Why I am a speaker…

Beneath the lipstick and sugarcoating, life is extremely complicated. My passion for women’s ministry came from my own soul searching, trying to figure out who I was in Christ, what I am called to do with that, and how it all fits into this crazy world.

My goal is for each woman I encounter to feel as though she is seen, heard, and has a place to belong. I hope that my transparency of life and all of its challenges will help others see that we are not the only ones fighting the fight, and we don’t have to do it alone. Join me as we dig deeper into the adventures and challenges of life.

I enjoy empowering women to take a leap of faith…or giving them a little push!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Melissa as a speaker.  I have attended events where she has spoken and she has also spoken at our Restored ministry event. Melissa is funny, relatable, and oh so real. She has the unique gift of speaking biblical truth in a way anyone can understand — and she peppers in just the right amount of personal stories and anecdotes to make her content truly welcoming to all. Melissa brings a variety of life experiences to relate to any audience. We look forward to welcoming her back to speak at another event.

Melissa has this fearless, direct quality about her that makes me feel safe. Like I can trust her with my children, my story, my mistakes. But, the best part is that she’s got this real relationship with God that fuels everything. It is such an encouraging experience to watch Melissa stand before a crowd sharing her joy-filled, but not picture-perfect, journey with Jesus. She makes me laugh out loud and feel incredibly thankful for grace and friendship. Have a listen to my friend, Melissa. You’ll be glad you did.
