"I'm sorry, Mrs. Hart, we don't have any birth records for you." These were the words I heard over the phone when I was trying to locate a copy of my birth certificate for a new passport. "Have you checked with the Adoption Registry Office?" was the following question. Adoption? I was forty-one years old. I knew who my parents were. Why would someone suggest that I talk with an Adoption Registry Office? I just simply needed a copy of my birth certificate. That phone call led me on a new journey of discovery and secrets.
Who was I? Who was my birth mother? Did I have other siblings? What was my story? Baby Girl Murphy is my personal exploration of discovering my new identity and unveiling a secret that God had kept for 41 years. A secret so dear, yet so mysterious. "...Find out more..." were the words I kept hearing echo through my heart. Indeed I did find out more. More than I ever dreamed imaginable.
Meeting my birth mother for the first time.
**My story is available as a stand-alone keynote, fund raising events for Adoption services, Pregnancy Centers, and is always a session for a
ReInventing You event.
Below are videos from women's ministry events, TV interviews, and also the Our Jewish Roots television program. I would love to do a personalized video for your event or conference! Event graphics, logos, and photos are all available upon request.

"Kirsten Hart presents a relevant and God-centered message in such a heart-warming and engaging manner. Every woman in the room feels like they just sat down and had a heart-to-heart conversation with their best friend. And Kirsten always points them to their truly best friend, Jesus."
Northern California's Christian Women's Retreat Director
"It is with pleasure that I recommend Mrs. Kirsten Hart as a special guest at your church. Recently we had the privilege of having Mrs. Hart speak and sing at our Mother's Day Brunch. All attendees truly enjoyed her time of ministry.
Kirsten is a very professional singer and speaker with an obvious gifting from the Lord. Her authentic and transparent style of ministry made her relatable to all ages. Her message was delivered in an engaging manner that captivated her audience. I believe her ministry in song and by testimony honored the Lord.
Her positive first-rate ministry at our church is an indication of how she would minister to all congregations. Therefore, I highly recommend Kirsten to be given the opportunity to minister to your people."
"Kirsten spoke for our Women's Retreat recently and we fell in love with her and were deeply touched by her story and by the wonderful loving heart that is so evident in her speaking, her music, and her attitude.
Her message of God's amazing work in her life combined with the scripture she uses brings a powerful message of hope and possibility for a woman's life. Having Kirsten as a speaker and singer for any women's group will be a blessing for the women you are ministering to!"
Lebanon Church of the Nazarene
"Oh. My. Word. Kirsten Hart was so humorous, so relatable while delivering a strikingly powerful message through her unique testimony. Women left asking for more! She was a joy to work with, and I just want to hang out with her!"

When I speak, I also typically include some songs that tie in with my theme. Sound equipment needs are to have a hand-held microphone, stage monitor, and screen for any DVD's/videos that I may run. I don't use a powerpoint-type presentation, but would only need CD and DVD capabilities (files can be sent ahead of the event).
