Hello There, Friend…

My name is Stacey. I’m a Jesus-lovin’ wife and mama who loves adventures in nature, spending time with my family, good books, healthy living and coffee dates with friends! I’m passionate about letting the truth of God’s Word be the compass that guides my path and the foundation upon which our family is built.

fullsizer_17Meet my Family…

I have been married to my wonderfully, hard-working husband, Paul for almost 26 years.  We live in the mountains of California and together have shared in the great joy of raising our two amazing kids, Lindsey and Luke.  We’ve parented some furry friends as well; two dogs, Koda and Buddy, as well as a brood of chickens.

Life in the mountains has brought an appreciation for all the different seasons in life.  We’ve experienced what it’s like to live in the snow as well as the splendiferous amounts of colors that abound in the fall.  We’ve witnessed the intrusion of wildlife into our space and how God uses it all to remind us of His Power and Beauty in Creation.  We enjoy exploring new places, picnicking by beautiful lakes, little adventures away to the ocean, making memories with our kids and making time for couple dates! 

A Foundation of Faith…

The path to living a godly life based on faith is found in believing in the Rhythms of God’s Grace. 

The Word tells us in Ephesians 2:8, “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith, and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God…”

It is through the varied circumstances that shape our lives that we learn to see the faithfulness of God amidst our brokenness.  We have the opportunity to turn control of our lives over to the One who created us, the One who knows all there is to know about us and the One who loves us perfectly and unconditionally.  When we choose to place Jesus center stage in our lives, we find He meets us on the dance floor leading us with an all-sufficient supply of Grace to meet our every need.

We learn to dance in the… Rhythms of His Grace

His Story in my Life…

This 13 year old girl, accepted Jesus into her life and the seeds of His Grace were planted into her heart.  21 years later, when her physical, relational and spiritual health hit a deep low, she found a brokenness never known before. This place is where she learned to embrace the true gift of God- Grace.  It was through the deep teachings of God’s Word and the faith of women who knew Jesus intimately, that she was drawn into an intimate pursuit with the One who could truly heal her broken heart.  The Lord knew all along He would use her brokenness in those years to bring about good and to refine this messy girl.

I am that messy girl. 

And since that time, God has continually brought abundant measures of healing into my life. He has pursued my heart, shown me how His Word brings about true transformation, and how such transformation renews my mind and restores my peace.

I Have a Passion…

this passion to disciple others in the Word

this passion for building into the Church

this passion for caring for those who are struggling

this passion for those who hunger for life-giving community

I love sharing in the goodness of God and hearing of all the marvelous ways He works at using our lives to bring Him Glory!
