Living much of her life as a stressed-out SuperGal, Lori’s life was completely turned around when she met Jesus during a tragic storm. Defeated and broken, she had to lay down her overwhelming pride and face her lack of faith. Today, Lori is an inspirational speaker, singer, Bible teacher and author of her memoir, SuperGal vs. GOD. Through her experience, she speaks, with transparency and humor, to encourage women to surrender their struggles with their own SuperGal syndromes and find God’s abundant peace through His Word. She is endlessly grateful to a loving God who refused to give up on her. A God who is teaching her that her value to Him is in being and not doing.
Lori is the owner of an independent publishing company, Broken Shoe Press, and a member of the Advanced Writers and Speakers Association. She loves to sing, garden, and laugh in the chaos of her grandkids. Lori and her husband have five children, thirteen grandchildren, and enjoy living near Valley Forge, PA.

Michele has been a music ministry leader for over thirty years. Yet ten years ago, her life of faith deepened when a series of life events and hardships, led her to “get into and stay in the Word of God.” When she did, her eyes were opened and she received a hunger and thirst for God’s Word that she had never experienced before. Through time spent in the word of God each day, her life has been transformed and she has gained increasing love and commitment to her relationship with Jesus Christ. She is called to lead women to experience their own personal relationship with God and feed their soul through His Word. Michele believes daily prayer brings us into full communion with our Heavenly Father and provides the grace we need to go about our calling in the home, the workplace, the church, and community.
Stretchy pants … family gathered around the table with good food … coffee dates with her hubby … and cozy nights snuggled at home with those she loves … these are things that make Erin, well, Erin. Notorious for losing things (such as her cell phone), Erin can ALWAYS be seen dragging along a bag…or 4, as she hurries through her hectic days. Erin knows how easy it is to lose sight of our Heavenly Father in the chaos of life and how He is ALWAYS willing to allure us back to Him despite how much baggage we are carrying! She loves experiencing and sharing how God weaves Himself into every thread of our lives. She has a passion for lives to be shaped by the living Word of God. Her prayer is that she would be used by God to help others seek Him through healthy relationships that live out His truth, fostering forgiveness and grace.
Erin is a pastor’s wife, mother of her favorite 3 children & Children’s Ministry Director at Hope Community Church in Gilbertsville, Pennsylvania. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Bible & Elementary Education from Cairn University.
