Some people have important things to say. Others say things in a way that just hits home…Angela Howard does both. With wit, a warm sense of humor, and authenticity that disarms, Angela delivers God’s truth in relevant messages that speak to women right where they live. Her heart is passionate in pursuing God and focused on making a difference in those she touches. I heartily recommend Angela and her speaking ministry to those who want to hear a fresh word from the Lord delivered in a powerful, compelling way.

Are You Wrapped Up in Worry & Anxiety?
From My Heart
If you’re ready to get real about the imperfections of life and the power of God to transform our hearts, then I would love to be a part of your next event. My calling is simple: to share the hope of Jesus . While life is never what we expect it will be, we can count on a Savior whose love never changes.
As much as I love speaking, I am passionate about connecting through one on one discipleship. Because of that, I do my best to bring people together in authentic community at every event in which I serve. I commit to partner with you to fulfill your vision to teach, empower, equip, and inspire your group to become more fully devoted followers of Jesus. I am single-minded about offering the hope of God’s word to a broken world in need of the healing that only He can bring.
Whether Angela is behind the scenes or teaching the ladies from the stage, the goal is the same. Angela’s heart for women will amaze you! I appreciate her willingness to touch the lives of individual women on a personal basis. She is approachable and down to earth. She has the ability to make you laugh and cry in the same sentence!

My Most Requested Speaking Topics:
|Living a Life of Prayer: In 1 Thessalonians 5:17 Paul encourages us to: “Never stop praying.” Have you ever felt a little intimidated by this verse? It seems almost out of reach for ordinary lives that are full of demands, challenging circumstances, and unexpected interruptions. What if there’s a way to see prayer from a new perspective? In these exciting sessions we discover what “Living a Life of Prayer” is by looking through the eyes of Jesus and His disciples and understanding the nature and character of God.|
|Hope: When life is hard and people disappoint us how can we hold onto hope? Hebrews 6:19 tells us that “We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.” (NIV) We can be confident and know that despite our circumstances we have hope for tomorrow and for eternity. Without hope, where would we be? How could we keep going? This series of messages tackles various characteristics of hope found throughout scripture.|
|How to Love Your Crazy Family: Are you wondering how to love your crazy family without going crazy yourself? You’re not alone. Family relationships are rarely neat and tidy. Life amidst the messy complications of imperfect people living in an imperfect world leaves us weary and unsure of how we will love families with the genuine love of Jesus. If you’re tired of trying to love on your own, stop remember that Jesus redeems our lives, even through the crazy, painful times and has the power to transform us from the inside out.
•No Ordinary Marriage
“Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.”
1 Corinthians 13:13 (NLT)
|Awakening the Power of God: Have you ever felt like you accepted Christ as your Savior, but the rest of your life didn’t change all that much? Do you wonder if there’s more to being a Christ follower than attending church on Sundays and saying an occasional prayer? If so, it’s time for dive deep and finally understand what the Bible teaches about the power of God. The Lord wants to take each one of us into a deeper level of intimacy with Him through an awakening of power of God in our lives!|
|Are You Burned Out? Are you tired, worn-out, burned-out and ready to quit? You might be caught up in the epidemic of self-reliance. Our culture celebrates the self-made man and woman, and although there are many positives to ingenuity and hard work, we often go astray when we rely solely on ourselves to the exclusion of God and community. There is an alternative to living in this exhaustion and hopelessness. “For I have given rest to the weary and joy to the sorrowing.” Jeremiah 31:25 (NLT)|
|Living Your Strengths: What moves you? What inspires you to get out of bed in the morning? Each one of us comes from different backgrounds, different churches, and different families. We are all individuals that have unique passions in our lives. Why do we focus so much on our perceived weaknesses? What if living our strengths is really what God has always intended? “Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that…Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life.” Galatians 6:4-5 (MSG)|
|Identity by God: In a world where your identity is based on how you look and what others say—what would be like to be confident in your own God given identity? What does it mean to know who you are, know where you belong and know your purpose? This is identity by God. “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10 (NIV)|
|All Wrapped Up: What are you wrapped up in? Are you distracted with the worries of this life? Does fear tie you up in knots and distract you from what’s really important? Let’s get wrapped up in knowing Jesus so that we can give the world the best gift we’ve ever been given–His grace. “So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!” 2 Corinthians 5:20 (NLT)
*Can be given as a Christmas message.
|Leadership Team Retreat: Does your leadership team need a kick start to improve their collaboration and identify their strengths? If so, this team retreat is for you. We will take time to build trust, work through productive conflict, make lasting commitments for accountability and set goals for the future. (Customizable to the needs of your team.)|
