Our Featured Speaker- Elizabeth Oates

Elizabeth is an author, blogger, and speaker whose family tree was plagued with generations of divorce, addiction, abuse, abandonment, and general brokenness. Over the years, however, Elizabeth experienced God’s redemption and restoration. She now brings hope and healing to women and families experiencing the same brokenness she endured.

Elizabeth earned her B.A. from Baylor University and an M.A. from Dallas Theological Seminary with a focus in Marriage and Family Studies before writing three books:

  • Dealing with Divorce: Finding Direction When Your Parents Split Up (2009)
  • If You Could See as Jesus Sees: Inspiration for Hope, Joy, and Purpose (2016)
  • Mending Broken Branches: When God Reclaims Your Dysfunctional Family Tree (2018)

While all of this sounds fancy, Elizabeth knows no matter how perfect our Instagram posts, no matter how Pinterest-worthy our homes—we all need Jesus.

 Today Elizabeth lives in Waco, Texas with her husband, Brandon, and their five children, including three biological and two they adopted through foster care.
