Stenzel is in great demand as a speaker, traveling domestically and internationally.
Stenzel has developed numerous abstinence education products, with her videos gaining worldwide distribution and receiving the Crown Award for Curriculum of the Year in 1999.

Christendom College’s Major Speaker Program is an important aspect of the academic life at the College, offering the students and community an opportunity for cultural, intellectual, and spiritual enrichment beyond the classroom. The program offers students the opportunity to gain greater insights and depth of understanding of important issues, and to interact personally with a wide range of men and women who are shapers and critics of our society.
