Emotionalvirtue

“Emotional Virtue for a Drama-Free Life”

Men and women today are faced with a constant assault on their emotions. Whether from the media or the environment around them, relationships are especially under attack. Sarah targets this battle within by setting forth a vision for virtue in the twenty-first century, one that focuses on beginning with the end in mind, building what will last, and staying off the “Emoticoaster.”
(For co-ed audiences and also a separate version for an all-female audience—presentations have been given to junior high, high school, college, and young adult audiences at school assemblies, rallies, retreats, and conferences.)

Gentlemansguide

“The Gentleman’s Guide”

Is there some kind of formula, blue-print, outline, finger-paint drawing, anything to help men navigate life and relationships in the twenty-first century? As we all know, men face the challenge of harnessing their passions and emotions in a way unique only to them. Sarah takes an in-depth look at the differences between men and women, the man’s role in a relationship, and the truth about what women really want. (For male audiences—presentations have been given to junior high, high school, college, and young adult audiences at school assemblies, rallies, retreats, and conferences.)

Perfectionism

“Perfectionism & Competition”

In a world of intense pressure for perfection, competition, and comparing—often ending in despair—Sarah brings to light the inner struggle of many women today: interior confidence. With the perspective of virtue, she devises a game plan to conquer that inner voice telling women, “You’re not enough.” Sarah addresses the issues women quietly fight, such as body image, self-worth, and female friendships. No more masks, walls, or facades… you’re more than enough! (For female audiences—presentations have been given to junior high, high school, college, and young adult audiences at school assemblies, rallies, retreats, and conferences.)

dramafree

“Drama-Free Relationships”

Building upon her talk “Emotional Virtue for a Drama-Free Life,” Sarah takes the audience through what she calls “The Natural Progression of a Relationship.” How does someone navigate the at times rocky waters of twenty-first-century dating—going from “Hey” to “I Do”? Sorting out the “Gray Areas” of talking, texting, and hanging out, Sarah lays out a roadmap for relationships—always beginning with the end in mind. (For co-ed audiences—presentations have been given to high schools, college, and young adult audiences at school assemblies, rallies, retreats, and conferences.)

messenger

“Don’t Shoot the Messenger”

Through countless conversations and interviews with young men, Sarah has asked the tough questions and heard their answers. In this talk, Sarah’s “Interview with the Guys” comes to life as she takes a hard look at how women can help or hurt the men in their lives with their actions, words, and wardrobe. With what Sarah calls the “Modesty of Intentions,” she takes on the question, “What are women really trying to ‘say’?” Just remember, please, don’t shoot the messenger! (For female audiences—presentations have been given to junior high, high school, college, and young adult audiences at school assemblies, rallies, retreats, and conferences.)

lookingoutside

“Looking From the Outside In”

As a parent, teacher, coach, priest, religious, or anyone close to a young woman or man transitioning through stages of life, it can be tough to watch your loved ones go through this challenging time. Is there a game plan for these years? How can someone help and not just stand by? In this talk, Sarah offers an understanding of Emotional Virtue, a map for navigating relationships, and a closer look at how to build up interior confidence. Being that person your loved one turns to—and does not run from—starts now. (For an adult audience—presentations have been given at schools, rallies, retreats, and conferences.)
