Breakaway: Kay Rizzo
Girls can’t be preachers! Or so six-year-old Kay was told. If she couldn’t be a preacher, the child decided to become a teacher. “Teachers talk almost as much as preachers,” she reasoned. For Kay, God’s plan included marriage and motherhood, classroom teaching, and the writing her first book. The book paved the way to the pulpit. Kay reminds, “Only God knows what’s around the next bend in your life. Never sell Him short.”
Chaplain Terry talks to writer, speaker and storyteller, Kay Rizzo whose practical and uplifting messages burst with joy and praise. She is in demand at retreats, conferences and convocations throughout the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, and Australia. Her love for travel and adventure is evident in her motto, “Send ticket; will travel.” A graduate of CLASS (Christian Leaders and Speaker’s Seminars, Inc.), she served on their West Coast teaching staff for ten years.
Since publishing her first book, Kay has authored 60 more and 1000+ articles. A biography I WILL DIE FREE remained on the publisher’s bestseller list for 10 years and has recently been re-released. Rebecca’s Crossing, volume eight of her family saga, the Serenity Inn Series, was released in 2011.
New and exciting discoveries await Kay, as she tests the power of e-booking on the Internet and blogging on her web site. “I never imagined blogging could be so much fun,” she quips.
Kay resides with her husband and business partner, Richard, in California’s San Joaquin Valley. Her greatest riches include her hubby of 40+ years; her two daughters, two sons-in law, two grandsons and a cat named Pepsi.
