Speaker - Melissa K. Norris


Melissa is very heartfelt and passionate about being spirit-led in all we do.” Charlotte Martin, Women’s Ministry, Concrete Assembly of God

Finding just the right speaker for your event ensures attendees leave lifted up, filled with inspiration, instead of leaving wishing they hadn’t wasted their time. I hope this page helps you get the information you need to make the best decision possible for your event.



Here’s what you can expect from me:

  1. Prompt, professional replies to your phone calls and email messages.
  2. A personal phone consultation with me prior to your event, so I can better understand how I can best serve you and your audience.
  3. An announcement about your event on my blog and social media channels. (This assumes that your event is open to the public and you want additional visibility for it.)
  4. A custom resource page, exclusively created for your attendees. It will include content for them to delve deeper into our topic on their own, links to books, articles, and other resources I believe will be helpful.
  5. A quick follow-up communication after the event, to make sure I met your expectations. (I also want to know how you think I can improve.)

Praise Him in the Storms

Life is full of hardships and God yearns to ease our pain into a time of praise. Hardships and suffering are inevitable this side of heaven. After enduring an ectopic (tubal) pregnancy, God taught Melissa He longed to heal her if she would let Him. When we are faced with hardships, we feel overwhelmed and alone. God doesn’t cause our hardships, but He uses them to reach us. If we allow Him, God can turn the worst of circumstances into a time of praise and healing.

Are You There God? It’s Me!

How do you know if the path you’re walking is the one God wants you on? Once we learn to hear and listen to the prompting of the Holy Spirit, we can begin to unfold the wonderful plan God has for our life. This session will help you to:

  • Learn how God speaks to us
  • Listen for His voice
  • Biblically sharpen your ears and heart to seek His path with a list of activities
“Melissa explains the role of the Holy Spirit in her life, so personally that hearts are touched. She also shares her fears, she is real.” Bonnie T.
