SPEAKING

I’ve always been a talker, but I’ve been so honored that God has opened the door in the past few years for me to also begin “speaking.”  Like, from the stage!  With notes and a microphone!  Sometimes I even wear a blazer.  

I have a passion for connecting with other women and encouraging them in their roles and their walk with the Lord.  Often when I study God’s Word, it will speak to me in a brand new way, and I just want to grab the next person I see and shake them by the shoulders and say “Listen to this!  Can you believe this?!”  Fortunately, I’ve learned to share my excitement about the Bible without shaking too many people, and I have found great joy in speaking and teaching about how God’s Word impacts our daily lives.  I’ve had the opportunity to teach at women’s retreats all over the Pacific Northwest.

I would love to connect with you if you have an event coming up, and are looking for someone to relate to your group in authentic ways, while still communicating the unchanging Truths of God’s Word.

PURE JOY

A verse by verse study of the book of Philippians.  Paul says he has learned the secret to being content, and Jen digs into this book with listeners to learn more about the secret of having joy in all circumstances.

a living faith

The book of James is full of practical instruction for believers in how to walk the walk, not just talk the talk.  Jen highlights important themes from the book written by the brother of Jesus, including joy in suffering, controlling the tongue, and the importance of our actions matching our profession of faith.

my only aim

In Acts 20:24, Paul summarizes his life’s goal: to die to himself and spend his whole life testifying to the good news of Jesus Christ.  Jen breaks down this verse, connecting it with other passages in the New Testament, so we can apply his singular focus to our own lives.

Funny and real

"Jen made us laugh and cry in the same 30 minutes!"

“Our woman loved having Jen as our retreat speaker!  She is so comfortable on stage, and the stories she shared, along with the truth from God’s Word, kept us focused and interested.  It was clear Jen’s goal wasn’t just to entertain us (although we were entertained–Jen made us laugh and cry in the same 30 minutes!), but she wanted us to be changed by the Truth.  And we were.”

-Susan Morris,  Valley River Baptist Church

verse by verse teaching style

"Jen engaged our hearts and our minds."

“Jen was a perfect speaker for our women’s conference!  We’ve gotten only positive feedback from our ladies.  We especially liked how Jen taught us from the Bible verse-by-verse, not just sharing her own opinion on a certain topic, but truly studying the context and history of the passage.  She also has such a humble and relatable teaching style, including hilarious stories in the midst of powerful teaching of Scripture.  We can’t wait to have her back!”
