Meet Our Speakers
Laurie Hoyt is a wife, mother, ordained pastor and frequent conference speaker with an authentic passion to see women walk in their purpose with freedom. Through her transparent and down to earth style, she communicates a message of hope and truth in the midst of painful circumstances which resonates with young and old, men and women alike. You will be challenged and encouraged!
In February of 2000 the landscape of her life was radically changed when her husband, Gary, and their son, Danny (15 at the time), were involved in a tragic automobile accident. Wonderfully, Danny experienced no serious injuries, but Gary was paralyzed from the armpits down, spending three months in the hospital following the accident. He has since been confined to a wheelchair as a quadriplegic. What could have embittered others in their marriage, family, ministry or relationship with God has proven to make Laurie and Gary, and their now two grown children, Danny and Anna, stronger. Together, they find power in the Holy Spirit and renewed promise in God’s Word.
Laurie and her husband, Gary, have been married for 36 years and in full time pastoral ministry for 35 years.
Dr. Jodi Detrick, author of The Jesus-Hearted Woman, is a certified personal leadership coach, a mentor, and an in-demand speaker who loves to talk to people at heart-level about things that matter most. For many years, she was a religion columnist for The Seattle Times, one of America’s leading newspapers. Jodi, who is an adjunct professor at Northwest University, lives with her husband, Don, in the rainy Pacific Northwest where lattes are always a good idea.
This is how Jodi describes herself in the “About Me” section on her Facebook page:
If you ask what I want to do for the rest of my life, here's what I’ll say: I want to keep having meaningful conversations with others about things that matter...I want to write in a way that compels minds to think, hearts to open, and spirits to stretch Godward on tiptoe. I want to resist the pull to play it safe, be moderate, & show only my best side. When I pray, "Be big in me, O God," I want to mean it. And one more thing...I want to drink good coffee and eat cupcakes with buttercream frosting whenever possible.
