If you would like me to speak to your group, I would love to see if we can work our schedules out.
These are topics I have spoke about to groups, though if you have a particular topic in mind that is not found here, let me know your event’s theme and I will see what I can do:
“Dealing With Mom Guilt”
“Finding Rest When There’s No Sleep”
“Gospel Mentoring: Living by Faith, not Formulas”
“Training Your Children in Spiritual Warfare”
“Social Media and Ministry: Challenges and Benefits”
“God used Gretchen to speak to our group in a great way! We gave her a topic idea, and she ran with it! Her message was very well prepared – yet it was like hearing from a longtime friend. I love that she included personal experiences that were fun to listen to as well as encouraging. Gretchen delivers powerful truths in a comfortable, loving way. I highly recommend her!” – Kara Orcutt, MOPS coordinator
“Over the last couple of years, I’ve been encouraged by Gretchen’s passion to know and apply Scripture in her life, and I’ve found that she brings so much clarity and hope to the topic of mentoring! I’m truly blessed by her heart to urge women to pour into one another’s lives with the truth of God’s word.” – Bethany Barendregt, Women Encouraged
“Our homeschool support group enjoyed hearing from Gretchen as she shared her heart and down to earth wisdom with us. Her relatable experiences and practical resources were very interesting and helpful. Gretchen was a joy! We can’t wait for her to come back!” –Linda Swenson ‘Home Stars Support group’
“The evaluations [from our convention attendees] were overwhelmingly positive and I do believe that many women will be encouraged to reach out in mentoring younger women as a result.” –Ruth Vallevik, Director of Women’s Ministry for CLBA (Church of the Lutheran Brethren of America.)
