Proclaiming the Satisfaction that Only GOD Can Bring.
"For He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness.” -- Psalm 107:9
After years of striving to please God, Karen Foster learned how to let God satisfy her heart. Now she wants other women to know the satisfaction that only God can bring.
Combining passion with humor, her talks are based on Biblical principles and practical application. Karen serves as a retreat and special events speaker to women of all ages and denominations.
The sessions are about 45 minutes in length for a retreat (3 or 4 sessions). Or they can be combined and condensed for a one-day conference under a given theme.
Current Speech Themes
Title: Feeding a Hungry Soul
Whether you want more of God, or you’re caught up in the Christian lifestyle of “doing instead of becoming,” Karen encourages women to go beyond Biblical head knowledge and apply Biblical principles such as:
Title: There’s Rest in the Middle of Wrestling Life
“For we walk by faith, not by sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:7
Session 1: Resting in the Person of Jesus Christ
Ready to jump off the treadmill of a "works-oriented" Christian lifestyle? It begins with knowing God’s character and who we are in Christ.
Session 2: Resting in God’s Presence
Too busy to sit at God’s feet? To the degree that we seek God, we’ll find Him. Learn the value of coming before God with an empty heart fully submitted and ready to learn.
Session 3: Resting in our Purpose
Struggle to know God’s daily will? God’s ultimate purpose for life will show you how to respond to the circumstances in life.
Session 4: Resting in God’s Promises
Paralyzed by a regret-filled past, or the road of “what ifs?” Experience the power of prayer, and resting in God’s promises when nothing in life appears promising.
Title: Would you like some Bread with that Whine?
Exodus 17:3 John 6:41-48
If you weren’t allowed to grumble, would you have anything to say by the end of the day? Even when we guard our lips, our thoughts are bombarded with the media’s “breaking news” and dooms-day prophets. It’s enough to make a woman whine, “Is there any good news?”
Title: Joy in the Journey
Hebrews 12:1,2 and John 15:11
We are called to run the race with endurance, but how do we experience joy along the way? And how did Jesus endure the cross with joy?
Title: Let the Mentoring Begin
"I wish I had a Loretta." That's what women say when they learn I have a Christian mentor. Faced with busy lives and isolation, women are hungry for relationship. They want someone who's been there to help navigate them through the maze of life.
Eavesdrop on seven years of intimate conversation between Loretta and myself as we learned to apply Biblical principles to our lives. See how mentoring is a responsibility and a privilege in the body of believers.
Title: Another You
"Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: 'What? You too? I thought I was the only one.' " --C.S. Lewis
Discover how to be a great friend and find a woman friend who is a SAFE place. Learn about the four attributes of true friendship so you can find another you.
"In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you." 1 Thessalonians 5:18
When's the last time you gave thanks for nothing?
To the degree we're thankful, even when life isn't going our way, reveals the climate of our hearts.
Learn how giving thanks in ALL things, benefits our health, and aligns our hearts to the will of God.
"Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days" Psalms 90:14
If you need a speaker for your special event, I'd love to share the satisfaction that comes from knowing God. Feel free to contact me for more information.
