Whether you are looking for a meeting, special event, or multi day retreat speaker, I would love to speak with you about your group’s needs. Below are a sampling of four of my most popular event topics. As a ministry leader, speaker, and retreat leader for the last 15 years, I am passionate about bringing scripture-based messages with practical applications that will leave your guests both encouraged and equipped. Please contact me to discuss your date and event.
Putting Christ in Your Christmas Celebrations is a tailored 30-50 minute talk which will encourage and equip women to declutter their holiday season, recapture the joy of the season, and put Christ at the center of their family’s celebrations. Through practical tools, light-hearted personal tales, and easy-to-implement family strategies, women in your ministry will leave this event ready to take on the holiday season.
This talk is well suited for women’s ministry holiday events, and MOPS group meetings. It can also be tailored to include Thanksgiving ideas. This talk is best scheduled from mid Oct through the beginning of December.
Amidst the Easter eggs, candy, and giant bunny it is hard to find Jesus in our Easter celebrations. This encouraging 30-50 minute customizable talk will help women at your event prepare their hearts and homes to celebrate the holiest day in the Christian year – Easter. With practical tips for setting her and her family’s hearts, eyes, and minds on Christ, women will leave your event with easy to use tools to find Jesus in their Easter celebrations this year. I will share ideas for using the Lenten season (the 40 days before Easter) as a strategic discipleship time with their children (and themselves!). I will demonstrate three of our family’s favorite Easter traditions which help remind us all about the true reason for celebration – our eternal life!
How in our busy schedules of work, school, dance class, laundry, swim lessons, and more laundry are we supposed to fit in “religious education” for our children? God has laid out the perfect plan, and the good news is that it doesn’t require you to sign up for one more thing. In this session, which can be tailored to fit into a 30 to 45 minute talk, we will walk through Deuteronomy 6:4-9 and explore God’s plan for how to raise a big faith in our children’s hearts. Parents will be challenged and equipped to start intentionally growing a big faith in their children’s hearts through practical and easy to implement steps.
With the birth of every new baby, we gather around looking for family resemblances. “She has her mother’s nose.” While there is nothing we can do about the nose our child gets, there are other traits we will affect. Will people say, “She has the faith of her mother?” The Legacy Retreat offers parents practical tools for growing their own faith and passing on an eternal inheritance to their children.
Your retreat can be customized with 2-4 sessions including:
Casting a vision: What is God’s plan for children’s spiritual education? It’s you! Claiming our identity as our family’s primary faith trainers.
Ending generation sins: Children inherit the bad with the good from their parents. In this session we will look at how to identify generational sins in your family and make practical plans to end them in your generation.
How is your torch? Before we can pass on a vibrant faith to our children we have to have one of our own. How to develop your personal walk with the Lord.
When we sit at home: How to cultivate family habits of regular faith talks, devotions, and family times of worship and prayer. This session includes a hands-on calendaring project to help parents learn healthy family scheduling rhythms in our overly busy culture.
Milestones and Blessings: How to mark significant moments in your child’s spiritual development. Parents will also learn how to give their child a blessing.
