Thank you for your interest in having me speak at your women’s group, conference, or other event. I’m available to talk about a wide range of topics related to family life, motherhood, body image, eating disorders, beauty, femininity, and more – and all through the lens of Christianity. I am eager to work closely with event coordinators to create a customized speech that meets the needs of your specific audience. Please email me at kmwicker[at]gmail[dot]com to inquire about my availability and fees. I’m more than happy to provide references from people who have hired me for past events as well.

Kate Wicker’s down-to-earth, from-the-trenches, humor-filled presentation captivates, encourages, and inspires her audience. Wicker speaks from the heart, sharing real-life stories women especially can relate to and learn from, because they are their stories too. Her humble and yet joyful witness renews hope and encourages trust in God. As followers of Christ, we are called to be the light of the world, and Kate Wicker is an especially bright one.
-Danielle Bean, editor-in-chief of Catholic Digest and Faith & Family Live!
From beginning to end, working with Kate for the Behold Conference was a delight. Furthermore, the combination of her honesty and natural spunk made for a powerful and encouraging presentation. Since the conference, many women have shared that Kate’s personal testimony and message have brought them peace in their hearts. Her compassion, humor, friendliness, and love of Christ left a lasting impact on the hundreds of women who heard her speak. She did a beautiful job, and I highly recommend her.-Bonnie Engstrom, Associate Director for the 2012 Behold Catholic Women’s Conference
