Authentic and real.

That’s a common response about my speaking style. Below are responses from both secular and faith-based event coordinators. If you would like a referral about my speaking, feel free to contact me using the form at the bottom of the page.

I look forward to working with you!

Brenda presents from the heart and helps the listener feel drawn to her words and her stories. She addresses issues that are not always directly addressed in a faith-based community, but the sense of relief can literally be felt within the four walls surrounding the audience; like a burden is being lifted that she is speaking to the listener about these challenging, yet realistic concerns.

Brenda speaks with passion and poise; her words are delicately chosen yet boldly delivered. She is able to bring a group of people together in a way that helps build camaraderie and connection. The ways in which Brenda addresses the audience, through her personal stories, through Scripture, and through heart-felt prayer, leaves the attendees with a feeling of ownership and desire to help share in the passion she provokes through her speaking engagement.

It is not only clear to me through Brenda’s speaking but also through her writing and, more concretely, through the actions of her everyday life, that she has a hunger, a calling, and a purpose to share the knowledge she has accumulated with regards to children, families, care, and God’s everlasting love.

An educator to the core, Brenda is able to engage the audience, excite their senses to learning, and leave them feeling filled with new and usable information as well as filled with a sense of love and purpose. Not only does Brenda come through with giving the information that is necessary accurately, she also comes through with encouraging others to live out their purposes and be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ.”

Brenda spoke to our MOPS group and touched so many of our mothers with her honesty, humor, and love of Christ. I appreciated her inspiring story of God’s grace, love, and story of redemption for us all. Through her own struggles, Brenda gave us all hope and encouragement. We cannot wait to have her back again.

Brenda Yoder is a gifted communicator who truly connects with her audience. She is warm, engaging, and knowledgeable. That’s hard to beat.

Brenda spoke at our Women’s Ministry Event, and she shared a relevant message on Identity in Christ, encouraging women and equipping them with God’s word. Heartfelt and compassionate, Brenda strengthens the body of Christ through her personal examples and interactions with the audience, which leads to introspection and reflection. Highly recommend her!

Women's Ministry Leader, New Life Baptist Church, Greencastle, IN

My church had a one day women’s retreat and Brenda was our speaker.  Our Women’s Ministry Board were all in agreement that this was the best retreat we’ve had in the past few years.  Brenda brought Scripture alive to us and spoke Truth.  She has and is living what she is teaching.

When I met Brenda. I was immediately struck by her authenticity and transparency. While Brenda has accomplished a lot by the world’s standards, it is her willingness to let God’s light radiate out of her own brokenness, trials and hardships that makes her message beautiful.

I needed…to get encouraged and recharged. That process started listening to your talk. You helped reverse a train of stress that walk almost out of control. I hung on your words and clung to them in the week. You took my hand and lead me back into sight of the Holy Spirit. I am so grateful for your encouragement.
