What People Are Saying About Shadia

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 though 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!

“Shadia captivated us! Her deep and thorough study into the life of Hagar coupled with her own story and engaging delivery gave us a clearer understanding of Hagar’s story. And in doing so, a better understanding of our own stories and encouragement to trust God even in the most despairing of times. Shadia is a lovely and authentic women of God!”
Debbie Kelly

Shadia’s heart for Christ and her vulnerability and honesty in sharing her story drew us in and reminded us of the redemptive and powerful love of God. In addition to being a powerful speaker, Shadia was an absolute joy to work with from our first contact all the way through the event. Having Shadia participate in your event will be an incredible blessing and will lead to hearts and lives being impacted for God’s glory!
