Elizabeth traveled to South Dakota to speak at our Ladies’ Retreat and the ladies in our church really connected with her down-to-earth approach to teaching God’s Word. I was personally challenged to grow spiritually. Elizabeth provided discussion questions for each one of her sessions — they were perfect for taking the content and personally applying it to my life. Many of the ladies left this retreat with a new friend in Elizabeth — just a testimony to her desire to connect with and love people.

Elizabeth’s passion for healthy marriages and strong families helps her communicate with deep insight and conviction. Her stories and authenticity really engaged our couples and brought much needed encouragement, and inspiration.

As a newly single mother of three, Elizabeth’s seminar was extremely helpful in helping me to reframe a mission statement for my family. Her practical ways on how to single-parent with Christ-centered values inspired me and gave me hope that I could lead my children in this way, which was a deep desire of mine.

We thoroughly enjoyed having Elizabeth speak to our MOPS group! Her time with us was the perfect blend of lessons from Scripture as well as encouragement stemming from her past experiences as a daughter, wife, and mother. She also kept us laughing! Elizabeth is not only a gifted author and speaker, but a relatable and thoughtful friend.

Elizabeth Oates is a “doer” of the Word. She has the unique ability to balance the many challenges of family, work, and church and to give others hope,  joy, and a purpose for living. If you need a speaker to really connect with your group, then Elizabeth is your lady to “Git ur Done!”
