In 2014, Nancy delivered a compelling talk, “What Does God’s Love Look Like?” from the book of Hosea. In this talk, Nancy helped delegates to see the unfathomable and unconditional love of God, to women who are unfaithful and undeserving.
“The gospel of grace just hit me…I couldn’t ignore God’s tugging on my heart anymore, so I became a Christian then and there at OneLove.”
– Jen, OneLove 14 delegate

In her talk “What is Shaping You?”, Nancy turned to Romans 12 and invited women to identify the voices the were shaping their desires, expectations and decisions in life. Nancy powerfully contrasted the expectations of the world, with the will of God through His word, and concluded that “you can be shaped the world around you, or you can be shaped by the Word within you.” The former demands women to conform to the world while the latter leads to true and lasting transformation through God’s word.
This devastating loss motivated Nancy to turn to Scripture for answers, and through this process, she genuinely learned to fully trust in God’s wisdom to life’s hardest questions. Her story of loss and grief has enabled Nancy to communicate God’s truth and redeeming promises with empathy and gentleness.
Nancy currently teaches the Bible at her home church, Cornerstone Presbyterian Church in Franklin, Tennessee, as well as at conferences around the country and internationally, including through her Biblical Theology Workshops for Women. She has authored numerous books including the Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament Bible study series, and Even Better Than Eden, and is the host of the Help Me Teach the Bible podcast at The Gospel Coalition. She and her husband host Respite Retreats for couples who have faced the death of a child and are co-hosts of the GriefShare video series.
