Some of Christin’s Most Popular Topics Include:


Living Fearlessly [Facing Fear]

Imagine what your life could be without those anxious thoughts, nagging worries, and crippling fears. What if you could finally be the woman you were created to be? Christin Ditchfield knows what it is to be bound by fear – and to be set free. Sharing from her own personal experiences and the life-changing truths of Scripture, she will help you:

  • Recognize the stranglehold that fear can be and break free from its destructive power.
  • Identify your own unhealthy responses to fear and discover more effective strategies.
  • Find courage to face your fears head on and conquer them.
  • Experience for yourself the “the perfect love that casts out fear” and know true Peace.

Fear doesn’t have to hold you back; it can be the catalyst that propels you to a deeper faith and a more intimate relationship with God.

A Way With Words

As women, we play such vital roles in the lives of our friends and families, in our churches, our communities, our schools and workplaces. In our nation itself.  God has gifted us with great power and influence — and the way we use that influence most often is with our words. It’s been estimated that the average woman may speak as many as 50,000 words a day. Words that build up, words that tear down. Words that guide and encourage and teach. Words that control and manipulate and deceive.

How are the words you speak impacting others? And what do those words reveal about your heart? In this presentation, Christin Ditchfield shows you how to:

  • Learn to appreciate the influence God has given you — and carefully consider how you’re using it!
  • Discover the source of your words and address the problems there.
  • Grasp the key principles that will help you choose your words wisely and wield them well.

* Based on A Way With Words: What Women Should Know About the Power They Possess, and available as a single presentation or 2-4 session retreat. (For a multi-session retreat, topics can include the power of prayer, simple ways to share your faith, developing mentoring relationships — as these are all ways women use words!)


Is Your Well Running Dry?

Do you feel pulled in a million different directions? Are you weary and worn out? As you juggle your hectic schedule, is your devotional life the first thing to fall through the cracks? Finding time for your relationship with God can be a challenge, but nothing could be more vital! In this presentation, Christin shares how you can:

  • Identify obstacles to a meaningful devotional life.
  • Understand how your unique personality and temperament, your gifts and talents – as well as your roles and responsibilities in this season of  your life – shape the way you connect with God.
  • Discover dozens and dozens (and dozens!) of practical ways to revitalize your devotional life – to  refresh your spirit and renew your heart and mind.

Learn to draw water from the well that never runs dry!

* Available as a 2-4 session retreat


The Three Wise Women

Everyone knows about “The Three Wise Men,” but what about “The Three Wise Women” – Mary, Elizabeth, and Anna? Just as the Wise Men followed the Star, we can follow the shining examples of these women who lived lives “holy and pleasing to God.” Amidst all the hustle and bustle of the holiday, Christin Ditchfield reminds us to cherish the Reason for the Season. Maybe you’ve heard that Wise Men still seek Him. Wise Women still seek Him, too!

* Especially appropriate for Christmas Teas and Brunches, based on The Three Wise Women: A Christmas Reflection


For Such A Time As This

Do you ever wonder why you’re here – what your purpose is? Do you ever feel overwhelmed by your circumstances? Unequipped for the challenges you face?  The Bible assures us that God has a plan and a purpose for each one of us, in every situation. Christin Ditchfield shares essential principles from the story of Esther (and others) that will help you:

  • Recognize the call of God on your life, His purpose for you right now.
  • Identify the gifts and talents He’s given you; embrace the training and preparation.
  • Discover the resources God has made available to you and how to use them
  • Find your voice – learn how and when to speak up.

Along with Esther, you’ll see that you, too, have been chosen “for such a time as this.”
