Left Everyone Wanting More

"Steve came to our church to present a forum on self-care and the basics of suicide prevention. It was one of the best events I’ve been privileged to host in more than 20 years of local church ministry. Drawing from his personal experience, Steve takes his audience on a journey from despair to hope, from chaos to calm. Full of wit and wisdom, his 90 minute presentation left everyone wanting more."

​Light for the Climb Out

"Austin demonstrates vulnerability and nakedness; showing us his scars so we can begin to be comfortable with our own. His story travels with us to places of deep pain, but his words of encouragement provide a ladder and light for the climb out.”
