Speaking & Retreats

In my speaking presentations, I reflect on my own faith journey and share my story in order to help others become aware of their own faith and discover ways to live their faith fully with gratitude and enthusiasm.

It is a joy to work with you in rejuvenating your faith, Awaken the Saints at your parish, and inspire the church as a whole. The following are some of the topics that I speak on, each topic can be tailored to fit your needs and time frame.

Deepen your Relationship with Jesus
Move from knowing about Jesus to knowing Jesus​.

Have you ever felt your relationship with God growing more distant and becoming unfamiliar? In this presentation I share basic insights on how to cultivate a deeper relationship with Jesus. To learn to know him, serve him, follow him and honor him every day. Learning to discern who God is in our daily lives without overstretching, overthinking, or overacting. God loves you no matter what. He is always knocking, waiting to be invited into our hearts.

Faith Fully Alive
Set your heart on fire

Live your faith daily with Joy & Gratitude. In this talk, I share inspiring stories and testimonies to help you live your faith fully, as well as, 3 ways to embrace the Catholic Faith, cultivate a friendship with Jesus Christ, and shine from within.

Finding your Purpose

Answering the questions “Why was I CREATED?” “What’s Gods purpose for me?” This talk aims at helping people identify their ‘why’ and understand how purpose influences our daily choices and decisions. As a Catholic and Christian, purpose, guides our life decisions, influences our behavior, shapes our goals, offer a sense of direction, and creates meaning in everyday life.

Praying from the Heart
Be Transformed

Enjoying a conversation with God.

Encouraging participants to be open to the Lord’s conversations through prayer. Memorized prayers are great, but conversations with God allows the individual to develop a deeper relationship. It gives us confidence, as 1 John 5:14 says “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.”

Let me take you through my own transformation journey that happens after I attend Confession, Adoration, and Mass. Experience the power that these three forms of worship can have in your life and be inspired to see these in a new light.

Today Matters
Intentional Living

Developing yourself and those around you is essential to making a great and lasting impact. The leader sees the big picture, but he or she needs other leaders to help make their mental picture a reality. In this training you will be challenged to take the many small steps that lead to success each and every day of your life.

God has given us the free will to choose what we do with our lives. This talk is an opportunity to reflect on what really matters for God, others and ourselves. Coming to understand the greatest gap is the gap between ‘knowing’ and ‘doing.’ Many of us have the best intentions to live our faith, but many of us lose momentum and commitment to make the changes we wish to see. In this session, I will help participants…

• Understand the difference between good intentions and intentional living

• Understand growth gaps and bridge the gap between knowing and doing

Share your Story
How Has God Made a Difference in Your Life? Learn How to Share Your Story

Many Catholics struggle with how to share Jesus with others. One of the easiest, most powerful ways to do this is to share a personal story of how Jesus has made a difference in your life. I will help you identify and reflect upon pivotal times in your life and share how to comfortably and easily share your story with others.
