Balancing Life in Your "War Zones"
One hundred babies in open cardboard boxes, strapped in the belly of a gutted cargo jet. It was 1975, Saigon was falling to the Communists, and LeAnn Thieman was "accidentally" caught up in the Vietnam Orphan Airlift. Today she applies life-changing lessons from her airlift experiences to the "war zones" of our everyday lives – too much to do, too few resources, too much stress! In this poignant, yet humorous presentation, Thieman motivates audiences to balance their lives, live their priorities, and make a difference in the world.

Chicken Soup for the Nurse's Soul
Most nurses didn't choose their careers because of the great hours, pay, and working conditions! Healthcare speaker LeAnn Thieman reminds them why they entered this profession – and why they stay. By filling them with hope, health, and healing, she honors these caregivers, gifting them with love and life-saving lessons they bestow on others, inspiring them to continue their compassionate service.

You've Got to See It to Be It!
LeAnn Thieman empowers audiences to improve their health by improving their attitudes. She teaches how pregnancy and labor tools – breathing, relaxation, positive thinking, and visualization – apply as we all "labor" through life.

Light a Single Candle
A sign above a pediatric burn unit in Vietnam read, "It is better to light a single candle than to curse the darkness." Motivational speaker LeAnn Thieman reminds audiences they don't have to fly to a war zone to make a difference in the world. By identifying, exploring, and sharing their gifts, they receive more than they give!

Providence Health Systems

“One of the most dynamic speakers I have seen in my career from Massachusetts to Alaska! Amazing.” “No conference has ever made such an impact on me. Not only did LeAnn demonstrate her positiveness, but she showed me how to transmit it.”
