My Background


Several years ago, my role as Director of Development for the Miami Valley Women’s Center (a non-profit, pregnancy care center) provided valuable experience as I presented the ministry to small groups as well as to large congregations. It was exciting to deliver a message that brought help and hope to many people.

Since then, I’ve been privileged to speak to a variety of groups on numerous inspirational topics. I enjoy weaving personal examples into my presentations highlighting how God uses the ordinary to show Himself extraordinary.

A few frequently requested topics to consider for your event are listed below, as well as a brief description of each:

Life is stressful. So many things clamor for your attention. This enlightening presentation helps you prioritize what’s really important so you can regain balance and experience God’s peace.
Have you ever noticed a gap between your theology (what you say you believe) and your reality (how you live)? This encouraging message highlights important truths about you and your great God to help close that gap. Leave armed with the truth to live out what you believe!
Tired of what you are wearing? Maybe it’s time to clean out that closet – spiritually speaking! This inspiring message challenges you to put off some attitudes and actions that aren’t very becoming, and put on new ones that will make you beautiful. This is a makeover you don’t want to miss!
Do you navigate life as if you’re in control? When the tough stuff comes, how do you respond? This uplifting presentation reminds you of the One who IS in control. By the end of this message you will be ready to relinquish the driver’s seat, and step out in faith.
I would be happy to explore additional topics in order to meet the needs of your group.

“In each of the Life Lessons videos, Maria shares wisdom from Scripture as well as from her own life. Her sweet, gentle spirit presents truth in a way that makes me want to pour myself some coffee, grab my Bible and a pen and just hang with her a while. No doubt God is going to use Maria and these Life Lessons for great things.”Brianna Wasson

If you are looking to grow more in your spiritual life, you will find Maria’s Life Lessons very uplifting and spirit-filled! In this day and time, when everything is high-tech, you can be happy to share these online video devotionals with your friends and family!”Mindy Bush

“Thank you for putting these videos together. These short lessons are like a spiritual cup of coffee that you drink in the middle of the day to boost your energy for the rest of the day!”Samantha Voorhis
“Maria – I really enjoy your Life Lessons videos. As a “list maker,” your video, A Grocery List, really resonated with me about my attitude toward prayer. Thanks for the reminder and I’m trying to be more present in my conversations (prayers) with God which now start with thanksgiving.”Rhonda Gibby
“I’m a busy mom with 6 children. I was refreshed while listening to Life Lessons. These lessons are short yet packed with loads of encouragement.
