If you are looking for a speaker for your event, here’s what I need you to know:
- I am coming to serve your women to the best of my ability. That includes on and off the stage. My favorite part of speaking is actually after the event, when I get to hear other women’s stories, and make deep connections. Also, feel free putting me to work setting up centerpieces or any other odd jobs. (I’m not creative in that aspect, but I can follow instructions!) I come early to help and put you at ease. I stay until the last person is gone.
- As a speaker, I want to work with you and support you in what you are trying to accomplish in your event. We are in this together.
- My passion is for helping women understand the depth of love that is found in the gospel. To be honest, no matter where the topic starts, I end up talking about the gospel, and all Jesus has done. I’m not about self-help. I believe all of the Bible points to Christ’s finished work of redemption.
“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.)
