Tracy Waterstone Community Littleton, Co
Pam is engaging as she communicates and inspires with a call to action. Her teaching is based on Scripture and leaves you wanting to be more and live up to God’s calling. I highly recommend her for speaking and engaging one-on-one with your women’s group.

What to Expect
As a speaker, I serve audiences as an inspirational speaker where I tell personal stories, present facts and data, motivate people to take action, and pray. I can speak for 20 minutes or serve as a weekend retreat speaker. During the week, I speak at business lunches, in-service meetings, and church events.
Event coordinators often hire me to work as a mediator for their multi-generational groups who want to bridge the gap between the generations. I have a list of questions I start with and help the group find common ground. It sounds serious but it's also a fun and eye-opening.
Pamela Havey Lau Was born and raised in Cherry Hill, New Jersey as the oldest of three children. When Pam was very young her Jewish mother converted from Judaism to Christianity; soon after, her father turned to Christ as well. For almost 14 years, their young family flourished in the Presbyterian Church where Pam developed a love for Christ through Scripture. She spent the majority of her growing up years playing the piano, the flute, the bass guitar and singing in choirs. A tragic event tore her family apart and Pam lost the close relationship she shared with her mother, causing her to deeply struggle with her faith and her future. While Pam was in college working toward a Bachelor’s degree in English, The Hound of Heaven sought her through good books and poetry by C.S. Lewis, Soren Kierkegaard, and Evelyn Underhill. While traveling with a music group through Eastern Europe, Pam rededicated her life to Jesus Christ with two requests: 1) To remain single so she could travel the world as a journalist helping those who needed a voice and, 2) to not be involved with women’s ministry. God did not grant either request!
Instead, God brought the love of her life, Brad, to her at a church in Virginia. They have been married for almost 26 years. Pam was invited to speak at women’s events when she was 24-years-old. Reluctantly, she stood before the women, opened her Bible, her research and her mouth—instantly, God filled her with such compassion for the women that she knew He was with her.
Pam lives in Newberg, Oregon with her husband, Dr. Brad Lau, a college administrator. Together they have worked at Colorado State University, Sterling College, Lancaster Bible College, and George Fox University where Pam served as an English professor.
They have three teenage daughters. Michaela, 20, is a junior at Biola University studying human biology; Annalise, 18, will be studying at Azusa Pacific University, and Gabrielle, 18, is a senior in high school. As a family, they enjoy tennis, water sports, and worshiping at Lake Grove Presbyterian Church.
