Carolyn Dale Newell Speaker

Carolyn Dale Newell – Inspirational-Testimonial Speaker

Inspirational speaking is my favorite part of ministry because that is when I connect with women face-to-face. I will be available for conversation, photos, and most importantly, prayer throughout the event. It is my great desire to walk with women as we grow together in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Iva, my beautiful guide dog, and I would love to come to your next ladies event or worship service.

Let me introduce myself to you. I am Carolyn Dale Newell, a fifty-something born again Christian. Although I have been legally blind since childhood, I was forced to adapt to life as a blind person when a sudden dramatic loss of vision occurred in 2011. Through that season, I witnessed God’s grace and strength in marvelous ways. My desire is to encourage people in their trials.

I have genuinely walked by faith, not by sight.

God has taught me to believe for miracles as He restored some sight after a cataract surgery. The pivotal moment in my life was the day I got lost while walking. What seemed to be one of the worse days of my life turned out to be one of the best days. God put me on the path of obtaining my first guide dog, Iva. This gift from God wrapped in black fur has transformed my life.

I have also experienced fear, depression and grief over a wayward child. Through all of these difficult situations, my faith has grown. I have blossomed out of my brokenness, and that is the reminder I share with women.

I have worked with a speaking coach, Amy Carroll with Proverbs 31 Ministries.

Speaking Topics include (but are not limited to):

  • Exercise Faith- Carolyn shares her venerability to fear as she describes how God brought her from fear to faith. You will be encouraged to step out in faith, and overcome disappointment. Embrace God’s promises that are associated with complete trust in God.
  • God Said No – For every thorn, God gives us the rose, the Rose of Sharon, Jesus Christ. Like the Apostle Paul, we all go through times when God says “No.” Carolyn unpacks these Scriptures enhancing our understanding of God’s all-sufficient grace. Her personal testimony helps us realize God’s purposes for thorns, and the effect our testimonies have on others.
  • From Broken to Beautiful – We all face seasons of brokenness, but the beauties of God are revealed during these times. We emerge as beautiful victorious daughters of God. You will discover the peace God gives to soothe our anxious hearts and be encouraged to walk in faith with Jesus by your side.
  • Guide Dog Presentation – People of all ages are amazed as I demonstrate Iva’s abilities. The life of a guide dog is interesting from puppy-hood to an adult. I engage audiences of all ages as I show them how drastic distractions are to a guide dog team. I will also educate management teams about the ADA law and fake service dogs.

“I’ve been blessed to have Carolyn as a friend for 4 years now. We attend the same church and share the same disability, although I am only blind in one eye. Her love for our Lord Jesus and His Word, and willingness to share it with those she meets is an inspiration to me. She is a great communicator and is at ease whether it’s sharing the importance of Iva, her guide dog dog, in a small setting, or sharing her testimony in a large setting. I recommend her as a speaker that will bless, inspire, and motivate people to walk closer to our Lord”.

“I would like to share, if anyone may be considering Carolyn Newell as a speaker for their upcoming event, I highly recommend her. She and Iva have been a blessing to myself and many other people that I know. Her testimony has touched my soul, and her true care for others is genuine. I spoke with Carolyn about a concern I had for a friend asking her to pray about a situation. Not only did she agree to pray for my friend, she stopped right then and there and we prayed together. That showed me truly what kind of love Carolyn has for others.”
