Workshops for Christian Women's Retreats

All are 45 minutes. Small group questions, personal reflection questions, etc. available on request:


Reasons for Hope

Hope is the least talked about of the "faith, hope, and love." What reasons do Christians have to be hopeful? What grounds do we have? What are the benefits of nurturing a hopeful heart?

Guarding our Hope

Our hope is assaulted many ways: from within and without. How do we avoid quenching our hope? How can we guard and build hearts full of hope and confidence in God? How do we encourage others to grow more hopeful?

Kuhl's Bio

A former public school teacher, I thought my teaching career was over when my children were born! After homeschooling a bright, learning disabled son for grades 4 to 12, I now enjoy writing, speaking, teaching and consulting. I enjoy reading, traveling, hiking, and good conversation with friends.

God's mercy transforms and blesses my life daily. My husband and I are members of New Hope Presbyterian Church in Fairfax, VA, where he is a ruling elder. We have two terrific grown children, and three grandchildren.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Kathy Kuhl and other workshop leaders and speakers. Furthermore, my desire is to help homeschool workshop leaders and speakers develop relationships with more convention planners and audiences. May your efforts be for the glory of Christ and the strengthening of His saints.
