About Speaking Life

Pastor, Author,

Certified Coach & Speaker

"Be still, and know that I am God." Psalm 46:10 


As a mom, pastor, and one who has suffered panic attacks and body break down from stress and anxiety, Charity's continual journey is to honor and navigate feelings and her place in life. Charity is here to help you do the same.


Rev. Charity Goodwin holds the view that faith is to be practiced not just believed. As a follower of Jesus and minister of the gospel, her first ministry is as mom to Gabriel and Levi.


Charity is an ordained elder in the United Methodist Church. In addition to her role as Pastor of Spiritual Formation and Groups at The Gathering, she speaks, preaches and facilitates workshops on leadership, emotional intelligence, vulnerability and courage for Christians institutions or organizations. With degrees in journalism and divinity, she strengthens her ministry within in and beyond the walls of the church with credentials as a facilitator of Brené Brown’s research, a coach, practitioner and assessor of emotional intelligence. 


She’s spoken to both large and intimate groups in person, virtually, and on podcasts, 


Charity is author of GET UP: Unearthing Your Passion & Taking Brave Action in 50 Days and its facilitator guide, which she co-wrote with her mentee, Brittany Radford.
