As a former Bible Study Fellowship Teaching Leader, I know God’s Word changes women. It changed me—and I’ve seen its powerful effect on many others. My talks address real-life issues with honesty, humor, and powerful, hope-giving stories. They also have a purpose: that women hear God speak to them, respond, and experience freedom from attitudes, thoughts, and actions that have robbed them of faith and joy.

I love to laugh and have fun no matter the topic—it’s such a powerful way to bond and it softens our hearts to hear God speak.
But in addition,

  • Women desperately need practical, how-to input to live for Jesus in their multiple roles.
  • Young moms need wisdom to juggle all that’s on their plates.
  • Wives need encouragement when the going gets tough, plus motivation and ideas to make their marriages sizzle.
  • Singles need to know their incredible value to God.
  • And every woman needs to know of God’s unconditional love for them.

Now you know a little about me, let me invite you to click around my website and see where I can be of help. Let me know if you see something you like and feel free to contact me with your needs, questions, and comments.

I look forward to hearing from you.
