Michele’s strong name recognition from her CCM accomplishments, radio hits in the 80’s and 90’s, her women's Clothesline conference, her new CD, You Untangle Me, and her new book, Untangled: The Truth Will Set You Free, pave the way for sold out speaking engagements at CPC Benefits nationwide. Her honesty, humor and music on stage breaks through the fear of “getting real” in areas people may not know how to access.
Michele shares the moving story of her own unplanned pregnancy at the age of 17 and explains the sense of entrapment she felt at putting her youth and promising music career on hold to raise a child. In 1973, Roe vs. Wade had just enabled young women the right to abort without even informing their parents. Before hushed audiences, Michele tells about her choice to abort her pregnancy at the advice of a medical staff person. She describes how the nurse glorified how abortion would remove her “problem” and she could go on as if the pregnancy had never happened and no one would ever have to know.
What the nurse failed to share was the physical and emotional scarring that Michele would bear for the rest of her life. Moreover, neither she nor the father of the baby would ever be able to have another child.
Let Michele Pillar Take Your PRC Fundraiser Event to a New Level
The following is from an email sent by the Director of the Pregnancy Resource Center in Wisconsin to her Board of Directors after Michele spoke and gave the appeal for their fundraiser:
"Thank you again for being present and a very supportive board last night at our Banquet of Life! I just finished counting the money and pledges from last night. I believe the results are spectacular and we had a successful event. One time gifts the night of totaled $25K. New monthly pledges totaled over $800/month for a total of $10,000.00/year! (our biggest response ever in this capacity during an appeal!)"
"I should've mentioned this last night, but note that there were numerous grown children (now young adults) belonging to parents of our original steering committee and board present last night , and many of them are now GIVING on their own. One in fact gave $1,000! This is legacy at it's finest, when you raise children to have a passion in something they watched their parents give time and talents to. I love to see how God's plan for multiplication works on so any levels."
She went on to tell Michele, "I cannot thank you enough for all you are and all you do to support PRC's like ours. Small town America, and yet the need is great. I agree ... the connection ... your ministry to ours, your family to ours, your heart to ours, is profound!"
The following was sent by the Director of a Women's Resource Center in Florida to Michele after the event:
"You blessed us all so very much. We raised $55,000! Woo Hoo! That is the most we have ever raised. Plus we gained $2800 in month support! It is amazing how God moves. The event was perfect all the way around."
"If I were telling someone about what happens when I speak at a PCR banquet I think the strongest comment would be about the appeal at the end of the evening. I'm comfortable taking the appeal but either way, consistently, Directors tell us that they receive considerably higher totals of donations and auto-monthly-payment commitments (by quite a large margin) than in previous years of banquets. Obviously, I am grateful every single time this happens. I pray for high returns every single time." ~ Michele Pillar
Michele Pillar may be a GRAMMY-nominated singer who’s shared a stage with Billy Graham, performed for royalty and speaks nationwide at Pregnancy Resource Center (PRC) events and Women’s Conferences. Her 2016 book release: Untangled: The Truth Will Set You Free (BroadStreet Pub) is a groundbreaking title that brings healing to whomever picks it up. But she isn’t just a celebrity lending her voice to the Pregnancy Resource Center's cause. It’s a deeply personal issue for her because she lived through the experience as a scared teen and was left with haunting regrets. Michele knows all too well what can happen when help isn’t readily available or false ideas of female “empowerment” lead to empty promises and agonizing remorse. So, she speaks out to applaud pro-life supporters and fully understands what’s at stake.
A veteran of both Care Net and Heart Beat National Conferences, Michele has been a keynote speaker at PCR fundraisers since 2009. She’s a powerful pitch woman, driving home what happens when women don’t find a caring Pregnancy Resource Center in time. You can’t put a price on a human life, but it’s clear that without proper funding lives are lost.
Although her credentials are compelling, what stirs hearts the most is Michele’s very personal song, Found, which recounts her dramatic dream of being carried to Heaven to meet her unborn son. Accompanied by the track’s stirring music video, she ends every event with this powerful testimony ringing in people’s ears before the plea for support. This presentation consistently results in donations exceeding projected goals, allowing Pregnancy Resource Centers across the country to keep their doors open and provide life-saving services.
Michele has strong convictions about “the appeal.” She’s extremely comfortable taking the appeal alone or with a staff member, if you’d like her to. Michele would be happy to talk with you about it, whether you choose her to be your Keynote speaker, or not.
“It’s the most sacred moment of the night and it breaks my heart when the appeal is not given the care and skill needed to yield the best possible return.” - Michele
“Michele’s vulnerability leads by example like no speaker I’ve ever seen.”
"The foe is silence. So, I speak. To individuals, to groups, to a broken world, and I tell the truth, everything, especially that Jesus' obedient, sacrificial act is greater than any act or deed I have ever done, greater than what any of us has ever done. And because I speak, this foe has no choice but to run and hide ... back to the darkness, back to the deafening silence, to a place where there are no children playing, no babies singing, no mothers healing, and no life everlasting. This foe has not place where everything lost is found." ~ Michele Pillar
