“The Creator’s Pleasure”-Jodianne’s Personal Testimony- Take a walk with Jodianne through the life of a Jehovah’s Witness who, though she may not realize it, is being wooed by her heavenly Father to great and wonderful things. Jodianne uses the transformation of the caterpillar to a beautiful butterfly to explain her painful, yet joyous transformations from being a member of a false religion to walking in the truth. “It is not so much about what I have been saved from as much as it is about what I have been saved for.” “God rewrote the text of my life when I opened the book of my heart to his eyes.”-2 Samuel 22:25 The Message Bible  

   

“The Master’s Garden”- What is Jesus trying to tell us when He talks about being  “pruned in the Word” in John 15? Jodianne takes you for a walk with her earthly father through her real garden and brings the passage of scripture to life in a humorous, yet powerful way that will leave you desiring to be pruned by the Master Gardener.  “…and He prunes every branch that produces fruit so that it will produce more fruit.” John 15:2 TNIV 
 
 
 
“Who’s In Your Pond?”- As Christians, we have received the same commissioning that he Apostles did. We are called to seek out the lost and lead them to the Father. The question is, “Are we doing it?” Be encouraged to step out of your comfort zone and seek the lost through Jodianne’s message as we sit by her fish pond and hear the life lessons that God has spoken to her at the water’s edge. “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will make you a Fisher of men.” Matthew 4:19 TNIV 

 

 

“When you are in the Pits, you better have a HOT Pass”-  Whether you are a fan or not, you will never look at Nascar Racing in the same way again after you hear Jodianne retell her first trip to the speedway. Go into the “pits” with Jodianne and get a glimpse at the full access that each of us have to the heavenly Father. Each of us has a HOT PASS just waiting to be used, but many of us let it turn COLD. Jodianne will encourage you to always use the access to the Father that was given to us at the cross. “…we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened to us through the curtain, that is, His body.” Hebrews 10:19,20 TNIV 

 

 

“G.P.S.- God’s Plan Sustains”- God has a clear plan for each of our lives. He knows exactly what He has in store for us. Though His plans may not be clear to us, His promise is that they are plans “to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Our part of that equation is to follow His road map for our lives, to seek Him, and not get distracted by detours. Jodianne brings this lesson to life as she retells a humorous story of a road trip with a friend and what happens when you don’t follow the clear directions in front of you. “Then you will know which way to go, since you have never been this way before.” Joshua 3:4 NIV  

 

 

“Picture Perfect”- (This monologue is perfect for a Christmas service or a women’s Christmas event. It can also be adapted as a teaching for mothers.) Using pictures of past Christmas’s gone “bad,” Jodianne paints a picture of how that first Christmas when Christ was born, was not so picture perfect, yet at the same time, God wouldn’t have changed a thing. Based off of Luke 2, you will laugh, you may even cry, but your perspective of what a “picture perfect” Christmas is supposed to look like, will forever change.
