The day was October 19, 1998.

Stacey Paden was a thief, a liar, a drunk, and an adulterer.

She had imprisoned herself to an alcohol addiction that was robbing her of everything life had offered. How could she possibly escape this man-made prison and reclaim her life?

She couldn’t – BUT God could.

As she slowly sat down in her gold 1970’s suede chair and asked Jesus to take control of the mess she had created, He reached out for her with open arms and rescued her from the claws of addiction.

He restored her hope, her joy and gave her a peace that is indescribable.

When she stood up from that gold suede chair, she stood up a child of the most high King….a princess. God has walked her through the steep mountains and the deep valleys of sobriety for over 21 years. He is healing her broken heart one day at a time, one step at a time, and restoring her life.

Stacey enjoys leading Bible Studies and sharing the hope of Christ to women of every walk of life. She is co-teacher in a ladies Sunday morning connect group, and she meets twice a month to lead a Bible study with women coming out of addiction. She has experienced great forgiveness in her life, both the giver and receiver. She has experienced restoration of relationships and seen God move incredibly through her life. She also knows the trials women face raising special needs children and works hard to keep balance in her life. Her heart’s desire is to help women know their worth and help them find their beauty in Christ as she shares her story of redemption.

Genesis 50:20, “ But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive.
