This Redeemed Life loves partnering with churches, ministries, campus organizations and conferences around the globe. Marian’s had the privilege of speaking internationally with a wide-variety of topics and audiences. Below are a few kind words from some of our partners. 


As a women’s ministry director who plans an annual women’s retreat, it is always a challenge to find a retreat speaker who strikes just the right balance of leading our women to dig deeply into the “meat” of God’s word while also challenging them to apply it to their lives, allowing God’s living and active word to change who they are and the way they live.  In 8 years of overseeing our church’s women’s retreats, I have never experienced a retreat speaker who struck that balance quite as beautifully as Marian Jordan Ellis did!  Marian is not only a true Bible scholar, but she is also an authentic person with a sincere passion for her Savior that is absolutely contagious!  She has an amazing way of connecting with women, no matter where they are in their stages of life or spiritual maturity.  Here are just a few words that our retreat attendees used to describe Marian: “inspiring,” “energizing,” “dynamic,” “powerful,” “moving,” “challenging!”  God has gifted Marian in a unique and wonderful way, and the women of Frisco Bible were beyond blessed, challenged, and encouraged by our time with her!

We loved having Marian as our keynote speaker at Inspire 2018. Marian shares from a heart of transformation. She is not afraid to be real and vulnerable. As she shares her story, you will encounter God and His story. Marian has the ability to teach God’s Word in a way that makes sense so that application can take place in your daily life. You will be blessed and encouraged by Marian and her ministry, Redeemed Girl.

Finding a speaker than can relate to women from age thirteen to one hundred and three, plus one that can speak into the lives of those who don’t know the Lord as well as those deeply rooted in their faith is a difficult task…but we did it! We found Marian Jordan-Ellis. She’s a gifted speaker, both wise and current; serious about teaching the Word, but totally able to fill a room with laughter. What an amazing gift God has entrusted Marian with. We were so blessed and thankful to have had her here at our Women’s Oikos Event and hope to have her back someday soon!

We love Marian Jordan! She was a valuable asset to our WE Weekend! She brought a strong challenge to our women and delivered God’s message in a straightforward, honest and sometimes hilarious way. She spoke the truth in love (and at times in your face) which is exactly what we needed. All women related to her personal application of Biblical principles and learned valuable life lessons that we can apply to our own lives. We can’t wait to get her back to Prestonwood!

Debbie Stuart
Director of Women’s Ministry Prestonwood Baptist Church

Drawing from her vast Biblical knowledge and practical life experience, Marian is a masterful communicator of God’s Word. She has the unique ability to build a bridge to her audience and meet women right where they are with the hope and peace that are found in Christ. Marian is vivacious, passionate, and relevant –a speaker that you want to hear again and again!

Jana Lohse
Director of Women's Ministry, Second Baptist Church Houston

Marian speaks to the heart of women. She understands their desires and dreams, but always points them to Jesus Christ and His word.

I recently attended your Radiant seminar. Honestly I never knew what it meant to be loved by God. I’ve been very involved with church off and on since I was younger, one youth group to another….but have been disillusioned by it in the past for various reasons. Sure, I knew God loved me, I saw it in Scripture over and over, heard it in sermons, etc. But, the significance of the Cross and His love was never clarified to me before now– with your help I was able to get past a huge roadblock- you truly have a gift.


Thank you for what you are doing! Your testimony inspires me and helps me understand that God can redeem me too.


There’s no timing like God’s timing. I’m so glad I was there last week to hear Marian Jordan’s message on God being our ultimate Love. I felt God speaking right to my heart.


Your message was truly inspirational and I enjoyed listening to your story. I have not laughed like I did last Wednesday night in a long time. I’m very grateful.


You are an amazing speaker and I enjoyed listening to you a lot! It’s been a long time since a speaker has gotten my attention like you did. I’m so glad I got a chance to hear you!


Girls’ Night Out was a huge win for both our schools. The event sparked discussions all across campus. Some girls heard the story of redemption for the first time and others are finding hope in the midst of pain for the first time.

You reinforced what I needed to hear, not the lies that the world tells us. It was finally TRUTH.
