As a writer, speaker and pastor's wife with years of frontline ministry leadership experience, my passion is to empower individuals of all ages and stages to experience fulfillment and growth in their Christian walks. In every engagement, my goal is to inspire and equip the audience with tools that will help them respond biblically to life's questions and challenges.
Amanda was such a joy to work with. She delivered the keynote at our Women's Ministry Christmas Event. It was clear she put a lot of time and effort and prayer into this event. She was confident and funny and she is a gifted speaker. She used props and it took the learning a little deeper. Amanda was quick to respond when I had a question or needed to talk to her. She was early to the event, kept to the time frame she was given. Absolutely no worries dealing with her and would be happy to book her again for future events.
Our women's group really loved Amanda's inspirational talk on new beginnings. It was just perfect for our circumstances- recovering from a difficult time in our church. She reminded us how much God truly loves us and that many times God brings about change, hence a new beginning, because we Need it and it fits in to His perfect plan. Amanda was so warm, friendly, flexible, (we ran late!) and made friends with every woman she spoke to! I would recommend her to any group looking for inspiration and true warmth of caring!
Response from Amanda Tadlock:
Thank you so much, Pam! It was such a pleasure to meet and serve all of you. Praying blessings over your new beginning!
It has been inspiring to listen to Amanda speak at our church over the past several months. She truly has a talent for bringing an authentic and personal message full of insight and encouragement. Amanda uses a perfectly balanced approach of personal experience coupled with studious research to bring messages that are relatable, insightful, and inspiring. Sprinkling in humor with her passion of learning about the bible pulls in her audience and challenges them to dig deeper for themselves through personal study. All that said, I've never had a better bible study teacher in my 30+ years of attending church.
I have observed Amanda at women's retreats and events and each time she brings something fresh and thought provoking. I really appreciate her ability to simplify God's word for everyday living. Amanda is transparent and fun. She interacts with the audience through visuals, hands-on activities, and props. I still have a feather from one of her talks as a reminder to sharpen our focus and find those in need of God's love. I would highly recommend Amanda for any speaking engagement you have planned. She will be fully prepared and engaging!
Amanda is one of my favorite Sunday school teachers of all time!! She doesn't just go over the lesson, but truly digs deep into it pointing out any pertinent details that most of us would overlook. She brings such passion and energy each time I see her speak and is always well prepared. Can't wait to hear her again!!
Amanda is a beautiful young woman with an amazing sweet heart for the Lord. She not only speaks God's truth, but truly cares about each woman. She is very creative and is great at using visuals to help women remember her point. She is great at using humor, but also open up her heart to share her vulnerable side and gives God the victory for all He has done. She is energetic, adorable, and well spoken. Love her!
I always look forward to hearing what God has shared with Amanda. She isn't afraid to dig deep and comes well prepared. She's gifted with knowledge and wisdom, but the true gift she shares is the love she has for God and His Word.
Amanda is an amazing speaker with a heart for the Lord. She ties God's word to everyday situations and makes it relevant. She brings His word alive. She is simply amazing!
From the first time I sat and listened to Amanda speak, I've looked forward to her teaching the Word of God. It's obvious that she has a love for God and His Word, is always prepared for a lesson and also includes humor and personal stories as well. Definitely one of my favorites!
Amanda is an amazing teacher and speaker. She draws in her audience with personal stories you can relate to. She has such a love for the word of God and that is evident in her teaching.
Amanda is truly gifted when it comes to sharing God's Word with others. Her teachings are inspiring, motivating and insightful. Definitely in my top ten of favorite people to receive biblical truth from.

What to Expect
My approach is that I'm a regular gal, with experiences and challenges like everyone else. In my presentations, I take everyday issues and explore insightful biblical study methods, providing examples of how to effectively use our Sword to respond to life's questions and heal from its challenges, as well as to thrive as a powerful, faith-filled women. My style of speaking is very conversational, energetic, humorous...and I'm very transparent - I share my life, victories, failures and all, as examples and applications of the things I teach. I'm dynamic, physical, I love to tell stories, I love props; we laugh, we cry and we walk away changed together!
Hi! I'm Amanda. I'm first and foremost a Christ-follower - but I also have the privilege of being a mama, a pastor's wife, a Bible teacher, and a blogger - I know what it is to struggle with finding my purpose, discontent, poor relationship decisions and unhealthy lifestyle habits. I've lived in the dirty, rough places, in the darkness. My testimony is all about how God can transform a life - when we offer Him a willing, teachable heart.
I have served professionally in adult ministry for 10 years, teaching Bible studies and coordinating ministry programs. Most recently, I founded Feathers for Flight, an online Bible study and discipleship resource. While my audience age range and composition is ever-varied, my passion is to empower adults, particularly women, to study the Word in a fresh way, taking cultural and historical and linguistic context and patterns into consideration, and then to truly apply biblical principles to our community through discipleship, mentorship and accountability. My call is to empower adults to experience passion and growth in their Christian walks by equipping them with a unique skill set of Bible study tools and methodologies. My goal is to break dependence on commentaries and pastors to "tell us what it means," and to build up our competence and confidence as we grow our ability to interpret Scripture with Scripture.
My approach and style is that I'm a regular gal, with experiences and challenges like everyone else - all I had to offer the Lord was a heart willing to listen and to obey what I heard. And He rewarded that willingness with profound understanding of Scripture. I want to share that, I desire that people know they can do this, that they can read, understand, and become proficient at understanding and living out the truth of the Bible - and find such true joy in it!
In my presentations, I take everyday issues and explore those methods in my event-speaking, providing examples of how to effectively use our Sword to respond to life's questions and heal from its challenges, as well as to thrive as a powerful, faith-filled women. My style of speaking is very conversational, and I'm very transparent - I share my life, victories, failures and all, as examples and applications of the things I teach. I'm dynamic, physical, I love to tell stories, I love props; we laugh, we cry and we walk away changed together!

• The value of looking for patterns that help us understand God's principles and character
• How to discern the spiritual applications for Old Testament commandments and connect them to the things Jesus taught

• Basic introduction to biblical languages, and how studying these can enhance our understanding, and some fun and meaningful word studies
