God Does Something Special at Retreats and Conferences!
I love conferences and retreats! I’ve seen God move mightily through these gatherings and it is an honor to be a part of them. If our schedules fit, you can expect a well-prepared, Word-centric, Spirit-led teaching talk for you and your women.
From compelling keynote Bible-teaching sessions addressed to hundreds of women, to practical equipping breakouts where I teach women how to dive into the Bible for themselves, I have decades of speaking and teaching experience, and I LOVE every minute of it.
I take seriously the responsibility and privilege it is to lead your women to God's Word
All of my talks start with a core passage that we walk through. I allow the text to determine the meaning instead of going to the Word to find support for what I want to say. I find it a great privilege to study deep, handle the message as accurately as I know how, and communicate it with a view toward practical application.
There are several goals I have for my teaching ministry. It is my hope that, as a result of encountering the Word of God, women would walk away ...
- seeing the glorious character of God more clearly
- with a greater understanding of their salvation — that they understand their new identity in Christ and the new purposes given to them as a child of God
- with a deeper desire to open God's Word and obey God's Way.
Here is a list of the talks I often teach on. Most of these are available as one talk, or a three-part series. Of course, I am open to crafting new content for your event if none of these fit the needs of your event.
Everyday Faith: Hebrews 11
Everyday faith is drawing near to the presence of God. We can each draw near to the throne of grace: through the provision of Jesus (not works), in full assurance of a personal, powerful, merciful God, with a genuine heart, full of affection for Him
Everyday Hope: Hebrews 10:19-25
For the Christian, hopelessness is forgetfulness. We always have hope, however we don’t always remember that we do. Hope is a noun not a verb. The command here is to hold on to hope. Everyday hope is attained as we KNOW and HOLD FAST to God and the gospel.
Everyday Love: 1 Corinthians 13; 2 Corinthians 5:14-15
Everyday love is bearing witness to the purpose of God. Love is the highest calling we are given as Christians, because as image bearers of God, when we love, we reflect the love of Christ and glorify Him with our lives. Everything that we have done here on earth that was done out of love will remain. Everything else will be burned away.
Everyday Peace: Philippians 4:1-13
Everyday peace comes as we stand firm on the provision of God. Peace takes preparation. As we stand firm in the provision of Christ, we can experience peace in the unexpected, whether it be dealing with problematic people, stressful seasons, or concerning circumstances.
Everyday Obedience: Colossians 3:1-17
Everyday obedience is the right response to the grace of God. We are all born in sin, with an earthly nature, therefore we must engage the battle within. We have a new identity in Christ, therefore we must employ the gifts of grace we have received so that we can worship God through our everyday moments.
The Well-Watered Woman/Secrets of the Happy Soul: Psalm 1
The abundant Christian life is not just for the super-spiritual. We all have the same capacity for growth, if we abide in the provision of God. The difference is whether or not we are deeply rooted in to God’s provision.
I LOVE equipping women to study God's Word
Beyond teaching a passage, I've also worked extensively with thousands of women to teach them HOW to study the Bible. Here's what I'm seeing: today's woman wants more.
They want to go deeper than a devotional.
They want to move forward from fill-in-the-blanks.
They want their time to be spent in actual study of the Bible.
And when they do start moving forward ... WOW, it is one of the most exciting things to see!
I have a comprehensive system that helps women—both beginners and those ready for more—approach the Word of God with confidence and skill! So just let me know if you want to do a hands-on workshop for your women!
