Luanne Botta is an author, Bible teacher, and speaker who brings the gospel to life through the Word and personal testimony. Her high-energy and joyful, encouraging spirit, bring an authentic transparency, making her an endearing and powerful speaker.
As a high school teacher at a private Christian academy for almost twenty years, Luanne found herself in a unique role, guiding hundreds of young people through God’s Word with her uncompromising, take-no-prisoners way of speaking the truth while still showing them unconditional love. Her passion was igniting them to live their lives with a higher standard than the culture around them.
From those years of teaching, Luanne has authored two books equipping high school teens on the godly truth of sexual integrity and character: Young Hearts, Pure Lives (for girls), and The Warrior Within (for guys). She challenges teens to raise the standard in their lives and stand firm against the culture around them that is spinning out of control.
Luanne has brought her passion to women’s ministry as well. She has over fifteen years of experience teaching the Word of God and facilitating women’s Bible studies. She is a sought after speaker for women’s events and retreats. She has started her own podcast with her friend, Mary Ann Crum, called "Unquenchable Hope," talking to women about the hope they have in Jesus through the challenges of life’s circumstances. She recently recorded a Podcast with Moms In Prayer International about her newest book Spiritual Warfare and The Armor of God, The Battle is Real…The Victory is Sure. This newest book highlights the vital importance of understanding spiritual warfare and how to fight it with the Armor of God for all audiences–men and women, teens and adults, individuals, church groups and Bible studies.
Luanne is available for seminars, retreats, chapels and conferences for women, teenage men and women, and also parents, bringing an anointing of the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Throughout her years of ministry, Luanne’s greatest joy…”to bring a voice of encouragement and hope to those who are looking for truth…and to walk humbly with my God”!
