Ladies' Day Speakers

Alright, ladies! If you have gone up to Cindy Colley or Sheila Butt at PtP or some other event to ask them if they can do a Ladies' Day for you, you know they are booked for like the next 10 years!! So what do we do?? We just have to find someone else, right? Who do we get? There is not this huge arsenal of largely known women's speakers. So, in case you are struggling with trying to figure out who to call to do your next ladies' day, I just want to list a whole bunch of the lady speakers who came to Polishing the Pulpit and did an excellent job. These women would be great for Ladies' Days. 

You can either find them on Facebook or Google their congregation to contact them via their home congregation. I am not sure of this, but I bet you could even contact House to House, Heart to Heart to find out how to contact a lady if you cannot find her, since they are the ones who put on PtP. I was unable to hear everyone speak as many sessions overlap, and you have to choose which speaker you want to go to, but I will put stars next to my personal favorites that I have heard. If there isn't a star, it doesn't mean they are not good-- I just didn't get to hear everyone.

I am the author of several books including Mom:PhD and four Precious Moments books. My blog is visited by over 10,000 unique visitors each month. I have spoken at women's events for almost 20 years and I will gladly provide references.I live in southern Kentucky but I am willing to travel where you are. I have been a member of the Church of Christ since I was 12 and my family attends Pleasant Hill Church of Christ where my husband is a deacon. I would love to speak with you about your event!

  3. Great blog, Amber! Two of my personal favorite ladies' speakers are:
    1. Tami Roberts- Parker church of Christ- Parker, CO
    2. Jodie Duke- Mt. Juliet church of Christ- Mt. Juliet, CO

  4. Hey Amber! I am a fairly young (33 yrs.) ha! preacher's wife from MS and If you would like to add three more speakers to the MS list, I know of at least three:

    Theresa Hampton - Siwell Rd. church of Christ - Jackson, MS
    Virginia Hamblin - Lake Harbour Rd. church of Christ - Ridgeland, MS
    Bettye Choate - Winona church of Christ - Winona, MS

  5. Sorry! My mistake: Lake Harbour Drive (not Rd.) church of Christ

  6. Dotty Barco, Cary Church of Christ, Cary, NC is phenomenal.

  7. I would like to be included as a speaker. I live in Benton Arkansas, about 15 miles south of Little Rock and worship at Northside church of Christ. I am a Christian psychologist, author, and retired college teacher and family therapist.
