“It was pure joy having Shannon Upton as our featured speaker at this year’s fall and spring conferences. We had nothing but great positive feedback! The women were greatly moved by the honesty and sincerity with which she shared her story and ministry message. Shannon is an amazing woman of God, a gift, and most importantly, a true believer in Jesus Christ.”

-Pattie Holley, Greater Ohio District Women’s Ministry Director of the Wesleyan Church


“When you meet Shannon, you’ve made a friend!  Her professional manner and bubbly personality will be evident as she enlightens your group with God’s truth. I would highly recommend her for any women’s event. We’ve had her come speak to us twice, and we can’t wait to have her back!”

 -Grace Graham, Minister of Preschool Education at First Baptist Church Texarkana Texas


“Shannon spoke to women ranging in age from their 30’s to their 80’s at our Spring Conference—what a success!  Shannon’s talk was inspirational and informative from start to finish: no awkward moments, well-placed humor, appealing and valuable universal truth with a wonderful incorporation of scripture. Shannon is a blessing for many.”

 -Anita Tiller, Ohio Child Conservation League


“We had a wonderful, God-filled retreat with Shannon as our speaker. The comments have been overwhelming about what a wonderful speaker she was. She shared her story with us in a God-filled testimony and then shared in two more sessions about how we can de-clutter spiritually so that we can be organized in our thoughts, hearts and homes! But more than that, she has a sweet spirit that was so easy to listen to and work with and I thank her for doing a superb job for our ladies!

-Chricket King, Women’s Retreat Coordinator in Madison, Indiana


“Shannon was our most-loved speaker from last year! I know I left motivated to clear out my clutter—both material and spiritual. I highly recommend that you invite Shannon to speak at your next women’s event- your group won’t be disappointed!”

 -Kimberly Davis, MOPS Coordinator in Powell, Ohio


“The preparation and heart Shannon puts into each presentation make her an ideal speaker with whom to work. At the June 2013 Spark Conference for central Ohio MOPs leaders, Shannon’s name was consistently brought up as the speaker to book!”

-Kate D’Agati, MOPS Coordinator in Marysville, Ohio


“Our event was a one day mini-conference where Shannon did three speaking sessions. The focus of the event was to give moms a day to refresh, relax and fellowship with other moms. Emphasis was placed on the Word in order to restore the joy (or provide endurance) of motherhood. Shannon did an amazing job and her sessions did exactly that! All of her sessions were well received as she is a very engaging and gifted speaker! We had approximately 75 mothers attend the event and administered an anonymous survey at the end. Our surveys all rated her highly, which is difficult to do with a variety of mothers in attendance! We highly recommend Shannon!

-Holly Everette, Moms’ Retreat Coordinator in Shelbyville, Indiana


“Shannon Upton makes the ladies of any group feel at ease, loved, and deeply valued.  She helps bring a heart of hope and unique refreshment to the ladies of any gathering. Book her!  You will be so blessed!”

-Nicole Doeringer, Hillside Chapel Women’s Ministries Director


I would love to hear more of her presentations.  This one was well worth it!  I heard nothing but wonderful comments from those who attended. One in particular: ‘I’m so glad I came. She changed my life.'”

-Marsha Sternad, First Presbyterian Church of London, OH


OK, why the slightly shameless self-promotion?

Because I want to come and speak at your women’s event!


I’m sharing these quotes with you because I love what I do.  I believe that God gave me a meaningful message and the ability to share it in an informative, entertaining, and inspiring way.  I’ll work hard to make your event spectacular—one the women of your church will talk about long after I’ve gone… but while the Holy Spirit is still at work.
