What Do You Want To Talk About?
An Unexplainable Life
As we walk alongside Peter in the first twelve chapters of Acts, we discover a radically transformed man. In only fifty days Peter went from a timid man, full of fear and hiding in the shadows, to a courageous follower of Jesus. The change was unexplainable, a work of God in Peter’s heart and mind, because as those around him noted: Peter had been with Jesus. How did the change occur? And more importantly, can such a change occur within us—today, in the here and now?
*Experience a heart and mind transformation
*Discover the secret to silencing fear
*Tap into a daily source of power and inspiration
Step away for the weekend and meet Peter face to face and encounter the source of his power. Become challenged to grab hold of that power yourself, believing that God wants to do something in and through you that is unexplainable apart from him. How about it friend—are you game? (1-4 sessions)
Bible Study Kick-Off or Wrap-Up
If you’re completing an Unexplainable study as a group, start or finish with a visit from the author. At a kick-off session, Erica can present the biblical history behind a study topic, and what God personally taught her through the research and writing process. At a wrap-up session, she’ll review some takeaways and action steps, and answer your lingering questions. Either way, Erica will challenge your group to glean as much from Scripture as possible. One to four sessions.
*Lean closer into God with practical study tips
*Become equipped for future study and to practically walk out what you’ve already discovered
*Identify key areas where you are struggling to embrace and apply the truths learned
*Embark on a grand adventure with God utilizing the new knowledge you have acquired
Note: This session can combine with a leadership training workshop for Bible-study leaders. Erica can help you cast the vision for your meeting time, managing sessions as opportunities for personal transformation. She’ll also discuss how to effectively facilitate small-group time.
The Thrill of Hope!
We are all hoping for something: our marriage will make it, our kids will have friends, our bank account will grow, our test results will show we’re on the road to recovery. And we all put our hope in someone or something: our spouse, our job, our savings account, our BFF or our therapist. Hope produces a thrill because it fosters the belief that somehow, in some way, because of someone or something, life can become better than it is. But sometimes the person or thing we were hoping in disappoints us and the hope fades.
*Discover the secret to an eternal hope that will never disappoint
*Determine to live in the promise and power of God even when life disappoints
*Decide to believe the truth of God over the lies of our own perceptions
*Detour disappointment with a new path of trust that God, Who is our hope, is strong enough to anchor us in the midst of life’s storms
One to two sessions. Can be used for a Christmas Event.
It’s About Time
How do you live an intentional life, full of vitality? With an increasing to-do list, and so many distractions demanding time, how do you make the most of your days? And what are you supposed to be doing here, anyway?

Managing Mountaintops and Valleys
Moments on a spiritual high feel great, but what about when you’re in a valley? Whether you’re on a spiritual mountaintop or struggling in a dry valley, God wants to teach you. You’ll explore several examples in Scripture where God led His children from the mountaintop to the valley and then back up the mountain again. There is great promise and insight to gain, no matter where you travel on your life journey.

Studying Scripture for Life Change
Do you feel your group or individual study time is stuck in a rut? Do you follow a handful of favorite video teachers and you’ve exhausted their available resources? Or do you feel maybe it’s time to mix it up? Are you discouraged from spending continual time in Bible study, yet not observing spiritual growth? Do you wonder how to reach across generations to encourage different ages to commit to study time? Then it’s time to rock the boat and step into the waves!
*Renew the Bible’s place and purpose in our lives
*Recognize and implement Jesus’ teaching style resulting in greater impact
*Replace a “knowledge only” approach to your Bible study time to a place of growth and change

Your Roots & Your Reach
Sometimes things like fear, insecurity, rejection, and past hurts can take root in our heart stifling the life of God in us. Scripture provides us many examples of how this occurred in the lives of God’s people. However, God intends for us to flourish and thrive! So how do we dig out these harmful roots and begin to bear fruit that will last? God tells us in His letter to the Ephesians how to dig up those roots and replace them with life giving truth.
*Stop believing the lies that keep you from growing in your faith.
*Push past your history and begin living His Story.
*Tap into God’s design to strengthen, transform and empower your life.
*Experience a heart and mind transformation through the promises in God’s powerful Word!
Two to four sessions.
Taking Your Women’s Ministry to the Next Level
When planning, designing, revamping, or launching a women’s ministry, how do you decide which activities prove essential, and which do not? What does a balanced ministry require, and what fundamentals do you need to teach women? How do you ensure you’re teaching the full counsel of God’s Word? How do you effectively disciple women toward life change? This planning and brainstorming workshop can answer these questions, taking your women’s ministry to the next level. One to three sessions. For women’s ministry leaders.
Becoming A Transformational Writer
Everyone loves an inspirational story, but how do you move a reader to action? What’s the difference between invoking an emotional response and challenging your reader to step out and be the change? This session invites you, as the writer, to create characters and storylines that encourage your readers to go and do something with your story.
Be You, Bravely
This session reminds us of our uniqueness and how we are each specifically designed by God. Looking intently at Mary, the Mother of Jesus, we see how ill-equipped she seemed for the task set before her, yet God chose her nonetheless, to be the earthly mother of His Son. When we doubt our capabilities, wonder at our circumstances, and feel overwhelmed, Mary reminds us that it is our character that counts! This session works especially well during the Christmas season, but can be adapted for use all year.
