Featured Speakers and Guests

Music Man Nate

Shannon Bingham

Our reigning Mrs. Midwest International 2024, Shannon Bingham, is a married mother of three, an adoption advocate, keynote speaker, and an award winning philanthropist.

For 20 years she has co-owned Seven Salon + Boutique, is a national traveling educator, photographer, and is Vice-Chair of the DHHS Nebraska State Board.

As an adoptive mother, she has embraced adoption as her platform, however she is a strong voice for charities that are near and dear to her, such as Heart of a Child Minisitries, in which she has been a repeat guest speaker on adoption.

Nikki Schaefer

Nikki is the Founder and Executive Director of Heart of a Child Ministries™ and holds a masters’ degree in social work and art therapy. The ministry was inspired through her daughter Grace, when she was just seven years old, during a prayer experience on the Anniversary of Roe v Wade in 2012.

Nikki’s most important accomplishment is the work of her family. She and her husband, Bernie, Vice President of Development at Spirit Catholic Radio, are blessed to have six beautiful children, ages 8-24.

Jeremy Bowers

Jeremy and his wife Kathleen have always been open to life and have eight living children ages 1 to 14 years old, and three in Heaven. While pregnant with their sixth baby, Dominic, after having an ultrasound, they were told that there was something wrong with him and that he was “incompatible with life.” Abortion was mentioned as an option. Yet, the Bowers chose life and share their incredible journey of pregnancy, prayer, and the gift that Dominic’s life, and his spirit of purity and love, has been to their family and to so many others.
