Looking for Speaking Opportunities

Posted by Tracy Wainwright at 10:54 AM
I did my first "official" talk in January of this year (I have "unofficially" talked A LOT in my life,) but am officially kicking off my speaking ministry this fall. I am looking for opportunies to speak to women, moms (yes, I know they're women, too), and writers. I'd love for you to browse my list of workshop topics and pass along any opportunities you may know of.

Thanks!

All Women Work – This workshop answers the question of whether women and moms should work outside the home. Taking a Biblical perspective, the argument is made that God calls us all to different situations and different jobs. The myth that we can have it all is busted, and reframed that we can have all that God calls us to have through making work decisions based on an intimate, personal relationship with Him, and not cultural ideas about working women, and encourages respect for and between all women.
The Balancing Act – This workshop overviews the importance of finding balance in life. Balance is crucial to not only surviving life and the responsibilities that come with it, but to thrive in life. Participants will walk away with practical tips and tools that they can begin to implement immediately. Women will leave the workshop empowered to live in the rewards of a life in balance and in pursuit of God’s plan for an abundant life.
Bible Study under the Blow Dryer – Finding time for God and Bible study does not just happen. In the midst of being a wife, taking care of a house, and raising children there’s barely time to think, much less read and study the Bible. However, it is possible to make spiritual growth a priority. By being intentional, and willing to study the Bible, even while drying your hair, you can grow closer to God and live under His blessing.
Fruitful Motherhood – Any mom knows that life is busy. Sometimes it seems that our schedules and demands placed on our children are running our lives. We live for our schedules instead of our schedules working for us. To top it off, we rarely feel like we’re actually getting anything done. This workshop presents the keys to taking control of our schedules and turning busyness into fruitfulness.
Guilt-free Motherhood – Mothers tend to hold on to guilt. Guilt about working. Guilt about not signing up for the right classes. Guilt about broken relationships. Guilt about parenting mistakes. As that guilt is held on to, it negatively affects our emotional, spiritual, and parental lives. Jesus came to offer us life under grace, not guilt. This workshop gives moms the tools to let go of guilt and step into graceful parenting.
Living Life Together – This workshop highlights the importance of women living life in mutual encouragement and benefit. Relationships are meant to be a blessing, but also take work. Participants will gain increased knowledge in how to foster relationships with other women in real ways and enjoy sharing life lived in healthy, positive girl-friendships.
Making Marriage Magical – Marriage is the most unique relationship we ever enter into. There is an intimacy that makes us vulnerable. It’s a relationship that puts us at risk of getting hurt, but also can offer the most rewarding relationship we can have. This workshop answers the question of what marriage is meant to be, what are the true rewards of marriage, and the rules that, when followed, increase the rewards of marriage.
Parenting For Success – Parenting is the most challenging and rewarding job we will ever take on. If it were easy or there was one key thing we could do to guarantee success, we wouldn’t need education and encouragement in our journey. This workshop provides Biblically-based, realistic parenting techniques that are invaluable to parents and easily implemented in any family.
Practicing Patience – Patience is a virtue that helps us live life more abundantly and have healthy relationships with others. It is essential as a mom. Patience is hard to get, as it takes patience to get it. This workshop shows how to pursue and take hold of patience in a way that makes it a reality and a lifestyle.
The Silky Life: The real stay-at-home mom – There are many ideas about women who don’t work outside of the home. While all women are different, moms who stay at home all have something in common. They all have rewards and challenges. This workshop provides tools effective to help moms overcome the challenges, thoroughly enjoy the rewards, and flourish as an individual and a mom.
Starting a Writing Career – There are many resources to help writers begin a writing career. This workshop focuses on the most essential tasks, tips, and tools for a writer to begin a writing career and be successful. Participants will walk away with steps they can implement immediately to begin or rejuvenate their creative work.
Starting a Writing Career on a Budget – Getting into the writing and publishing world provides countless opportunities. Many of these opportunities come with a price tag. However, there are practical things that a new writer can do on a small budget to delve into the world of writing and publishing. This workshop gets to the meat of what writers can do to launch their writing career without breaking the bank.

I'll try to get a contact person for Mom2Mom at Peninsula Community Chapel. Also there is a group called Family Focus in Grafton. Not sure if they bring in speakers, but it may be worth checking out.
