Hey, I’d love to come to your next event!

The most important thing to me is relationships, so I absolutely love speaking with groups and getting to spend time with people at events. I unpack concepts from my books, like learning to love the lives we didn’t choose and developing friendships with women, and I also like sharing about other topics, like writing, relationships, adopting or raising kids, marriage, and faith. I’ve had the incredible privilege to join people at churches, retreats, and conferences for the last few years and would love to talk with you more about coming to your event.

What People Are Saying

“Bringing in Melanie Dale to speak at our church was one of the best decisions we’ve made. Not only is she humorous and engaging, but she is also honest and real. Her stories invite you into the moment. But it’s her love of Jesus that brings clarity, comfort, and hope. We have heard story after story of how her words have encouraged, inspired, and renewed. Whether you ask Melanie to speak on making friends in a scary world or how to find joy in the hardships of life, she will make your people laugh and she will give them reason to hope.”

KELLY BOSCH, DIRECTOR OF ADULT MINISTRIES, CROSSROADS CHURCH, WOODBURY, MINNESOTA

“Melanie is a dynamic author who can take any situation and turn it into a hilarious story. She has a a way with words that is so fun and endearing, and laugh out loud funny! Melanie spoke at our annual Christmas Brunch, and from start to finish she was wonderful to work with. She was super responsive, open to ideas, enthusiastic, and her talk was humorous and filled with personal stories.  It was a great morning!”

ALISON RAO, MOTHERS TOGETHER LEADER, MENLO CHURCH MOUNTAIN VIEW, CALIFORNIA

“We are a new MOPS group this year. We have a good-sized group, but very few of our moms knew each other prior to the first meeting. We were out-of-this-world blessed to snag Melanie Dale as a speaker for our second meeting of the year! She brought a real, fresh, and very funny perspective to our group. After Melanie spoke, the awkwardness of sitting at tables with total strangers was gone, our hearts were filled, and friendships began to spring up like daisies! I truly think our group got off on the right foot because of Melanie. A total professional and we loved her! We are still talking about it!”

CHARLOTTE MENGEL, AREA 20 SPV, MOPS OF LEGACY COORDINATOR

“Melanie is one of the most passionate, energetic, hilarious, Jesus-loving ladies we have had the privilege of having speak at one of our bi-monthly Ladies Events at Celebration Church! Her genuine care and concern for God’s gals comes through in her every action and word. Her lighthearted sense of humor and her captivating communication style kept every lady in attendance on the edge of her seat hanging on to her every word. Our ladies were challenged to reach out, grow, and cultivate friendships with those whom God brings our way! She totally gets this being a woman thing and shares it beautifully with all ages!”

LEIGH SEXTON, LIFE GROUPS & WOMEN’S MINISTER, CELEBRATION CHURCH

“It was a delight to work with Melanie and have her SKYPE into our MOPS meeting. She shared her stories in an authentic, transparent manner and coupled it with her humor to deliver a message which spoke volume to our group in how we connect as women. I was impressed at how she related to the audience, even via video, and answered all of our serious relationship questions. I would recommend having Melanie speak at any gathering!”

SUSAN CABANA, MOPS LEADER, FREEPORT, MAINE

“Melanie Dale is a very engaging speaker. She spoke to our group about ‘Momlationships’ with humor, insight, and wisdom. The young moms in our group, many who are longing for real relationships with other women, loved hearing what she had to say!”

PAULA DANIEL, MOM 2 MOM LEADER, TYRONE, GEORGIA

      Thank you!!!

  • Sandy

    Hi Melanie. I am just finishing your book and I want to hand it out to all of the could be friends I encounter. I love it and I feel like if I could share it with every woman I meet it would make the world a better place. A version of this should be required reading for girls in middle school also! Thanks for a great read!

    • Melanie Dale

      Thanks, Sandy! Ooh, yes, as a mom of a fifth-grade girl, I can definitely see that. Hmm…
