More About Karen Porter


Hello, and welcome to my information page. I try to offer a wide variety of encouraging keynotes, workshops, and retreats. Each one is designed to make you laugh and to lift your spirits with the joy of the Lord, but laughter is only the beginning. We will go deeper with God and learn about his greatness and his special love and provision for each of us. He wants you to soar! And so do I.

I will work hard to make your event a total success. I'd love to help you plan and brainstorm for success. If you need ice breakers, small group ideas, decorating ideas, help with scheduling, marketing, or even budgets, let's talk. I would love to come to your area and sip a cuppa with you as we share our love for Christ and for women. 

Here's my formal bio in case you want to know more.

Carole Lewis, Director Emeritus

- I highly recommend Karen Porter as a speaking coach. We brought Karen in for a three day training of 13 of our First Place 4 Health Networking Leaders. We were amazed at the dramatic improvement each one experienced after Karen’s expert coaching. She is honest, yet kind and encouraging and our leaders all loved her.

Karen Porter worked with our team to develop our speeches and presentations. Her practical ideas for body language and eye contact forever changed the way we communicate. Karen’s keen insight into the content and structure of a speech helped our representatives develop powerful presentations. My only regret is that we didn’t hire a coach like Karen sooner.

Vicki Heath, National Director

My heart and faith was strengthen by Karen Porter when she shared "There is no giant, no lie, no adversary that the Name of the Lord cannot overcome". From a very familiar story comes a new and profound perspective on the fact that God fights for us. No bullies allowed any longer in my life! Karen's wit, transparency and obvious knowledge of the Word of God makes her one of my favorite writers and speakers of all time.
