Melanie, the Speaker

We all need others who can motivate and inspire us to think about our current lives, step out of comfort zones and take those next steps toward the goals God intended we achieve.

I have been certified and trained by the American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC) and the Therapon Belief Institute in a number of areas.

I’ve used those skills to minister to hundreds of people over the course of thirty years. You might say I’ve learned a few things and I’m ready to share them with your group or audience!

Speaking is one of my favorite activities. I always look forward to making new friends!

I have a long history of teaching/speaking at a variety of venues, including churches of differing denominations, training arenas, ministry groups, conferences and retreat centers. Each presentation can be customized to fit your need and time slot. No engagement is too small! I would love the opportunity to discuss your event!
