Stefanie Boyce is a national speaker, spiritual director, and author of two Bible studies designed to help participants create space to be with God, and have deep conversations about what they are learning. She is best known for her perspective when it comes to finding beauty in difficult circumstances. In 2009, Stefanie and her husband got the news no parent wants to hear. Not one, but two of their children were diagnosed with a rare, genetic disorder, Sanfilippo Syndrome. Children progress until about the age of three, then slowly lose the ability to walk, talk, feed themselves, and eventually pass away. There is no treatment. No cure. Three years later, knowing the risks associated with having another child, they welcomed, their daughter,Elliotte and began a new part of the journey navigating typical and terminal, simultaneously. November 2017, Jayden (11), went home to be with the Lord and just eight months later, their daughter, Brooklyn (9), did too. Committed to thriving, not just surviving, the Boyce’s continue to navigate difficult new normals, always trusting God to reveal the beauty in the midst of such devastation. In Stefanie’s honest, real life approach that people have come to love, audiences have found encouragement, inspiration, and renewed hope. She speaks on a number of topics offering a redemptive perspective on suffering. Through creative teaching, Stefanie uses everyday items and stories to highlight God’s truth. In addition to speaking around the country, her work has been featured on The Mighty, other guest blogs, and Don’t Do This (https://www.amazon.com/Dont-Do-This-Learning-Screw-Ups/dp/1942145241) She has been a guest on Melissa Radke’s Podcast, Ordinary People, Ordinary Things, and is currently working on her first book. Stefanie enjoys connecting with people and holding space for people to grow ever closer to Jesus whether that is one on one through private spiritual direction, writing, teaching or training small groups, or keynoting an event. She is a wife, forever a mother of three, and dreams of a day she can have a little farmhouse with an old truck to call her own.
