About Our Speaker: Frankie DeMelo


Frankie DeMelo was raised in Louisiana on the Northshore with her three sisters. She attended St. Bonaventure University in NY and graduated with a bachelor degree in Fine Arts. After living in NY for several years following graduation, Frankie moved home and started developing a career in art; teaching and selling local artists work as well as her own. She soon met her husband, Jason DeMelo, and they were married in 2006. Since then she and Jason have welcomed 7 children ranging in age from 15 to 1 yr. old. They reside in Covington La.

Frankie says she has been immensely blessed with the beautiful calling to motherhood and homeschooling and is doing what she always dreamed of doing… being a stay-at-home mom with the opportunity to paint and sell her work when life permits.

With full hands and full heart, she is thankful for the opportunity to share how God has transformed her faith throughout her life, and most dramatically through the experience of raising her children. Jason and Frankie are “raising an army for God” and are committed to enabling their tribe to be “world changers, life makers, sorrow takers, and joy makers” in Jesus’ name!


Since the day is designed to speak to the hearts of women, free of distractions, it is respectfully requested that young children under the age of 14 not be in attendance.
