It’s no secret that laughter heals. But many of us have missed that memo. While life may try and beat it out of us, it’s never too late to reclaim our joy! Join the tens of thousands of people I have helped to overcome adversity, embrace change, reduce stress, build relationships and inspire hope by harnessing the power of humor.



Laugh Your Way to Grace: The Power of Humor in Life, Work and the Spiritual Path

Laughter is one of the most powerful, yet under-appreciated tools we have in this life. It can reduce stress, improve health, build relationships, foster forgiveness, awaken our spiritual connections and inspire hope.

As a minister, comedian and cancer survivor, I’ve learned this firsthand. This keynote is for anyone who wants to lighten their perspective, focus their energies and tap the power of their innate sense of joy.



The Road Never Traveled

After a complete career U-turn from lawyer to minister and comedian, including a two year trip around the world, I learned a thing or two about risk and reinvention. Specifically targeted at those facing life transitions, The Road Never Traveled tells my story and offers entertaining, yet concrete tools that will help you take risks, face your fears and find your own path of self-discovery.
