Meet our speakers

Dr. Naomi Cramer Overton

Dr. Naomi Cramer Overton has served as Stonecroft’s President and CEO since September of 2018.

Naomi is passionate about advancing the Gospel and building the Kingdom of God. Since being at Stonecroft and before COVID, Naomi invested her time in traveling across the nation, visiting with over 2,000 Stonecroft volunteers to hear your stories and your heart for the ministry and the Gospel. During COVID, Naomi connected Stonecroft volunteers across the nation through National Weekly Rhythm calls and advanced the Gospel by promoting relational evangelism initiatives and providing Zoom accounts for our key leaders to continue hosting Bible Studies and outreaches.

Her sweet spirit and genuine love for people echo time spent with the Savior, in the presence of God, and a deep hunger for His Word. It is not by accident that she lives on mission to share the gospel and make disciples, passionately working so that the church can grow and thrive.
Dr. Overton has a Doctorate in Missions from Fuller Theological Seminary, and she holds an MBA in Organizational Entrepreneurship from UCLA’s Anderson Graduate School of Management. Her Bachelor of Arts degree is in Political Science with Communications from Stanford University, which is where she began a relationship with Jesus Christ and met her husband and college sweetheart, Frank. They currently split their time with family in Colorado and San Diego and have three grown children and one sweet little dog.

Lisa Whittle

Jesus is everything. It is the heart, the passion, and the leadership approach of author, speaker, and ministry leader, Lisa Whittle. As the daughter of a pastor, Lisa’s longest community is with the Church, which has become her greatest place of ministry. Her love runs deep to see people pursue Jesus for life, grow deep roots of faith, and walk strong in the midst of a world that so often seems to have gone crazy.

For this reason, Lisa has dedicated her life to writing and speaking about the truth of Jesus Christ and how wanting Him the most changes everything. Lisa is a bestselling author of 8 books and a new Bible study including The Hard Good (September 2021) and Jesus Over Everything (March 2020), Put Your Warrior Boots On (June 2017) and 5 Word Prayers (October 2017), and a sought-out Bible teacher for her wit and bold, bottom line approach. Her with you-for you signature style is a favorite of audiences who have her coming back to speak into them year, after year. From retreats to rehab facilities to college campuses to the large church or conference stage, Lisa’s desire remains the same: to point people to the Jesus who can change their life.

You will frequently hear her shout the sentence; “Broken crayons still color!” as she has a passion to help women and teens believe in the idea that no matter their difficult story or walls of weakness, God still has an incredible plan to go along with the purpose He’s placed in their life. “Broken crayons still color”…. a life mantra. A reminder that our past doesn’t have to define us. an interactive experience. a message of hope.

Whitney Putnam

I have had the incredible opportunity to meet amazing women throughout my life. (Like you!) Gathering with women, laughing together and learning from one another are only a few of my favorite things.

In fact, connecting with women in my home got me through some of my darkest seasons. As did learning to connect with my body and connecting with God. Home, body and soul are all reflections of my own journey.

Through pain and loneliness, I learned the importance of designing a home so others feel welcome.

Through daily gratitude for the skin I am in, I have learned to love my body. It hasn’t been easy. There have been cycles of addiction and blankets of shame. Learning to celebrate my body has taken years of intentional practice.

Through day-in and day-out relationship with God, I have learned the anchor of happiness. It’s Him. It’s Jesus. He is the one full of limitless happy. I promise.

Through my experiences and products, my hope is that women taste how good it is to cultivate their homes, bodies and souls in ways that allow true flourishing. Every single day.
