Keynote Presentation: "No More Perfect"

Presented By: Jill Savage

There is simply no such thing as a perfect life. And there are no such things as perfect kids, perfect homes, perfect bodies, perfect marriages, or even perfect meals.

With refreshing honesty, Jill Savage exposes some of her own shortcomings with the goal of helping us shelve our unrealistic expectations and unfair comparisons in life.

This message will help you…


  • Change your unrealistic expectations to realistic expectations in order to better manage everyday challenges.
  • Give grace and love to those around you even in difficult life circumstances.
  • Increase your confidence when you resist the urge to compare your insides to other people’s outsides.
  • Discover the beauty of grace when you stop judging yourself and stop judging others.
  • Find freedom from disappointment when you embrace your real family, your real challenges, and your real, but imperfect, life.
