Welcome to my speaking page!
Here you’ll find out more about me, speaking topics, and how to book me for your event or gathering.
A little bit about me
I have been married for 10 years to the love of my life, Tommy and we make our home in the Dallas/Forth Worth area of Texas. I am an author and creator of Intentional Today, a site dedicated to providing resources to help the newlywed wife draw closer to God and her husband.
I spent most of my employment years in the real estate industry where I rose from answering the phone to heading the department.
After 7 years in the corporate world, I left employment to start my own business; a clothing store and later a development consultancy.
In 2011 my husband and I moved to the United States from our native country of Kenya, Africa.
I have over ten years experience in ministry and I now dedicate my time to writing, teaching and mentoring.
Through my online platform, I challenge thousands of wives and husbands around the world to take personal responsibility and to be great grace-givers, as the key to great relationships.
I bring in my experience in leadership and passion for growth as I teach on marriage, relationships and purposeful living.

Below are some of the available topics.
My goal is to help you create the outcome you want; we can customize the topics to suit your specific goal.
- So you want a happy marriage?
My goal is to come alongside wives who feel that marriage is a little different than what they signed up for. I share from my experience, pointing them in the direction of grace and intentionality as I help them understand this beautiful institution they signed up for and how to make it beautiful. After the teaching, they will have practical tips and a deeper understanding on what it takes to create a strong relationship that glorifies God.
- Becoming more as a couple
Many couples tend to “settle” after a few years of marriage. They stop chasing dreams, stunt as individuals and seem to forget why God brought them together. But God wants married couples to become more, not less. Based on Ecclesiastes 4:9 “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor”, I help couples understand God’s desire for them and how to work together as one, not in competition but in unity.
2. Single life and relationships
I speak on a variety of topics to help the single person prepare for a committed lasting relationship.
3. Life and purpose
- Chasing your dream when it’s dark
Geared towards women, this teaching is for every woman who is chasing her dream and is determined to live a purpose-filled life. It’s not enough to dream big, not enough to want success, you have to understand what it takes and be ready to do it. It’s easy to chase your dream when the skies are blue but at some point in your pursuit, the skies will get dark and it’s what you do in the dark that determines if your dream will come to pass. In this talk and drawing from my own experience, I share key ingredients to achieving your dreams.
- The abundant life
God has a plan for everyone. But often we are surrounded and immersed in clutter and stuff, things that hinder us from becoming all He created us to be. In order to live the abundant life, He often has strip us and stretch us. In this talk, I share how God began to strip me of my clutter – from losing my dad, leaving a stable job and being jobless, starting a business, marriage and its adjustment, moving countries and starting afresh, following my dreams in a strange land. This talk is for every dreamer, every person who wants to be all God created them to become, every person who is tired of living a pseudo life and wants the real thing and is ready to do whatever it takes to be whole and successful in Christ.
- How to start an online Christian ministry
51% of the world’s population has access to the internet (2017 statistics.) That is 3.8 billion of the world’s population interconnected. Today, there are over 3.2 billion searches on Google search engine alone. People are turning to the internet for advice, information and guidance. There exist incredible opportunities for you and I to share our gifts with others and hopefully influence them to the kingdom of God! In this talk, I help women who feel called to start online ministries to get started and grow. We cover different subjects, from what ministry to start, to how to get it started, down to setting up the actual website. We talk about how to grow the ministry, the business side of things and how to create products that will help others. Since this is a practical hands-on workshop, the teaching is best presented over several sessions so women can work through the different material presented. But the teaching can also be broken down to specific topics depending on the needs of the women.
