Thank you for your interest in having me speak at one of your events or retreats. I am passionate about sharing the Word of God when I speak, making it both accessible and applicable to our lives. The topics I speak about are usually those that God has laid heavily enough on my heart that I have no choice but to plumb the depths of that topic with Him! These are a few of the topics I have spoken on recently:
My Identity is in Christ – God desires for us to find our identity in Christ, but often we assume false identities that lock us into an unhealthy image of God’s best for us. Together we will explore the fears and situations that have led us to take on our false identities and will learn some practical ways to break free from these patterns and stay free in Christ.
Designed for Another Kingdom: the journey from anxiety to trust to joy – How can we practice trust when everything within us tells us to worry instead? How can we experience joy in the anxiety producing seasons of life? We stay anchored in Philippians 4: 4-8 throughout this weekend retreat as we explore why God wants us to live in the place of joy rather than the place of anxiety.
Desires, Dreams, Calling – The question Jesus asks most frequently in the Gospels is, “What do you want me to do for you?” and it is the question He still asks of us today. But all too frequently we have silenced that question to answer more practical questions. But, what if our desires actually have everything to do with our calling? Drawing on stories from both the Old and New Testaments, and using guided reflection time, we will explore the intersection of our dreams and desires with our calling in God’s kingdom.
Please enjoy a few excerpts from a recent retreat:
“Be anxious for nothing” –
“Discovering Joy” –
“The Kingdom is at hand” –
“Joy is meant to be shared” –
“Bonnie O’Neil was the speaker at our annual women’s retreat in 2016. She is an engaging speaker who connects with her listeners in a real and practical way. She is also a good student of the Holy Scriptures and is able to explain the original meaning in context, then help the audience understand the relevancy of God’s words to our daily lives through moving and humorous illustrations. Her passion for sharing Jesus’ love is evident throughout her talks; she was a blessing to us!”
– Pastor Beverly Berry, Church of the Good Samaritan, Paoli, PA
“Bonnie is both a caring and an inspiring speaker. She delivered a message that resonated with our mixed group Leadership Team. Her personal stories and use of Scripture made a very meaningful connection with our group. I believe Bonnie has that uncanny ability to hear from God and to adapt her presentation to specific audiences. We were all inspired and challenged to a deeper walk with the Lord through her talks.
We were so grateful that Bonnie lead our Retreat Day and I highly recommend her to you. You will be re-energized, as we were, to follow the path that the Lord has put you on.”
– Bill Drennen, Executive Director, Alpha Mid-Atlantic
