Shae Bynes is a passionate storyteller, best-selling author, engaging teacher and mentor whose life and business were completely transformed through the power of encountering the unrelenting love of God. She is on a mission to help people experience God’s best in their business and family lives.

Both a minister and business owner, Shae equips and ignite entrepreneurs in the marketplace, as well as married couples inside and outside of the bedroom (through a growing marriage ministry with her hubby and high school sweetheart Phil).
