Experience God's Word in a New Way That Will Change the Way You Live

Speaker, writer, and artist, Kelly Brinkmann, uses stories, humor, and visual lessons that teach a deeper understanding of Jesus and his transformative work.

"Our students absolutely loved having Kelly share during chapel. Her pottery demonstration grabs your attention and her humble heart draws you in to what God is teaching you. Her lessons from pottery show you what it truly means to allow God to fully transform your life."
Steve Naglak
VP Student Life, St. Louis Christian College
"...You completely blew me away. Your presentations were some of the best I've seen in a women's event setting - or even in a retreat/ conference setting! Your dry humor was a hilight. I've heard many women say that you were amazing."
Lori Hancock
Director of Programming at High Hill Christian Camp
"Kelly is a gifted speaker full of grace, truth and love. She is real, passionate, honest and full of the Holy Spirit. God is using Kelly's message to help me let go and move on from some sexual trauma from 20 years ago! What a powerful message it was."
Melissa
Women's Event Participant
"Kelly is a very gifted speaker. She is easy to listen to and follow, she is engaging and she certainly connects to the audience. This weekend was packed with encouragement, hope and God's solid Word that we can apply in our lives. I loved it!"
Diane G

She has found her calling!"
Angie S.

"God is the Master Potter, we are his creation, but what I took most from your talk is that He makes use of ALL of us. There is nothing in me he can't use for His glory. No part of me is wasted, or useless to Him."
Lacey
Musician & Mama
"I loved you today! Thank you for all of your insight. You have changed many of our lives today."
Meg
Conference Participant
"Experiencing Kelly's teaching was such a breath of fresh air! She had my complete attention using clay, the wheel, the Word of God, and her own story to illustrate God's love for each one of us. Plus, she's so funny and relatable, it felt like talking to a friend over coffee. I can't wait to read her book when it's released!"

"Kelly's expertise in the word and the wheel were evident and a strength as she made points and expanded on those key truths. She is a vivid storyteller and, combined with the pottery making, the room was captivated and quiet as they leaned in to hear from her. It was excellent!"
