Speaking & Connecting

Thanks so much for visiting – I hope you find the information you need as you “creep” on my site.  If you need more information I hope you’ll contact me.  (Please realize I have no “people” – well, besides my family, and they always come first – so if you don’t hear back immediately, allow me to apologize now! Rest assured, I will reply…with excitement!)

Encourager – Cause That’s How God Made Me!

When I am not pouring into my family, my heart is to pour into women and girls to esteem, empower and encourage.  Through writing, speaking and interviewing well known and everyday moms I find great joy in exploring with others what it means to Be The Mom!  I have also spoken on various topics for women, young women and teens – I even spoke at a men’s retreat to provide insight on what a Godly woman wants from her husband.  (I’ve also done some traveling and enjoy sharing experiences from my excursions to China, Israel, Rwanda and Ireland.) I am blessed to tailor my sharing to match the needs of your audience.

I have written for Cru (formally known as Campus Crusade for Christ), FamilyLife, Thriving Family Magazine, Christian Coaching Today, Family Matters, Pearl Girls, Christian Work At Home Mom, iMom, iQuestions and some amazing blogs.

What Others Are Saying

Ok, this part is weird – but you need to know what other people have to say about me since you know nothing about me or my message/speaking style!  Some of this is from speaker evaluations, some from emails, some from ministry leaders and one is from my daughter!

What moms are saying…

  • “Love the honest, energetic approach to the bad attitudes moms (like me) can struggle with, plus help for overcoming them through practical suggestions and a Christian perspective.” ~Kristin
  • “I’m going to get on the floor with my little ones and just play. I need it just as much as them! I know I have a ways to go with my self-esteem issues (that part you on touched on also spoke to me) and just being confident in who I am and how God made me. But I realize now what is the most important, and am seeing clearly for the first time in a while.”  ~Sarah
  • “Thank you for your ministry to moms. [I’m] relying on His strength and grace as he changes me to be more like Christ and less of me. Thanks again for letting God use you in lives of moms.”  ~Lori
  • “All this is just to say THANKS for being faithful with the message God has given you: I am one of those moms out there that received from Jesus because of your courage and obedience! Bless you!”  ~Jacki
  • “Better than excellent!” ~conference attendee
  • “How upbeat can a person be! Good job!” ~conference attendee
  • “Loved the reminder of how important a moms job is and how we are called to serve and obey.” ~conference attendee

  • “Two words: "Tracey" and "Eyster"! I’ve always liked the way she filters life. Her transparent and candid wisdom in “Be the Mom” will keep you nodding approval from cover-to-cover, and your stock value as a mom will spike from her timely and timeless encouragement.” - Tim Kimmel, Founder & President of Family Matters ministry, author of Grace Based Parenting
  • “ After 21 years in full-time radio, deciding to be a full-time mom to my young sons opened my eyes to the delights and challenges of motherhood.  There are so many areas where I need encouragement, affirmation, and growth!  Tracey is a mentor-friend for all of us.” – Lisa Williams, former K-LOVE Morning Show host who recently left full-time radio to embrace being a full-time mommy
  • “Laugh and learn! Fresh, frank, and funny…”- Mary A. Kassian, Professor, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, author of Girls Gone Wise
  • “Toughest job in the world, and I tell you what I loved, loved, loved [Be The Mom]…you did something brilliant that I’ve never seen anybody who’s written about motherhood before do and that is you really talk about some of these attitudinal traps, and they are real and they are out there and I just want to thank you for the way that you did this!” – Janet Parshall, radio host In The Market with Janet Parshall, author of Traveling a Pilgrims Path: Preparing Your Child to Navigate the Journey of Faith
  • “In a warm and welcoming style she invites us into her journey as a mom, winsomely reminding us of the unspeakable value of motherhood.   In the end, you are going to have fresh hope that you can “be THE mom!”- Barbara Rainey, Co-Founder of FamilyLife Speaker and author of Barbara and Susan’s Guide to the Empty Nest
  • “I am so excited about Tracey’s writing and the encouragement she gives and … moms who will benefit from an authentic mom and mentor.” – Dr. Dennis Rainey, Founder & President FamilyLife, author Stepping Up: A Call To Courageous Manhood
  • “I know Tracey Eyster and have admired her passion and zeal for helping moms be the best they can be.  Motherhood has never been harder.  Pitfalls are everywhere.  What is needed is wise encouragement from an honest, authentic life.  Tracey Eyster can offer you both.” – Robert Lewis, Pastor & Creator of the Men’s Fraternity Series
  • “Tracey’s advice is invaluable and needs to be repeated again and again in a world where moms can easily become discouraged and overwhelmed.  She’s an encouragement to pursue God in the parenting journey!” – John Fuller, Vice President Broadcasting, Focus on the Family
