Facilitator / Leader 

Lori Ciccarelli Stotko, MPS, Founder and Certified Spiritual Director


Everyone, regardless of the leadership context, will benefit from Lori’s teaching on emotional and spiritual development of leaders. She has done a master-full job of weaving the best from psychosocial-spiritual academic research with down-to-earth story narratives from her own and others’ redemptive journeys to illustrate just what transformational leadership looks like in our culture today for tomorrow.

Rev. Dr. Russell R. Veenker, BCPC; Co-Founder, Mountain Learning Center Pastor Retreat 


We recently invited Lori Ciccarelli Stotko to be the featured speaker at our women’s spring tea, and I have to say our women’s ministry team was so happy and impressed with Lori’s preparation, adherence to our theme, and passionate delivery of her message! Her deep love of God and His word absolutely shines through everything she says and does. Not only would I invite Lori back to speak at more events for our church, I have already recommended her to other churches in our area. This woman is a gem!

– Paula Friedrichsen, Director of Women’s Ministries, Church on the Mountain 


When Lori came to present a day-long workshop for healthcare professionals, we were blessed.  Her intelligent passion for people is grounded in spiritual maturity that has been thoroughly tested by her life’s journey.  Her presentations are interesting, evidence-based, and practical.  Most of all, they are inspiring.

I have had the great pleasure of working with and participating in multiple educational sessions presented by Lori. She is an amazing speaker who has the ability to captivate, inspire and encourage the audience to share the passion she has for the topics she presents. She is compassionate, caring, holistic and she brings such a broad spectrum of experiences to her audience. She is a fantastic leader and has many attributes that emerging leaders are drawn to.  – Theresa Dessert, RN, BSN; Nurse Educator
