Speaking

Let’s talk about the stuff that matters. Face. to. Face. Nothing makes my heart happier than catching your eye as together we dig deep into the things that make us come alive. Here are a few topics I love to explore:
 

 

 

 

  • Playdates with God:

It’s important to be deliberate in setting aside time to spend with God but I’ve found it’s also good to be playful. We are all made differently, why should our quiet time look the same? Let’s explore the power of a playful spirit in stoking the embers of our intimacy with God.

  • When You Love Someone Who has Depression:

Loving someone who has Depression is hard. Maybe you feel like giving up, packing your bags and never looking back. Sister, I’ve been there. Depression doesn’t affect just one person but impacts the entire family. I’ll share some of our story, talk about the stigma of mental illness and Christianity, and talk about some things that help. Because some things are worth fighting for.

  • Scriptural Topics:

If your event is focusing on a particular scripture or Biblical theme, I’m your girl. One of my favorite things is to dig deep in study and share the insights God gives. The Word is alive and active and it speaks afresh every time we turn our hearts and ears to hear. Let’s listen together.
