Literacy - Reading Changes Lives and the World! - A simple promise from the prophet, Gordon B. Hinckley, precipitated this presentation. Four things were outlined by President Hinckley, which if done by each family in the world, would turn society around within a generation or two. These four things are the basis of Candace's fireside or presentation. With 60% of all prison inmates functionally illiterate, and 85% of all juvenile delinquents functionally illiterate, Candace strongly feels that literacy plays a critical role in the salvation of mankind. Using information from the prophets, from the Department of Education and the National Endowment of the Arts, Candace lights a fire within the hearts of every listener as she encourages all of mankind to turn to literacy, instilling it within their lives and the fabric of their families once again.

Missions in Life - Promises Made Before We Came - Before we entered mortality, we knelt at the feet of our Heavenly Father and our Savior, Jesus Christ, and covenanted to accomplish the missions given us. When born into this world, the memory of those promises was erased, the knowledge, nor the commitment, were not. Candace goes through the steps we must take in life in order to have those missions revealed to us as well as accomplish those missions. Her undeniable testimony of Jesus Christ as the Savior of the World, of Heavenly Father as a loving father who wishes only to be reunited with His children and her knowledge of the gospel are used as the basis of this fireside.

My Father, My Patriot - My father, Fritz Hendrik Sluyter, spent the latter part of his life traveling from school to school and church to church, teaching of the greatness of the American Nation. Born in Amsterdam, Holland, he vividly recalled the day Hitler's armies invaded his homeland and all freedom ceased to exist. Since his death I have strongly felt the need to pick up the torch my father carried, to teach Americans of the great privilege, rights and responsibilities of being citizen of this great nation through sharing the experiences of his childhood.

Take America Back - Candace shares the experiences of her father's life, the history of America and her passion for this great nation to help others understand why the U.S. Constitution is the supreme law of the land and why the republic is a superior form government.

Triumphing Over Trials, Tragedies and Sorrow: Forged in the Refiner's Fire - As stories were gathered from across the nation, Candace and Elizabeth grew and were indelibly touched.
