KEYNOTES & WORKSHOPS
DISCOVER YOUR CALLING
Too many Christians go through life feeling like there’s something missing. They feel unfulfilled and lack joy and purpose. Unfortunately, too many Christians also get caught up in the rat race of the world, chasing after worldly success and looking for happiness in all the wrong places. As someone who knows from personal experience what it’s like to “have it all” and then suddenly lose it, Lena helps you see that fulfillment does not come from earthly wealth or recognition, but rather from using your unique gifts and passions for the glory of God and the benefit of others. She shares about the process of discovering her own calling after God dramatically changed her priorities, and gives you several practical steps you can take to find your God-given calling in life.
FROM PAIN TO PURPOSE
When you’re going through a trial it can be hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel… Lena helps you see that light. She gives you specific steps to healing you can take that will help you move forward with your life after a painful trial or a season away from the Lord. She shares from her own experiences about how God brings beauty from the ashes and purpose from the pain… How He uses suffering to draw us closer to Him, to help us better empathize with others, and to mold us to become more like Jesus. As Lena explains, God uses trials as a way of preparing us for service – in fact, He often uses our deepest pain as the launching pad of our greatest calling. Lena herself is the perfect example of this, and she openly shares her story of success, failure, restoration, and new-found purpose.
MADLY IN LOVE WITH JESUS
Jesus demands our undivided love. We are to love Him more than we love any thing, person, or pursuit. Yet, in life, there are so many things that are constantly competing for our affections, which makes it all too easy to lose your fire for the Lord. “I can’t imagine anything more dreadful,” says Lena, “ than to stand before God at the end of your life and look back and realize you never really did much with eternal impact. That your priorities weren’t really any different than those of non-Christians.” To help you grow in usefulness to the Lord, Lena shows you how to identify your idols – all those things that are stealing your time and energy away from your First Love – and talks about how to fall back in love with Jesus. This, so that you can truly be salt and light in the world, and so that when it’s all said and done and you stand before your Creator, you will indeed be able to hear Him say to you, “Well done, good and faithful servant.”
GUARD YOUR HEART
As women we juggle a lot of balls. As wives, mothers, grandmothers, employees, business women, ministry leaders, volunteer workers (and the list goes on) we long for God to fill us with His peace, love and joy so we can be as effective as possible in His work, yet we struggle to carve out quality time with the Lord in our much-too-busy schedules. Using humor, personal stories, and illustrations from Scripture, Lena effectively demonstrates that if we will only learn to get our priorities straight, everything else will start to fall into place. As we guard our hearts by meditating on God’s Word, allowing it to change us, and as we humbly surrender our schedules to the Lord, we’re going to experience His supernatural power working through us, filling in where we’re lacking, and accomplishing more in our lives than we could ever think or imagine. “Guard Your Heart” is a three-part keynote presentation (total length is approx. three hours) which can be modified to fit in a one-hour slot if this better fits your needs.
RUNNING TO GRACE
Given the fact that all Christians have the Holy Spirit and therefore have all the power they need to heal from past hurts, conquer sinful habits, and grow in spiritual maturity, why is that so many believers still stay stuck? Lena argues that much of the answer to this important question lies in the approach each Christian takes to their own growth. As God’s children we know we are saved by grace, but too often we live as if we are still under the law: We go around feeling ashamed or condemned because we don’t “measure up”, we do things to try to “regain” God’s favor, or we rely on ourselves for strength. But healing and growth, as Lena points out, only comes when we turn away from our self-efforts and instead run to God and His grace. And grace is more than forgiveness. Grace is also God’s provision of various tools, resources, and people to help us along in our Christian walk. As God brings these support systems into our lives and we humbly respond to His provision, we can deal effectively with our hurts, sins, and struggles.
“Lena shares with a genuine transparency that was very inspiring to me. I found myself touched in ways I didn’t expect. Her story is raw and real. It left me encouraged by God’s power to change hearts. Lena is truly called to share God’s grace and transforming Word with women.”
(Lisa R., ‘Guard Your Heart’ conference attendee)
“I own an Internet company that meets annually for an international live event with hundreds of attendees, and I’ve hand-picked Lena to speak numerous times because she’s an effective communicator & platform speaker. I’ve been able to watch Lena build a speaking business, pursue her passions, and make an impact in literally thousands of people’s lives. Your event will be better when you decide to put Lena on your stage in front of your organization.”
