"If you judge people, you have no time to love them." --- Mother Teresa
Born and raised in a small Tennessee town nestled in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains, Terrie still has a sweet Southern accent even though she's officially been a Kansan for more than 20 years. She learned to love others at an early age, a trait she acquired from her family - a family of honor, integrity and deep faith. Loving herself, however, was another story.
"There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humor." --- Charles Dickens
A nationally recognized and well-loved public speaker with more than a dozen years of experience, Terrie's easy-going sense of humor coupled with her powerful message draws audiences in and leaves them clamoring for more.
"Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow." --- Albert Einstein
Hailing from a long line of story-tellers, Terrie lives life immersed in the written word. She is the senior editor at Kansas City's premier advertising agency, as well as the author of the books "Lord, Help! Here Comes Mom!" and "God Even Loves Wiener Dogs." Terrie also pens the daily blog "The Tree House," which has a large, loyal and fast-growing readership.
