Testimonials, Topics, Video Clips for Event Planners & Speaking Calendar

(PRINTABLE SPEAKNG TOPICS ONE-SHEET & 

SAMPLE EVENT FLYER FOR "BETTER THAN CHOCOLATE") 

I have great topics that will challenge, inspire, and grow your women. If you want to teach the spiritual practice of journaling I am your girl (and yes I can teach virtually).


My specialty is fostering deep connections and that flows throughout all my talks.  I can present a topic within your established meeting, girl's night out, retreat, leadership training, conference OR as an experienced retreat leader I can host a turnkey mini-retreat or workshop, with a custom event flyer, promotional materials, and a detailed agenda. Here are a few testimonials....

We thoroughly enjoyed having Liz with us! She was engaging and warm as she shared interesting insights and helpful information. Women responded well to Liz who provided a refreshing presentation that left them feeling challenged, encouraged, and empowered to make changes in their lives.

The church was abuzz with talk about yesterday's retreat. I was thanked several times for hosting. God answered our prayers and women were met in their place of need. Thank you for sharing your stories, your gifts, and God's message with us.

"Liz is an energetic and passionate speaker with the ability to inspire women to draw closer to the Lord. Liz helps us put feelings to words we don't even know we have and invites us to voice them before God."

- Women's Ministry Leader​


"I hosted the journaling webinar for some female clients. We had a lovely evening learning how to process our thoughts and prayers on paper. My clients thoroughly enjoyed it! Liz is a joy to work with and her passion for helping others grow closer to God through scripture and spending quiet time with God is obvious and contagious." 

- Mary Kilberg, Event Planner
