StaceyThureenWebsiteheadshotbyKathyMarottaI desire to help you stay grounded in your faith, so that you can find stability on the seesaws of life. Why? Because of God’s grace and mercy. These are two words that are becoming etched within me. An identity crisis that started 15 years ago when I began a relationship with Jesus Christ. I’m still learning how to embrace a beautifully imperfect life filled with grace…

When I was a little girl I looked forward to (and as an adult I have struggled with) becoming a wife and a mom. I can’t take the credit for these precious gifts from God.

I loved to read, write, and color (sometimes outside of the lines) as a child. Now, my writing is going to be in devotional books. That’s God’s unmerited favor.

When I was little I’d pretend to be a teacher or a singer. Today, I’m a part of our church’s moms group leadership team. It’s where I get to talk with, and learn from, other moms about God’s grace and mercy. I also teach an adult water training class at our local YMCA. In 2018, I’ll be a part of the Finding Joy Ladies Night Out national speaking tour.

I was a competitive swimmer growing up. Now, I have purpose while participating in this sport. Most recently, I became a two-time United States Masters Swimming national champion runner-up. I’m also a one-time brand ambassador for Dolfin Swimwear. That’s God’s redeeming mercy and grace!

In 2011, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. For a season I helped raise awareness for this thyroid autoimmune condition. That was God’s grace in turning pain into purpose.

I’d love for you to join me in life’s unpredictable moments, by deepening your relationship with the greatest stabilizer of all: Jesus.
