“If you just show up, lead yourself to Jesus, surrender your daughter, and do the best that you can, that is all the Lord asks of us.”
Today’s guest is Stacey Thacker. We had Stacey on the show last year and she’s back to share some updates with us. Stacey’s a wife and the mother of four girls. The author of six books, she is also a Bible teacher and loves to connect with women and encourage them in their walks with God. You can find her blogging at staceythacker.com and hanging out on Instagram (@staceythacker), usually with a cup of coffee in her hand.
Last time Stacey and I saw each other was the first time we had ever actually met in person. I was in Dallas speaking for Dare to Dream and she happened to be there speaking at First Euless Church and I got to attend. It was also the last time we both got to see our dear friend, Wynter, in person. I just cherish that night so deeply.
Stacey’s been through a lot in the last couple of years. Her husband, Mike, experienced an extreme medical emergency early last year, and we talked about how God showed up as Stacey did her best to navigate herself and her daughters through so many unknowns. Her personal and professional responsibilities shifted a lot over the last several months, and she released the second resource in the Girlfriends’ Guide to the Bible study last month, “When Grace Walks In,” which focuses on the book of Ephesians.
Stacey expertly teaches through Paul’s letter so that women can better understand the story of God’s rescue of His people, but also how the gospel should affect our lives and inform our decisions.
