I am a young mother of two who recently emerged into the world of surprise-single motherhood. My life is far from anything I ever expect, and over the past two years God has shown me a lot about this journey and His plans for me. He has already used my story countless times to inspire countless women. I speak on topics ranging from anger with God, to accepting circumstances, to single motherhood, to embracing in church community and finding your flock. If an audience can cry and laugh during my time behind the platform, I know I've done a good job. I combine a good balance of scripture and real life examples to make my topics applicable to everyone!

What to Expect
I am able to customize a talk to fit your event, in fact it's my favorite thing to do. I can also let you choose from a variety of different topics. I am flexible and enthusiastic and love getting to know new people. I also really enjoy the opportunity to participate in Q&A sessions with your audience. I find this is a good way to connect with the audience on a more personal level either before or after the talk.
