Featured Women's Event Keynote:

WHY, GOD?

Trusting When Answers Don't Come


Sooner or later, everyone voices the universal human question, "Why, God?" Either in a whisper, afraid God might be listening. Or in a shriek, determined God will hear. And often the answer is ... nothing. (Except for "well-intentioned" individuals who deliver opinions wrapped in Bible verses that feel more like accusations than answers.)

Heaven, however, is silent.

In this presentation, born from agonizing personal experiences, listeners will be fortified in their faith as Stephanie shares from her story and others in the Bible. Most significantly, women will learn from Jesus who was left hanging -- literally -- while God seemed silent.

"Why" will have its say. It just doesn't have to have the last word. Empower your people for a tenacious faith even when heaven is silent.

Three Nots to a Resolute Faith

Fear Not! Defeat What's Devouring Your Impact 


Fear is sneaky! Women are often motivated by three covert fears that stay well hidden: being

~ found out, 

~ left out, and

~ thrown out.

Yet they can kick these fears to the curb!

Through the stories of five women in the Bible, ladies will see how to defeat these fears sabotaging their identity and impact.

They will replace self-limiting lies with God’s liberating truths!

Flail Not! Why God Wants You Confident


What's the difference between confidence and arrogance? This question distracts too many women from fully engaging in the life God desires for them.

Women will be energized to see why confidence is critical to:

~ building healthy relationships,

~ building self-awareness instead of being self-absorbed,

~ building readiness for opportunities God provides.

Women will be empowered to get off of the "not enough/too much" teeter-totter and walk confidently as daughters of the King. 

Faint Not! When Storms Compel Your Savvy Strength


Storms are inevitable. Panicking is not. Just as tornadoes require different actions than hurricanes, so life's storms compel distinct responses.

Several Bible characters will show women facing a storm how to discern when it's wise to

~ evacuate,

~ hunker down, or

~ grab a surfboard. 

Women will be better prepared to respond to the storms of life with Scripturally-sound reasoning and assurances of God's presence and peace.

 Model, Train, Focus: Three Practices of Wise Parents

 

 

Because I Read So! Principles From the World's Greatest Parenting Book


"Train up a child" can provoke more frustration than encouragement. Yes, but how do I train them?! Yet principles from the Bible can empower parents to boldly declare, "Because I read so!" 

From Genesis to Revelation, God the Father models how to raise and relate to children. In this message, parents will learn practical and powerful principles!

 A story-rich message filled with humor, parents will leave inspired not only to engage with their children but with the Bible. When they need to give an answer for their decisions, they will be able to point to Scripture and say, "Because I read so!" 

Hold Your Horses! Training Kids to Bridle Their Will


Raising a child is like training a horse, a creature ruled by appetites and resistant to submission. Parents will laugh, engage, and may buck off familiar but crippling ideas as they step back into the daily parenting arena with renewed vigor!  

It's easy to confuse "training" a child with "breaking" a child or thinking kids only need to run free to eventually become mature. Neither approach works for horses, and it doesn't work for children either.  

Instead, parents will see how to become a trainer, passing the reins successfully to their child at the right time. They will re-think the idea of "strong will" as they understand the relationship between the mind, will, and emotions. They'll be ready to pull on their boots and "giddy-up" into the work of raising children.  

Look at Me! Three Lenses Wise Parents Use


If only good intentions were enough to raise kids to maturity! But sincerity doesn't automatically produce the desired results. Parents will have sharper clarity, courage, and compassion through three "lenses" as they focus on eternal outcomes. 

Using photography as a metaphor, parents will see: 

~ a wide-angle lens that brings clarity to prioritize bringing children into God's family 

~ a telephoto lens that brings courage to focus on children's need for integrity

~ a macro lens that brings compassion by focusing on what's hard to see in a child's heart 

Specialty topics for parents & educators


 

 

 

Boy, Oh Boy! Raising Men of Depth and Character


A son can make you confident he's headed to be a pastor one day and a prisoner the next! Parents will gain powerful tools to build this mix of exuberance and exasperation, confusion and courage into depth and character.  

Moms and dads will be outfitted with: 

~ awareness of the state of men and boys in society;

~ insights into how boys think and feel 

~ understanding their physical needs and challenges 

~ courage to counter the culture's definition of "manhood" without resorting to simplistic stereotypes 

~ practical principles with real-world application

Adolescence! Thriving During the Great Brain Remodel


The brain undergoes a marvelous and mysterious remodel during adolescence, roughly ages 12-24. This profoundly impacts an adolescent's priorities, perspectives, and behavior.

Extensive research-backed data, shared in an easy-to-understand manner, shows the connections between reward, relationships, risk, and self-regulation. 

Be empowered for the adolescent years with courage, compassion, and confidence.

Reach the Summit While Still Breathing! How to Homeschool & Live to Celebrate It


Home schooling is more like scaling Mt. Everest than strolling through Central Park.

How can you climb with confidence instead of fear? How can you avoid an avalanche of activities, the trap of perfectionism, and the craters of exhaustion? What is required to reach the summit and not be wiped out?

You’ll meet the five essential guides for a successful journey. An encouraging message of substance, seasoned with mirth.

Let's see how I can add value to your audience
