What Others Are Saying

"To categorize Cazandra as a speaker is to minimize her talent and message.  As Charles Spurgeon preached light through darkness, she is also able to minister to everyone in all circumstances.  Her beautiful, flowing messages make her more of an orator than mere speaker."   Betty Compton, Elephant Butte, New Mexico

"Cazandra MacDonald has a compelling personal story to tell.  She speaks to those who face similar challenges with a thoughtful and upbeat message of hope.  Cazandra quickly captures the attention of an audience with her quick wit and powerful message of perseverance.  She is truly a talented inspirational speaker."  Jim Paist, Executive Director, Hemophilia Foundation of the Minnesota/Dakotas

“Cazandra belongs to the church I attend. She also took a writing class that I presented. I knew of her musical talents but was amazed at two other assets she has. One, her writing comes straight from her heart. She’s expressive as well as informative. I was pleased to have heard her give two talks, one for a woman’s group and the second as a sermon. Wow! I think if she were a pastor at any given church, the church would have standing room only! She is a fine Christian, a wonderful friend and a loving mother. It is my pleasure to know her.” Barbara Walsh, author, Deming, NM

"Cazandra carries with her as she speaks a comfort level to share others stories so that she can make and help you feel comfortable.  Her experience is God given and He has given her the ability to help others who just might need that little bit of help along the way."  Johanna Chappelle, RN, President, Sangre de Oro, Inc., Albuquerque, New Mexico

"Cazandra MacDonald is a remarkable and captivating speaker. She has a God-given talent to convey a relevant message and immediately connect with her audience. She is able to motivate her audience, no matter if it is a small group or several hundred, as they experience her real-life stories. Cazandra inspires those around her to make a difference in their own life and to those in relationship with them. Simply stated, after hearing Cazandra I want to be a better person". Jay Bryant-Wimp, Columbia, MO

  • Topics

    Do You "Ooze"?
    Having the light of Christ radiate from you is a gift from God. We all struggle with living a life that glorifies God. What are some things that we can feed ourselves with to have His light shine through us? Come and be renewed with truth from God as women share the things that help them keep connected with Christ everyday.

    From Doubt to Joy: Making the Most of Every Day"
    This one hour, motivational presentation will focus on living an empowered life with a bleeding disorder. Bleeding disorders are challenging and life changing, but attitude makes all the difference when living with a chronic condition. Hospitals, inhibitors, emergency rooms, and needing an extra refrigerator are all part of the bleeding disorder reality. The audience will participate in an activity that will help them to see their current situation in a new light. Connections will be made and hopefully a new attitude for those struggling with their condition will emerge.

    Are You Black and Blue?
    Do you “beat yourself up” if things are not perfect? Do you struggle with your body image because you are not a certain weight? Are you not able to “keep up with the Jones’”? Come and hear the truths about how comparisons can destroy your spirit, if you are not armed with the Word of God.

    "Forty" and Qualified!
    Do you think you are supposed to accomplish "certain things" by a "certain age"? Do you let yourself get stuck into thinking that age is the end all? God uses everyone regardless of their age. Your path in life may be changing and you may be fighting it, but come and hear how God used people throughout the Bible to do wonderful things at different stages in their lives.

    Cazandra's topics are designed to be approximately 45 minutes to an hour in length. Several topics may be woven together for conferences and retreats. Cazandra is happy to address the needs of your group and develop a specialized message.
