Jesus, In An Addict

I started to not share this because I didn’t want someone to take me sharing it the wrong way, but if I don’t share it then I can’t show you what a changed life looks like. A recovering addict wrote me this note. She gave it to me today. I’ve read it at least a … Continue reading Jesus, In An Addict

In The Light

Bring it all to Him. Stop living under the shadows of expectations of others. I fight this so bad that it has taken counseling to undo all the years of garbage. Don’t be afraid to seek help. This isn’t a faith issue or lack of. Sometimes we have just been so impacted with life’s blows … Continue reading In The Light

The Shadow of The Almighty

Something happened to my heart last week. I was fighting with the Lord (which is so stupid, cause we all know He is gonna get His way one way or another) when I said, “Lord, I cant trust with my heart.” To which He responded, “Then do you trust me with it?” Ouch. In that … Continue reading The Shadow of The Almighty

Be Vulnerable

Everywhere I've turned for days I hear the Lord saying, "you have to do this. " Each time I respond. "But Lord, what if this happens again? It will break my heart. I can't." Then my pastor prayed yesterday, on his face on the altar, (and I'm paraphrasing and reporting what God whispered to my … Continue reading Be Vulnerable

The Many Face of Stacey

My weight has been an issue for many years. When I started my sobriety I was a size 16/18. My weight began increasing then. I’ve roller coastered with my weight up and down for these twenty years. I’ve done diets. I’ve done supplements. I’ve done more diets . . . and more supplements. I’ve even … Continue reading The Many Face of Stacey

Whiter Than Snow

The morning was insane - early wake up call with a sick dog and needing my husband's help to attach a frame to a sign left me rushed and my schedule broken. No coffee in bed and no quiet time. I was a mess. Then my perfect board - the one my husband was helping … Continue reading Whiter Than Snow

Thankful –

I hope you believe God’s timing is perfect. I haven't written in several months. Between health and adjusting to working I have struggled. Just weeks before this photo was taken I contacted a speaker mentor and told her I didn’t think God could use me in the area of speaking. I said I can’t imagine … Continue reading Thankful –


If you've ever held a job for any sort of time there will come a tome when your boss calls you in for a performance evaluation. Some times those go well, and sometimes . . . not so well. Regardless how that evaluation goes, the purpose is to bring out your strengths and to improve … Continue reading Self-Evaluation

Even In The Desert

God has been so faithful to me these last three weeks, longer than that, of course, but specifically He has shown Himself these three weeks. During this time one child had two separate diagnoses of flu, another child was diagnosed with strep, had adenoids removal surgery surgery, and was also diagnosed with flu. I had … Continue reading Even In The Desert
