Quite a gift that God has given her”

Tara 2016 headshotTHANK YOU for considering me for your next event!  I’m super excited to have the opportunity.

Below are suggestions for  One-Session events, Marriage Keynotes, Retreats, and Christmas Keynotes.   I speak on many different topics; however, into every message, I weave the gospel, my testimony and the basics of a quiet time.

I believe sitting with God each day is the most important relationship we can cultivate.  It is also the most important relationship we can give to the next generation.  Because God became real to me in the midst of a difficult marriage, I share my marriage story in most every talk.  It’s a big part of my testimony.

Thank you for considering me!  CLICK HERE to connect with my Event Coordinator, Holly.  She will be in touch right away to hear your vision and to get the ball rolling!


One-Session Keynote

Becoming a Godly Woman in an Ungodly World
Being a godly woman in an ungodly world is a deliberate pursuit.  Based upon the principles of the life of Daniel, this session will teach your women the importance of boundaries in their thinking and priorities.  This session also addresses practical issues such as friendships, the way we dress and what we watch and read.   Becoming a godly woman in an ungodly culture will not automatically happen.  It requires purposeful living.

Anchored in the Storms of Life
Jesus warned us that storms are inevitable.  John 16:33 says, “In this life you will have trouble.  But take heart.  I have overcome the world.”

Life is full of hard places, disappointments and overwhelming circumstances.  In this session, your women will learn:

  • 5 essentials when dark, painful storms roll into their lives
  • How to pray (when you don’t know how to pray)  during these hard seasons.

What’s in your Prayer Closet?

Jesus had a certain place He prayed.  (Luke 11:1); Daniel had an upper room. (Dan 6:10); Moses had a tent. (Exodus 33:7)  In this session, your women will learn how to set up a prayer closet.  They’ll also learn:

  • The fundamentals of prayer
  • How to incorporate powerful, throne storming phrases that bring dynamic results
  • Why we should pray and never give up!

Hearing God Speak in our Everyday Lives

“Will God speak to me???   I thought God only spoke to the Billy Graham’s and preachers of the world – not everyday people like me.”

God deeply loves us and created us to have a personal relationship with Him.  We cut ourselves short if we’re only experiencing a Sunday morning relationship with Him.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Simple, yet profound habits to help you establish a vibrant relationship with God – enabling you to hear His voice speaking personally to you.
  • Practical ways to discern God’s voice in everyday circumstances – even the situations that keep you awake and bring anxiousness to your heart.
  • Through these habits, you’ll experience the life benefits such as: greater peace in your heart; a slower life pace and wisdom to accomplish more in less time.

Living a Fruitful, Purposeful Life!
We can have a saved soul yet live a wasted life. Our lives find meaning and purpose when we know our Creator. Every believer has a life purpose. Your women will leave with a new sense of perspective and purpose. If they are willing to apply what they’ve learned, they will have a greater impact for Christ in their circles of influence. (John 15)
