“How have you seen God work in your life?” is what I was supposed to talk about for 5 minutes. I could feel my body relax and my cheeks warm up as I shared. Afterward, I was told, “You came alive when you started talking about God.”
This was not the first time I’d heard that comment. It’s not always as visible but I can’t quite explain the feeling I get inside when I’m sharing God’s truth and love with women. Maybe it’s a mix of peace and pleasure. Whether it’s on a stage speaking and teaching or over coffee, sharing God’s truth and love makes me come alive.
Eric Liddell an Olympian runner once said, “When I run I feel God’s pleasure.”
I feel God’s pleasure when I point women to God’s Love and Truth in a tangible and digestible way. I delight in listening to and encouraging women from all over the world. I’m passionate about helping moms walk in the influence God has given them right where God has them.
If you’re looking for a speaker (English or Spanish) for your women’s event, retreat, workshop, conference, or MOPs group I’d be delighted to speak to your group! I have an extensive amount of experience speaking at events in and outside of the U.S. you can find more information on my blog.

I love seeing how God has taken my small offerings and has multiplied them for His glory. We must let go of the life we “planned” so we can embrace what God has for us that’s right in front of us.
She continuously is asking the Lord to guide her as she moves forward in her desire to encourage women to find hope and truth in the season of life God has them. Her prayer is that He will establish the work of her hands. (Psalms 90:17)
