Aspire Speakers & Artists

Mia Koehne

Singer/Songwriter, Worship Leader, & Speaker 

As a singer/songwriter and worship leader, Mia’s soulful music reflects the painful beauty of human struggles and a passion to worship the God who saves. Her life is a compelling story of sin, surrender, sanctification and song. Living as a testimony to God’s grace and His forgiveness, she is inspired to share that message of hope with others through music as a recording artist, a writer and a speaker. Mia is the wife of Bob and the mother of three children, Chris, Aaron and Miriam.

Deb Headshot

Debbie Alsdorf

Author & Speaker  

Debbie Alsdorf’s mission is to help women live a better story—by leading them to the heart of God’s love and the truth of His word. Not a stranger to hard life, she has been trained through troubles to find the gift in every bitter cup. She speaks internationally delivering messages with wit, biblical truth, vulnerability and hope. She is an Amazon best-selling author of women’s non-fiction and bible studies, a biblical lay counselor, certified life coach and the founder of Design4Living ministries. In addition, she mentors at writers’ conferences and is a speaking coach for The Leverage speakers/communicators conference. Her newest release, It’s Momplicated, offering hope and healing for imperfect mothers and daughters, was featured on The Today Show.

She and her husband Ray have been married 28 years and raised a blended family of four adult children. Together they minister to marrieds, pre-marrieds and blended families. She likes long walks, anything with sand and sea, dancing in Zumba classes and a good chocolate donut. But her favorite thing of all is being a Grammy to their ten little loves, all under five years of age. Her cup, once empty, is overflowing with grace, hope and purpose.

Melissa Spoelstra

Author & Speaker 

 

Melissa is madly in love with Jesus and addicted to the study of His word. She is passionate about knowing and inspiring other women to seek Him by opening their ears to listen to His Spirit, reading His Word curiously, asking questions and clinging tightly to God through the storms of life. As a wife to Sean, and mother of four great kids, she works out her faith on a daily basis always in need of God’s Word to draw her back to the things of first importance.

Mary Shannon

Teacher & Speaker 

From the moment we could sit still in our mother’s arms, we have loved stories. Stories around the supper table are some of the best moments in life and are the times we best come to know these people we call family. Much of our heritage is learned through the passing down of stories. This is exactly how the Bible was passed down for generations yet today people seem to believe that the Bible is a list of do’s and don’ts instead of a beautiful story of love, betrayal, forgiveness and redemption.

Shannon uses her divine knowledge of Scripture to put the story back together again. Many people have several pieces of the puzzle, yet they have no idea how it all fits together in the greatest love story ever told. This is what Shannon does! She has an amazing way of connecting the pieces while sharing some of the funniest yet applicable personal stories you have ever heard.

One minute you are laughing and the next minute you realize that the Holy Spirit just spoke and you have an “aha” moment that will stay with you forever.

Amberly Neese

Comedian & Speaker 

 

Amberly Neese is a speaker, comedian, and author with a passion for “GRINspiring” others.  She has won hearts (and funny bones) of people all over the country (www.amberlyneese.com) at various retreats, conferences, and fundraisers. Amberly received her Master’s degree from Biola University and now serves as a professor at both Embry-Riddle Aeronautical and Grand Canyon Universities.  

Amberly has a heart for connecting others to God and to one another.  Her three most current bible studies are “The Belonging Project” (guidelines to help you thrive in biblical community),  “Common Ground” (strategies to help you navigate sticky relationships), and her latest, “Untangling Faith” (approaches to tackle deep spiritual questions by looking at the questions of Jesus).  In addition, her popular devotional, “The Friendship Initiative: Loving and Connecting Like Jesus” provides new strategies for making friendships.   Amberly is a featured comedian and speaker for both Aspire and Marriage Date Night tours.  She and her husband have two adult children and live in Prescott, Arizona, where they enjoy the great outdoors, the Food Network, and all things Star Wars.

 

Kristin Weber-Witty

Kristin Weber-Witty is a writer and comedian who tours all over the country and has been featured on TBN’s The Huckabee Show, The Babylon Bee, and her DryBar special is set to release later this year. She has authored four books, including her latest release, Adulting for Jesus: A Book About Purpose, Trusting God, and (Obviously) Burritos. She lives in Dallas, TX with her husband, Isaac (who is also a comedian).
