JERI HOWE is a dynamic and inspiring speaker, writer and worship leader.
Jeri enjoys SPEAKING and leading workshops in a variety of settings including: conferences, churches, leader training events, and women’s community groups. You can expect to laugh and enjoy yourself at one of Jeri’s talks as she uncovers powerful truths and shares how to apply them to everyday life.
Jeri is honored to be a staff member of the Speak Up Conference with Carol Kent as well as Media & Communications Director and a member of the teaching team at her church, Lakeshore Vineyard Church.
In the past, Jeri also served as the Executive Producer and Moderator for the radio show, Survival Skills For Everyday Living, which featured an ever-changing panel discussing power life principles. She enjoyed working with The Pledge Radio Station in West Michigan, Lisa Troyer from Circle of Friends in Ohio, Tami Walker of Stonecroft Serves and an amazing group of panelists.
Jeri WRITES blogs, bible studies and fiction.
She is the primary author of Stonecroft Ministries’ AWARE Bible Study series. This series equips and encourages Christians to know Jesus Christ better and to share Him with those they encounter in their everyday lives. And she's written a short novel named Kamea.
Jeri has LEAD WORSHIP at women's conferences. On occasion Jeri leads worship with her husband (and sometimes with her kids as well!)
Like so many women’s lives, Jeri’s life has had different seasons. As a young woman, she earned a Mechanical Engineering Degree from the University of Michigan. After graduating she worked in the marketing department of an electric utility. Then, her life changed after the birth of her first child, when she chose to stay home full time. Several years later she transitioned into being a home-school mom. It was during this time that she found herself developing talks, discussion questions and devotionals for the Women’s Bible Study at her church which launched her into speaking and writing for wider circles.
When Jeri is not writing, speaking or leading worship you might find her practicing twanging harmonies and rhythm guitar with her husband and/or her two talented teen-aged children in West Michigan... or perhaps taking a nice long walk with her crazy, lazy beagle named Jack.
