I love speaking for audiences of all sizes, whether its Churches, Mom’s Groups, Women’s Bible Studies, or Medical Professionals! If you are a…

Church/Mom’s Group/Bible Study:

I enjoy helping church staff understand the lives of special needs families, encouraging mothers in parenting their special needs children, and sharing with congregations what I’ve learned about children suffering with a life-changing diagnosis.

Why do I enjoy speaking in churches? Because I can freely share about the HOPE that is within me. My prayer has always been from Psalm 40:1-3 – that God would use my ministry of speaking and writing to strengthen other’s faith and draw them closer to him.

Some Topics Include:
“Trusting God When Life Doesn’t Go as Planned”

“Grieving is Key to A Healthy Special Needs Journey”

“What to do When Your Child is Suffering”

“Living Out the Gospel in Difficult Circumstances”

“Five Ways to Minister to Special Needs Families”

Medical Professionals:

I frequently speak with medical professionals on Family-Centered Care in the medical environment!

Topics Include:
“Patient and Family-Centered Care from the
Family’s Perspective”

“What Parents Want Doctors to Know About
Their Special Needs Child”

Have a topic in mind? Let me know what you need! I’m open to speaking on a variety of topics and can help you fit them to your audience!
