“Moments of a Lifetime”:

Part comedy routine, part stroll down memory lane, this thirty-minute performance serves as the perfect meaningful entertainment for women’s events, and appeals to women of every age. A humorous and heartwarming walk through the key moments of a woman’s life, it is a one-woman multi-media show, written and performed by Elizabeth. It has been featured at several large Women’s Day and Mother’s Day events, inspiring crowds to mingle sentimental tears with their laughter. Elizabeth can conduct this performance, then address the audience on a spiritual topic.

“Moments of a Lifetime” has been the featured entertainment at church events in Chapel Hill, NC, Athens, GA, and Fort Lauderdale, FL.

“Moments of a Lifetime” Reviews:

Several years ago, our women’s ministry presented the drama written by
Elizabeth Thompson entitled, “Moments of a Lifetime.”  It was one of the
most impactful events in our women’s ministry, depicting the different
seasons of a woman’s life.  There were about 200 women gathered and not a
dry eye in the house!  “Moments of a Lifetime” captures the very heart and
life of a woman, as you recognize God’s purpose through each stage of life.
We definitely will present this drama again for our women!
