Dawn has encouraged women with practical teaching in a number of ministries over four decades. She makes the scriptures come alive by challenging women to go beyond head knowledge to heart obedience.
Dawn's speaking and teaching will help women to:
- Develop a more intimate connection with God
- Follow Him with conviction, courage and confidence
- Relate the Word of God to the everyday circumstances of life
- Understand the pull of the culture and stand firm for Christ
- Make wise, godly decisions with eternity in mind
"Dawn is expressive in her love for God and His Word. Through her teaching, speaking, and writing, her warmth and personal interest in women connect their hearts to hers immediately. You will go away challenged in your faith for a deeper walk with Jesus." - Darlene Barber, Women’s Ministries director, Shadow Mountain Community Church
"Dawn has her finger on the pulse of what is happening in the hearts of women because she serves in the trenches on the frontlines of ministry today. She is positive, biblical, challenging, and encouraging. Every woman will benefit from the sound, authentic, compelling, and caring message God has placed on Dawn's heart." - Pam Farrel, Speaker and author of Men are like Waffles, Women are like Spaghetti
God at work:
"Amazing - clear and biblical. I loved hearing God speak pure, clean water through you. There are so many women teaching "popular" concepts - they wrap it up in the Word and serve it up. You, however, delivered the pure Word of God. It's so rare today. I can't tell you how blessed I was." - Marissa Cornish, workshop attendee, Pine Valley Bible Conference Center
"What a gift you are. We had nothing but positive comments about your ministry, the subject matter and your delivery of the message. It was moving, practical and well worth the time." - Dawn Eisentrager, Pastor's wife, Bellingham, WA
"Your presentation about the power of choice was great. It really has motivated me. I appreciate your honesty." - Bonnie Diaz, Moms of all Seasons, Maranatha Chapel

- Devotionals and Bible studies for groups like Seasoned Sisters and the Network of Evangelical Women in Ministry
- Women's groups such as MOPS, MomsNext, and Moms of All Seasons
- Women's Event and Kick-It-Up type meetings
