Deb Headshot

Debbie Alsdorf

Author & Speaker  

Debbie Alsdorf’s mission is to help women live a better story—by leading them to the heart of God’s love and the truth of His word. Not a stranger to hard life, she has been trained through troubles to find the gift in every bitter cup. She speaks internationally delivering messages with wit, biblical truth, vulnerability and hope. She is an Amazon best-selling author of women’s non-fiction and bible studies, a biblical lay counselor, certified life coach and the founder of Design4Living ministries. In addition, she mentors at writers’ conferences and is a speaking coach for The Leverage speakers/communicators conference. Her newest release, It’s Momplicated, offering hope and healing for imperfect mothers and daughters, was featured on The Today Show.

She and her husband Ray have been married 28 years and raised a blended family of four adult children. Together they minister to marrieds, pre-marrieds and blended families. She likes long walks, anything with sand and sea, dancing in Zumba classes and a good chocolate donut. But her favorite thing of all is being a Grammy to their ten little loves, all under five years of age. Her cup, once empty, is overflowing with grace, hope and purpose.

Anita Renfroe


Anita Renfroe has been a featured comedian on ABC’s “Good Morning America” and is the author/performer of “THE MOM SONG” which has over 10 million views on you tube.
It’s been a wild decade for going from “stay-at-home-mom” to
“YouTube comedic Phe-mom-enon”… but Anita doesn’t mind. With her unique brand of estrogen flavored musical comedy and blend of sass, edge and slightly offbeat takes on All Things Female, audiences at Aspire, viewers of Good Morning America appearances and the YouTube masses who enjoyed her William Tell version of everything a Mom says would say that Anita just tells it like it is. Come see Anita on the Aspire tour.
Anita and her husband John live in Atlanta, Georgia with their spoiled dogs, Maggie and Chipper. They have 3 adult children (but who cares about them?!), and 5 amazing grand babies!


Staci Frenes

Song Writer, Author & Speaker  

A lifelong love of words and music has led singer/songwriter Staci Frenes to cultivate songs and stories into something strong and beautiful and brave. Staci’s acoustic folk-pop songs have inspired not only audiences at her concerts all over the country, but viewers of major network shows such as The Biggest Loser, America\’s Next Top Model, and Nashville as well as in nationally released feature films.

Staci’s songs reflect an artist and Jesus follower who is navigating the messy, unpredictable waters of change and seasons of transformation that include loss and the ever-shifting roles of career and parenting. 

Intricate, authentic and hopeful, Staci Frenes continues to cultivate truth that resonates in every aspect of life…through music, speaking and writing… she is confident that the process can be as beautiful as the finish.
