HAGAR’s story (Rediscovering the God Who Sees Me)
When life hurts, we feel betrayed and cry out one question: God, do You see me? The answer is yes! He is working behind the seen. In this series, your audience will:
- Witness the depths of God’s compassion through the eyes of a runaway slave
- Discover fascinating insights by diving deep into the story of Hagar
- Fall in love with Jesus all over again as they rediscover that even when life hurts, there is a “God Who Sees Me”
Based on Shadia’s Bible study “HAGAR: Rediscovering the God Who Sees Me.” Customized for your event; 1 to 7 sessions. Ideal for women’s retreats and events, single moms groups, Hagar Bible study launch/introduction, missions conferences and more.
Story of LEGION (Rediscovering the God Who Rescues Me)
Every human heart longs for paradise: a perfect world without death, pain, or sorrow. However, the world as we know it will never deliver; it cannot. The Bible tells us that, “the whole world is in the power of the evil one” (1 John 5:19). But Jesus came to change all of that … one person at a time. In this series, your audience will:
- Experience God’s relentless love through the story of a man known only by the name of the demons that tormented him
- Explore challenging questions such as:
- Why was God willing to risk rebellion and rejection in the Garden?
- Why would He allow His perfect creation to fall victim to Satan’s schemes?
- If God is good, why does He allow evil to exist?
- Rediscover how far our impassioned Savior will go in order to rescue one … lost … soul
Based on Shadia’s Bible study. “LEGION: Rediscovering the God Who Rescues Me.” Customized for your event; 1 to 6 sessions. This inspiring story is perfect for women’s retreats, missions and evangelism-themed events, and more.
Pregnancy Center Event Keynote / Sanctity of Life events
Once at risk for being aborted as her parents wrestled with an unplanned pregnancy, and then losing her own child to abortion at age 15, Shadia knows the heartache of abortion firsthand. As only God can, He has used her story to capture the hearts of audiences around the country as she shares, from personal experience, God’s love, faithfulness, and power of redemption.
In addition to being featured on the Human Coalition podcast, KFAX Radio, and elsewhere, Shadia’s story, which she shares in the small eBook, Nameless No More, serves as the foundation for her Bible study, Worthy of Love: A Journey of Hope and Healing After Abortion, (endorsed by Brian Fisher of Human Coalition, Georgette Forney, Co-Founder of Silent No More, and others).
Having served many years on the Board of Directors for RealOptions Pregnancy Medical Clinics, Shadia is passionate for speaking at pregnancy center fundraisers and other Sanctity of Life events.

Women's Pastor/Community Life Director, Sebastopol Christian Church, Sebastopol, CA
Shadia spoke at our Fall Women’s event and brought a fresh perspective on the life of HAGAR. Her compassion and sympathy for a woman who felt unseen by others, came through loud and clear as she shared from her own experiences of feeling ill-treated and unseen. Her passion and confidence in God seeing ALL of us as whole and loved and complete in Him was shared beautifully! We look forward to having her back!
