Meet Featured Sister Tami Kiser

Kiser, TamiIf a mother of 10 (yes, 10!) can run a home business then I really have no excuse. I met Tami Kiser through CatholicMom.com where we both serve as blog contributors. I was excited to hear about her upcoming virtual event designed to revive busy moms spiritually — without the added hassle of traveling to a live conference. Join Tami and get out of survival mode and into revival mode!

Meet Featured Sister Tami Kiser

Business Name: CatholicConference4Moms

Business Description:

This is an online Catholic conference for moms, but certainly not exclusive to just Catholics. It’s just that this is the primary faith that is shared by the presenters.  It is hoped that it will become an annual event connecting moms and many of the blogs that minister to Catholic moms.

Tami’s Story: 

I tried my hand at running my own ministry, Smart Martha. In that ministry I had a book and travelled regularly to do all day seminars, mostly for women’s church groups. The seminars focused on setting priorities, faith and family first, and then on practical organizing and homemaking tips. They were well received. But, I got tired of travelling and was looking for other ways to help busy moms. (Travelling also took it’s toll on this busy mom.)

I started to look into the idea of an online conference. AFter a lot of research, I came up with this current model. And after so many years of travelling, speaking at conferences, and writing a couple of books, I had many connections with other women who were my potential speakers. Plus I like the fact that it could all be done from my desk at home! I found a couple of film students and hired them to be my video team. The conference is all pre-taped–this may not seem as dynamic, but for most moms, having that flexibility of when the presentations will be viewed wins over the “live” factor.

I’ve always loved being in business for myself and am thankful for the opportunity this conference has been for me. I’ve found an outlet for my creativity–designing the webpages, ads, logo, etc. I’ve found an opportunity for practicing my marketing, advertising skills. And finally, I’ve used my HR skills with all of the people I’ve been meeting, emailing, and talking to on the phone. Besides this small business venture, I am a full time mother of 10 children. And I work part-time teaching at a private, Catholic school.

Meet Featured Sister Anne Elizabeth Denny

anne elizabeth dennyAnne is the woman at the party talking about what nobody wants to hear — end of life decisions. But it’s a topic we all need to talk about with our families. And she’s making it easier to start that conversation.

Meet Featured Sister Anne Elizabeth Denny

Business Name: Plan Well Finish Well

Business Description: As a speaker, author and blogger, I educate and equip individuals and families to proactively prepare for future medical decisions. I especially help women—both those dealing with a loved one’s or their own—upcoming end-of-life journey to trade conflict, confusion and fear for family unity, confidence and peace of mind.

Anne’s Story: 

My mother’s twenty year journey with Alzheimer’s disease was the catalyst for the work I do. Though Mom’s decline was gradual, we faced numerous medical decisions in her final three years. As a family, we did not always agree on the best care possible for Mom.

My experiences, coupled with a whisper from the Holy Spirit, prompted me to explore how other families were coping with end-of-life decisions. I learned that most families never discuss their preferences until the crisis unfolds in the ER. I felt called to learn all I could so I could help other families prepare.

For most of my professional career, I served as a business technology consultant in the healthcare industry. I developed solutions to solve problems for clients, usually by selecting and applying technology. Those skills equipped me to to design and develop a web-based healthcare directive tool, which I’ve licensed to a major healthcare delivery system. I’m actively marketing to other prospects. I’ve written a book, offered motivational presentations, and created my blog to share the message that end-of-life preparation affords peace of mind.

Helping families stay united instead of battling over care for a loved one is my mission. Scripture repeatedly commands us: “Do not fear.” I believe that part of our testimony is a graceful end-of-life journey. With thoughtful preparation, we can demonstrate that we do not fear dying, because we are certain of our salvation. As Christian women, we have the opportunity and responsibility to prepare our families for the dying process. We can be the conversation catalyst for those we love, ensure all of our family members write and communicate their healthcare directives.

I am a mentor. Actually I am a pointer. I point to things. Things like… lies I see women believe, truth that the Bible reveals, and a love like no other, Jesus. I’m the “been there done that” girl on a journey to come back and lend a hand, a shoulder and yes a pointer. I love encouraging and equipping women in the art of womanhood.
