Book Stacey

"You did a FANTASTIC job this morning. I have read your book, I have seen the movie, and I just love your story. It is so powerful. In reality though, when you choose a speaker, you never really know if he/she will be as good as you hope. You just have to go with your gut and trust that someone with such a wonderful uplifting story will be able to tell it in a way that captivates a crowd. And that you did! I don't think there was a dry eye in the place. We strive to make a difference for the women and girls in our community—to give hope where there is none, to provide leadership and guidance to those in need, and to change lives. You inspired folks to give back, to join us, to make that difference you spoke of so well. We raised more money this morning than ever before. Thank you for helping us do that; but, more importantly, thank you for sharing yourself with kids and families who have never felt such love and care. Always remember, YOU MATTER." -Orange County United Way

"Women Helping Women had an outstanding luncheon! The guests had an abundance of positive comments and Stacey was fantastic. She captivated the audience and took them from crying to laughing back to crying again throughout the whole speech. She’s simply the best—what a great speaker!" -Women Helping Women Fund – Tri Cities

"... One of the stars in my world of the most influential and important people I’ve come to know and admire is the highly respected and best selling author Stacey Bess ... I am often asked for recommendations for speakers at conventions, special occasions and educational seminars and I turn first to Stacey if she is available." -Gerald Molen, Executive Producer, Schindler’s List, Jurassic Park
