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.
Meet my Family…
I have been married to my wonderfully, hard-working husband, Paul for 26 years. We make our home in Northern California and together have shared in the great joy of raising our two amazing kids, Lindsey and Luke. We’ve parented some furry friends along the way as well; two dogs, Koda and Buddy, as well as a brood of chickens.
Fifteen years of living life in the mountains taught us to appreciate all the different seasons in life. We experienced what it was like to live in the snow as well as the splendiferous amounts of colors that abounded in the fall. We witnessed the intrusion of wildlife into our space and how God used it all to remind us of His Power and Beauty in Creation. In our newly acquired “open nest” season, we have been blessed to have had the opportunity to sell our mountain home and settle into life of a smaller scale! We’re thrilled to be in a thriving community, with great neighbors and lots of walking trails. Our favorite adventures include exploring new places, picnicking by beautiful lakes, little get-aways 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 give Jesus center stage in our lives, we find that He is already on the dance floor waiting to lead 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 to her before. This place is where she learned to begin to embrace the true gift of God’s 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 been blessed by the Lord’s faithfulness as He continues to show me how He truly works all things together for good to those who love Him and have been called according to His purpose. (Romans 8:28) He has given me opportunities to mentor individuals who are longing to know that they are loved unconditionally by the God who Created them.
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!
I’d welcome the opportunity for us to get to know one another and I hope that whenever you visit these pages, you walk away feeling encouraged and hopeful.
