Speaking

For Women:

  • Live Lighter: Learn actionable, Biblical strategies for setting down the bags (and baggage!) God never asked you to carry. Go hands-free and step into the beauty of your calling. (Signature talk)
  • Go Get Your Life: Create a life defined by faith, freedom and the lost art of FUN! — we’ll recapture the spring in our step by looking at how scripture sets us free.
  • Cling to Christ in a Crazy World — a timely trip through John 15 reminds us of how abundant and good it is to get back to where we started.
  • Stand Strong Even When the Earth Moves — We’ll take a trip through 10 Old Testament instances in which God likens Himself to a rock, a fortress or a foundation. Beautiful results await for the woman ready to shift her weight onto God’s strong foundation.
  • Find Rest in a Go-Go-Go World — Look at how Jesus withdrew, prayed, and rested for clues on how and why rest is essential for health and ministry.

She lives in the Phoenix area with her husband of 27 years and their adorable puppy Pearl.

Expanded bio:

A journalist and marketer-turned-ministry leader, Laurie Davies has been writing since her advanced composition teacher told her in 1989 that she broke too many rules. Laurie worked as a journalist and marketing professional for 25 years before making the next, obvious career move—a leap into vocational ministry.

Now a lay counselor, author and speaker, Laurie helps women live “hands-free”—setting down the emotional baggage that God didn’t ask them to carry. Laurie has contributed to Guideposts, and Chicken Soup for the Soul and she also serves as lead editor on Shaunti Feldhahn’s Atlanta-based ministry team. Laurie lives in the Phoenix area with her husband of 27 years, Greg. Their adult son is (almost!) done with college and makes his home nearby. And their puppy Pearl also works her way (constantly and adorably) into the Davies’ family narrative.
