Is Kelly Swanson?
Hi, I'm Kelly. It's nice to
Who am I? I'm a motivational speaker who can't seem to motivate myself to get off the couch and
go to the gym. I empower people to be
more than they think they can be - andoften second-guess myself at every turn.
I'm a horrible housekeeper - I only clean the parts of my house that people see - from the street. I'm a wife who actually asked her charming
prince if he could please stop making that breathing noise. I'm a mother of a seven-year-old, and up until
last year I thought chocolate was a food group and that you didn't need to
floss until you got your real teeth. I
run my own business and work out of my house - so on casual Fridays I show up
I call myself a Christian,
and yet instead of spending hours in devotion, I spend hours wondering what
happens to their tattoos when big people lose weight. You are sitting beside me singing and praising
in church - and I am still wondering if I'm supposed to be sitting down or
standing up - if I should kneel, or throw up my hands.
I know I'm a child of God,
created in His image - and still I sometimes look at you to define me. I know that Jesus paid the price - and yet
some days I still try to earn my way in. I have felt the healing power of His grace and
forgiveness -and in the same breath I have turned around and judged. I know how the story ends. I know that I will stand on the side of
victory! And yet still I worry about the
future. I know that He loves me, and
that He is right here. It's just that
sometimes I forget. So, Hi, I'm Kelly.
And this is who I am.
And still He uses me. Still He includes me. Still He takes all the broken pieces and
messes of my life - and uses them to make something beautiful that brings Him
Sometimes I stand before Him
with arms outstretched - crying out in frustration - saying, "I can't do
this on my own!" And He smiles and
says, "You don't have to. That's why I gave you the Holy Spirit."
And some days I ask for His
forgiveness for the mess I made that day. And I tell him that I have more questions than
answers. But that this I can say with
every fiber of my being - I STILL BELIEVE.
And He whispers in my ear,
"That is enough."
"I am enough."
"He is enough."
And I believe Him. Not because of who I am. But because of who He is.
So to Him be the glory.
So, Hi, I'm Kelly Swanson. It's nice to meet you. And this is who I am. Welcome to my life - mess and all. I thought about cleaning it up for you - putting
on the "face." But I'm tired
of putting on a face. And I think if we
are to impact others, we have to take off the "face" and show the
real us. Because life is messy. Even if you are a Christian. Especially if you are a Christian.
So, welcome to my life. I can't promise to say the right thing. I can't promise that I will get the message
right. I can't promise that I will be
the best you've ever seen. I can't
promise that your life will be changed. I
can only promise this:
I will show up - the real me.
I will try to move out of His
way and let His message ring through the mess of my message.
I will show you the Jesus I
love and how He carries me through the dark.
I will encourage you to stand
up and stick out for your faith.
I will show you how much He
And I will pray - that you
will seek Him. That you will find Him. And that He will guide your path - not me.
I promise to give it
everything I've got.
LAUGHING THE WHOLE WAY . . .
I'm Kelly Swanson. It's nice to meet you.
Testimonials . . .
Wow ... what a Friday evening! Lady, you knocked it out of the park!!! I enjoyed your message, and the ladies that keep talking about it have confirmed that you were the right choice. Thank you so much for giving us this opportunity to get to know your heart, for what you shared and how you shared it. You are gifted by God with your outstanding message and I am here to tell you to go for it and don't look back. I think all our churches would enjoy having you speak and there are tons of women out there that need to hear from you. I have had baby Chrisitans all the way up to the more mature ones and everything in the middle tell me how much they enjoyed you. Hope your family got to have a little fun time too; your hubby Bill and won Wilbur were both a delight. Thanks again and hope this finds you able to get a little rest from your trip. Please use me as a reference if you need one because I will sing your praises!

