Grow in your faith, gifts and purpose, while you run the race

God has marked out for you

Hi, my name is Deanna Storfie

My passion is to help others grow in their faith, gifts and purpose ON PURPOSE!

Have you ever felt stuck in some area of your Christian walk? Perhaps you struggle at times to trust in God and His goodness. Maybe you find yourself struggling with prayer or Bible reading and study. It might be knowing what your purpose is, or even if you have a purpose! What about your gifts? Are you developing and using them to the best of your ability and the way God intended?

When we struggle in ANY of these areas it’s easy to lose focus on eternal things; get bogged down by our shortcomings, bad habits and sin. We get stuck! That’s why I appreciate Hebrews 12:1. 

 “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.”

We all have a race (or course) marked out for us. We were created for a God-purpose. Something bigger than ourselves. It’s not about us – it is all about Him. We are to be lights that shine in a dark world. We do this by using the gifts (passions) and abilities He has given us.

For over 35 years I have been growing and developing my faith, gifts and life purpose in order to inspire, encourage and equip others. I’ve also been researching, writing and dramatizing the lives of those who’ve run their race and received their prize. We can learn from the race they’ve already run.

 Here’s my STATEMENT OF FAITH in case you’re interested!



The writer of Hebrews compares our Christian journey to a race that we are ALL running. I don’t think he saw it as a sprint, but more like a marathon! I don’t know about you but marathons aren’t easy to finish. It’s so tempting to give up part way through or get distracted.


There have been many out-standing Christians who’ve finished their race and are cheering us on. They endured hardships, difficulties and trials, but persevered; growing their character and maturing their hope in Jesus and His promises. Their stories are sure to inspire you!


We can learn from the race they’ve already run; from the mistakes they made and the victories they had. Their examples of perseverance and faith encourages us to shake off  the sin that hinders us and the distractions that side-track, so we can finish our own race.

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.”

-HEBREWS 12:1-

“Captivating!” “An amazing experience!” “Very relevant.” “You did a wonderful job showing us who she was.” “A delight!” “It really blessed us!” “You brought us right back to the cross.” “Our young people were completely engaged.”

Performing Parables
How Does It Work?

Because my dramas involve only one person there is very little preparation needed on your part; other than providing a headpiece microphone and a cleared, raised stage approximately 8 feet wide by 6 feet deep. You may also need to provide some simple props like a table, chairs, etc. I also have promotional material in the way of posters, power point and video that you can use for your event.


Do you have an event coming up, or a special service? Your date might be available, so Let’s Connect. Know that I require billeting before or after your event.


Each drama has a variety of themes. Are you wanting a drama about service, surrender, forgiveness, prayer or God’s grace? Maybe you have a favorite hero of the faith?


Click on the Let’s Connect! button anywhere on my website. I’ll answer any of your questions and would love to find out more about your ministry or event.
How Much Does It Cost?

With over 35 years of writing and performing experience you will not be disappointed in the message or quality of the drama. I was trained by Covenant Player, out of Los Angeles, in the early 80’s, where I learned how to share the gospel through drama. My Christian heroes’ stories have been carefully researched to hold true to the history of the time and the mark each one made for the kingdom of God. Let’s connect so that I can discover more about you, your ministry and the event you have in mind. We’ll also discuss the cost involved in inviting me. I try to accommodate all groups, no matter how big or small. You are required to cover my travel costs to your location, meals and accommodations (I prefer people’s homes to hotels).

ABOUT Deanna

I’ve been sharing my dramas about Christian ‘heroes of the faith’ since 2006, with over a hundred different churches and their ministries, from a variety of denominations. I appreciate the people that I have met within the body of Christ; many quickly feel like family. They might be the people who host me in their homes, the ministry leaders who work tirelessly in their communities or the people who are encouraged by the stories.
I know that as I research and share the lives of these heroes of the faith, I have been challenged in my own walk with God, right along with my audiences. As a result, for nearly fifteen years, I have been volunteering at my local correctional center. With a small group of Christian women from different churches, we have been using our gifts and abilities to introduce women inmates to the goodness and love of God. We have been blessed to see many come to faith through the years.
