Responses from Stephanie’s visit at JUMP Boise

“Stephanie Ellison traveled all the way from Texas to Idaho to share her message of hope and courage to people in our community who have experienced trauma, abuse, and neglect, or who help and support those who have. She is a beacon of hope to those who feel that there is no way out and no way forward. She speaks from the heart and from a wealth of experience. She knows the pain firsthand and can comfort, console, educate, and inspire. Her amazing path to overcome many obstacles to obtain an education has allowed her to work as a behavioral specialist and to counsel countless individuals who are working through their own anger, tragedy, and loss. I would recommend Stephanie as a skilled communicator and a highly professional, yet warm and relatable individual who can touch lives and hearts and truly inspire hope, change and growth in even the most challenging situations.”

“Stephanie was an inspiring and engaging speaker! She shared some very difficult experiences from her life, but most importantly, she spoke about how she overcame those trials and also gave ideas and encouragement to help others overcome difficulties they face in their lives. It was an evening well-spent! My whole family is very grateful for her vulnerability to share her story and the uplifting messages she left with us.”

“A HUGE thank you to Woodgrain for hosting our event at JUMP Boise this past Saturday night! We SO appreciate you!

Having Stephanie Ellison, a motivational speaker for Impact Truth, come speak was a joy and privilege beyond compare. We needed more hours to hear from her and learn from her story.

Her message spoke to those from very hard places. Believe in yourself, believe that life can get better, believe that you are not alone, believe that good things can come from very difficult things, believe that people around you love you and care. They won’t do it for you…but they will do it with you. It will take work, but it can be done!

I also LOVED her message of focusing on all that is right, choosing gratitude instead of choosing resentment, victimhood and anger!

Stephanie is authentic. She has walked what she has taught and is living proof that it can be done!

One step at a time, day by day….you got this!”

“Stephanie’s story must shouted from the rooftops! Stephanie’s story is filled with heart-wrenching struggle, disappointment and tragedy. It is equally filled with achingly poignant triumphs, victories and joy. The hook that underscores her story, that turns all of that tragedy into victory is … choice! She chose to leave it all behind, physically, emotionally, mentally. Is she cured? No, I don’t think so. But does she choose healing over suffering, empowerment over captivity? Yes. She does. What an inspiration to everyone!”
