“Stefanie Boyce embodies what it means to flourish where you are planted. She will make you laugh and cry, all while providing practical points of dealing with life when it doesn’t go as planned. We highly recommend her for any group in need of encouragement!”
JEN G and DINA G.-MOPS Coordinators
“Stefanie was a fantastic speaker at our youth group retreat. She was fun. She was engaging. She was challenging. She helped us dive into the deep end as a group. Students have talked about her non-stop since the retreat was over. Her talks come up in small group discussions to this day. Stefanie is great at coming in and helping YOU do what YOU feel you need… she wants the group to better than how she found it. She wants to help you take the ball down the field in your ministry. I highly recommend her as a speaker. Stefanie has a amazing story and amazing insight into the Christian faith, and more people need to hear her!”
