The 2009 Woman of Faith Award
Dawn Stefanowicz – Founder, The Ministry of Dawn Stefanowicz
London, Ontario Canada (http://www.dawnstefanowicz.org)
Internationally recognized speaker and author Dawn Stefanowicz was at the forefront of educating thousands [millions] of Christians in North America in 2008 about the consequences for children who have been exposed to the negative influences of homosexual parents. Dawn grew up in a homosexual household during the 1960s and 1970s in Toronto , Canada , thus exposing her to many different people in homosexual, lesbian and transsexual subcultures, as well as the explicit sexual practices of these groups. Sadly, she lost her father to AIDS in 1991. Despite having faced so much adversity as a child, Dawn Stefanowicz has overcome the effects of being raised under a homosexual parent and is now prospering in a ministry that seeks to help parents protect their kids from the destructiveness of the homosexual lifestyle. Her new testimonial book, Out From Under, is a must read. We are proud to present Dawn Stefanowicz with our 2009 Woman of Faith Award for the outstanding work that she did to positively impact the American culture in the previous twelve months.
