Despite her professional success, Ellie says her greatest role is being a Christ follower, wife to her test pilot husband and mom to their seven children.

      Ellie's keynotes are practical and applicable to Christian living. Col 3:17 is one of her life verses, "Whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus." Her retreats feature sessions on friendships, finances, faith and reaching out to our communities.
