Heather Lawless




Heather Lawless CEO and Founder of Reliance Ministries

Heather’s own life was in jeopardy when her mother was instructed by her doctors and family to abort because her body couldn’t survive a pregnancy. God had “dibs” on Heather’s life and by His grace and against all odds her mother chose life. In her late teen years Heather found herself going from relationship to relationship to find love and comfort. She was married, divorced, and facing her own unplanned pregnancy by the time she was 23. Heather chose life for her child and is now blessed with a beautiful 18-year-old daughter. After two marriages ending in divorce and then a single Mom of a 1-year-old, Heather made the choice to finally surrender all her Life to Jesus and from then on everything started to change.

Heather served as the Director of Development for a local Pregnancy Resource center for five years and her passion for helping women and families grew. Her desire to promise to be there for them and then “prove it” became like a fire in her heart. It was then that the vision for Reliance Ministries (a 4-part holistic model to help women and men facing unplanned pregnancies, possible STD’s, and unexpected life circumstances) was born.

Heather communicates with a fire and passion. She speaks boldly and unashamedly about her past and about God’s mercy and grace that has brought her to where she is now, she also communicates a fierce PRO-LOVE message, encouraging people to love first above all else. “Truth and Grace” is her motto because we need to have both…in equal parts, to make a difference.

Listening to Heather Lawless communicate with passion and precision about the value of life stirred my soul. She knows what she's talking about and is a fearless visionary for moms, babies, and families. She's doing "pro-life" the right way; Love, Compassion, Action. Like a pillar of fire in the wilderness, I believe Heather will lead many out of a culture of death and darkness and into the land of light and life.

I personally appreciate and can relate to Heather because of her transparency and humor. She has been well discipled and schooled in the scriptures which had the necessary foundation and strength to her testimonies and teaching. You will find her a delightful speaker."

"Heather, is a lioness for Christ. In that, she wears the strength of the Lord, as she roars out his messages. What God has placed on Heather’s heart, as passions, she jumps in - feet first. She has a very whimsical way of portraying how, in circumstances with her neck just above water, she treads and stays afloat. Another wonderful part about hearing her speak is that she speaks of her realness. Any issue that is currently in her forefront, whether it be women issues, marriage challenges, saving babies, friendship circumstances, or relationship tests, she shares freely with the confidence of the Lord. Those audiences might be family, social medial, work environments, church bodies, or speaking audiences. Heather is ‘Pro-Jesus' and 'Pro-life'! She loves Jesus and she loves life! I believe, that is why, she is such a tremendous advocate for Pro-life. The number of young women that have received Jesus’s love, through Heather and her programs, are countless. Heather writes out the plan God places on her heart, for each speaking engagement. She comes prepared. She does her homework and she always brings truth to the stage. With that said, God finds a unique way to bring humor into Heather’s speeches and interactions. I see the Joy of the Lord in Heather. I am confident her audiences do as well."

Heather has a fearless drive to serve the women who are unseen, underserved and unheard. She is pioneering change not only in her community but throughout the nation. She is personable, funny, and bold. Her spark will ignite a fire in your audience to do something, say something and be something. Heather served at our ProLife Women's Conference by sharing her vision to duplicate the Hope Model across the country. She's not a taker, she's a giver - she's stewarding what God has given her by building His Kingdom and she's determined to do it one heart at a time. Her passion for life is contagious - and that's something we all want to spread right now!

— Pam Whitehead, ProLove Ministries

"Heather Lawless is a throwback to the early advocates in the pregnancy care center movement. Heather honors the past by pioneering innovation in her holistic approach to serving womenat Reliance. Nowhere do we honor the past more than by progress. I was struck by her passion the first time we met, and it has been a privilege to count her as a fellow advocate in this most noble cause. She has a remarkable testimony that allows her to empathize with the women that she serves at Reliance. Her story and gift of speaking will be a blessing to your organization and event."

— Jason Herring, President Right to Life of Idaho

"In a panic after my keynote had to back out, I got a message to Heather and she immediately helped calm my nerves. She didn't try to talk me into booking her, instead listened to what I wanted and assured me that God would provide the right speaker. After hearing my vision, Heather encouraged me and proceeded to tell me how she could speak the word that I needed/desired for my conference. Within minutes we had it all worked out. Heather continued to stay in touch with me, pray for me and even helped promote the event. The conference was for single moms…Heather spoke a very timely message that was raw but covered in redemption and grace of God. She gave hope and inspired everyone there. After the conference, I even had married women that were there serving, who told me that they got so much from Heather's message! Heather was on point, on time and full of hope! I would encourage anyone to book her!"
