There are many ways to include my sisters in bible study, prayer, coffee chats, and care of our bodies. The combination of uplifting music, a positive and challenging message, and a little moving is a great fit for a retreat, conference or convention. Expect authenticity, enthusiasm and excellence with my experience in worship and concert settings for groups of 10 to 4,000. I share original and familiar songs, scripture, teaching, testimony, and bold witness stories!
My retreats include quality music, biblical teaching, discussion, and fun centered around a theme. Morning, full day or two day gatherings.
Much of my writing is put to melody, though I've also shared ramblings as dramas, short devotionals, articles, and blogs which have been published in the "Relevant Christian Magazine", "Lutheran Women's Quarterly", "Holy Hen House Magazine" and "Be Still and Know" devotional (Deb Burma, CPH 2021). Blessed to be song leader for the Lutheran Women's Missionary League's (LWML) national convention in Albuquerque, NM, and for various district conventions in IA, WI, NY, MI, IL, FL and TX. Led music for my first Women's retreat cruise "Extravagant Love" with EO Christian Travel in February 2019, with another scheduled for January 2022.
"Wendysue was great as our "flight attendant". Her music was powerful, easy to learn and sing, and her message still has me making connections with people to share our 'Pilot'. I remembered her witness ideas on a recent trip - am being my BOLD!" Tracey G, Cedar Park, TX

Difficult to love yourself and others? Tough to receive love - lavishly?

Life is like flight! We've little control over routing, turbulence, or lost luggage. Through music and teaching, humor and discussion (over zoom), we'll train to TRUST the Pilot on the journey, use the Oxygen mask and Seat belt, and prepare ourselves and others for the final gate. Zooms or in person sessions include music, discussion and practicing our short testimony. Buckle up for a wild ride in the powerful hands of the One who made the skies we fly!
