Invite Lori to your next event

 

When speaking I tend to emphasize transferability and personal life application. I desire for people to remember the key points and scriptures of a talk so they can discuss them with others, pass them on to people they are discipling and share them with their children. I enjoy speaking directly from scripture letting God be the teacher and His words lead the way, me a mere communication tool in His hand.

Diving into scripture and writing new talks for a specific theme of an event or retreat is a common practice. I also have several topics I enjoy sharing as they are life messages of mine. Listed below are a small sample of those topics.

From large group gatherings, women’s retreats, conferences and events-I would love to talk more about how I might serve your group. Below is a sampling of just some of the topics I love to speak on! 

 

The Time Is Now Retreat

This is Lori’s signature retreat! Lori draws from her 20 years of discipling women to help churches and ministries implement or grow a discipleship ministry. Lori walks the women from start to finish in how to find, prepare for and disciple another woman. All the guess work is taken out and women leave the retreat inspired and compelled to make a difference in the life of another through the ministry of discipleship. This four talk retreat includes listening notes and small group discussion questions for each session. 

Treasure Retreat

This popular retreat has an eternal mindset theme. The idea of living not just for what we can attain today but making sure the choices we are making now will make a difference in heaven and leave a lasting impact on others after we depart from this earth. Extremely practical, with loads of daily life application, your women will feel empowered to live life to the fullest and keep heaven’s values central. This three talk retreat includes listening notes and small group discussion questions for each session. 

Shine Retreat

Everyone is on a spiritual journey-our role is to light the path and point them to Christ. Learning how to have a lifestyle of evangelism is empowering! Pulling from real examples from her own life, Lori ensures this retreat is extremely practical, down to earth, and readily applicable to use right away in reaching others for Christ. Your women will leave excited and equipped to make more of the relationships around them see God using them as a tool in His hands to bring people to Himself! This three talk retreat includes listening notes and small group discussion questions for each session. 

Beloved Retreat

Through scripture we see God pursuing us, protecting us, shielding us and answering our prayers. During this retreat Lori leads women through scripture that help deepen their love for God as they see Him caring for their lives. Each woman will feel a sense that while she may not understand God’s timing and the many twists and turns in life, she can be assured of His love, His care and His pursuit of her. This four talk retreat includes listening notes and small group discussion questions for each session. 

Simplify Retreat

In the business of life we get side tracked, drift off course, and lose focus on what is most important-God, His Word, His Kingdom. A woman that has simplified her life can run unhindered and untangled, can endure hardships and even weather the storms of life. Lori brings familiar passages of scripture to life as she shares personal stories from her own life and practical help to simply to run for Him! This three talk retreat includes listening notes and small group discussion questions for each session. 

Leaving a Legacy

Everyone passes through life leaving something behind. Our legacy is crafted moment by moment, day-by-day, as the sum of our life story weaves a biography. So the question becomes not if you will leave a legacy, but what kind of legacy will you leave? What is your life telling those around you today? Using Deuteronomy 6 as the key passage we look at how to pass on positive, spiritual legacies and how not to pass down negative legacies. Filled with stories and examples of ordinary people passing their faith up, down and sideways women are encouraged to leave a legacy worth passing on!

Spiritual Warfare

A Bible scholar once said, “Sooner or later every believer discovers that the Christian life is a battleground, not a playground, and that he faces an enemy who is much stronger than he is-apart from the Lord. This powerful talk explores the depth of the spiritual battle we are in, looks carefully at the tactics of the enemy (he is patient, he speaks in first person, he attacks your weaknesses, etc.), and how to put on the armor of God. Ephesians 6:10-12 is the central passage of this talk.

The Power of Prayer

Originally written as a follow up talk to Spiritual Warfare. In Ephesians 6:18, Paul lists another one of our resources in battle-prayer. This talk examines the very real power of our prayers to change things in our lives. Daniel 10:12-13 helps us understand what is going on behind the scenes in the spiritual realm when we pray. Also discussed are helpful hints to put prayer into practice in our everyday lives.

The Ultimate Examination

Martin Luther said that on his calendar there were but two days: “Today and That Day.” He recognized that all the days of his earthly existence were preparation for that momentous day when he would stand before God in eternity and give account for his life. This intense message unpacks a central passage about the judgment seat of Christ, 1 Corinthians 3:10-15. We learn in-depth about the judgment seat and how to live each day in preparation for that day.

Laying up Treasures

Originally written as a follow-up to the Ultimate Examination. If you are going to have treasures, make sure you store them somewhere safe. The central passage, Matthew 6:19-21, teaches us what kind of treasures to invest in and what kind of treasures won’t stand the test of time, and where to store them for safe keeping.

God’s Relentless Love

Using Luke 15 as the text we will learn clearly that God is a God who is immensely concerned with saving those who are lost, those who have not put their faith in Christ yet. We uncover some hidden gems in this passage that will forever change how we read and study this passage. As a result women will be able to make several very personal applications to their lives and be able to identify with the cast of characters in this most famous parable/chapter.

Embracing Your Destiny

God has a special destiny for each of us. A unique life of purpose to live in his kingdom. A life where we fall deeper in love with Jesus and are used by God for kingdom purposes. Everything about you, your personality, your laugh, your hair and yes, even your bra size are put together perfectly to fulfill the unique destiny He has for you. Jeremiah 29:11-13, Psalm 32:8-10, 139:16.

Living with Something to Share

Sharing Christ and the good news of the gospel needs to go from something we go do (like on a mission trip) to something we are. We need to become evangelistic about Jesus as a way of life. Acts 17:26-27 is a power passage confirming that God has already set in motion people’s salvation and we get to be a part of the process if we will keep our eyes open for opportunities to share the hope we have in Christ.

Whether speaking, training, or discipling, Lori brings a passion to see women raised up to be all they can be in the Lord, teaching to women of all ages on a wide variety of topics. She currently makes her home in Katy, TX, with her husband Alan and two young children Josh and Jake.
