Why We Need Girlfriends
Through the framework of God's word, history, and her own unique style Frankie will take you on a journey into the lives of two incredible women, Elizabeth (mother of John the Baptist) and Mary (the mother of Jesus). Both were expecting a miracle child that would change the world. From their history defining friendship, one can understand why friendship is God-ordained. (An excellent retreat to connect the women in your church and to encourage mentoring
Extremely Made Over ... In Christ
The pages of God's word are filled with numerous stories of women who received the "ultimate makeover." Not by a plastic surgeon or fashion expert- but by Jesus, the One and Only. Their before and after stories are amazing because "makeovers" are God's specialty. In addition to the spiritual teaching Frankie shares some unique fashions tips and simple solutions to help godly women dress from the inside out.
Life Strategies for Women Who Do Too Much!
In this tale of two sisters from Bethany, we meet Martha the one who did too much and Mary the one that loved what she did. While there are many differences between these two women, their love for Jesus was obvious. However, one became so distracted by the demands of her ministry that she lost her focus. Excellent study to help women enjoy a balanced God-centered life).
Dear Abby - A Woman of Influence
Abigail was an ordinary woman that God used to do an extraordinary work. Through her obedience, graciousness, and remarkable faith, she was the vessel that God used to change history through the life of King David. God desires to use each of us, right where we are, and sometimes in places that we never dreamed of. (A powerful study to help women become a godly influence it today's world

A Daughter @ "Where 2-R Gathered" Conference
Langston Baptist Church, Conway, South Carolina
Thank you so much for coming this weekend. I can't tell you the number of ladies that came to me and said that they had received a word from God through you. Many of the ladies left saying that they are even more thankful for their friendships and are more willing to seek out relationships now that they have a more clear vision of what it is supposed to like. Thank you for being a vessel that God uses!! I hope you always know you have a home with us at Grace.
Grace Women's Ministry, Knoxville, Tennessee
I just heard you speak in Starke, Florida. It was great. I laughed and related to so much of what you said. And I cried at the end when I realized I have been basing my identity on the world's standards. I was not created to fit in with them, so why let myself get frustrated when I don't. I am 27, single, and desperately in love with the Lord Jesus Christ! My whole heart is to do his designed purpose for my life here on earth, but sometimes we loose focus. I wanted to thank you because tonight your ministry helped get that focus back. I appreciate you saying you would pray for me and want you to know I will be doing the same for you! You were so cute, and honestly I would be so excited if I looked like you at 50! Thank you for your obedience.
Thank you for sharing with us this weekend your wonderful stories and Bible study. I have truly been inspired by you this weekend. You are a true blessing to Mary's like me looking for Elizabeth's like you. God Bless You.
God, thank you for leading us to the speaker we needed. Frankie was awesome and Your Word and Truth went forth and many laughs were shared. You answered our prayers! Continue to bless her ministry! She was exactly what we needed.
North Side Community Church, Virginia
Frankie, I just wanted you to know how much this weekend meant to me and my friend. You have allowed us to take our friendship to a spiritual level. I hope that we can continue to grow.
What a special woman you are! We ALL just loved the retreat "why we need girlfriends"! You blessed each and every one of us.
Women's Ministry Director, Harrison Methodist Church
Dear Frankie ... You spoke at the MOPS meeting. I was so glad that I was there. You helped me to realize that my children can only be molded by me and that God is in control. God used you to speak to my heart and remind me that He has entrusted with me with the care of them. You are a great speaker and I will pray that you will touch other moms like you touched me.
Thanks so for coming and doing our Girls Night Out - you are a riot! You touched the hearts of many with your message. I will continue to pray for your ministry.
