What was once my greatest fear, has become one of my greatest blessings.

Public speaking. Many of us fear it or don’t like it. The story behind how this once-crippling fear has become my blessing is quite amazing. Speaking in public now brings me great joy.


I consider it an honor to encourage various audiences. Sharing real-life, hope-filled experiences help us relate to one another. Such opportunities have included sharing messages during church services, encouraging women in large business groups, offering hope through uplifting talks at women’s gatherings and luncheons, and leading small groups and Bible studies.

Some topics I speak on include:

  • Blooming Where You’re Planted
  • Living Faith-Filled and Fearless
  • Goodbye Guilt
  • Beyond Brokenness
  • Living Loved
  • Embracing Who You Are?
  • Why Me, Lord?
  • It’s All Going to Be Okay
  • Burned-out on Busy
  • Rediscovering Christmas
  • Simplify the Season

I’m speaking next at our BYOB and B event on Thursday, April 23, 6 p.m. in Marion. Details to come soon.

Every other month I host an evening of encouragement for women called BYOB and B (Bring Your Own Bible and Beverage) in the Cedar Rapids, Iowa area. Designed to equip, refresh, and encourage women, the topics vary according to the season or time of year. Come check out the next one!

I’d love to encourage your group or church! Contact me if you or someone you know would be blessed by encouraging, life-filled words.
