The author of 2 dozen books and with a career that includes MGM and CBS, she knows first hand about meeting challenges head-on. Women find her talks empowering, men find them thought provoking. Men and women find courage and inspiration in her indefatigable spirit and warm wit.
"It is never too late to be what you might have been."
Whether it's a film or a women's conference, a faith-based group or a room filled with writers seeking advice and encouragement, Esther's warm and witty message - spoken with the authority of one who has overcome seemingly impossible obstacles - will inspire others to meet and conquer their own personal challenges through self-reliance and self-realization.
"Genuine. Mesmerizing. Articulate. Meet author-speaker Esther Luttrell. With empathy and easy conversation, her perception and keen insight will change your life.Esther's style simply sparkles."
Claire Applewhite, past Vice President Missouri Writers Guild
"Whether the subject is film and television production or her own life journey, Esther is an engaging and provocative speaker. I've witnessed her hold spellbound, for hours, audiences comprised of people of diverse social and cultural backgrounds. Audiences leave her talks energized by her personality, wit, warmth and sincere joy. There is no one other like her."
Frank Dooley, former Eastern North Carolina Film Commissioner
"I knew Esther was a great speaker the first time I heard her. As a Dale Carnegie instructor for twenty years, and a former member of the National Speakers Association, I've heard many who keep an audience entranced and many who are masters of their subjects. Esther is unusual in that she has both of these attributes to a high degree. Bring her in to speak at your conference. Your audience will love you for it."
Phil Kline, former Area Manager,
Dale Carnegie Courses, Lansing, MI

Esther is living her dream. Without returning to school, she went on to participate in a PhD grant at a major university, became a screenwriter, film
producer and director, and is the author of nearly 2 dozen published books. Her workshops on rebooting, rebuilding and rejoicing are carved from personal experience. She is the perfect example of what being extraordinary is about - personal triumph, achievements despite the odds, turning negatives into positives,
and inspiring others to reach their highest potential.
Thank YOU, Esther. What a fun presentation you presented. We heard many good reviews. I feel that paths cross for a reason and you certainly have brightened mine! The KMOM event was a success, seeing over 1,300 patients the two days. Thank you for being part of the efforts!

From "Reboot, Rebuild, Rejoice
REBOOT, REBUILD, REJOICE message to those whose heart has been broken by the death of a dear one: Your loved ones never leave you.
Sometimes life puts us in a position where we have to start again ... even when we don't want to.
BETWEEN HEAVEN and EARTH. Is it possible that sometimes we fail to recognize the signs of a loved one reaching out to let us know that death has no power to break the bond?
DEAR DEAN...LOVE, MOM. It took 13 years to gather the courage to write the book Esther's son was urging her to write. His message from the Other Side - "Go out and tell them, Mom. Life and love are eternal."
BETWEEN HEAVEN and EARTH. Where is heaven? Where is hell? Where are we in the universe's scheme of things? Are we, those of us on this planet, really the epitome of life?
