I’ve been following Stephanie’s journey for over four years, from when she published her first book, The Lipstick Gospel. I have admired her ever since for her open, honest and heartfelt communication style.
Stephanie is an author, podcaster and speaker who is passionate about helping women nurture their most important relationships.
Whether it’s your relationship with yourself, a significant other, your friends, God, family or work, she is a compassionate guide cheering you on to look to truth and find self-confidence.

Stephanie’s podcast is called Girl’s Night, and that’s definitely what this feels like—a good for the heart girl’s night chat with a friend. Enjoy!
