1. When the Hurt and the Healer Collide.
I share the story of my journey through my son’s rare illness and how Jesus sent us into the storm and provided for all our needs when all we had was Him. Strong faith is grown in storms. There is
2. When Someone You Love is Depressed
What can we do when someone we love is hurting in such a unique way we feel we have nothing to offer? The truth is that although there is plenty we cannot do, there are many things we can do. A personal journey of hope for the one who watches a loved one, helpless to help.
3. The Purpose in the Pain
We often ask “Why?” in times of trouble and distress. This talk is geared especially for the student-athlete who faces a devastating blow to a promising career. It is equally powerful for all ages, as we face loss, pain, and suffering. Life is hard- we get to choose our hard- with or without Jesus.
4. He Breathes
with My Sister’s Lungs
I tell the story of my sister who suffered a brain aneurysm and of the man who received her lungs after her family made the decision to donate her organs to save the lives of many people. This story is one that addresses how we look at answered prayer. A moving and powerful testimony to the faithfulness and awesomeness of our God.
5. How do I Know if My Child’s Speech and Language is On Track?
I share my expertise as a pediatric speech-language pathologist, offering information on child development in a fun and fresh way. I offer tips for parents and other care providers on how to enrich children’s language development. This can be a casual conversation around a table or a more formal presentation, whatever fits your group’s needs.
6. Baby Sign Language Class
Gather a group of moms, dads, daycare providers, or teen babysitters and we will learn the basics to use sign language to help young children communicate more effectively as they learn to talk. It’s fun, it’s rewarding, and young children love the power they have ‘talking with their hands’.
I began speaking in 2012, following my journey through some storms of life. Sometimes storms brew and we find ourselves in the path. Other times, I believe, God sends us into the storm to teach us of His great faithfulness, mercy, kindness, and grace.
I’ve spoken to groups large and small. My venues include MOPs groups, Women’s luncheons, Fundraising events, Confirmation classes, Faith Retreats, Summer Camps, and as a Keynote Speaker at events that include musical entertainment.
As a Christian, my messages are rooted in the truth of Scripture. As a storyteller, I bring the Word of God alive in practical ways, helping teens, men, and women find the courage to live a life of joy, even amid the dark valley.
What I offer is a meager lunch of a few fish and a couple of barley loaves. Jesus takes my offering and feeds the listeners in ways that I never could. It is why I speak. The Lord asks me to offer my story and He multiplies that to feed those who hear what He has done and continues to do in the lives of those who trust in Him.
It would be my honor and pleasure to offer my fish and loaves to your next event. Let’s see what God will do!
