Arlette paints life with stunning brushstrokes whether she is designing marketing pieces for an impressive list of clients or using her creative gifts for the ministry God has entrusted to her. His glory is on stunning display through her teaching, her storytelling, her podcasting, and even through her great sense of humor which causes audiences everywhere to warmly embrace her. Not surprising that she was voted Woman of the Year in 2017 by Hugh's News.
She is passionate about God's creation, and many of her heartwarming narratives are captured in the pages of her first book (to be released soon), Bluebirds & Friends. She is now working on her second release: Joys of the Not-So-Perfect Woman. Few would have so much fun telling on themselves as she does in the pages of her latest project.
Others who have heard her speak say such things as "She is a great communicator, always making me laugh even if I've heard the stories before." Another woman shares, "At our recent event, Arlette shared that God is calling us to an irrational level of trust and obedience. She told stories about obeying God when it required doing things she didn't really want to do! Our multi-generational group of women were laughing out loud!"
If you asked Arlette to articulate her passion, she would be quick to answer. "I want to encourage and inspire others to let their faith in God take wing and soar to the heights for which we are all destined." This passion is realized every time she takes the stage as she inspires others to take faith-strengthening action. Her experiences as a wife, mother, grandmother, friend, and business owner make her relevant, real, and unforgettable. People can remember her stories years down the road.
She has been married to her husband, Lavon, a chemist, for 53 years. She refers to him as her 'knight in shining armor.' They are both the proud parents of two children and thirteen grandchildren.
"Arlette Revells has been a dear friend of mine for 17 years. She is truly a Renaissance Woman. She plays the piano, sings, writes, and is a graphic artist by profession. What I enjoy most about Arlette is her storytelling gift. She is a great communicator, always making me laugh even if I've heard the stories before. I recommend Arlette as an outstanding Christian leader, a great communicator, and as a dynamic speaker."

"Arlette is an engaging speaker and anointed worship leader and pianist. I have heard her share wisdom multiple times over the last dozen years. Her joyful countenance and enthusiasm draw you into her presentations. Last week, after announcing, "God is calling us to an irrational level of trust and obedience," Arlette told stories about obeying God when it required doing things she didn't really want to do! Arlette had our multi-generational group of women laughing out loud! Her stories are real, poignant, and humorously shared. Arlette's gracious style inspires us to take faith-strengthening action. Her experiences as a wife, mother, grandmother, friend, and business owner make Arlette appealing to broad audiences."
"Arlette, a beautiful pianist who gently and effortlessly caresses the keyboard, is just as masterful when speaking from her heart. I don't think I could tire of listening to her voice. There is a cadence and a rhythm to each word which enables listeners to conjure the sound, as well as content, of her message long after conference end. Her talk was thought provoking, energetic and filled with humor. Her talk motivated us to see how GOD moves with specific intention, tailored individually, in each of our lives. Arlette is a delightful speaker!"
"Arlette will inspire you as she brings truth and humor into situations we all deal with on a daily basis. Arlette is an amazing storyteller, articulating personal events in her life in a way that opens your heart to God's constant goodness and guidance. When it's in regard to family or friends, difficult or delicate, Arlette beautifully relates her life events in an honest, heart-warming way. Her relationship with Father God is unmistakably intimate, which is conveyed in her life stories and leaves you feeling closer to the One who made you and knows everything about you."

"When Arlette speaks, she is so compelling in her delivery that I am drawn in in a way that has me on the edge of my seat. I love her humor that is woven in to her presentation. She is always gracious and ladylike in speaking of irritations or frustrations. Her topics are always authentic and inspirational! I love hearing Arlette speak and always want to hear more."
"I have known Arlette Revells for the past 16 years. When she speaks, she always has a noteworthy message, delivered with hilarious humor. One of the things I love about her is she cracks herself up when she speaks. You will hear joy and laughter coming from the audience as they hear her stories when she tells her tales. Her musical skills give praise and worship such impact. This has been the case over the last 16 years I have had the privilege of being a part of praise and worship services she has led."
