Nancy Dempsey of Raytown, Missouri, will be the speaker for Christian Women in September. Her message is “Only by Invitation: God Triumphs through the Trials.”

Dempsey is a wife, mother and retired teacher, who is currently a children’s entertainer and was formerly known as Pinky Lee the Clown. Her story emphasizes how God triumphed through the hardships in her life.

She shares how her father’s suicide revealed that her Heavenly Father cared for her. She also shares her struggles with pregnancies and how she discovered that she does not have a perfect life, but a perfect Savior, according to a press release.

“We only have two choices in life: Turn from God or Trust God,” the release said.

Dempsey adds humor throughout her story so it is not heavy and sad.
