Need a speaker for your next event?


She’s funny and she’s animated, but most of all she’s a truth teller who yearns to bring people closer to the God of justice, peace and love. A former high school English teacher and non-profit outreach director, Cara holds a Masters of Theology (Fuller Seminary) and is now a writer and speaker. Her first book, The Color of Life, released with Zondervan in 2019.

With nearly twenty years of professional speaking experience to over two hundred unique audiences, Cara speaks to a wide range of people but especially loves filling the pulpit on a Sunday morning or sharing her heart over the weekend at a family camp. An Episcopalian with Evangelical roots, she’d love to share a short, ten-minute homily or a longer, forty-minute sermon. You do you, Church!

What kind of audience will connect?

Cara speaks to…

  • Church Gatherings, Conferences and Retreats. Be it around content from her book or a host of other topics, Cara loves extending her audience an invitation to the God of justice, peace and love. Many faith-based communities often choose to have her preach on a Sunday morning, then engage in conversation (with a brother or sister of color) around issues of justice, race and privilege soon thereafter.

  • Bookstores, Book Clubs & Community Events, including a myriad of ways The Color of Life can be engaged in your particular community!

  • Non-Profit and Other Faith-Based Organizations

  • Corporate Audiences

  • Women’s and Mother’s Groups

  • Middle School, High School and College Students
