      • (Additional Requests for talks considered on an individual basis)
    Because of my passion to be a dedicated wife, mommy, and therapist,

    I prayerfully consider every invitation based on the following criteria:

    Availability

    Are the dates currently open? Unfortunately some wonderful speaking/teaching opportunities aren’t possible due to calendar conflicts.

    Family

    Does the request conflict with family events? The health of my family and primary relationships are my top priority. My husband, John, and I evaluate every request based on days/nights away from home during the requested month.

    Audience

    What is the primary purpose of the event? What type of people will be there? Do I believe that I can make a contribution to this audience? I desperately want to be a good steward of my time and my messages and need to be confident that I’m right for your event.

    REVIEWS

    Debra’s visit was really great for our church! She was able to handle explosive subject matter with tact, insight, and wisdom. It was also so good for our church to have a woman teach on our stage! Debra has an authenticity that makes her powerful and disarming at the same time. She has the ability to let people know her without going overboard and sharing too much about her life. She genuinely loves Jesus and wants to follow Him- and that comes through. Sex [Sex and the Single Life] is the kind of topic where you have to be straight-forward to be relevant. Debra’s godliness allows her to communicate honestly, while still maintaining a holiness. I hope that we get to work together again!

    Rarely do we hear from someone who not only is a top expert in her field but also has an unusually winsome way of engaging her audience with relevance, biblical wisdom, and practical advice. Debra Fileta’s straightforward, frank talk cut through the white noise of life on a college campus to address real issues in our students’ lives, and they loved it!  We are already planning her return visit to campus next year

    If you want a fresh conversation on single-hood and the Christian walk, then Debra is the speaker for you! The material she presents will stir souls, inspire deep conversations, and add value to every listener. She was a blessing to our church and the singles ministry

    Pastor Tony Stang

    Woodlands Church, TX

    Debra is a fantastic communicator and speaks with an amazing combination of authenticity and wisdom.  Using stories and biblical insight she has an amazing ability to connect perfectly with an audience with a wide variety of relationship experiences

    Amanda

    Liquid Church, NJ

    Debra was really able to connect with the girls on a real and personal level….They seemed to sit up straighter and prouder because they embraced the message that their identity is not in past mistakes or regrets, but rather their unconditional acceptance in Jesus.  Debra impacted the girls on a spiritual and emotional level that they will continue to reflect on for years as they pursue future relationships

    Milton Hershey School, PA

    Through her personal stories and expertise, Debra connected with the audience in such a way that it was meaningful to a  diverse group of attendees who represented a wide age range. Debra was truly one of the best speakers we have ever had at our event!
