Speech Topics

The Art of Never Giving Up
I deliver a powerful and inspirational message of fighting through a life threatening illness, my subsequent disability as a result of that illness, and the death of my beloved husband Michael in my speech, “Dreams, Desire, and Determination, (the art of never giving up)”. I take my audience through the agony and triumphs over the past thirteen years of my life. I describe how miraculous events turned my life around, from victim to victorious, and gave me strength to become the survivor I am today. Accompanied by an amazing power point presentation chronicling my journey, this speech could be used for any event from a Graduation to a motivational extravaganza.

Here, by the Grace of God, Living Proof of the Power of Prayer
Through this speech, “Here, by the Grace of God, Living Poof of the Power of Prayer”, I give an awe-inspiring and amazing account of God’s divine intervention in saving my life.” Lying flat on my back, attached to every life sustaining machine, and monitor imaginable, I recount my personal experience with God, on one life changing, life saving night in the ICU. I know that I am the living proof of the Power of Prayer, and that I am here today, by the Grace of God. I share my story of unconditional love and light, in a powerful and inspirational message of how to live in grace and gratitude to God. God not only once, but twice gave me the miracle of life.
