Speaking Engagements

Meredith is available for speaking engagements, but primarily at the local level for now. As a former educator, she is comfortable in front of crowds, and would love to speak with your parenting, church, or civic group about her work regarding literacy, military life, or faith.

As a note moving forward, Meredith will only speak at groups that have clear policies for supporting and affirming LGBTQIA+ rights, practice egalitarian theology, and are inclusive of marginalized groups.

Please use the contact form for additional information.

2017 Bronze Winner, Column: Child Development and Parenting Issues. Parenting Media Association:

"An emphasis on reading is a wonderful example of embracing stewardship in an increasingly digital, and perhaps unhealthy, world. The rich material here is enhanced by writing that is crisp, clear and wise, and delivered through a thoughtful, authoritative voice. "
