Writing and Speaking

God has called me to communicate God’s Word for the people of God. Here are past opportunities that I’ve had to write and speak on God’s Word.


Now That I’m Called: A guide for women discerning a call to ministry (Zondervan Academic, July 24, 2018)

Credo magazine: “No Woman’s Chit-Chat” (Nov. 2017)

IVP’s The Well: “The Mystery of Discernment” (March 28, 2017)

Beeson magazine (2016, 2017, 2018-forthcoming)


One of my great joys is being with women and teaching them God’s Word. I speak at retreats for women, young females called to ministry and those in ministry leadership.
