As a public speaker, I love to share my heart and lessons-learned with MOPS groups, women’s groups, and others in community and educational settings. The following topics can be customized for you when in the need for a speaker at your next event. Just let me know a bit about your group or organization and we can start to discuss how to make my visit serve you and your people well. As a public speaker, I blend Christian scriptural truths with real-life examples and humor.
I’m currently lining up my public speaking schedule for the 2016/2017 year.
This Momma Knows…Pregnancy brings weight gain, hemorrhoids, and great potential for spiritual growth!
As Christians do our preparations for birth look different than the world’s? Regardless of if you plan to “go natural” or use medical pain relief, learn how to invite Christ into your pregnancy and allow Him to grow you, your marriage, and your parenting. This is a great topic for both first time parents, as well as mommas or couples that are expanding their families again. There’s also a lot to learn for women who are mentoring the newest generation of mommas.
This Momma Knows…Our bodies are AMAZING and perfectly designed for giving birth.
As women, we spend a lot of time complaining about our hormones (rightfully so!). But in pregnancy and childbirth, hormones are the drivers in our bodies that sustain and bring forth life! Learn about new medical research that reveals how our creator designed the amazing process of birth. You’ll learn to better appreciate your body, respect the way we’ve been made, and have a deeper understanding of what your baby needs in the early days after birth. This is true fierce flourishing!
This Momma Knows…The baby isn’t the only one crying those first weeks of parenthood!

This Momma Knows…It’s hard to keep quiet when you know you are right!
Are you are an independent, strong-willed woman like me? If so, you know it’s hard to put that dirty little word “submission” into proper perspective.

This Momma Knows…Roots matter for your hair as well as your family.
