Mary Kennedy's belief ...


"When we enter this world, we have no idea what life has in store for us, but we all have a purpose for being here. Although, our journeys will vary, I do believe that we are all connected and that you will be able to see yourself in “my journey” to discovering my own purpose," writes Mary Kennedy in Chapter 1 of her book, You Will See God’s Miracles If Only You Believe!


Former Champion Toastmaster International Speaker, Mary Kennedy uses her proficiency as a professional motivational speaker to compose her words in such a way to bring encouragement and conviction to others, stimulate a spiritual awakening and overcome life challenges.


Mary Kennedy is the proud recipient of the 2011 California Woman of the Year award and a 2-time Library of Congress’ Outstanding Professional nominee in 2012 and 2013. She is also the former CEO of the Lathrop District Chamber of Commerce and a recognized, motivational speaker.

Book Bio


Former Champion Toastmaster International Speaker, Mary Kennedy’s life, seems to be immersed with almost daily supernatural events that some only dream of!

Born with a prophetic gift, Kennedy delights us with miracle-rich stories from early childhood to the present. Take for instance, young Mary at the racetrack with her stepdad; she picked all the winning horses! Or the time she alerted a flight attendant that something was wrong with the jet, and there was! And what about the time she told cancer to turn around “in five days” and it did!

Kennedy’s book is alive with attitude, moxie and the unapologetic conviction that God is her fortress.
