Stefanie is a wife, a mother of three, and holds a degree in Biblical Studies from Colorado Christian University. Her passion to teach Biblical Truths has collided with her God given purpose to connect with others, sharing the love in which Jesus has for them. She harbors a heart to specifically minister to women and teen girls in the arena of domestic abuse and human trafficking. Through the founding of her own ministry B.I.G. (Believing in Grace) she has taught weekly Bible studies to teen girls who have escaped the life of sexual exploitation and finds solace in mentoring victims of abuse, seeing them to a life of complete restoration in Christ.

Stefanie grew up playing the guitar and enjoys spending quality time with her family and close friends. She holds a true adoration for the art of writing and her greatest desire is to eventually become a published author.

Exodus 14:14 “The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still” (NIV) is a verse she is committed to live each day by.

“When you have personally experienced the transforming grace and love of Jesus, it is a gift too profound, to simply keep to yourself.” -Stef

Catharine has been married to the love of her life for 18 years and has spent the last 6 years as a stay-at-home mom to her precious 6-year-old son. She grew up in the Midwest, but relocated to the Phoenix area in 2006 and has grown to love the desert (though admittedly, not the heat). She is an avid reader and “journal-er” and never ceases to be amazed at how the fingerprints of God’s plan are constantly revealed through even the simplest of life’s experiences.

loveSTRONG Ministries

“I want with every single fiber of my being to be one of those self-assured, confident, bold women of God who knows exactly who she is, and walks in the freedom of knowing how loved she is, and how precious she is, how validated she is.” – Mandy Hale

Those may not be my exact words, but those words describe me to a tee.  I want to be that woman, but I am not.  However, I am on my way to becoming her.  Step by step.  Day by day. For me, the beginning of this journey to becoming a bold and confident woman of God started with one encounter from one of the women of loveSTRONG Ministries.  You see, I moved to Arizona from Illinois in the summer of 2016 after feeling a sharp and distinct kick in the butt from up above.  God had pulled me away from my home and guided me to the west valley of Phoenix where I was led straight to this ministry and into the arms of the women who lead it.  I had a whole life and future planned in Illinois.  I had great friends, a great job with opportunities to grow, and the potential for a relationship with a great guy.  But God had MORE in store for me.  And as I continue to pray for God to reveal His plan for me (in His time, never in mine), I am blessed and honored to say I have the opportunity to be a part of loveSTRONG Ministries.  As a single woman, I have struggled tremendously with finding my identity in this world.  This ministry has graciously shown me that my true identity is only rooted in our Heavenly Father – the source of all creation.

I am a Registered Nurse of almost ten years, a daughter to two amazing parents, a sister to one brother, a sister-in-law, an aunt to a beautiful niece and nephew, and a friend to many.  I am embracing this current single season of my life, and I rest in the fact the God can do abundantly more with my life that I can do myself.

I attended college for almost two years before entering the work force.  I never finished my journalism degree mainly due to my own choices.  In 1978 my job location changed from the corporate work place to raising five children in a rural community.  I survived and by God’s grace, they did, too. My trial-and-error method of parenting was replete with mistakes and successes.

Some of my past “job” titles have been cashier, transcriptionist, church secretary, VBS Director, Children’s Ministry Director, Women’s Ministry Co-Director and Guatemala Mission Team Leader.  I’ve managed my architect husband’s office since 1988 and travel as often as possible.   I am the blessed – and much more relaxed – Mimi of twelve grandchildren.

Although I began following Jesus in 1979, it wasn’t until my mid-fifties that I understood grace and freedom.  Until then, my life was based on rules.  By studying the scriptures, listening to godly speakers and reading books by respected Christian authors, God freed me from the chains of legalism.

I believe God has given me a wide range of life experiences, thoughts and words to inspire others to live grace-filled, grace-giving lives.  My desire is to Inspire others – one word at a time.

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.  I Peter 4:10
