I’m enthusiastic about the potential of speaking at your gathering. I work with groups — large or small — on a variety of topics including the Catholic faith, family, and life as a mom, daughter, wife, and Army spouse.  Committed to Catholic teaching, I bring an upbeat style and inviting atmosphere to my talks and will tailor my work to your group’s specific needs.

What people have to say about my work!

Elizabeth Tomlin, Army wife, mother, and attorney, provides an excellent, prayerful reflection on integrating the Gospel into everyday life.  Her prose will inspire readers both within and outside the military.

His Excellency The Most Reverend Timothy P. Broglio, Archbishop for the Military Services, USA

Speaking to approximately 500 members Elizabeth’s presentation was enjoyed as a powerful message on accompaniment and what the gift of women’s groups grounded in spiritual friendship can accomplish and how women can benefit from those relationships.

Fran Lucas, President of the Catholic Women’s League of Canada

To say that Elizabeth captivated those who attended our evening of reflection, would be a gross understatement.  Her Joyful Momentum talk, and how she can tailor points for a specific need, is the perfect way to bring focus to a day or weekend of reflection, or any ministry event. Her passion for missionary discipleship brings an approachable mastery to a variety of subjects, while leading participants/attendees in wonderful new directions of thought and engagement.  If you have your calendar of events and are looking for a warm and wonderful speaker definitely consider Elizabeth, you will be richly blessed by her.

Muffy Patterson, St. Michael Parish, Columbia, South Carolina

Elizabeth Tomlin spoke to our group of 40 women at Camp Humphreys, South Korea in May of 2022 and helped jumpstart a lethargic parish that didn’t realize they needed to hear her words.  She guided us through an engaging day with several thought-provoking exercises that got the women talking, thinking, and praying! As a military spouse she was particularly able to relate to the sacrifices our community makes and made us laugh with her relatable stories!  She was wonderful to work with and really tailored her talks to what our group wanted and needed. Elizabeth gave us an unforgettable day!

Michelle Notaro, Camp Humphreys, South Korea

The Ladies of Vicenza’s Catholic Women of the Chapel were blessed to have Elizabeth Tomlin speak at our Fall Kick-Off in 2022! She asked questions beforehand to know the audience better and to see what gifts and stories would benefit the group. During her presentation, she engaged the audience, interacted with the ladies, and left as a friend to us that night. In addition, she brings joy into the room, just like in her book, “Joyful Momentum.” To have her as a speaker is a blessing and a joy!

Elizabeth Wheeler, Vicenza, Italy

With powerful, practical, and spirit-filled writing, Elizabeth Tomlin builds upon foundational concepts for starting, maintaining, and growing an effective faith-filled women’s ministry, and more importantly, leading women into a deep and lasting relationship with Jesus Christ. I highly recommend this thorough and well-written guide!

Michele Faehnle, Director of the Columbus Catholic Women’s Conference
