Marybeth enjoys speaking to women-- whether addressing a group, leading a retreat or ministering one-on-one. She speaks with honesty and humor as she encourages women to draw closer to God and to never let go of His hand (Psalm 37:23-24). Her passion is to encourage women to be real with one another, to dig deep into what God has to say, and to pursue whatever He has called them to do with all of their hearts.
