Her background as a freelance writer and consultant well-prepared her to teach communication skills; however, only hands-on experience (and much time spent on her knees) equipped her to mentor her sons through the character-transformation required to help them work toward their full potential.
Today, she has a passion for empowering teens to recover territory lost by “mushy thinking” and low expectations. Although cliché, it is true: “Today’s students become tomorrow’s leaders.”
Stacy published articles in Moody, Decision, and other magazines, wrote scripts for Willow Creek’s junior high ministry, copy for Pastor Bill Hybel’s “Defining Moments” Audio Newsletter and a broad range of material for corporate and non-profit clients. She also managed a law firm that specialized in civil rights litigation and constitutional law.
Most recently, she created Philosophy Adventure, a core curriculum (to be released this fall) that teaches World History, Geography, Writing, Speaking, and Critical Thinking through the lives and stories of prominent philosophers.
She considers her role as wife to Roger and mother to two precious sons to be her greatest work and privilege.
