Religious and Spiritual Organizations

...a strong testimate of faith

Kathy is often invited to speak for religious or spiritual groups. Her magnificent tales often are the catalyst for renewed faith in her audience. Through her story, Kathy opens her heart to share the things that have made her the person she is today; giving her audience a unique perspective into life’s triumphs and tribulations. She promotes forgiveness, trust, faith, gratitude, acceptance, and better self-awareness; her message built around her own battles with each. Kathy’s topic for religious or spiritual groups include, but are not limited to:

  • Acceptance
  • Choosing your words wisely
  • God’s sense of humor
  • Gratitude
  • Grievance
  • Eliminating fears and overcoming obstacles
  • Empowerment
  • Faith
  • Forgiveness
  • Know that you are never alone
  • Self-esteem
  • Self-awareness
  • Self-growth
  • The human spirit
  • Trust


“I am so blessed to have met you. You will never understand what your words did to me. Majority of your stories related to me so much. I almost felt as if you were talking directly to me. My mother had cancer. I absolutely HATED God for doing that to my mother that was five years ago. I don't think I had forgiven God. I had actually lost faith. I honestly believed "God" wasn't real, until you came and shared your story. YOU made me find my faith again. To me that's a debt I will never be able to pay back”

“Happy Birthday Kathy! I now know the day an angel was born! You are a blessing to every in your presence. Your unconditional love towers over other's judgement and closed mindedness ;) haha, and your use of humour lights up the darkest of places! I wish you the best day and year to come that you could possibly imagine. Filled with laughter, joy, excitement, and fulfillment! Love you Miss Buckley! ;)”

“Today, though, I feel you brought out the real importance. Something that really made me think is what you said about God. That he does not control this earth, he just put you on it so you can make the most out of it. Before I heard you say that I always thought, why? Why would he do this to me, why can't I do it this and why can't I do that. But it all makes sense from what you said. I am the one holding myself back. I want to take what you said today and change the person I have molded into, because I know I could create a better life for myself, and a fuller life. And I want to be able to appreciate my family more because your right, they do not owe me anything. And to think of all the things they have done for me with nothing in return really hurts. There is so much to think about after today. Thank you.”
“I want to extend my appreciation to you for your contribution in making our NAFIC convention such a success. I was unnecessarily concerned about the success of the convention. To be honest the entire convention exceeded my expectation, and your presentation made it happen. Thank you.”

“I live and thrive in the world of education. In fact, my "product" is education: with over 100 Paul Mitchell Schools across the United States and over 16,000 students attending our schools, I am very aware of what does and does not work. Over the past 25 years, I have sought out the best of the best in both content and presentation style. Kathy Buckley has ranked at the highest of that list for several years, which is why I continue to bring her back to my schools and events over and over again. Not only that, but I have pleaded with friends in other companies to bring Kathy in for their events, and I now reign as "king" in their worlds for making such a recommendation, because Kathy is nothing less than brilliant, brilliant, brilliant! If you turn her over to your team or audience, you only need to sit back and let her work her magic and love. One more very important thing about Kathy: I love speakers who can deliver a powerful message on stage, but I always watch to see their performance "off stage," too. Are they credible? Do they behave with integrity and practice what they preach? Do they make everyone around them feel loved, safe, and included, no matter the role they play? Well, rest assured that Kathy is and does all of these things. Her sincere love for every member of her audience - whether it's 30 people or 3,000 people - makes Kathy Buckley one of the most influential women in my life.”
