Speaking: Rekindling the Flame

With over 20 years of church experience as a Youth Pastor’s Wife, working with teens, women and churches, Jennifer is passionate about topics close to a woman's heart. Women who hear Jennifer speak come away impassioned to love their God more, rekindle the romance in their marriages, eager to leave a legacy to their children, and to further impact their sphere of influence.

With years of church staff experience, and an active coordinator and member of women’s ministries, experienced in co-facilitating women’s and couples’ retreats and in leading women’s Bible studies, Sunday Schools, and small groups, Jennifer loves to share with women. She speaks often at MOPS groups, women’s banquets, Sunday Schools, retreats, camps, and more. Jennifer has been married for 21 years and has three children.

Usually speaking 15-20 times a year, Jennifer balances speaking events with the joys of home and family too. Check her availability by emailing: douganemail@gmail.com for women’s events,  MOPS groups, conferences, homeschooling co-ops, or weekend retreats.

Testimonials from Group Leaders:

 "We decided that you were our best speaker that year!" L.M.

"Everyone enjoyed your talk so much that we'd like to ask you back to speak to our group next year. ... It's just good to know that there is someone who has the knowledge and passion to talk on this subject - and someone whom everyone agreed we'd like to ask back to speak again. I'll be in touch!" D.S.

"She connects with the ladies, and seemed very comfortable and natural. Her smile and countenance reflected her genuine care for them and the presence of the Lord in her life." S.M.


"Thanks especially for the investment of time you made with the women. Your availability and transparency makes you approachable. Your love for the Word and obvious intentionality of putting it into practice makes you wise. I look forward to serving with you again." L.A.
