Invite Lisa to Speak
Lisa Brenninkmeyer founded Walking with Purpose to help women experience the transforming power of God's unconditional love. A convert to Catholicism, Lisa created her first Bible study in 2002 out of a desire to see Catholic women come to know Christ personally.

In 2012, Lisa was recognized by the Catholic Leadership Institute as a National Catholic Leader, and in 2014 and 2015, she presented at the Amazing Parish program’s national conferences. Lisa was also a presenter at the USCCB Convocation of Catholic Leaders in July 2017, and a speaker at two Fellowship of Catholic University Students (FOCUS) national events in 2018 and 2019. Lisa has been a guest on several EWTN shows and was a keynote speaker at two virtual Catholic conferences in 2021. Also during 2021, she spoke at Franciscan University's Applied Biblical Studies Conference and Defending the Faith Conference. Lisa has been a guest on a number of radio, television, and podcast shows as well.
Invite Mallory to Speak
Mallory Smyth joined Walking with Purpose out of a deep desire to help women come to know Christ personally through the transforming power of His Word. Mallory experienced a powerful conversion of heart in college when she came to know God personally through Scripture. Having worked with college students as a FOCUS missionary, and now in women's ministry, it is her dream to see Catholics fall deeply in love with God and grab hold of the joy offered in the Gospel. 

Mallory was a keynote speaker at the FOCUS Legacy conference in 2018 and a speaker at SEEK 2019 sponsored by FOCUS. Mallory was a guest on EWTN's "Life on the Rock" in 2019. In 2020 she was a speaker for the LUX virtual women's conference. Her book Rekindled won second place in the faith category for the Catholic Media Association Book awards. Mallory has also spoken at parishes around the country and has been a guest on a number of podcasts and radio shows. 
Invite Laura to Speak
Laura Phelps is a national speaker and writer. Her passion is fierce, her devotion to our Blessed Mother strong, and her message simple: you cannot outrun your cross so you might as well embrace it.

In her book, Victorious Secret: Everyday Battles And How To Win Them (2018, OSV), Laura shows women how to put on their spiritual armor, face the daily battle, and win.
