Love In a Lunchbox (Speaking Topic)
If you have children, you could be their primary source of encouragement and healthy self-esteem. Maybe you feel your time is limited because of work responsibilities. Maybe you are a single parent. No matter what your daily schedule, you can snatch a few seconds each day to encourage those most precious to you. And you can do it in a lunchbox.
For many years, my children carried a lunchbox or bag to school. At our house, it was a team effort – Dad fixed the lunch while I wrote the note. Each day they had a carefully prepared sandwich, fruit, maybe some chips, and a cookie. But the most important thing in the lunchbox was not the food. It was the note!
Entertaining stories emphasize the importance of encouraging your children (and others around you) whether in a lunchbox, on the bathroom mirror, in their sock drawer, or through other methods. Take home creative ideas for encouraging those you love.
Love Notes Make a Difference (Speaking Topic)
Time spent communicating with those you love is priceless. With simple thoughtful expressions, you can make them feel loved and appreciated any time of day.

Written notes, acts of kindness, phone calls, surprise gifts – these are all forms of “love notes” that offer encouragement and pleasure to your spouse, children, and friends. Tips are included for holidays, traveling, ordinary days, and involving others in love noting.
Love notes can be the fuel that ignites the fire of romance or the nuggets of encouragement that bring sunshine to an otherwise cloudy day.

Maintaining a Presence When You Are Not Present (Speaking Topic)
When our children pack up their rooms, load the car and head off to college, it’s easy to breathe a sigh of relief and feel like our parenting job is done. However, our college students need us just as much as ever; we just have to find creative ways to let them know we love them and still want to be a part of their lives.
Learn ways to say “I love you” and “I’m thinking about you” even though you may be miles away.
Display His Splendor (Speaking Topic)
Isaiah 61:3 calls us “a planting of the Lord for the display of His splendor.” But what exactly does that mean? And how can we allow God’s splendor to shine through us?
Enjoy examples from everyday life of how God’s splendor can be evident. What characteristics of God are others seeing on display in your life?
Evangelism in Your Own Backyard (Speaking Topic)
Often it is hardest to share Jesus with those closest to us. We don’t see our homes and neighborhoods as “mission fields.” But sometimes the field that is ripest with harvest is the one right under our noses.
