How Can Dana Serve You?
“Pieces of Me” is Dana’s testimony of slipping into a season of sin despite her Christian upbringing. She describes how this sin left pieces of her soul strewn about; ending with the largest pieces, her unborn children, lost to the grievous choice of abortion. Dana shares how surrendering her life to Jesus and accepting His forgiveness put her many pieces back together again. She tells the story of God’s grace in her life in an evangelistic manner that explains the basics of the Gospel to unbelievers. Her usage of objects give visual meaning to forgiveness, righteousness, adoption in the royal family of God and wholeness, and captures the attention of young and old alike. God has used Dana’s loss to birth many new children into the kingdom of God at the conclusion of this testimony. Invite Dana to share “Pieces of Me” as she invites others to be made whole in Jesus.
“I just want to Flourish!” sighed an exasperated Dana as she prayed about finding her life’s purpose. Discovering her ultimate purpose seemed too confusing. She asked the Lord, “What does a flourishing life look like to You?” The Holy Spirit led Dana to 2 Peter 1:5-8 and whispered in her spirit, “Now THIS is what a flourishing life looks like!” These verses led to the ultimate purpose for all Christians; Christlikeness. A flourishing life is the abundant life. Dana’s teaching will help you understand the fullness and fun of flourishing. Discover how to “Flourish Under God’s Grace”. This topic can be presented in a single session or expanded to include 3-4 sessions for a full retreat.
“Marching in Victory: Praying Circles until you get Dizzy” is Dana’s experience of waiting over 10 years to see an otherwise normal, simple, something most everyone else has, prayer request finally filled. The fulfillment of the prayer was not as important as the lessons learned in the waiting and in the praying. Dana tells hilarious stories of the killing fields of insects, giving CPR to mice, and snake wrangling while living in “the dungeon”. She also tells of literally drawing prayer circles on the cement floors of her unfinished house and marching in victory around this unlived in home for those 10+ years, worshipping and waiting on God. Are you waiting on God to fulfill a dream? Have your dreams died? Do you even know what to do next, while you are waiting? Dana’s experience will encourage you to be “entwined with God” while you wait until the day that you too, march in victory.
Dana will also speak a "Word in due season" for shorter events.
