Deanna is an engaging, passionate speaker who brings great hope and encouragement. Her love for Jesus–and people–shines through. Deanna has a gift of using her words, her home, and her creativity to make a difference to those who struggle. And, she shows us all how to do the same.
We always look forward to hearing Deanna speak! Deanna is so warm and personable. She has a way of relating to every age group…from children to seniors…through her personal stories and her sharing of scripture. Deanna is very engaging, but her message is for Jesus and her desire is always to help us walk closer to Him, to be the best person we can be. Her love for Christ and His people always shines through!
I am going to make sure to pass along your name to other groups here in the organization as a speaker. You did a fantastic job and people loved you!! You have a gift. I think you are an amazing person and it makes me happy to see your posts and it is so uplifting!

Deanna is a master storyteller and communicator. She engages you personally and makes you feel like you just spent time with a close friend. You’ll leave loved, encouraged and better.
Contracting Deanna as our keynote speaker for our 13th Annual Women in Philanthropy Luncheon was a great investment. As Deanna spoke you could feel the energy in the room ramp up with each story or antidote she shared. By the end of her speech, the confidence level of every woman in attendance was raised one notch. Everyone left the event knowing that they had the power to leave a lasting, positive impact upon their community, and they had the tools needed to start their own acts of kindness. Deanna’s address reinvigorated the Women in Philanthropy Luncheon, attendance is up and donations to the Women and Children Fund have increased. Mission accomplished!
