Lorraine Reed Whoberry, a wife, mom, now a grandmother, is the founder and executive director of the S.T.A.C.I.E Foundation, and associate pastor of New Hope Ministries and Sharing Hope Center. The S.T.A.C.I.E. Foundation was inspired by Lorraine, who survived a brutal attack on her daughters in 1999, which took the life of Stacie (for whom the foundation is named) and her younger daughter Kristie, who survived the attack.
Lorraine finds hope and healing by reaching out to other victims. She chose to overcome the aftermath of the offender’s decimation by focusing on the positive attributes and making positive differences in her community and across the Nation. As an impact speaker, she discusses topics that include accountability, consequences, hope and forgiveness from a victim’s perspective. She teaches on forgiveness at a level that few of us can even comprehend.
“The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.” Matthew 7:25
