Trophies, and Tantrums
Much of Rosa Maria's early experience and training was to
prepare her for a life at "center stage". Little did
she know that God was also preparing her to be an outstanding
Christian speaker. This entertaining and inspiring testimony
tells how Rosa Maria's wins (and losses) in beauty pageants
and her search for happiness led not to a "Miss
America" crown but to the true source of joy, the Lord
Jesus Christ. Women really identify with her as she shares the
challenges of child rearing, marriage and life. In this
message we learn that the real trophy in life is won when we
give Christ first place and use our talents to serve Him.
The Total Woman:
Body, Soul, and Spirit
Have you got it all together? Study and understand how
body, soul, and spirit are supposed to mesh together in proper
relationship and harmony but often don't, and the steps to
take when they are out of alignment. Health, happiness,
and wholeness require harmony in our three-part nature.
Fascinating, exciting, and extremely useful things you'll want
to know to help you and help you to help others.
Think back to that wonderful experience of meeting Jesus.
Do you remember the warmth, the joy, the deep sense of
happiness and purpose? The way you looked upon a new world
through new eyes? Would you now say that you have
"forsaken your first love" and, like the church at Ephesus,
you need "to remember the height from which you have fallen?"
For many, if not most of us, we may have to admit that frech
excitement and joy aren't there anymore. As Rosa Maria
present "First Love," you may experience anew the joy that
first encounter with Jesus while finding a love that is
sweeter and more enduring, more mature than before.
Are you a talker, doer, thinker, or watcher?
Is your main goal in life to have fun, be in control, seek
perfection, or be at peace? Personality Profiles always earns
rave reviews because people love to learn about the
personality types and how they influence behavior. They will
also gain real insight that will help their personal and
professional relationships. Filled with humor, entertainment,
and small group sessions, but with a solid core of Biblical
wisdom, Personality Profiles will enhance any program.
Relationships are Fragile
Sometimes it seems that too many people today
are defensive, edgy, and "brittle" due to their
busy, stressful lives. They seem so quick to take offense and
the least little thing can set them off. In this message, Rosa
Maria talks about how to avoid those hard-to-repair
confrontations and maintain good solid relationships. The
Christian way to restore broken relationships seems like a
hard road to travel because it is always our turn to initiate
forgiveness. So much in the Bible tells us that it is in those
humbling moments when we forget self and take the first step
to mend the relationship that we are most Christ-like.
Do you feel ready for life on Golden Pond?
Will you sit out your golden years in the empty nest thinking
you have completed your service? After all, it's time to pass
the torch to the young - or is it? The mature woman is an
incredible resource loaded with ability, experience, insight,
and wisdom far too valuable to be wasted and very much needed
in the work of the church. This message from Titus 2 will
inspire senior women to be true Golden Girls using their
abilities, experience, insight, and wisdom to nurture the
younger women now!
The Fairest of Them All
Oh no, not her again! The Proverbs 31 lady and
her outstanding successes in life are a delight to some, a
challenge to others, but a source of discomfort to most. How
we feel about her tells much about where we are in our own
lives. Can we have it all at once? Wife, mother, homemaker,
career woman, church worker, civic leader
- it's just too
much! Yet many women today are trying to wear all of these
hats at the same time. In this presentation, Rosa Maria
reveals how you can proceed at your own pace with the
challenge of the Proverbs 31 woman. Upon hearing this message
at a retreat, an inspired attendee wrote Rosa Maria a poem
that included these lines:
She said a
woman's beauty comes from within
Not from the kind of clothing she's in.
She opened my eyes and helped me to see
The kind of woman I want to be

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, too many people, despite the annual holiday extravaganza, haven't a clue as to what really happened. At least five individuals and
groups got the real story. How and why they got it is a story in itself. This is not your ordinary Christmas message. You will gain a unique understanding and a refreshed and beautiful perception of this most amazing act of love as seen from the perspectives of five who were there.
The Power Zone
Finding the correct balance of nutrients puts
us in the right "zone" for maximum physical health
and power. Similarly, the right balance of spiritual nutrients
- worship, prayer, praise, Bible study, and repentance puts us
in the spiritual power zone. "Ye shall receive power when
the Holy Spirit comes upon you" and when that happens,
"You can do all things through Christ who strengthens
you." We have all been there - the spiritual mountaintops
where the power of God's spirit overflows. Is it possible to
stay there? In this message, Rosa Maria serves as a tour guide
to that mountaintop - The Power Zone - whether it is your
first or hundredth visit you will not want to miss it.
Pathways of Prayer
Prayer is the
all-important pathway of spiritual connectedness to God - the way we
must take if we are to come into His presence. Can there be
anything as important? Or worthwhile? There is much to learn
about prayer. This message has Biblical principles that will
energize your prayer life and transform it into a powerful spiritual
force, opening a true dialogue with God.
Adam's Rib and Other Funny Bones
"Male and female created He them" -
and the differences are much more than just pink or blue
booties. Today some want to ignore, blur, or erase these
differences, and yet are not the happier for it! In this
presentation, Rosa Maria covers some of the hilarious
situations that grow out of the differences between those men
from Mars and the ladies from Venus. The finale will remind us
that we have to live together on Earth. Learn how to bring
this boy-girl business back into the kind of relationship God
sets forth in His Word.
