Hi, I’m Bethany.
And I’m glad you’re here.
If we had a chance to sit down to coffee
there’s a few things I would probably say to you.
And they are the same things I say to myself most every day…
Who you are right now and where you are right now is perhaps
right where you are supposed to be.
You might be nowhere near where you thought you would be
at this point in your life.
You might feel like you are stuck.
You may be waiting for an invitation to pursue what’s next for you.
You might be waiting for permission to
step into the space you’ve been given,
to use the voice you’ve been given.
What I would say next (to both of us) is that
Permission has been granted.
Pursue the life-giving passion that is in your heart.
(That’s why it’s in your heart.)
So start here.
Let’s journey together pursuing
take up the space we’ve been given –
with no apologies
Journeying with you,

This Month’s Permission slip
Below are two of my most popular topics. I can develop topics based around your specific event needs.
Be Who God Made You To Be
I enjoy sharing about my journey as a mother. I believe that as moms, our first job is to pursue God and all that he has for us. The way for me to be the best mom I can be is to pursue all that God has for me. Parenting is hard and it is even harder if we don’t take the time to understand who we are and pursue the passions and gifts that have been given to us.
Here is a brief sample of this talk.
Get Out of Neutral
Are you stuck in neutral? Do you want to change, to grow, but just can’t quite get moving? The truth is we need to pursue forward motion. It’s so easy to get comfortable and just stay where we are even while longing for new or next.
Bethany’s been there and will share how we end up in neutral and then walk us through how to pursue moving forward. Bethany will share that we have all the permission we need to grow, to move, and to pursue who we are made to be. Have you ever thought, “What am I waiting for?” This is for you!
Attendees will leave understanding that permission has been granted to pursue their next best step. It will become clear that often we stand in our own way. Attendees will learn what fuels their drive to get out of neutral and to keep moving forward from where they are, to where they want to be.

A thrill of hope caught me by surprise. I didn’t recognize it at first. It was a beautiful sunset, yes, but I’ve seen them before. But this one was unrelenting, full of saturated color in shades of ochre, violet, gold, magenta, crimson. It cycled through...read more
She decides between coffee or a small supply of the kids’ favorite cereal. It’s one or the other on her budget. The cereal wins because it is about more than just cereal. It’s a reminder of normalcy. It’s a reminder to the kids that she remembers. It is a small...read more
Bravery is not a guarantee. Bravery is not a trade for the outcome you desire. Bravery is just the next step you take. We don’t know what is around the corner but the next step must still be taken. It is an exercise in trust, but don’t forget - you’re in good...read more
The end of a full day leaves her with a slight headache, achy body, full heart, a few regrets, and a few wins --- and there’s still more to do. It’s one of those nights, when she doesn’t know whether to keep pushing through or call it enough. A bath sounds...read more
She prays, she studies, she writes. She steps into what she is made for. She leads others to pursue the heart of God. There may be some who think she should not speak, that she should go home, but she doesn’t mind. Let them talk. She doesn’t answer to them. She...read more
“Bethany has an eye for the exquisite in everyday life and her unique writing style shows it. It is at once poetry and prose—an imperfect blend of rhythm and reckless abandon of writing rules that works just perfectly. I predict she could be the Ann Voskamp of her millennial generation. I admire her thoughtful words. She always takes me on a little flight to see the extraordinary that she finds in the ordinary.”
~ Chris Moss, speaker and expert on bringing the generations together
Invite Bethany to Speak at your next event
I love speaking to moms with children of all ages. Whether it’s a MOPS meeting, women’s event or retreat, my goal is to help women live out their God-given heart passion no matter what stage of life they are in.
