Isn’t it selfish to want to embrace passion, purpose, and possibilities?
Permission was granted long ago.
You were created on purpose for a purpose.

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.

My world has been sifted. It’s been a painful shaking, an imposed surrender. All that I once held with a tight grip is no longer something I can cling to. Some of what I held dear has fallen through my hands. What remains is precious, their importance - elevated....
It’s always been true. I am not what I do. I am not the sum of what I check off on the to-do list. I’ve always believed that, even if sometimes I’ve not acted like it. And I am struggling to remember. Here in this time. Here in this space. I am not what I...
We might be five miles apart, next door, or 2500 miles away from each other. But you’re never far. Distance can’t change what the heart holds. Distance can’t dilute our determination to care for one another well. We will find a way. Distance cannot weaken...
The sun shines on my back while the moon's glow lights up my face. It is still daytime but the moon arrived early. I love it when the moon appears in the sky at the same time as the sun. It's two miracles at once. The sun to grow life. the moon to light up the...
“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.
