From Sunday October 12 to November 10 I will conduct my first US speaking tour, part of an exciting year sharing the Resurrection Year message. It was never my plan to speak on the way God recycles broken dreams into something good. And Merryn and I never anticipated the response we’ve received from readers of Resurrection Year or from those hearing the message at conferences and churches. We thank God for taking this little message of restoration and bringing hope and healing through it.
Here are the US tour dates. Some vacancies remain too, so if you’d like to bring the Resurrection Year message to your church, conference or event please get in touch soon.

What I’ll be Speaking On
After ten years of tear-soaked prayers and repeatedly dashed hopes, my wife Merryn and I came to the heart-breaking conclusion that our dream of having a child was over. Empty and confused from a decade of disappointment, we left our jobs, packed our bags, and embarked on a journey in search of restoration. The resulting surprises and discoveries are told in the book Resurrection Year: Turning Broken Dreams into New Beginnings and it is this message I will be sharing. God can indeed transform tragedy into something beautiful, no matter the broken dream.
