Christian Speaking Ministry

Christie Miller’s love of the Word and her love of the Lord  inspire FRESH LOOK THINKING!®

     Christie “speaks” reality with humor and honesty while pouring  into her audiences the how-to’s of turning positive corners in their lives and personal relationships…..all centered in Jesus Christ as the gracious giver of wisdom, truth, and change.   
       The Lord has walked (and even run) through some very challenging times with Christie, and each lesson has drawn her nearer to His heart and purposes.   She was called to speak 15 years ago, and she said, “Okay, Lord …as long as you give me something of worth to say to people in this broken world.”  God has been faithful.  He continues to give her truths from the Word and life for each group to which she speaks!           As a conservative, evangelical Christian of 45 years, Christie brings the love of the Lord to her audiences in a gentle and profound way centered on the Word!   She’s walks what she talks., and has a passion for her sisters and brothers in the Lord.  


"I am willing to travel hours  to hear her speak!"

"Get ready to laugh

and to receive a challenge!"

"Never a dull moment.....I was at the end of my seat with her practical stories

and applications."

"She's effective.

I love her style of humor!"

"I could listen to her

for hours. "

"She's so makes

 you want to get real!"

"She's gone through confusion and victory in finding out who she is!!"

"She's in touch with the practical realities of a busy woman's life!"

"She got me laughing, crying, and then learning!"

"She's a ‘get real’ type of woman. Not just emotional fan-fare. She gives it straight."


"Christie is a woman of

truth and wisdom."

"Her heart for her audiences and

her passion for her faith is inspirational."

"She's in touch with truth.  Best retreat  I've ever been to,

and I had given

up on women's retreats."

"Not a superficial bone in this woman's body!!  How refreshing!"

"Her passion for life and her  Lord is dynamite!

She's motivating… making you want to give life, love,

and relationships another try!"

He Delights in Us!!

In this new retreat topic, Christie speaks from Psalms 18:19, "He rescues us because He delights in us."   He rescues us with great delight, like the good shepherd......from ourselves, from difficult relationships, from harm, and from situations that are coming against us, but His rescue is not always what we might imagine.  This is a three to four part retreat topic that hits on God’s  practical and delightful intervention into our lives!
