Jo Ann Miller, OSF Strengths Development Center, former 40-year Gallup employee – "The Gifted Journey, is an amazing contribution! As Stephanie shares from her own gifted journey, she will lead you to discover your own 'conscious competence' at whatever time in your life you meet her invitation. When individuals truly work in their 'strengths zone,' it feels 'just right to them and others like it too.' One can feel Stephanie's joy and pleasure—not only in her own life's multifaceted talent discoveries, but in her day-to-day experience of living them out. Walk with Stephanie through her 5-D strategy for life's journey. Find a GIFT on every page as you 'learn, love and live' your gifted journey.”
Rick Fersch, former president and CEO of Eddie Bauer – "The 'WOW' moment in this book is when you recognize that each day is a gift waiting to be opened and discovered. I strongly subscribe to Stephanie's thesis that our life journey should be used to uncover and emphasize our strengths—and to build upon these gifts for a more fulfilling and promising future. Executing this 5 stage process will allow us to live the life that was always intended just for us. I was a business leader for over 30 years, and as president and CEO of Eddie Bauer, I suffered a life threatening stroke that changed my world and led me to embrace these stages. Using this process allowed me to discern how best to change my course, and how to apply my gifts to the faith world as Executive Director of Stewardship and Development at the Archdiocese of Seattle. Through living my own life journey, I can readily embrace and endorse Stephanie's well laid out process. It is both refreshing and innovative—building on widely known and successful concepts for helping to find your true self. Her unique and easy to read format allows you to execute action points that help support your master life plan.”
