Mary Carver | Writer, Editor & Speaker

Are you looking for a warm, dynamic speaker for your group or event?

Mary Carver is an engaging storyteller who loves encouraging women to give up on perfect and to choose joy, so they can live life to the full. Her down-to-earth style and powerful “me, too” messages give women the opportunity to laugh and to let down their guards as they learn to let go of comparison and perfectionism so they can embrace the blessings and opportunities God has given them.

Mary’s career in communications has given her the opportunity to present reports to management teams and clients, emcee fundraising galas, and teach college students to give speeches. But her favorite audience (aside from her two little girls, who giggle at all the wrong places and roll their eyes at her 80s references) is women. She loves sharing her stories with women who need a bit of encouragement, women who struggle with expectations and frustrations, women just like her – and she’d love to speak to the women attending your event, too.

Favorite Topics to Speak On

  • Stop, Drop & Roll: How to Avoid Becoming a Hot Mess [On fighting the fires and meltdowns caused by perfectionism]
  • Choose Joy & Flourish! [Based on the 2015-2016 MOPS theme]
  • Planning a Fabulous Party {without losing your mind}
  • Pinned: Beating Comparison & Perfectionism in a Pinterest [Social Media] World
  • Stay Weird: A Message to Our Children & Ourselves [Encouragement to throw away that boring definition of “normal” and to simply be who God created us to be]

Mary would love to work with you and/or speak to your group next! Contact her with any questions, for rates and to schedule her as a speaker for your group or event.

Mary Carver spoke to our group about “Giving Up on Perfection.” She was hilarious, lovable, full of grace, and a wonderful speaker. I’d highly recommend her to any group who wants to be inspired and see the love of Jesus in action.
