Events, Retreats & Workshops

Dear Adventurers,

I’m available for speaking engagements to church and women’s groups, workshops, week-end retreats, and conferences. 

I have numerous prepared talks on topics like spiritual growth (Jesus and the Beanstalk), confrontation and speaking up for Christ (The Art of Hard Conversations), living the Jesus adventure (God was My Escape Plan), learning to love Christian community (Why Dwarves Need Elves), and God’s plan to redeem our emotional life (Bless Your Heart). 

I love Jesus and I’m passionate about His people. I speak, as I write, with humor, transparency, and biblical teaching about the long journey from the ground to glory.

The adventure is upon us . . . are you up for it?

—Lori

    I don’t remember how I stumbled across Lori’s blog, Deeper with Jesus in Rhode Island, but from the first post I read she had me. Lori writes with authority and humility, with justice and mercy. With vulnerability and strength. The word deeper in her blog title is exactly right. Her…

    Want truth? This is the book for you. There's a catch: you must be willing to open your mind and maybe even change the way you live. This collection is not only truth, it's beautiful, brilliant, lyrical and wise. And it inspires me to want to be a better man,…

Event Size.
I’m eager to serve the needs of your group so let’s have a conversation about the intersection of your groups’ plans and my specific speaking gift.

I’m from Rhode Island so no group is too small (or too large!).

Format.
I love to lead workshops and weekend retreats, as well as provide a keynote for a single event.

Fee.
I’ll work with any budget.

My Experience and Spiritual Life

What’s important for you to know about me before we start a conversation about speaking for your event?

I have over thirty years speaking and training in front of groups of every size. I’m a member of  AWSA (Advanced Writers and Speakers Association) (for Christian women) and am listed in the speaker directory for By Design ministries. I’ve written four books and I’ve authored an unsettling blog since 2008. My blog was listed as one of the top 100 Christian blogs in 2015.

I’ve followed Jesus since responding to an altar call at the end of a televised Billy Graham crusade in my early childhood.

I have degrees from Barrington Christian College (now merged with Gordon) in Psychology and Biblical Studies.

I’m a retired homeschool mom with a day job (working with families in crisis), mother of two grown children with families, and a husband (for twenty-nine years and counting).

My theology is conservative, biblical, and radical, but I deliver it with a fresh perspective that resonates with modern audiences.
