Travels from Georgia
Annette Burrell's gracious spirit and subtle sense of humor keep audiences engaged. She has a gift of painting a picture that leaves audience members wondering if the message was meant specifically for them. Her message is always that of encouragement in times when life can seem discouraging. In everything, her message always points back to the One who gives hope -- her Savior Jesus Christ.
Annette had a conversion experience as a teenager but did not follow through with discipleship until later in life. She has a passion for mentoring and discipling younger women to have a daily walk with the Lord. She and her husband blended their families in 1994 and missed the mark on how to blend successfully. It wasn't until they both began reading daily devotionals and opening the Word in study that they realized God is the perfector and finisher of their faith. By being faithful to Him, He would be faithful to them.
As a conference speaker, Annette offers audiences biblical principles for facing life's challenges and offers take-aways that will help put into practice what she taught. In addition to speaking, Annette can also lead worship when invited to do both.
Annette is the founder and owner of ARB Bookwriters, a professional writing and speaking company. Her primary services include speaking, writing (blogging, articles, fiction and non-fiction, children's books, devotionals, and Bible studies) and song writing (for self and/or commission work).
Annette is the author of six books. "He Gave Me a Song" is the story of how God changed her life when He came to her in a series of dreams over the course of a week. "The Adventures of Danny Cricket" is a series of children's books. Children experience the science of insects, history, and the salvation story in these five books.
Annette is also a songwriter and artist. She makes her artwork, books, and music available to audiencs at all her speaking events.
Annette is open to incorporating your event's theme into her message(s) or developing a new message(s) specifically for your event theme.
The Healthy Way to Grow
Annette points audiences straight to the scriptures of I Corinthians and uses Paul's letters and teachings to show Christians how to grow in the knowledge of God. This message is great for churches and groups who are struggling to know what the next step is in growing young Christians.
This message compares superheroes from the big screen to those of the Old Testament. Annette uses audience participation to make the message "real" and "relatable." It also draws the audience in to see that Annette is on their level.
Growing Old Ain't for Sissies
Annette has experienced what it's like to add medical specialist to her list of doctors. She has a few more wrinkles, more gray hairs, and a few more pounds since retiring in 2013. But she has chosen to embrace it and enjoy the ride. She starts a list to share with her daughters what her mother didn't share with her. All is revealed in "Growing Old Ain't for Sissies."
Colored Lighted, White Lights, Spot Lights
CHRISTMAS MESSAGE ... Annette spent so much time trying to put her mark on decorating for Christmas that she missed the real light. While she includes the story of how her blended family learned to navigate the holidays, her message helps every women to "find the light."
I've Told You a Hundred Times ...
Most women can relate to Annette's making the point through sharing personal experiences with her husband, children, sister, etc., that we all have that nature in us to do what we are told not to do. There are always consequences. Beginning with the Fall, Anette entwines the Adam and Eve story into her presentation.
