STEFANIE BOYCE

writer, speaker

Stefanie Boyce is a writer and speaker, best known for her unique perspective when it comes to difficult circumstances. She is no stranger to the pain and beauty of this world, and the tension that comes from living in the midst of both. Most importantly, she is a wife, mother of 3, and an inspiration to many. In the midst of the pain and suffering that comes from knowing you are going to lose two of your children to an incurable disease, which most people would consider their worst nightmare, we see Stefanie’s strength. And she will be the first to say that it comes from her faith and trust in Christ.

MACKENZIE CARTER

speaker, founder of Swordgirl Conference

Mackenzie Carter is wife to her best friend, Mark, a mother of five amazing kids, a pastor's wife to a church she loves, and a woman learning to courageously walk step-by-step in the grace of God. She is a writer and speaker with a love for God's Word and his people. She has been known as flail girl, sword girl, but most dear to her heart is God's girl. Mackenzie believes God has created us as women to not be passive and afraid, but to boldly use the sword of Truth to crash through lies, break strongholds, and push through the pain and insecurities that can hold us back. She believes we have the opportunity to live out our lives on purpose knowing God's great love for us and that He who is in us is greater than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4).  Mackenzie believes the strongest, most beautiful place to be is finding ourselves at the feet of Jesus, completely surrendered to Him, boldly going where He leads, and relentlessly pursuing Him.
