She Is Mine

Stephanie’s story will leave you moved…and changed.

“Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you pre- serve my life; you stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes, with your right hand you save me. The LORD will fulfill his purpose for me; your love, O LORD, endures forever—do not abandon the works of your hands.”Psalms 138:7-8

What people say

“She can get right back to that place of abandonment but yet have no anger or resentment or bitterness, just be overwhelmed by God’s love.”

“I thought it was the most dramatic rescue story I had ever heard and I just wept all the way through it thinking, how can this be, that this person could survive that kind of trauma except the Lord.”

Our Story

Many people–whether victims of physical and emotional abuse, trauma, injustice, oppression, or merely those who have lost their way–go through life facing one of the worst threats known to humanity: hopelessness. When hopelessness arises, often only two paths are open: some people sink into apathy or denial, believing there is nothing they can or need to do to address the hurt within. Others seek help, but the counselors with whom they meet cannot truly empathize with their experiences and do not offer the unique hope found in Jesus.

Fortunately, there is a better way. Stephanie Fast believes God’s heart is for everyone to know and experience His Destiny for them. Abandoned and left to die, Stephanie was rescued through adoption. Destiny offers a message of hope and healing found in Jesus. Although Stephanie experienced first-hand some of the most extreme abuse and neglect, she believed she had been created for more. She inspires people to yearn for an understanding of God’s design for them.
