on the book Unlocked and identifying the myths we believe that keep us from our influence and embracing our full potential.
DARE to ask, Dare to BELIEVE, Dare to be MISUNDERSTOOD and DARE to dream are the topics in this series. In depth, examining real people in the bible who DARED to live life out loud and conquer their obstacles to be obedient and committed to God.
TRUTH FACTOR Series
Real truth for real women. Sessions include: To Tell the Truth: What is God’s Truth and What do I Believe? Why Truth Matters – Consequences for Living in the Gray, Truth or Dare: Why Truth Matters in a Crisis, Unbelievable Truth: Leaving a Legacy.
