I am so excited about the idea of coming to speak to you and your group! Thank you so much for thinking of me! There’s nothing I love more than meeting new friends face to face, hearing their stories, and sharing some of mine.
I heard a quote once that says, “Be who you needed when you were younger,” and that is exactly who I try to be for the women (and occasionally, men!) I speak to and write for. What I needed when I was younger was a big sister or a best friend just a few steps ahead of me in life to walk with me, guide me, and cheer me on. That’s what I try to be for my community online, and for the communities I’m fortunate enough to meet in person!
My speaking style is incredibly relational and full of stories, and my goal is to leave the audience with the reassuring knowledge that they’re not alone in what they’re going through, as well as tangible steps for how to take God up on the promises He has for these areas of our lives.
What areas? I’m glad you asked! I’m available to speak on the following topics:
+ Why life with God is the most fulfilling adventure we could ever embark on. I tell The Lipstick Gospel story, share what life can look like when we’re truly surrendered to God (Spoiler alert: It’s ANYTHING but boring!), and I share how your community can jump into the adventure too!
+ Singleness and dating as Christian women. How to transform a season of waiting into a season of passion, purpose, and preparation!
+ How to form deep, life-giving friendships as women. One of my core beliefs is that life is so much better (and more fun!) when we have best friends to share it with. The problem is, those friendships can be so hard to find and to form. But they don’t have to be!
+ Our identity in Christ. How to translate the truth of who God says you are from head knowledge into something that makes you stand taller and walk more confidently as the woman He created you to be.
+ How to use your God-given story, talents, and influence to make the world better though a blog or an online small business. I’ll teach the nitty gritty of what it takes to get started, and how to help it grow!
What some wonderful people have to say…
We were blessed to have Stephanie be our guest speaker for our National Convention in February at Estes Park in Colorado. I thought she would be good, but that was an understatement!!! God spoke through her and truly touched the hearts of all the members in attendance. Through her speech, she was showing the love of God in a greater way and in a different light then what our girls were used to hearing. It couldn’t have come in a better time. We are VERY blessed to have had her share her heart and impact our girls in the magnitude that it did. A true blessing!!
I HIGHLY recommend Stephanie to speak at any ladies youth conferences, college conferences, high school youth groups and small groups. Her love of God shows through every word she speaks, and her ability to be vulnerable with her testimony makes it more real for young girls to relate. Did I mention she is also very funny!!

I absolutely love Stephanie’s approach to topics that can be difficult to talk about. Her honesty and courage blow me away, and she’s helped me realize that a lot of the things I struggle with are pretty normal; they’re nothing to be ashamed of. Knowing that has let me be more real not only with myself, but with the people who are close to me.
