KELLY NIETO is the girl next-door, the neighbor who always has time to chat with you over a cup of coffee. But she’s also the executive producer, creator and songwriter of Cross and Light, an international critically acclaimed musical of Christ’s Passion to Pentecost, now on tour and in development as a movie with Michael Omartian, multiple Grammy Award Winning producer, composer, and artist.
Kelly is also a professional speaker, popular humorist and author of three books - almost complete:
1. My Holy-mess - One Crazy, Beautiful Journey of Faith over Fear (the conversion story behind the show)
2. Stop Chasing Happiness – You’re Making Yourself Miserable
3. God’s Greatest Weapon is YOU! The Power of Your Sacred Story
As a convert to Christianity, Kelly loves sharing her conversion story from life on the road as an agnostic New Ager, Miss America Runner-Up and Talent Winner and opening act for Garth Brooks. After a life-changing vision in 2000, Kelly was inspired to write and produce Cross and Light. (She had never written music prior to this vision.)
Kelly’s amazing sense of humor and “spunk and spirit” has always remained at the center of everything she does.
“Through LAUGHTER and TEARS Kelly teaches us how God works miracles through each of us! Kelly uses her sense of humor to remind us what a great gift we have in our Catholic faith!” –Jennie McBride
Kelly is the mother of five awesome kids and has been married to her husband, Dominic for over 26 years.
Kelly’s a woman on a mission. It’s not an overstatement to say that you’ve never met anyone quite like Kelly!

How does God see you? When you think of yourself, what do you think? Are the answers to these two questions very different? If so, why is that? Are we too hard on ourselves or do we care too much about what others think of us?
The opinions of others may have a powerful impact on our self image until we understand the worth God has proclaimed over us! We can walk in the reassurance that God's undying grace provides us with an unending abundance of emotional, relational, and spiritual strength and well being. We must allow perceptions of ourselves to be based on God's visions of us! He sees and knows us as He made us!
Only through seeing ourselves through God's view can we become the women He intended us to be. We must know and believe...we are daughters of God, the king, and loved beyond what we can imagine! We are much more than beautiful... we are wonderfully made, much more than likeable... we are deeply loved, and we are much more than fine... we are princesses!
This year's conference will be on Friday, September 27th and 28th, 2019 at the McNease Convention Center, 501 Rio Concho Drive, San Angelo, TX.
Our speakers are outstanding again! They are Judy Hehr, Kelly Nieto, and Edward Sri. They will provide us with the spiritual and emotional confidence to see us as God sees us. Please see speaker information below and visit their websites for more details about books and ministries they have founded or support.
