Cindi’s audience continually refers to her as:

  • Relevant – no matter what they’re going through she speaks to the issues they are dealing with.
  • Personable – With humor, transparency and the ability to share from her own weaknesses and failures, she relates to women of all ages from high school/college to retirement.
  • Powerful – Through principles and insights from God’s Word as well as her own story and other women’s transformational stories, Cindi challenges women to move beyond where they are now and experience powerful life change.

These are just a few of the most common responses Cindi receives after speaking

“I could relate to everything you were talking about. It’s as if you were talking straight to me.”

“I was challenged to start living differently by using the practical tools you provided at the retreat.”

“I could’ve listened to you talk all evening. Please come back every year.”


Cindi’s most requested presentations:

You Can be Drama Free

In this fun presentation, Cindi shows women practical ways to dial down the drama in their lives and respond appropriately to situations that would otherwise escalate.

Focusing on the Few Things That Matter

In this encouraging presentation, Cindi shows women how to increase their ability to identify and say “no” to busyness, learn how to slow down and spend more time with loved ones, maximize their peace and productivity, and discover new sources of endurance in the face of stress.


Through Scriptural insights and practical helps, Cindi shows women how to see God as the Only One who truly satisfies, develop a desperation for God and long for His healing touch, experience a new confidence through a proper understanding of God, and enjoy the blessing of investing in the lives of others.

Women on the Edge

Through personal stories and real-life accounts of biblical women, Cindi shows women they are not alone in their everyday frustrations that make them feel they’re going to go over the edge. She helps them shift their focus from self to God, trust their heavenly Father more with the things they cannot control, and enjoy the confidence that comes from a heart wholly surrendered to Him.

Discovering Your Dream

Cindi’s message helps women explore God’s specific design for their lives by helping them verbalize new dreams for the first time, resurrect lost dreams and see them to fruition, and connect their desires and natural abilities to God’s purpose for them.

The Role of a Lifetime

A woman tends to define her role in life by her responsibilities and relationships. Yet God sees her apart from what she does and has given her an irreplaceable role and a “red carpet” she hasn’t realized. This “Hollywood-themed” retreat or event stresses the amazing worth of a woman in God’s eyes and challenges her to see her potential to make a difference in this world.

Longings of a Woman’s Heart

Cindi looks at the longings of a woman’s heart, where she goes to satisfy those longings, and the kind of fulfillment only found in an intimate relationship with Christ. Includes practical ways to see God as your First Love.

When You’re Running on Empty

Cindi shows you how to finish your day feeling energized by your activities, rather than worn out by busyness. Presentation includes practical ways to implement good health habits that recharge your energy, and ways to avoid burnout by leaning on God for daily power.

Reflecting His Light

Is your life marked by the light you radiate toward others? It can be. In this inspiring talk, Cindi shares how you can look to God for your fulfillment, live in the light of His joy, and live like a child of the King.

Cindi also speaks on Inspiring Your Daughter (using material from her popular book, When a Mom Inspires Her Daughter), Worry-Free Parenting (from her book, 10 Secrets to Becoming a Worry-Free Mom); and Drawing Your Husband’s Heart Closer to Yours (from her books When a Woman Inspires Her Husband and 12 Ways to Experience More with Your Husband.)

‘Tis the Season to be Stress Free – In this upbeat presentation, Cindi speaks to the heart of every woman who finds herself busy and stressed over the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons by showing them practical ways to slow down and enter the holiday season with a focused heart.

Celebrate the Savior  – This encouraging message will help women appreciate the kind of friend they have in Jesus, discover God as the Father they might have never had, and experience freedom through God’s forgiveness and gift of eternal life

Hope for the Holidays – No matter what you – or someone you know – is going through, Cindi shares comfort from a wonderful story in God’s Word about how He hears your prayers, sees your tears, and is planning for your greater good, no matter what things might look like now.
