Speaking Engagements

Looking for a speaker for your church, event, women’s group, mom’s group?

Like what you’ve been reading on Extravagant Hope? Wish you had someone inspiring to speak to your group? We can help!

We’re available for all kinds of events: retreats, break-out sessions, seminars, holiday gatherings, women’s gatherings, seniors’ gatherings…the possibilities are endless.

We’d love to come challenge and inspire you with a 30 minute or 60-minute presentation. We can also come for half day or full day retreats. We can even create something custom just for you! You can book one of us or all three of us (Cheryl, Lori, & Mendie). Let’s get the conversation started and see what we can do!



Thanks for contacting us! We look forward to getting back to you!

Hi there! We're Cheryl, Lori & Mendie, co-owners and writers of Extravagant Hope. We are moms (and a grandma), daughters, wives, teachers, and friends. We are ordinary women, just like you, who have experienced hard stuff in life, just like you. But we are also women who have incredible joy because Jesus has given us hope - and continues to give us hope - in the midst of even our toughest realities.   We are three women who have a dream of sharing that hope of Jesus with you. Join our Extravagant Hope Community and 10+ hope-filled freebies (prayer journal, memory verse cards, printable art and more) will be emailed straight to your inbox. Thanks for being here. :)

Yes, I want Freebies!
