Engaging, challenging, inspiring.

Transformational change is the goal for my audiences. My presentations are grounded in truth and designed to challenge and inspire my audiences.

While I have an exhaustive list of speaking topics, I work with event coordinators to craft a message that speaks to the specific needs of their audience.

My 31-day devotional books, Enable me, Lord, to Shift. are available for sale at events.


You brought me to tears. Thank you for sharing your story.


Keynote Messages, Lunch and Learn Talks, Retreats, Mother-Daughter Events, Workshops… my presentations can be tailored for your specific needs. Your attendees will come away feeling as though they’ve had a personal coaching session, even in the midst of hundred attendees!

I also speak to community groups and non-profit organizations that promote life!

Keynote Addresses


Miracles from the Mess or Pain to Purpose

Deaths. Divorce. Disease. Disappointments. Where are you God? Recognize His loving hand of weaving in your story to turn a mess into a miracle or to recycle the pain to purpose.


Bankrupt to Blessed

How do you respond when the bottom drops out of your life? Can any good from that? Discover how trustworthy God is and be blessed.


Don't Miss Your Assignment

Women wear multiple hats and juggle many roles. Until she ponders, there has to be more in life than this. What is it? What am I missing? Discover your unique purpose which brings your heart alive!


Shredded Red Bow

I didn’t expect that. This is not my life plan. How does a woman piece her life back together when it’s been shredded? Discover His Divine Design for your Red Bow!


From Toxicity to Treasured

Toxicity is poison and often found on women that lived in or have been abused. Learn how to strip off the emotional tag along that come from abuse (spiritual, mental, emotional, physical, and sexual) and learn how to live being a Treasured Daughter of the King. Embrace the Truth of who He says you are!

Learn to Live Beyond Emotional Pain

Sadness? Alone? Loneliness? Boredom? Is God able to fill the soul holes? Yes, He is. Learn how to move through and shift from the emotional pain and experience peace, clarity, purpose, passion, joy, and great contentment.


Hope for the Hurting

Loss comes in all sizes and shapes. The loss of a loved one, a divorce, a relocation, a loss of a job, a fractured relationship, a loss of a pet and on and on we could go. Loss hurts. Learn how to move through the hurt to get to the other side to offer comfort to others?

Your Life Matters

Tis true. One life—yours, He allows you breath. Discover your uniqueness and heighten your awareness of your life purpose to become a Harvest Worker in the Kingdom!

The Surrendered Gift of Motherhood

Motherhood may be the hardest role you’ll experience and yet the most blessed. So what does a mom do when motherhood fails to give back what she dreamed of? How does she choose to respond? Learn how to surrender and entrust the Creator with your child. After all, you don’t own your child/children—they’re on loan to you and to me. Thank you, Father, for the gift of motherhood.

It was a fantastic show. C afterwards said you were one of the best guests we’ve had and she loved your spirit. I couldn’t agree more.

~Jennifer, MI Director of AARP

God’s hand is clear and evident in your life and your ministry.  Each time you spoke this last week and weekend, I witnessed the Joy of Christ on your face and in your demeanor.  You are making a difference in the lives of those you touch. 

~Pastor Jeff, New Hope Church, E. Tawas, MI

You touched the heart of my friend, who is 70 years old and adopted. She was blessed to hear of how wanted she was, as she has struggled all her life with being adopted. Now she sees she was wanted, chosen, and planned by GOD. Your words touched her. You shared a different perspective with wanting to adopt and waiting and praying for your children. Thank you.

~Anonymous attendee

I just wanted to thank-you for your time and your teaching. I enjoyed your messages on both Saturday and Sunday, and I respect your passion, boldness, and handling of the Word.


When I looked around the room all eyes were focused on you. ( I did not see people checking their Facebook!) Not only did I see their attention but I saw tears. You were exceptional…you touched lives.
