Shelly Wildman is a former college writing instructor who loves being a mom to three adult daughters. As a speaker, she is passionate about encouraging a generation of women who are prepared make a difference in their world. Weaving personal stories with biblical truth, Shelly inspires women to live out their God-given callings with joy. Shelly has spoken at several Chicago-area churches, in addition to women’s retreats, and writing conferences.

Topics include:

“First Ask Why” - Building strong families takes intentionality and a sense of purpose. Explore the importance of instilling biblical values in your children and be equipped to disciple a generation for Christ.

Teaching Kids About Kindness - Why is kindness important? How can we help foster kindness in a world that is growing increasingly unkind? This talk would be appropriate for a parents group or young moms gathering.

Scripture Study - Digging into God’s Word is one of Shelly's favorite things to do and one of the most important ways we grow our faith. She would love nothing more than to design a talk or retreat based on a specific passage of Scripture.
