Ministry Topics:

Seeing Through the Lies: Unmasking the Myths Women Believe

Join Vonda on a hilarious journey through all things female as she searches for real truth in a half-truth world. From spider veins and webs of deceit to cartoon characters and feminist funnies, this message will help you recognize the lies and take joy in the light of His truth. You’ll laugh! You’ll cry! You won’t be the same!

Suitable for women and older teen girls

( From a single 60-minute presentation up to three 45-minute presentations).

Celebrating Womanhood: Bubbles to Beaus, Babies to Bedpans

Celebrating Womanhood—sounds kind of liberating, doesn’t it? Almost makes you want to build a big ol’ bonfire and burn a bra or two! But instead of burning bras, you’ll laugh out loud as this entertaining, multi-faceted program takes you on a humorous journey through each season of a woman’s life. In the midst of the laughter, Vonda turns to Scripture and reveals the truth—that God can use every woman, no matter her age.

Suitable for women and teen girls (60 minutes).

A Call to Holiness

How can we live a holy life while living in an unholy world? In this program, Vonda compares what the world has to offer with the message from our Lord to “be holy.” The world’s garbage is an unavoidable part of our daily lives, but we, as Christians, can’t allow that garbage into our hearts and minds. Vonda will teach you the Scripture’s Test Verse for Garbage, as well as practical steps for keeping the trash where it belongs—on the curb.

Suitable for women and teen girls (60 minutes).

Submission is Not a Four-Letter Word

Society teaches women that being submissive is not “politically correct;” that we should be strong and independent. As a strong-willed woman, Vonda confesses that the Lord took her kicking and screaming all the way to submission. But through that defiant struggle, she discovered the truth—that God’s plan has nothing to do with being weak. Join in the laughter and the tears as Vonda opens the Word and shares God’s vision for women and their families.

Great for any women’s event

(From a single 60-minute presentation up to three 45-minute presentations).

How to Raise Your Kids Without Raising the Roof

When your children were born, you wanted to shout from the roof-tops. Now you’re simply hoping your roof will survive! While carrying out our greatest parental priority—shepherding our children’s hearts to love the Lord—we must learn balance. Gentleness without authority won’t work, but neither will authority without gentleness. Vonda shares The Rod of David—A Psalmists’s Discipline and Four Basic Guidelines of Raising Children. You will leave equipped and encouraged as a parent.

Appropriate for mothers and fathers

(from a single 60-minute presentation up to three 45-minute presentations).

Blueprint for Prayer

Are your prayers becoming stale and repetitive? Do you feel that you’re in a one-way conversation with God, simply listing all the things you want Him to do? Then join Vonda on a journey through the prayers of Jesus. When did He pray? What did He pray about? As Vonda leads you to each stop along the journey, you’ll search your own heart and follow in the prayerful steps of Jesus. This presentation is a perfect conclusion to a weekend retreat.

(45 minutes)

Mary’s First Christmas

Has the busyness of the Christmas season gotten you down? Do you dread all the changes that come with that time of year? Mary’s first Christmas wasn’t quite what she had planned, either. After all, having a baby wasn’t on her to-do list at that time in her life! In this program, you’ll study the scriptures and learn how Mary enjoyed the special moments of Christmas. Appropriate for men and women of all ages.

(45 minutes)
