A dynamic presentation of a deeply profound message can be life changing. The same presentation with a good dose of humor? Even better!
Because my primary ministry is to the congregation I pastor, and I accept outside speaking engagements only when they don’t conflict with ministry at my church. That said, I love to speak at retreats, women’s groups (including MOPS), college ministries, young adult events, churches, and team events, when my schedule permits.
I love doing virtual events, and am happy to partner with you to dream up a creative presentation to encourage you and your people digitally until gathering in large groups is wise once again.
- Happy Now: Lift your load with the power of playfulness
Uncluttered: Less stuff, less stress, more soul
- Almost holy: Life-giving spiritual practices for weary people
- Risking friendship
- Joy comes in the morning, and morning comes WAY too soon: Humor for moms
In addition to my books, my publications include Christianity Today, Fathom Mag, MOPS International, and (in)courage. I’m a regular contributor to The Glorious Table and I’ve been featured on Two Peas in a Podcast; Food and Faith; More Than This; Melissa Radke’s Ordinary People, Ordinary Things; Woven; CXMH: Christianity and Mental Health; and The Ride Home with John and Kathy.
