* Surviving the Wait--what to do when you stuck in the midst of the meantime

* Overcoming the fear of inadequacy or rejection

* The Real Secret to Making It through Life (practicing forgiveness and gratitude)

What Folks Say about Ginger's Speaking:

"We invited Ginger to be speaker for our annual state-wide women's retreat. We told her our theme and gave her the freedom to speak as she felt God leading her. The ladies loved her from the beginning. Ginger is the kind of leader one hopes to have for these occasions: one who interacts with the ladies individually and in group activities. The messages were truly God-inspired and timely, speaking to the needs of the women. Ginger spoke with authority and inserted humor and personal experiences. We had a great time together. I highly recommend her as a speaker for any size group."

--Lois Linamen, Florida 

I had the privilege to learn from Ginger at a recent writers conference. She was organized and generous in sharing her wealth of knowledge. Her authenticity, wit, and kind demeanor created a safe and inviting environment. Ginger engaged students with stimulating dialogue, delightful humor, relatable illustrations, and excellent hands-on exercises. She offered honest and helpful feedback, as well as thoughtful encouragement. This teacher makes you forget to keep an eye on the clock!
