I would love to come to your parish or event to speak on a variety of topics. Here is a list of topics, and I also am open to other ideas to meet your event’s needs.
- Be Still: Resting in the Lord in the Midst of Busy Life
- Mothering Many: Ideas for Prayer, Friendship, and Peace in the Midst of Crazy
- Marian Spirituality, including Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary and Marian Devotion in the Family (could be customized for specific liturgical seasons)
- Simple Ways to Live Out the Liturgical Seasons, including Advent, Lent, and Saintly Feast Days
I facilitated two women’s retreats at Transfiguration Catholic Church in Oakdale, Minnesota. I have spoken at women’s mornings of reflection. Since high school, I have given numerous talks on retreats as well.
I have served as a lector, and I take proclaiming the Word of God very seriously. I always feel humbly honored to be an instrument of God’s message to His people.
In addition, I appeared on Behind the Catholic Counter podcast from Aquinas and More, Relevant Radio’s Rediscover Hour, and A Seeking Heart with Allison Gingras. I also have co-hosted the CatholicMom.com podcast, CM Hangout.
I produced two short videos for WINE: Women In the New Evangelization to promote its summer book club in 2015 and 2016.

My name is Yashira Anderson and I am a Catholic Mom living in Tampa, Fl. I am a mother to 3 amazing children as well as 6 angel babies born into heaven throughout my journey to motherhood. I just recently started a moms ministry at our church, A Moms Life (http://www.sainttims.org/a-moms-life/) designed to support and affirm women in the many roles that we have in life as mothers, to deepen our faiths and come together to share the joys and struggles of motherhood. A Moms Life is about being loved, chosen, and empowered to do all God has called us to do and our goal is to connect mothers to each other and encourage them in an authentic relationship with God to grow in their faith and form friendships with your sisters in Christ. We hold meetings twice a month and we are currently looking for guest speakers to fill some of the spots we have not yet filled. I see that you offer being a speaker and you have some really great topics we would be interested in having you share with our ministry. Is this something you do often or travel for? Or have you ever done a talk via the internet? Let me know your thoughts on this and how it would work as we would love to have you speak at one of our meetings. Thanks so much and I hope to hear back from you soon! Many Blessings, Yashira
