speaking to groups of women on topics such as ministry, church planting, grace, discipleship, and friendship, and I especially love teaching on passages of Scripture. If you're interested in connecting with me about speaking at your event, I'd love to hear from you!
Themes I enjoy speaking on
Church Planting and Ministry
I'm passionate about encouraging women who are serving in ministry. Past talks include:
Four Conversations to Have with Your Pastor-Husband
Common Issues for Church Planting Wives (and How to Address Them)
Tapping Into the Greatest Resource Pastor's Wives Have: Each Other
How to Be a Good Sounding Board for Your Pastor-Husband
Anchors of Identity for the Pastor's Wife
I love teaching on the gospel of grace using the book of Galatians and answering the question,"How do we live by grace and faith rather than through our own lifeless efforts?" I want women to live free from the religious performance trap and instead live from a place of joy and responsive worship. I've taught portions of the book in anywhere from 3-5 sessions for women's retreats.
Friendships and Relationships
In my talks regarding friendship and relationships with other women, my goal is to be frank as well as biblical. Past talks include:
Developing Discernment and Wisdom
Discipleship: The Whys and Hows
Friendship: How to Find and Nurture Lasting Relationships
Listen to a sample of my teaching on Philippians 2:12-18 to the women at my church.
If these topics resonate with your speaking needs and you think I'd be a good fit for your group, please don't hesitate to contact me.
