“Rebekah presented a keynote presentation at Northside Women’s Specialists for all of our doctors and staff, and she has also provided programming for our yearly staff retreat. We laughed at her incredibly unique style, but we also had to realistically confront ways we were keeping our workplace from being creative, empowered and accountable.”
~ Tanya Mack
CFO, Northside Women’s Specialists

“Rebekah introduced to us, in a skillful and provocative way, a collection of characters who invited us to step deeply into their stories, and thus through them to think more imaginatively and purposefully about both our stories and God’s story. Thanks to Rebekah’s talents, gifts, and deep insight, I left with new food for thought.”

“Rebekah Carpenter’s program is relevant, powerful, and moving. It is obvious that she conducted lots of research on the issues that our teachers face each day. I was awed by her acting talent and her incredible ability to embody the soul of each character. She captured the essence of the teaching profession’s daily challenges and rewards in her heartwarming presentation. Without hesitation, I recommend her one-woman play to anyone who deeply cares about educating children.”

“Tender and powerful, funny and beautiful, this work touches deep inside to the heart of meaning. These expertly crafted performances reflect a deep understanding of the inner life and of outer day-to-day realities. Through a gorgeous singing voice, a playful sense of humor, and a gift for capturing the human condition through theatre, Rebekah’s plays inspire and raise courageous and practical questions about how we attend to our life and our work. These are wonderful vehicles for transformative growth either as entire workshops or as a potent and lively keynote address.”

“The quality of Rebekah’s presentations are unmatched by most speakers and performers. Rebekah’s programs empower you from “within” and paint a vivid picture of what keeps us from being fully present and connected to ourselves and to other people.”
