Speaking Topics

Finding Peace in the Midst of Grief's Unanswered Questions

When we lose someone we love, especially in an unexpected way, we are often left with more questions than answers: Why me? Why my loved one? What is God's purpose in this? How can this be part of God's plan? Kelsey experienced all of these when she lost her 13-year-old little sister. With a focus on God's word and without ignoring the pain of tragedy, Kelsey will walk beside you as she shares the truth and comfort of Scripture, finding hope even in the midst of unanswered questions.

Living Light in a Dark World

There is no doubt that we are living in a dark world full of struggles and hardships. As Christians, we are called to let our lights shine for the glory of God. Kelsey will inspire you to reflect the living light of Jesus through your prayers, your story, and your presence. She shares practical ways that your daily life can to point to Jesus. You’ll leave feeling ready to encourage and support the next generation of believers and those around you.

Fighting Anxiety with God’s Truth

“Do not be anxious about anything” can feel like an overwhelming task in a world full of so many reasons to worry. Being told not to be anxious doesn’t take the anxiety away. However, when we look at the Biblical reasons we have not to be anxious, we can fight our anxiety with God’s promises and faithfulness.

Learning to Walk with Jesus

Kelsey leads you through Holy Week, with a close eye on the disciples, learning how to walk every day with Jesus in a unique, personal relationship with Him.

Speaking Topics, Cont.

*Made in God’s Image

Sure, you know that you’ve been made in God’s image, but what does that really mean? And how does that affect the way you see yourself? Let’s explore the worldly ideas of self-love and self-image, dig deep to discover what it means to be made in God’s image, and discover how that impacts the way we see ourselves.


*Yes, Jesus Loves Me

How do we move from singing that sweet Sunday school song to understanding the depth of love God has for us? Because the Bible tells us so, we know of His love; in this session, we’ll study several verses to help us not only see God’s love but to walk away feeling that love we know about and learn how to rely on it in our daily lives.


*Your Presence Means There Is Purpose

Purpose. It feels like such an enormous word, doesn’t it? We spend so much of our lives searching for it. But what if God wants you to know there is purpose simply in your presence? He has work for you to do, right where you are. Together, we’ll examine the feelings that prevent us from feeling purposeful and contrast them with the more powerful Word of God.

*Can be delivered as three consecutive sessions or individually.


Kelsey was a speaker at a Christian women's conference I attended. In addition to the wonderful content and practical approach, her warm and welcoming style made us feel like we were speaking with a friend. Her love for God and others is evident in every word she says. 

-Sandra S. 

Kelsey is a gifted speaker, particularly in helping women process God's purpose for their lives and sharing practical steps to fulfilling that purpose. 

-Paige P.

Kelsey speaks from a deep well of His word and guidance and her heart. Her gift to encourage and teach brought me hope when I felt completely defeated. She speaks to you, not at you because she genuinely cares about each person in the room. When I was at a conference she spoke at, I left feeling like I heard from the Lord through her words.
