Have you ever encountered someone who immediately sold you on their message without even trying? That’s Becca Stevens in a nutshell.
Stevens, an Episcopal priest for 25 years, speaks and acts from her heart. Her honesty, sincerity and passion are contagious. Her message, “love heals,” is simple but powerful.
Not only is Stevens a priest, she’s an author, public speaker and social entrepreneur. She is also the founder and president of Thistle Farms, the largest social enterprise in the United States ran by survivors.
Thistle Farms is a sanctuary for healing started as an outgrowth of Stevens’ ministry, the Magdalene project. Thistle Farms’ residential program provides housing for 32 women survivors of abuse, addiction, trafficking and prostitution. The farm provides housing, medical care, therapy, education and job training for two years free of charge.
Speaking to the Soul: Alleluia! Alleluia!
