Sweet Significance-Finding My Worth in Him
Women’s Weekend Retreat

I Am Loved By Him!
God loves each one of us so much and is drawing us near Him into a love relationship. Learn how He woos us and speaks to us through His Word. Hear his love letters through Isaiah, the Song of Songs and Psalm 139.

Forgiven In Him!
Receive the forgiveness of Christ through the work of the Cross and the blood shed for each one of us at Calvary. So many times we say we are forgiven, but haven’t truly accepted His incredible gift of grace. This moving presentation takes us into the hearts of two women who were forgiven, the “sinful women” of John 8 and Luke 7. This powerful, often emotional presentation allows women to bring to the cross anything that is hindering them from having a full relationship with the Lord.

Transformed By Him!
“Do not conform any longer to the patterns of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds.” Romans 12:2 Women learn that by offering themselves as “living sacrifices” and seeking God in all areas of their lives, they will be transformed into the women they were created to be. This powerful talk illustrates how to implement this message, what the information looks like in our lives, and how to “walk it out.”

Princess to the King
Women’s Conference

Discover how we, as daughters to the King of Kings are “Beautiful in Him,” “Healed by Him,” and “Forgiven by Him.” Learn the secret to be “Content in Him.” This powerful, transforming conference uses many different forms of media to illustrate that we are His Beloved princesses and that we are indeed “precious in His sight.”

A Make-Over of the Heart - A Heart Transformation
Women’s Weekend Retreat

A Heart Transplant
“Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.”- Psalm 37:4
Our make-over begins with a complete heart transplant. Allow God to take out your old heart full of its selfish desires and replace it with a new heart, delighting in Him. Take a glimpse into the hearts of Jabez and King David, and learn what it means to truly “delight yourself in the Lord.”

A Healed Heart
“Trust in the Lord and you will enjoy safe pasture.”- Psalm 37:3
So many hearts today are crying out for love and are carrying wounds of the past that so desperately need to be healed. Allow God to reveal your hidden pain, to heal your broken heart, and replace sorrow with joy by trusting Him. Surrender to His amazing love, accept His forgiveness, and release those who have hurt you.

A Whole Heart

“Commit your way to the Lord and He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn.”- Psalm 37:5

God wants our hearts to be fully devoted to Him. Learn how He has given us power, through the Holy Spirit, over sin, temptation, and the desires of the world to live as free women completely committed to Christ.

A Prayerful Heart
“Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him.”- Psalm 37:7
God wants a natural, living, breathing relationship with you and prayer is the way to that relationship. He also wants us to slow our lives down so that we can be still and listen! Learn practical ideas to incorporate prayer into your daily routine, including praying Scripture into your life.

Everyday Celebrations
Women's Weekend Retreat

Do you long to be a woman of joy? Does it seem difficult to be filled with joy when walking through daily struggles? Tracy delves into this topic, exploring things in our lives that steal our joy and brings us back to what God's Word says about joy. The last session is a fun, idea-filled presentation, exploring practical ways to fill our homes with joy.

Walking in His Light
Women’s Conference

The Alluring Light
Jesus, the Lover of our soul, is calling us out to the darkness into His wonderful Light. Hear His heart of love wooing us into a more intimate relationship with Him.

Freedom in the Light
No matter the darkness, the Light overcomes it. Jesus wants to set us free to be all He created us to be. He came to heal the brokenhearted, to release us from the bondage of sin and death, and restore dignity, honor, and virtue to His beloved daughters.

Reflecting His Light
We were born to be Children of Light. And, as dearly loved children, we are to “put off the old self and put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.” Often the Light points us to our own cross. Women learn in order to be like Jesus, we have to “pick up our cross and follow Him,” which may mean enduring trials and hardships, but that this suffering makes us more like His reflection.

Walk to the Light
Although they separate us from the love of God, we often choose to hold on to things that keep us from growing close to Him. This moving, often emotional presentation allows women to nail to the cross anything that is hindering them from having a full relationship with the Lord.

My “professional” bio for speaking engagements follows, and I would be honored and thrilled to speak at any of your events. But, I wanted you to get a peek into my “real life” and get a glimpse of who I am everyday.

The “Real” Me…….

This is the love of my life. Brian and I have been married twenty incredible years. We have grown up together, been through lots of “ups and downs,” but we’re still mushy enough to make our kids groan! Brian is an incredible encouragement to me, supporting not only my speaking ministry, but also my first ministry as wife and mother. He is incredibly patient, putting up with my occasion temper tantrums, my procrastination of laundry piles, and my stubborn streak. I love his sense of humor, his gentle spirit, and he makes an awesome pot of chili.

I am a mother to five amazing kids. They keep me busy and our house can get crazy and very loud, but, oh, so wonderful. God has taught me so much through parenting my children. It can be challenging at times, but I have learned that I need to daily surrender them to the Lord and pray for them continually. I am so thankful and honored that God has entrusted me to nurture and mother these precious blessings.

This is our wild, crazy, and energetic dog. Although he doesn’t have any manners, he is such a sweetie and we love him to pieces. God has taught me many lessons through this member of our family, too!My hope is that when people think of me, they say, “She loves her Lord with every fiber of her being.” I want to be remembered as a woman who loves the Word and encourages others by her passion for Jesus Christ. My heart’s desire is that I am a light shining for Him. I desire to live an ordinary life with my extraordinary God.

Speaking is my passion and I am so blessed every time God calls me to share my life and my love of Him to a group of women. I am thankful and honored for every opportunity God brings to me. Thus, here is my professional bio……….
