Thank you for visiting my speaking page! You'll find out my most-requested speaking topics, my schedule, and how to book me.

As an event planner, you have big responsibility to find the perfect speaker for your audience and community. I have been on the receiving end of a message feeling bored and distracted—I know how important words are and work hard to captivate any audience.

It is always a privilege and honor to be chosen as a speaker; I hope this page helps you decide whether or not I am the speaker for your event.

My heart

God has placed in me a burning desire to move hearts closer to His.

As an author, blogger, former co-church planter, divorcee, and speaker, I believe meeting each person in their most raw spaces is what will set us free to live fully. When we are each walking undoubtedly in the scandalous grace of Jesus, we can them help to set others free.

He has met me in unseen and hidden places of both grief and joy. Both. In each of these experiences, I hunger for more of Him.

There is a fire in my heart to help set captives free and move others closer to The Cross. I cannot and will not be quiet.

Natalie was warm, funny, and professional — the perfect fit for our audience. I would highly recommend her!
— Jeff Goins, Founder of The Tribe Conference
As the speaker for our Baccalaureate service, Natalie brought a depth of wisdom far beyond her years. The graduating class of 2015 will not soon forget the life lessons and experience she shared with them. Her message was relevant with great, practical life-application. She is a naturally engaging speaker. We would love to have her again.
— Violet Gott, Youth Pastor of Marcola Christian Church
