speaking topics

I have a passion to share with others about finding beauty in unexpected places. These are topics that I cover when I am invited to speak.

Beauty in Brokenness

Sometimes, the pain and hurt of life drag us into a hole. In our moments of brokenness, God is waiting to pull us out of the hole, and transform our lives.

Beauty in Disability

Disability is all around us. When we look at those that are different, we begin to see the places in our hearts where we are disabled.

Beauty in Understanding

I have discovered great beauty as I parent 2 precious girls with special needs, but what about those that are not familiar with the world of special needs?  What can you do if your friend’s child is diagnosed with a special need? What words of encouragement can you offer? Are there things you should not say? What can you do to help? Let’s talk about how you can be present and available to a friend who is dealing with their child’s diagnosis, and to a friend who has an older child with special needs. We will also talk about some of the misconceptions and misunderstandings that surround special needs in order to help you understand better what our everyday life is really like. In this presentation, we will engage in an open dialogue where you can freely ask any questions you may have. Let’s all learn together!

Beauty in Adoption

The good, the bad, and the ugly. An honest approach to adoption and the many ways that you can be involved.

Beauty in a Life Transformed

This is where I share my personal testimony of how God has transformed my life.

At Schools

I love going to schools and talking to kids or college students about Down syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, and Disability. (Elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, child development classes, genetic classes, therapy students, medical students, or school staff). We all need to know about those that are different.
