About Steph Penny


I’m Steph, author of the newly published Surviving Childlessness, which is the second book in the Survival series following my debut book, Surviving Singledom. I write a weekly blog called Countercultural Conversations which challenges cultural norms in our churches and society in general. My writing inspires Christians to live more like Christ. To read my most recent blog posts, click here.

Oh, and in 2020 I won the CALEB Encouragement Award for my blog!

I’m a singer/songwriter and have released original songs on this page and on YouTube. Click here or visit YouTube to watch.

I help out with worship ministry at my local church. You can usually find me singing and jumping around behind the keyboard.

In my spare time, I work as a psychologist, helping individuals struggling with addiction and mental health issues.

When I’m not at work, you’ll find me writing, chilling out with my husband and pet cat, eating chocolate (the darker the better, amIright?), buying far too many books than I’ll ever read and dreaming of travel!


I am available to speak at your church, group or event. Send your speaking requests direct to me here or at steph@stephpenny.com.au
