Who Are You? Discover the Woman God Created You to Be. “There are many virtuous and capable women in the world, but you surpass them all!” Provers 31:29

Mary’s retreat will transform your walk with Christ as she shares her funny stories, biblical examples, and powerful messages through these four topics.

    • Defining Moments Within minutes, the Woman caught in adultery had both good and bad defining moments in her life. The moment she was dragged into public and humiliated, and the moment Jesus said, “Go and sin no more.” Mary will challenge you to see both bad and good defining moments as good when used for God’s glory.
    • God Loves You The Samaritan Woman made many mistakes in her life, yet Jesus pursued her until she understood she was loved by the Savior of the world. Mary’s words of encouragement will challenge to serve Christ regardless of your past mistakes.
    • Who Are You? Mary Magdalene was possessed by seven evil spirits. Christ changed her life dramatically and she understood who she was in Christ and how to serve her Savior.
    • Dare to Dream Caleb dreamed of the Promised Land for over forty years but patiently waited for the Lord to lead the battle. Your dreams will also come into fruition when you align your dreams with God’s will for your life.

This weekend retreat is available in multiple formats.

  • Mary as a speaker only. She will present the four talks listed above. You will be provided with breakout questions for your small group leaders in advance.
  • Mary as both the speaker and the facilitator for your event. At the end of each talk, she will facilitate questions and discussions with a larger group of ladies.
  • Optional – Music by Angie Howard. Angie’s musical talent as a worship leader and soloist is uplifting and inspirational.

About Mary

Mary resides in Radnor, Ohio with her husband, Jim. Together they enjoy family, friends, farm life, and vacations. She is a farm girl at heart who discovered her niche as a Christian author and speaker.

She is the author of Bloom Where You’re Planted which is filled with flickers of laughter and moments of tears as you relate to her daily life with Jesus. Her unique style of writing intertwines the gospel with stories from her life as she turns your path of the mundane and the mayhem into extraordinary living with Christ.

As a speaker, Mary provides insights from her own life and challenges you to live an extraordinary life for Jesus. Her topics range from a season of grief where she shares how she made “Something out of Nothing” to “Bloom Where You’re Planted” as you learn to BLOOM through all of life’s circumstances.
