Guest Interviews

We can create a talk for you event including these topics:

A work in progress... just like you.
I love how patient God is with us. No matter how many times we mess up, drop the ball, stubbornly refuse, or just don't have a clue, He gives us far more grace and chances to transform our lives than most of us are willing to give ourselves. I’ve overcome quite a few challenges in my life – from divorce to cancer - and what others used to bring shame I now allow to shine. No one has it all together all the time; there's no such thing as a perfect person (yep, including them..lol).  I share my messes that God has transformed into a message of hope, perseverance, and faith.