Girl - the comments about how God used you and how much fun you are have been off the hook!! Some people saying it was THE best night of their life! And I know personally of one major miracle answer to prayer in one family between mother/daughter-in-law. Thank you is not enough. We are SO blessed by your ministry and talent.
South Palm Community Church
Lake Worth, Florida
Motivational Speaker Kelly Swanson was our guest speaker for Women's Equality Day at Fort Jackson, SC, on August 13, 2012. Everybody loved her! She is very funny and entertaining, and has such a positive message to share with people. The audience consisted of military soldiers, men and women, and civilian employees of Fort Jackson. She is a "perfect fit" for any event. If anyone needs a testimonial about Ms. Swanson, please contact me.
We truly enjoyed having Kelly speak at our Power of the Purse event! There was never a dull moment, and everyone enjoyed the show! It is difficult to find a speaker that everyone will enjoy when you have hundreds of people gathered together, but everyone had only positive comments about Kelly and truly loved her! Thanks again, Kelly! We appreciate it!
Power Of Purse Event Committee
I want to thank you for the most wonderful job that you did for Columbus Regional at Spirit Girls Night Out. From beginning to end, you flat out delivered! Your willingness to work before the event (even en route to our city) with our media partners was awesome, and your media segments generated excitement about our event. What is truly noteworthy about you is that you not only commanded the stage during your performance, but you personally appeared and interacted with our audience during the event. Many of the women who attended the event commented on your wonderfully witty and personable manner. You warmed their hearts and inspired them before the performance even began! Your presentation of "Who Hijacked My Fairytale" had a truly raw and honest quality that was endearing and motivating. It was when the hands of many of the audience were raised and swaying, that I knew you had pulled on some heartstrings and touched some lives. The occasional "amens" after your "bless your hearts" and "I'm just sayings" only added to the inspirational and revival like atmosphere you created. Thank you again for sharing your stories with our audience and giving our event a fairy-tale ending.

I wanted to express to you my sincere appreciation for your assistance at our recent Stand Up and Stick Out event. Your contribution made it a complete success. We all enjoyed visiting "Pride's Hollow" and enjoyed meeting some of its citizens. I was pleased to see our team's planning efforts come together with your presentation. We received excellent feedback and many found your message to be motivating and inspiring. Much of what you shared in your message related indirectly to Swiss Re's core values of Client Centricity, Agility, Team Spirit, Passion to Perform, and Integrity. ...(Click here to read the letter in its entirety.)

Before too much time passed after our Liberty Convention, I wanted to send you my sincere thanks. You hit the mark on every front with our group and you connected with people in a way that validated their best selves. More than that, you challenged them to embrace their inner quirk. I think a lot of people left looking at what they may have formerly perceived to be the inner oddities a little differently: as a source of strength and a part of the unique dance that life has called them to perform. And I've already watched people "dancing" that dance with a lot more gusto and fervor than ever before. Thank you again for your strong contribution.

Participants commented that you were "Excellent!", "Very motivational" and your presentation was a "Great start to the day!"
Sarah L. Kaminski
Associate Director, Ohio Assisted Living Association
Kelly Swanson provided an uplifting, motivating and humorous keynote for our statewide Conference that was exceptionally well received.

"Funny," "fantastic," "truly unforgettable": these are only a few of the many rave reviews conference attendees shared about Kelly Swanson, a session and closing speaker at our 2009 Bakersfield Women's Conference. Kelly quickly endeared herself to everyone with her hilarious storytelling, down-to-earth delivery, and caring attitude. Attendees couldn't get enough of her. ... A versatile performer capable of adapting to small and large crowds, Kelly easily engaged her audience from her first words. ... If you are looking for a speaker who is approachable, energetic, and a quirky combination of folk wisdom and southern charm, Kelly is your girl. ... I highly recommend Kelly for your next function; you'll leave the event ready to take on the world!
Bakersfield Women's Conference
It was such a pleasure working with you for our recent Focus on You! Event. It was a huge success with our largest attendance ever! We had an enormous response to your program, with 490 ladies attending. We had to turn away 100 more due to capacity restraints. You were delightful with your southern charm, stories and characters. Our comment cards included so many positive comments about you and your wonderful program. It is truly a fun, hilarious program with a very positive message ... something we all need! I want to thank you for being so nice to work with. You made everything so easy.
Center for Women's Health
What a pleasure it was to have you with us for our Chamber Banquet. Your unique presentation style and vivid portrayal of characters was incredible.
Granville Chamber of Commerce
WOW!! Kelly was an amazing speaker and left everyone gasping for more. She has an uncanny ability to draw you into her stories as if you were there. She personalized her content so that her speech/performance not only related to our audience but our industry as a whole. Kelly leaves you with more than just a message, but with a renewed sense of energy. I would highly recommend Kelly Swanson to any group that is looking to learn, laugh, get energized and ready to take on the world!
We had so much fun with Kelly. Her storytelling and sense of humor are definitely gifts from God. It felt so good to laugh,
and the message that she brought about pleasing God instead of pleasing the world is still in my thoughts. I would
highly recommend her services. We can't wait to have her back.
In planning for our event, we have to be very careful as to who we bring in to be our guest speaker because they are representing our organization as well as themselves when speaking on our behalf. We try to bring in speakers who will appeal to a broad audience and not offend anyone. Kelly Swanson more than delivered! ... (Click here to read this testimonial in its entirety

