  BACKGROUND VERIFIED
$2500 - $6000 per event
We were a typical family: we lived trying to do things right — working hard, providing for the family, following Christian values. On Gordon's 51st birthday, out of nowhere, a terrible thing happened: he suffered a massive stroke! One might say we were dealt a dirty card, but we see it differently. The experience has been a true test of faith and perseverance.

Our journey of recovery is still in progress. Gordon is now 7 years post-stroke and we are happy to report that he is getting better all the time. We will discuss this life changing experience and the lessons that have come along with it. Our hope is to inspire people and help them see that good things can happen, even when one doesn't think it is possible. Gordon is certainly not fully recovered from his stroke so this isn't an “I did it and you can too” speech. I am in the middle of my recovery and so my perspective is from “the trenches.”

Audiences will laugh, cry, and be inspired as Gordon and Jill discuss this life-changing experience and the life-lessons gained from their struggle.

Do you have trouble:

Facing challenges
Embracing change
Examining relationships and attitudes
Finding happiness and success in ways previously unimagined?
Hope and encouragement in the face of adversity are universal needs. Humor and compassion are key to you envisioning this life-changing experience.
