“Steve was so relatable as he spoke to the young families in our church about ‘How To Raise Your Children Without Raising Your Voice.’ He challenged us to remember the attachment needs of our kids by staying “in tune” and connecting with them even during times of misbehavior. Our group could identify with the real-life scenarios that Steve used which made for a lot of laughs. We walked away that night encouraged with a deeper understanding of how we can be more intentional in our actions as parents. We look forward to having him back for the third time!”
Kristi Cox, M.O.P.S. Coordinator, Richfield Community Church.

You are such an amazing, dynamic and funny speaker. Thanks!!”

“Steve’s straightforward, common sense advice on discipline was a great help for so many of our moms. Steve offers advice on not only how to strike the important balance between firm and loving discipline, but why it’s so important. He helped us all see the big picture when it comes to raising our children and equipping them to head out into the world as respectful, self-assured, well-adjusted young people.”

The mothers at my table were excited to utilize the strategies Steve touched upon at home and share that information with their spouses. The advice he shared was relative, practical and encouraging and presented with enthusiasm and humor. Many of us walked out ready to give our spouse a hug, or ask for one!”
Megan Reece, MOPS Speaker Coordinator, Presbyterian Church of the Master, San Clemente, CA.

Even now, days after the event, we are hearing how moms are implementing Steve’s strategies and sharing what they learned with others outside of our group. Steve is well-spoken, knowledgeable, and relatable. We look forward to having him every time he speaks to our moms!”