I absolutely enjoyed every moment of the seminar and brunch yesterday. Your talk on adding humor to our workplace was very timely and I will incorporate more of it at my place of work. You are an excellent story teller and humorist. I hope you will honor us with your presence again. Thank you for a very enjoyable day.

Kelly is definitely one of my favorite people to work with. I will always remember when I started out in radio my second show I had Kelly on, her contribution that day put me on the map. I learned so much from her in just twenty minutes. She is witty funny sweet and insightful, she knows how to help people communicate more effectively thorough helping them understand how to install humor and story into their conversations. She has a special gift that benefits all that are exposed to her work. The world would be a better place if there were more Kellys.
Joseph F. Price
The Reaching Peak Radio Show
There I was, getting ready for one of the most important speeches of my career - a talk that in many ways could change my life forever. I had all the material needed to create a wonderful talk, but something was missing. I was spending too much time telling my points, rather than sharing my stories. I use to think that stories were for storytellers. Now I know that all great speakers ARE storytellers. Kelly has the ability to help you turn your points into magical story moments that not only send a message, but captures your audience's heart. Kelly Swanson is my secret weapon, and I wouldn't leave home without her!
After seeing your performance at the Ashe Arts Center last night, I have found myself remembering and chuckling throughout the day. Your performance looked seamless and flawless to me. I admired the way you engaged your audience and carried all of us to the height of hilarity, and then down to the poignancy of living, and then back to hilarity. Throughout the show, your authenticity and sincerity came through. Seeing you was a life-changing experience for me.
I would highly recommend Kelly for a very unique, side-slapping yet meaningful presentation. She will have your audience sitting on the ends of their seats hanging on her every word.
Wilkes Community College
The Film Advisory Board is pleased to announce that "Aunt Vyrnetta...and other stories from Cedar Grove CD" has received our Award of Excellence tribute. Kelly, to denote your phrase "southern stories of humor and grace" most certainly describes your thoroughly down home humor that exudes joyful chuckles in all of us. The magical way stories of Cedar Grove are spun captures your attention. Aunt Vyrnetta is storytelling entertainment at its best.
Film Advisory Board
Kelly Swanson is a gem among storytellers. Her unique style, her wonderful effervescence, and her skill in bringing memorable characters to life provide a storytelling experience that is like no other. She has charmed and enlightened myself and my college students with her sensitive and skillful storytelling and her substantive, informative workshops. Her enthusiasm is contagious. I defy anyone to come away from a session with Kelly and not feel transformed by the experience. We highly recommend her to anyone who wants to learn more about the art of storytelling by hearing her talk about it and by seeing her embody it.

Kelly is great! She opened the Pink Ribbon Luncheon for High Point Regional with a laugh and kept us in stitches throughout the performance. Kelly closed with a laugh and a good message to warm the heart. Her message really rings out that you can touch the hearts of so many, even the ones you don't know with a laugh or with a smile.

After seven years of producing The Best of Our State, it becomes increasingly difficult to find funny, unique and original storytellers. Kelly Swanson fit all three, and delighted attendees with her bright spirit and high energy.

You are a wonderful writer and an excellent presenter. You kept everyone on the edge of their seats wondering what was coming next.
Furniture Capital Chapter American Business Women's Association
Kelly Swanson's presentation at the National Speakers Association Annual Conference, 2009, was a highlight of the convention for me! Her sincerity and quick wit, balanced with an in-depth message, made this speaker unforgettable. As a professional humorist / motivational speaker myself, I fully appreciate Kelly's talent. This woman is outstanding!
Her "Down Home" style is warm and reminiscent of a female Mark Twain.
