MOM Initiative Founder / Hospice Pastor
Stephanie Shott & Joe PrainitoJoin us this week on Christian Devotions SPEAK UP! as Scott welcomes back friends and authors Stephanie Shott and Joe Prainito. Conceived as the result of a rape, Stephanie Shott wasn’t just an unexpected pregnancy … she was a woman’s worst nightmare. After being adopted by two loving parents, she found herself the victim of a decade of sexual abuse. As a young adult, she spent years wandering the wilderness of foolish choices, but since her life-changing encounter with Christ in 1987, Stephanie now takes every opportunity she has to tell of God’s rich and redeeming grace. She loves what Corrie Ten Boom once said: “There is no pit so deep that God is not deeper still.” As a guest on various television and radio shows, Stephanie is called upon to speak hope and healing to those who have suffered from sexual abuse; to remind women they are never too battered, too broken, too dirty, too unlovable, or too unforgivable for God; to call women to courageously escape the Christian bubble. She is founder of The M.O.M. Initiative – a mission centered mentoring ministry devoted to taking Titus 2 to the streets and changing the world one mom at a time. You can find out more about the The M.O.M. Initiative at www.themominitiative.com.
Joe Prainito’s public ministry began at the ripe age of fifteen when he auditioned and secured a bass guitar position in a band by the name of Wickeds End. Joe went on to play with other such bands as the Glenn Rowlands Band, Fish Tribe, and eventually joined Redline. Joe accepted a position at a local Hospice in Riverside, CA, which is where he is today. Joe states: “There was some opposition when I first stepped into the Hospice pastoral position because of my age, but as soon as I began to minister to the patients and families, I was always asked to return. The Lord had grace on me.” He continues to minister with Hospice today at the age of thirty-five, and believes the Lord still has great plans for his life to spread the word of God throughout the world. He resides in Southern California with his wife Dena and daughter Juliet. Discover more about him and his new book Identity at http://www.joeprainito.com.
