Speaking Topics

Have an event and need a speaker? I'm developing a new women's retreat that combines my love of story and the stories of the women in your group! Let me know if you'd like to talk about bringing this event to the women you lead!

I am also available to speak for writing conferences, teas, luncheons, dinners... you get the idea.

I look forward to hearing from you!
Pin It!

Hi Marybeth,
I am so glad I checked out your blog today and got the 'rest of the story' about your son and marriage. I assumed, when you said your worst fears were met, that your son was still sick and your marriage fell apart. My first thought was, "I hate when satan gets the victory in Christian marriages." I, too, had my worst fear - infidelity - realized and know that ONLY through GOD'S GRACE and countless prayers that our marriage survived. As I am sure you know, when God redeems what has been lost, He restores beyond what could be asked or imagined. After resurrecting our marriage from the dead, my husband and I got 'remarried' on our 25th wedding anniversary and went on a 2nd honeymoon to Paris. Our son walked me down the isle, our older daughter was my maid of honor, and our little girls were my bridesmaids. My prayer partner gave a testimony to the 12+ years of praying for our marriages. GOD IS FAITHFUL. Our new marriage is not perfect, but alive in Him.

Hi Marybeth, I read your blog today and just wanted to comment. First let me say my sister put my onto your blog (she and you knew each other in a previous life; she lives in Waxhaw now). You sometimes never know where you get your readers and I thought you'd like to know.

It made me a bit sad to read your blog as I had just written an email to a friend of mine who is struggling with a moment of depression. Last week was the anniversary of her son's death from an awful car wreck. So, if you look around you will see many people who just need God. We spend so much time praying for others that sometimes we forget to pray for ourselves. I think when we pray for ourselves it brings us closer to Him. I guess maybe prayer in general does that.

I woke up at 4:30 this morning with another song in my head. "I need your peace" are the primary words and will more than likely be the chorus when I'm done.

So, from a dream, to the spark of a song; may God grant you peace today and put you back on solid ground.
