Speaking / Teaching / Retreat Topics

Hello and welcome!
I have been a MOPS Speaker for about 10 years and have also taught at Saddleback Church's Women's Bible Study as well as for Mom's Groups and other church affiliated groups.
I have a M.A. in Education and taught elementary school for 11 years before deciding to stay home and raise my family. My husband John and I have 3 children, Kiana- 15, Luke-13, and Logan- 11 years old.
I love encouraging mothers! I remember all too well, how wonderful it was and how overwhelming it was at the same time!

I speak in the Orange, LA, Riverside and San Diego areas and have been very blessed to be called back to revisit many churches.

If you are interested in having me speak, teach your group or speak at your next Women's Retreat, please do not hesitate to contact me!
@ (949) 279-0515 or you can email me @ janethertogh@gmail.com 
I charge a fee of $100 per talk plus mileage, and this is negotiable, of course!

What others have said after hearing me speak:

Janet Hertogh spoke about friendship for our MOPS group at Saddleback Church.  All the women were inspired by Janet's personal stories, the importance of friendship, and having a relationship with God.  
Janet's powerful message brought  the women closer together that day.  It was amazing to see some of these mothers open up and share their stories because of Janet. 
Our MOPS group still talks about Janet's visit and how she brought our relationships to another level with each other and God.  
I highly recommend Janet to any group that wants a real, easy to talk to, awesome personality, spiritually motivated, great sense of humor, down to earth, phenomenal speaker.

"Hi Janet :)
Thank you so much for blessing our group again!! Our mommies loved your talk and it really started some good conversations at the tables and allowed and encouraged the moms to open up to each other.
I especially loved how you encouraged them to pray for each other and share their troubles. That really got us off to a great start for the year, opening up the opportunity for the moms to share with each other and know that this is a safe place to do that. I also really appreciated the fact that you were so gracious to stay and chat with some of the ladies. I know that you had a long drive ahead of you, and we so appreciated that you took the time to speak with those ladies one on one! :)
Here are the pictures I took, I"m sorry it wasn't very many. The pics of the group are when the ladies were drawing their pigs :) I thought that was a great way to start :)
Thank you again so much! I pray the rest of your year goes well and that we have the opportunity to hear you speak again in the future!!

God bless,
Kristen Keplinger, Speaker Coordinator for MOPS, Revival in Menifee, CA"

"Hi Janet!
I hope all is well for you. I've been seeing your fun updates on your blog and on facebook! Well, since you spoke at our group last, the women haven't stopped talking about YOU! I was hoping to rebook you for spring (seems like eons away!). Would you be available to speak to our group again? I would love for you to do a "SEX" talk- seriously, the women have been asking for it and they love the way you are so approachable, down to earth, etc.

All the best,

"Hi Janet, 
I wanted to thank you again for speaking at our MOMS Together group at Seacoast Grace church.  We absolutely loved having you there!  You did a great job of speaking truth with humor to our moms.  I was encouraged as a mom and inspired as a wife. 
I will be glad to be used a reference for anyone who is wondering if they should book you to speak at their moms group.  We greatly appreciated having you at ours!

Comments from my recent Retreat:

"Thank you for opening up and sharing your heart with us. Thank you for praying with me and for my husband and myself.
You are an awesome person in the Lord and a wonderful example of a Christian.
Thank you for sharing 'YOU'  with us!
Love, Paulette"

"Thank you so much for being God's implement to minister to us this weekend. Your openness blessed us- your contrite heart glorified the Lord- may you be a blessing to many others. Thank you- We were blessed!

"Oh Janet, how you have blessed us with your brokenness before the Lord. You are unabashed in your gratefulness to His rescuing you from the enemy's plan of destruction! Because of that, the Lord uses you to break His love and power into the dark places in our own lives! God us using your powerfully. Go Girl!
Love, Celeste"

"Thank you for being so transparent and identifiable. Our stones are of no use unless we share them and give glory to the One who delivered us from that which impedes our joy and ability to know the freedom and peace our King wants for us. You have been a blessing!

"Dear Janet,
I praise God for you sister! What a great weekend! Thank you so much for coming to speak at the Mission Hills community Church ladies retreat.  Your heart and passion to serve the Lord with all your heart is obvious.  I would highly recommend you for any speaking engagement.
Thank you for being real and for sharing your heart.   I heard from many women how your transparency set a tone for our women to experience that same level of transparency with one another.  
You shared your heart and you shared God's word.  God used you mightily. 
I'm so grateful personally for how serious you took the responsibility of teaching the word of God.   You earnestly sought the Lord and it was obvious how many hours you spent on your knees is prayer.  
Thank you for seeking the Lord and speaking His truths.

It's a privilege to call you friend.  Thank you for pouring into us and teaching us how blessed we are to be a blessing.
