Speaker

I have more than 30 years speaking experience on a wide variety of topics. I’ve spoken to churches, seminars, conferences, civic groups, health care organizations, and college campuses.

“Healing is possible. And it’s closer than you think.”

I come from a background of mixed messages and sexual abuse. I’m well acquainted with pain and loss. If I hadn’t been taken in by a solid, loving family when I was a teen, I don’t know what would have happened.

Through the love and acceptance of this new family, my heart began to soften. I became passionate about healing from and overcoming my past. I longed to discover why I was here, and begin to live that out.

This launched me into a life of serving and caring for hurting people. Whatever role I’ve filled over the last 30 years – college minister, missionary, pastor, hospice chaplain – I’ve found myself drawn to help wounded people (like me) heal and grow.

I speak on a variety of subjects, but below are some of my most requested topics. Where indicated, these can be presented as single talks or half-day (4 hour) seminars.
PERSONAL GROWTH & HEALING
The Rearview Mirror: How to Heal from Your Past (seminar or single talk)
Made for Impact: Discovering and Living Your Purpose (seminar or single talk)
Letting Go: The Incredible Power of Forgiveness (single talk)
Confronting Chaos: How to Find Peace in an Anxious World (single talk)

GRIEF & LOSS
Heartbroken: Healing from the Loss of a Spouse (seminar or single talk)
Good Grief: How to Heal from the Losses of Life (seminar or single talk)
Bah-Humbug: Handling Holiday Grief (seminar or single talk)
When Someone No Longer Remembers (single talk)

Shattering the Silence: Healing from Sexual Abuse (seminar or single talk)
Why We Should All Take Sexual Abuse Personally (single talk)
WHY?: Where is God in Sexual Trauma? (single talk)
Lies We Believe, and Live (single talk)
I’m no master or guru of anything. I’m a fellow struggler, and I still bear the scars of my wounds. But I’m healing and growing – and I’m eager to help others do the same. I’m glad we’re in this together.
