Collene Borchardt is a speaker, blogger, and guest writer who helps women experience God amidst suffering. A chronic illness warrior, wife, and mother of three adventurous children and three crazy dogs, Collene will inspire you to see the good, lean into hope, and live for more in your walk with Jesus.

Speaking Topics:

  • Trusting God’s Plan When We Don’t Understand-It can be hard to trust God when we don’t understand how our circumstances could fit into God’s bigger plan. This is exactly how Collene felt when she was first diagnosed with a chronic illness. Join her in finding hope and encouragement in this message on learning to trust God in the waiting!  
  • Finding Diamonds: How God Uses Our Suffering For Good-In times of suffering, we long for hope. And through her experience with a chronic illness, Collene knows firsthand how God can work for good even in the things that don’t feel so good. This message will encourage and inspire you to trust God even when life is hard. 

***Due to a chronic illness I am unavailable from 1-3 pm every day. Thank you for understanding!***


We were so blessed to have Collene Borchardt speak at our recent woman’s conference. Not only was she extremely easy to work with, thorough and accommodating of all we asked of her, she also delivered a powerful message to our attendees. In the weeks that followed our conference, we got wonderful feedback about how engaging Collene was with the audience and how moving her words were! If you are looking for a professional and passionate speaker for your event I highly recommend Collene Borchardt!

I heard Collene at a recent conference on zoom. Her testimony was amazing. Her williness to share and to answer questions. Her Love for the Lord shows.

-Brenda Young, Attendee

I had the pleasure of being a speaker alongside Collene at a women’s conference last fall and I was blown away by her testimony and her heart. She has such a beautiful way of sharing God’s Word so it is easy to understand. I’m always so blessed when I get the chance to hear Collene speak. Her gift of speaking and her ability to allow the Holy Spirit to speak through her is so very powerful. Thanks, Collene for sharing your gift with me and the world. I’m truly blessed by you!
