As a wife of 24 years, mom of 3, ministry leader for 10 + years, life purpose coach, MAPS facilitator, and journal creator, Liz Lassa has great topics that will challenge, inspire, and grow your women. Liz's specialty is fostering deep connections and that flows throughout all her talks. She can present a topic within your established meeting, retreat, leadership training, or conference. Another option is to create a mini-retreat uniquely designed for your group (a theme of connection could be fun) or use an existing turnkey retreat utilizing a provided flyer template.

This morning the church was abuzz with talk about the retreat yesterday and I was thanked several times for having you both. God answered our prayers and women were met in their place of need yesterday. Thank you for sharing your stories, your gifts, and God's message with us. Some of us are going to get together monthly to art journal and talk about our "God Moving" circles.
