I’m passionate about studying Scripture and teaching from the lessons God is teaching me. I’m no preachy expert. I’m a simple girl who speaks about hope in the midst of my own struggles. Bringing God’s Word to life so that it makes a difference in our everyday life is my greatest joy in speaking. For those who want depth, I weave in some of my extensive study from the Holy Land making connections between the Old and New Testament. But I do this in a way anyone can understand. I’m also very careful to weave stories and examples that everyone can identify with. Together we’ll laugh, learn, sigh with relief, shed a tear or two, and walk away having experienced Jesus. The only regret conference attendees will have by the end of our time together is that they didn’t invite more of their friends.
