Emmy Award-winning television host and motivational speaker Aurea McGarry is known as the Legacy Marker.
As a powerhouse keynote conference speaker, Aurea inspires and motivates faith-based and corporate audiences to discover and nurture their gifts and passions, becoming the best they can be, while creating a legacy that will benefit others and will survive and continue to inspire future generations.
Aurea is a business owner, ministry leader, television producer and host, personal coach, host of her own innovative annual Live Your Legacy Summit, and is recognized as a leader and record breaker among the top 1% in one of America's largest and most recognized direct sales organizations.
She has been featured on PBS, ION TV, The 700 Club, NBC, Fox News, Daytime, CBS, and other networks and television programs. In addition to her Emmy Award, Aurea has also been awarded three international Telly TV Awards and two Davey TV Awards.
She is currently in production and poised to launch her exciting new daytime talk show in Spring 2016 (check this web page for future updates with more details!).
Corporate and Christian organizations alike give Aurea rave reviews as keynote speaker at conferences, retreats, and events and meetings of all kinds, in front of many diverse audiences.
She applies successful business practices as well as powerful principles of her Christian faith to her high-energy presentations.
A self-proclaimed domestic abuse and cancer Sur-THRIVER, Aurea has authored several books, including "I Won't Survive - I'll Thrive!"
Aurea's life embodies her favorite scripture ... Give your works wholly to the Lord, and He will bless and propser them (Proverbs 16:3).
Here is a bit more of Aurea's personal story ...
Born and raised in New York City as an actor, singer, dancer, and professional white-face clown, she later moved south and became Mrs. US Beauty of Georgia 2003 and winner of the Most Inspirational Contestant Award.
From childhood to marriage, Aurea faced many enormous struggles, including the murder of her father, spouse abuse, divorce, single motherhood, and cancer.
Aurea gave her heart to the Lord in her early twenties when God instantly healed her of severe back pain from a childhood injury. That got her attention, captured her heart, and she's been His loyal servant ever since. (Not perfect, but loyal!)
Diagnosed with Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma on her birthday in 1999 and after surgery and grueling chemotherapy which almost killed her, the surgeon told Aurea she would never again speak above a faint whisper because of the removal of the left nerve to her vocal cord. Also removed were half her left lung, part of her right lung, the lining around her heart, and her Thymus gland, and half of her diaghragm was disconnected.
And yet ... Aurea McGarry has been cancer free since 2000 and can speak again despite the grim diagnosis.
Aurea McGarry is literally a walking, talking, dancing, thriving miracle.
While Aurea is blessed to share her message with millions via many television and radio guest spots as well as hosting her own programs, she always loves the opportunity stand in front of a live audience at conferences, whether at church banquets or city-wide arena conferences, sharing a message of hope, giving praise to God for His miracles and ever-present blessings. She inspires audiences (especially women and teens) to overcome any obstacles in order to live their BEST legacy and BELIEVE IN THEIR MIRACLES ... because God is no respecter of persons.
Beyond inspiring individuals to live their God-given LEGACY, she also motivates them to realize their dreams to heights they never thought possible ... because with God ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE TO THEM WHO BELIEVE AND AREA CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE. And Aurea doesn't stop there. She helps audience create their personalized action plans to achieve the most powerful legacy for their life!
