Presentation Titles & Descriptions

Five Improvements Everyone Can Make By Noon

No matter where you are in your life, relationships, and career, these five simple tips can be the jet fuel that launches you to the next level. Improve emotional health and find freedom to be all you can be. 

Writing Essentials You Have to Know

Win editors and influence publishers. To write like a professional, you need to know what the professionals know. Learn the essential trade secrets that spell the difference for a professional manuscript including manuscript format, structure, self-editing techniques, and focus for your target audience.

Links in God’s Chain of Compassion
All human beings experience pain. Whether a crisis spells danger or opportunity often depends on how we respond. And how we respond often depends on what type of support we receive. When there are no adequate words, how can we enCOURAGE those around us who experience crisis in their lives?
Rahab’s Prescription for Renewed Life

Left to ourselves, the consequences of our sins will affect generation after generation. But God in His mercy, steps in. Whether you come from a dysfunctional, rejecting earthly heritage or healthy family relationships, God invites you to be adopted into His family. Break the chains of the past. Embrace abundance today. Rest secure in a promising heritage for future generations.

Real Beauty
What is real beauty? Is it perfect teeth, a good hair day, and a Barbie figure? Sure, it’s nice to look nice. But true beauty begins far deeper and radiates out. Even if you’ve come to the metallic age of life, sporting silver in your hair, gold in your teeth, and lead in your rear end, you can be stunningly beautiful.

Spend it Forward
Our lives are to be spent. Not to be saved. Each of us decides how we will invest our life. Are you living on purpose? Do you have a plan? Today is an opportune time to take stock and invest your life in ways that will outlive you.

What Kind of Friend Are You?
Do you have healthy friendships? What does a healthy friendship look like? If you long to have deep relationships and be an enCOURAGEment to others, this message is for you.

What To Do When You Don’t Want To Go To Church
Why should you give up a perfectly good Sunday to go to church? "There are two things we cannot do alone. One is to be married and the other is to be a Christian," said Paul Tournier. We come to church to connect and belong. In the process of connecting and belonging in our local congregation, we get vulnerable. Sometimes we get shot, not in the foot, but in the heart. What is the role of the church in our lives?

Let Yourself Go
Are you at a crossroad in your life? Life has a startling way of taking an unexpected turn leaving us confused, insecure, and vulnerable. Begin writing on the blank page of this chapter of your life. Embrace your new beginning.

A Garment of Praise
Shed the spirit of heaviness and embrace the garment of praise. Here are the quick, easy steps to turn your life around.

Live Free From Fear
Fear paralyzes, chokes, cripples, and suffocates. If you'd do more in life were it not that you're afraid, join PeggySue and learn to find freedom from the stranglehold of fear.

Embrace a Life of Peace
Overwhelmed? Frazzled? Burdened? Running like a hamster on a wheel and getting just as far? PeggySue invites you to quiet your spirit and receive rest from the Source.

Got Abundance and Joy?
God intended for us to have abundance. Now! Today! PeggySue shares the tools to help you receive, embrace, and daily live in the Lord's abundance and joy. It's His gift to you.
