Young Women and Youth

I love talking to the youth! I do not charge a fee to speak to church groups, but I would appreciate accommodations, gas, or plane fare if it is outside of the Utah Valley area. Due to schedule overload, I am currently accepting ONLY stake events. For best choice of date, please have your stake leaders contact me as early as possible. Some stakes have specific rules about inviting people outside the stake, so please check your guidelines before contacting me.
Young Women - Our divine destiny, using my picture book Daughter of a King. You won't need anything for this presentation except a screen I can use with my laptop and projector, a podium, a microphone, an opening song, prayers, and refreshments. This presentation is fast-moving and contains a lot of laughs, but the overall focus is spiritual and inspiring. I also stress the importance of looking (modesty) and acting like a princess. You may want to have related activities or a special handout. Please see the link for additional ideas and song recommendations.
Young Women camps - Jump start your young women's camp by scheduling me to come to your stake before the big event. This works particularly well if your camp has a similar theme (princesses, divine worth, etc.). Because this presentation works so much better in a chapel setting and because of the time involved in travel, I no longer do these presentations during the camp week itself. (Sorry!)
Literacy for all groups - An enthusiastic approach to literacy (about 40 minutes plus question and answer). I will bring five other LDS authors and we will take turns discussing the following topics: the literary and spiritual impact of children seeing parents read, the importance of reading to children, how reading affects our families and society, the statistics of literacy, what the prophets say about the subject, how to encourage your children to read the scriptures, personal development through literacy, and LDS books and the current market. At the end we will open for questions and stay as long as there is interest. You will need an opening song, prayers, a long table for the authors, a microphone if we're in a large room, and refreshments to round out the night. (Please note that the literacy presentations are specifically age-targeted. The presentation for adults is different from the presentation for youth. For combined age groups we use part of each presentation to make it interesting for everyone.)
Religious youth groups (boys and girls) - Serving others with our unique talents, our divine destiny, and the importance of being a good friend, using my picture book The Secret of the King. You will need a screen for my projector, a podium and microphone, prayers, and an opening song. If you are sponsoring a youth conference, you may want to have a medieval/royal activity before or after my presentation that enhances their understanding of being royal children with both a divine birthright and the resulting responsibility.

Current availability: For evening and weekend engagements, I usually schedule at least three to six months in advance, but sometimes I can work you in before that, depending on need and location. I schedule up to a year in advance, so schedule early to get the dates you want. Please use this form to schedule, or you can also e-mail me.
