Need a compelling guest speaker?

Your desire is to host more than an event. You want to offer your attendees an experience worth talking about and ideas that facilitate change. That's my heart, too. 

I am passionate to share all that God has revealed to me as my husband, Doug, and I travel across the country researching how brave love can strengthen families and repurpose education in our country.

Love heals.

Love is the fuel of maturity.

Love builds personal capacity.

Love changes everything.

There is great hope!

The following presentations can be tailored to fit any audience, including:

Women’s ministry

Men’s ministry

Marriage retreats/groups

Parenting retreats/groups

Youth groups

Education/homeschool groups

Ministry groups and church leadership

Small groups, congregations, and organizations


Contending for Love at Home

For parents, grandparents, and caregivers

We live in a day of unprecedented anxiety and fear. Our children have easy access to many influences that can quickly injure their souls. Our children need a place to find strength for the battles, and to find healing in their struggles.


In this presentation, I offer practical ideas for making home a safe place to struggle and thrive and offers a “roadmap to reconnection” when struggles seem to control children's behaviors and beliefs.


What would LOVE do now?

For parents, grandparents, and educators

Loving a snuggly newborn can be delightful; daily life with a toddler can be a bit more challenging. As children grow up, the challenge for parents of choosing “love” in place of “law” gets intense. How do we “train up a child up” without resorting to manipulation? How do we shape behavior without managing it? What does love look and sound like when parenting struggles are real?


In this presentation, I offer ten “Love for Law trades” that parents can implement immediately to build trusting relationships with their children, even on the difficult days!



For youth groups

Young people struggle to find deep satisfaction in a crowded “be good at everything” schedule. It can feel like more weight added to an already heavy load to include “love one another” to the day’s agenda.


In this presentation, I share the hope of Christ as Life using two giant boxes of Legos to represent the old life, and the new tools available as gifts in our new identity. Offering new perspectives and practical applications, I untangle the lies young people face every day in a performance obsessed culture. 


For homeschool moms and dads

The homeschool journey almost always experiences at least one chapter or volume of real crisis. Many homeschool parents question their own gifting or fall under the load of being parent and teacher.


In this presentation, I offer the hope that homeschool can be so much more than “school at home.” I present 12 life-giving ideas about “this, not that” to show the hope of fearless learning in a transformational education.


Homeschool Offers More Hope

Than School at Home


Aiming at a New Target

For women or men ministries, congregations, or organizations

Performance obsessed cultures can never promote healing; they only create more wounding. What if every day life offered opportunities, not to live the old life better, but to live the new life well? What does this new life look like,  practically speaking? 


In this presentation, I offer the hope of transformational love in relationships–and a lens to use to clearly see when we revert to a “business” and “performance” mindset in the sacred spaces of our relationships. When we aim at performance, relationships suffer.  When we prioritize relationships, performance goes off the chart.
