Speaking

I like talking! It’s fun… :)

I’ve spent time on stage in front of groups ranging from ten people to eight hundred, talking about chasing dreams, writing, marketing, and issues like homelessness and hunger. My favorite thing about speaking is that moment of heart connection…when something God whispered into my heart lands in someone else’s.

I enjoy speaking to groups of all sizes and am open to chatting about your specific event needs. Or, here are some of my already prepped topics:

  •  The Promise in a Name: Finding your hope and identity in the name God gives you. (Author Testimony—Romans 4)
  • How Not to Be Content: Turning the longings in your heart into a longing for God. (For busy women, single adults, or aspiring authors)
  • That Writing Thing: Tips for chasing the writing dream. (For aspiring authors)

Writing Workshops

I’ve led a number of writing workshops for both small groups (8-10 people) and larger groups (70+). I especially love talking about writing dialogue, humor and romance. Recent workshop topics have included:

  • Ten Tips to Hook Your Readers
  • Stress-Free Marketing
