A highly sought-after speaker for conferences, seminars, retreats, and womenís events, George delivers life-changing words of hope to audiences across the U.S. and beyond. In 2003, she launched a series of one-minute nationally-syndicated radio segments entitled A Woman After Godís Own Heartģ through which she encourages women to pursue godliness in their personal lives, as a wife and mother, at work, and in their ministry.

In her newest book, A Wife After Godís Own Heart, George invites married women to experience a more fulfilling union by focusing on their calling as a wife and by loving their husband the way God intended. Providing instruction in 12 key areas of marriage, George explores ways that a wife can establish herself as a helpmate, develop spiritual strength, create a refuge within the home, honor her husband according to Godís plan, and build an intimate marital relationship.
