Speaking opportunities in 2016

On November 16, 2016 I spoke in the chapel service at Nyack College, Nyack NY – my alma mater. What a privilege to encourage students who were sitting In the same spot I was 30 years ago.It was also an opportunity to visit with some old and dear friends Jeff and  Darlene Quinn. Jeff is a VP at Nyack and was my husband’s roommate many years ago when we were students there.

On May 12, I went to prison in Louisiana! IMG_6056 I really did! (But this was a picture taken in a prison museum, no cameras are allowed inside.) I was invited to speak at the graduation ceremony for the Hannah’s Gift program at LCIW (Louisiana Correctional Institute for Women).This is a Bible study on motherhood published by Awana Lifeline and run in the prison by Dr. Kristi Miller, who authored the study. These women complete a course on how to be a godly mother even when separated from their children (like the Bible story of Hannah in the book of I Samuel).  I gave my testimony and encouraged the women that God can heal, change and restore, no matter the circumstances.

On April 9 I was invited to CrossLife church in Charlottesville VA to do a half-day conference on Bitter Truth. I gave my testimony of freedom and joy as well as some practical steps to take in overcoming a bitter heart. I had the sweet privilege of praying with several ladies afterward.
