“The Family Why”
Are you wondering why your family is struggling to achieve its dreams? Are you asking yourself why your children are struggling so much to live amidst a culture orchestrated to counter everything you are teaching them? Are you wondering what that “missing ingredient” is that can put your marriage and family back on the right path and be stronger than ever? If any of these questions apply to you, then this talk is for YOU! In this talk we will “keep it real” and look at why the most important question to unite your family and make you a formidable force in transforming the modern culture is: “What is my family’s why?”. From the intimacy of prayer into the concrete world of disciplined, actionable steps, we will discuss how goals are critical to living a life of purpose and conviction and why your family “why” will help lead us to our ultimate end of perfect union with God.
“The WHoly Family”
Have you ever wondered if there is a “Catholic” way to live, to eat, to exercise, to nurture and care for our bodies?  In this talk Chantal will dive into the keys of wholistic living with a Catholic and biblical perspective. Learn about a lifestyle that is all-encompassing and oriented to helping us achieve optimal health and vitality, so as to live to the full and have energy left over to serve others and prosper the mission of the Church.  Discover tips on healthy eating, essential oil use for supporting the body, doable fitness steps and the “Catholicness” behind them all.
“Daughter, Sister, Wife, Mother, Friend: The Spiritual Heart of Woman”
What is in the heart of every woman? Insecurity? Vanity? Lack of self-worth? Fear of being used? Fear of being strong? Self-pity? Fear of not being “Facebookable”? These false identities seem to overwhelm many women today and for those that are not lost in negative pitfalls, they are often confused by the whims of the world that are always swaying like the wind to whatever is the popularized version of woman.  In this talk Chantal will share her own struggles and victories as a woman. She will reflect on what true devotion to Mary calls forth from women and how servant leadership is the innate gift of women.  She will share insights into prayer and daily devotion that will empower women to take heart and embrace their true “feminine genius.”
