Confidence in Christ’s #2 Command

I knocked on my neighbors’ doors… and lived to tell about it!

I help women discover natural ways to get to know their neighbors without being weird. They will learn how to overcome their fears about sharing their faith and find fulfillment in obeying Christ’s #2 command.

My passion is missional living, and I speak on a variety of topics to help women flourish in their own homes. My speaking and teaching are appropriate for multi-denominational, multi-generational audiences. I am accustomed to teaching women from Baptist, Episcopal, Lutheran, Methodist, Catholic, Vineyard, Nazarene, Church of Christ and Church of God churches as well as non-denominational congregations.

Please call me at (740) 654-5423 or email me to talk about your heart for your neighborhood and community! I will work with your goals, theme and budget to provide a moving message for your group.

Speaking Topics


“I want to love my neighbor, but I don’t know how.” Most of us feel guilty about Christ’s command to love our neighbor, but let’s be honest—we don’t even know most of the people living around us. How can we love people we don’t even know? Besides, doesn’t it count as “loving our neighbor” when we send money to missionaries and put out yard signs for our church? Are we supposed to just knock on our neighbors’ doors and tell them about Jesus?

“They’ll think I’m weird.”

Amy Lively’s book, How to Love Your Neighbor Without Being Weird, helps you overcome fears about getting to know your neighbors and sharing your faith. You’ll learn simple, practical ways to get to know your neighbors, using your God-given personality. As you venture out of the comfort of your living room and into the lives of your neighbors, you’ll form authentic friendships, create a safer community, and find fulfillment in obeying Christ’s #2 command.

The End Is Near The Mayans may have been wrong, but the Bible promises, “The end of the world is coming soon!” (1 Peter 4:7  NLT). We don’t know when the world will end, but we can learn what kind of people we should be in the meantime.

Women Behaving Wisely I was having a fit in my family room, telling God (no, yelling at God) about my problems, demanding to know what He was going to do about them. His answer was Psalm 101, “the householder’s psalm,” a pledge to behave wisely in our own homes.

His Glory, Her Story We are made in the image of God to reveal His glory through our stories. Understand how the Trinity of God—Father, Spirit and Son—is reflected in the trichotomy of man—heart, soul and strength—and how we can shine His love into our homes.
