I share a message of FAITH, HOPE, and LOVE through my life experiences as a 3 time cancer survivor, who has also experienced the loss or death of 7 children. I believe our FAITH in God, and a proper understanding of who He is allows us to have HOPE; not just for eternal life, but through our daily life and trials. It is this hope that enables us to LOVE God and love others, as we strive to become more like Him to bring comfort to a broken world!

Most Commonly Requested Talks:
You Are Not Alone: After sharing my story, I offer tangible solutions of what NOT to say, what to say, and how to provide support for those who are hurting. My focus is to help the audience understand why common Christian cliche’s, and empty platitudes can hinder those who grieve, instead of help them heal.
Unmet Expectations and Grief: There is a disparity between people who are hurting who don’t know what they need and their loved ones who don’t know how to help. This causes unmet expectations that we need to recognize, deal with, and adjust to.
Concept of God: Our personal view of who we believe God is shapes how we read the Bible, how we react in life, and how we respond in our trials. In this talk, we will uncover the three layers of what God’s will or “thelema” is, to bring about a better understanding of who God is and who He isn’t.
I have shared my experiences to many Churches, Marriage and Women’s Ministries, MOPS, Grief Share Groups, Grief Support Groups, Bereaved Parents Conferences, and Leadership Seminars.
