Peppi's messages for the heart come from her own true life experiences.
All of them include some humor and point audiences to Jesus.
FOR MULTIPLE SESSIONS:
Peppi recommends having a 45-50 minute message in the first session. Then, break for
snacks or a meal, returning for a full hour of pure hilarity, and a brief tie-in message at the end.
Select one of these messages for a session:
Joy for the Journey - Peppi's Captivating Testimony of Finding Freedom from Fear, to Joy for the Journey. (One Hour)
Joy for the Journeyis easily compatible with other topics and themes such as:
Resting in Grace, Trust, Living the Abundant Life, Following Jesus, The Sovereignty of God, Empowerment (according to scripture), A Surrendered Life, Knowing God's Word, Revival, The Fruit of the Spirit, Repentance, Spiritual Warfare, Suffering Well and others.
Resting in Grace - Do you remember the offering envelopes with the "check list"?:
☑Read My Bible Everyday
☑Studied My Lesson
☑Invited Someone to Church
Well, Peppi's desire to always have every box checked continued into adulthood:
☑Teach Sunday School
☑Serve on Committees
☑Sing on the Praise Team
☑Do Service Projects
☑Go on Mission Trips
yada, yada, yada.
She found herself always striving, always doing more and more and more to the point of sheer frustration. It wasn't until the Holy Spirit revealed to her that all the work of salvation was done on the cross that Peppi began to understand that God's grace is sufficient. The more she began to rest in that grace, the more her life filled with joy; and the more her soul was at peace. It was then that she noticed the desires of her heart (Psalm 37:4) changing to align with those of Christ. She was no longer living by the check list. Instead, out of gratitude and love for her Savior, her actions looked.....you'll never believe this....a lot like the check list! It's all about motives of the heart. Before, when she lived BY the check list out of obligation, she was in bondage, never satisfied that she was doing enough, always striving, yet never fulfilled. But grace destroys the check list! And in its place Jesus gives abundant life (John 10:10). This is a message of liberation for those who question their salvation, for those who wonder if they are doing enough and for those who wonder why they are in church every Sunday, yet have no joy. But mostly, this message is for those who believe they're okay because every box on their check list is checked.
Surrender - Complete Surrender Changed Peppi's Life & Gave Her Purpose - A Call, A Challenge to Trust & Follow. (One Hour)
Surrender is easily compatible with other topics and themes such as:
Living Life on Mission, God's Heart for the Nations, The Great Commission, Following Jesus, The Fruit of the Spirit, The Persecuted Church, Trust, Knowing God's Will for Your Life, Discipleship, Sharing Jesus with Muslims and others.
Do you already have a theme God has put on your heart for your group? Ask Peppi if she can speak to your theme.

Mama Knows Best
Recognize the women in your group with a fun time of comedy and encouragement. I’m booking dates now for comedy events to honor the mothers, grandmothers and aunts who have unselfishly given so much to raise us.
I’ll be adding to my routine more hilarious material on moms and grandmothers, sharing some of my own mom’s words of wisdom that shaped my morals, values and beliefs, and offering encouragement from God’s Word to those who are struggling. It will be a time of laughter, camaraderie, refreshing and joy.
Let’s talk about how we can honor the women in your congregation, ministry or group this year with a FUN event of comedy and blessing. Start the conversation here.
"Peppi’s comedy took our Annual Ladies’ Night Out at First Baptist Church of Richland to a new level of laughter. She has a unique style of comedy combined with singing and audience participation which is side-aching funny! Her material is timely, real and appropriate. Our women and guests enjoyed her so much. In addition to experiencing good, clean and funny comedy, Peppi is professional and respectful. She sincerely cares about her presentation and cares that her customer receives what they ask for...integrity. I highly recommend her ministry and look forward to laughing with her again. Thank you Peppi for the medicine to the soul! We love you!"

Peppi is funny. She's real. She has a great story to tell. You will not be disappointed.
J. Cook; Women's Ministry Director
FBC Snellville, GA
Peppi loves hearing big belly laughs from her sisters.
She brings messages for the heart of God's love, hope, grace, healing
and at times even a challenge. It would be her joy to bring to your group,
the temporary joy of laughter to introduce the eternal joy of knowing Jesus.
It's Where Faith and FUNny Meet!
Peppi's Two Current Tours for Women's Groups:
Peppi is a crowd favorite for women's banquets, conferences and retreats, and is frequently invited back for repeat events. Begin your weekend together with a full-blown comedy show. Walls will come down as your ladies relax and laugh with their sisters in Christ. Then, observe as hearts are more receptive to the Biblical truths & testimony presented at the end of her routine, or in the sessions that follow.
If you haven't quite got all the details figured out, and would like for Peppi to offer suggestions, she is happy to do that too. She considers herself a partner with event coordinators, and is only happy when your event is a success and God is honored. Whether you're planning a one-hour comedy show, a half-day women's conference or a weekend women's retreat, just know your ladies will find Peppi's comedy hilariously relatable, and her messages inspirational and real. Check out Peppi's message topics below. Women's events are Peppi's favorite!!
Finding Joy for the Journey
Peppi knows that one thing most women have in common is worry and fear. Fear of the known, fear of the unknown, fear of the what if's and the why not's. Fear of not getting what our hearts want the most. Fear of losing what our hearts hold most dear. Fear, Fear, FEAR!!
Fear kept Peppi a prisoner for over twenty years. But today she is FREE, and that fear has been replaced with peace and joy, which resulted in this ministry of comedy. Peppi would love the opportunity to share her story with the women in your group, and then, in a follow-up session, treat your ladies to this joy in action with a full-blown, interactive comedy show. Let's talk about your event today.
