Are you planning a women’s event and looking for a speaker who can connect with women right where they are in the trenches of life? I’d love to talk with you more about speaking at your event. First, here are a few details you might be wondering about.

Types of Events

I speak at all kinds of events: conferences, retreats, support groups, workshops, Bible studies, ministry leader events, women’s teas, mother/daughter banquets, (step) parenting programs, and more!
