I travel cross-country bringing messages of hope and redemption to groups of all sizes as I explain the ability of God to redeem everything and turn it for good--no matter how badly we think we've blown it.
With wit and hard earned wisdom, I share how God took me from being a 15 year-old druggie, truant, juvenile delinquent facing an 8-year prison sentence and completely turned my life around.
I talk about seeing His hand in the ups and downs of life, including the loss of my oldest son and seeing the "The Rhyme and Reason Series" published.
Every time I stand before an audience my goal is to glorify God and, "Make 'em laugh, make 'em cry, make 'em think and change their lives!"

What to Expect
An audience member can expect to have their hope revived along with the assurance that God can and will redeem every mistake, failure and hurt for their good and His glory. They will laugh and they will cry as I take them along with me through the roller coaster journey of my life, sharing the failures, triumphs and tragedies--and the grace of God that was present all along the way. But mostly, their view of God will be transformed as I show them through personal, relatable, examples how He has redeemed everything I thought I had lost. They will leave with a lighter heart, and fully believing that if God can take a 15 year-old druggie, truant, juvenile delinquent facing an 8 year prison sentence and turn her into "The Rhyming Bible Lady" there is no limit to what He can do with them!
After I have finished speaking I always make myself available to talk with anyone who would like to speak with me. They will also have an opportunity to purchase signed copies of the first two books in "The Rhyme and Reason Series."
I am a faith-based inspirational speaker and the author of "The Rhyme and Reason Series." I have a powerful message about the ability of God to redeem everything, and of finding true hope in the midst of life's greatest challenges, that resonates deeply with audiences across the country.
I'm 53 and have been married for 30 years. We have three children who are in various stages of gone, so my time is my own and I am free to spend it speaking and promoting the series, two of my biggest passions in life!
I speak to groups of any size and am not limited to any specific denomination. My only requirements are a microphone, a glass of water and a book table so I can sign and sell books after I speak.
"Genesis" and "Matthew" in "The Rhyme and Reason Series" are the first two books in a projected series of 28. They are hard back, full-color, beautifully illustrated books that delight children and adults alike. Think "Dr. Seuss meets the Bible!"
With wit, wisdom and a hilarious, wise-cracking delivery, I more than live up to my motto, "Make 'em laugh, make 'em cry, make 'em think and change their lives!"
I live in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
