Theater and Film Track Leader; Author, Speaker and Dramatist
Peg Arnold, speaker/author has been a leader in women’s ministry for more than 25 years, using personal witness, drama, teachings, and humor to make scripture come alive. She shares the joys and challenges of balancing the hectic and the holy in her roles as a PK (preacher’s kid), wife, mother, Nana, sister, friend, teacher, counselor, and church leader. Whether talking with a friend over coffee, or addressing hundreds of people at a conference, her passion for encouraging women to find their true value and purpose, and to use their gifts in their daily lives, is contagious.
Peg’s essays are in Chicken Soup for the Soul books, several anthologies, and her book, Devotions for the Distracted Heart. She has developed both one-time presentations and weekend retreats featuring Biblical characters such as the Woman at the Well, Mary and Martha, and several contemporary characters including “Church Ladies.” These have entertained and touched the hearts of many audiences up and down the east coast. Peg grew up in Michigan, raised her family in MD, and now explores Colorado.
