Hi, I'm Stacie.
Stacie, affectionately known in the office as "Smiller" or "Smill," is Pathway's resident word nerd. From copywriting to creative writing to social-media-word-smithing, her passion is to use the power of language to inspire people for Christ. She has an insatiable sweet tooth, loves treadmill running, and possesses no memory whatsoever for numbers (other than her 14-digit library card number). When she's not writing for PCC, she's wrangling her daughter and twin sons, or reading a book next to her husband while he watches football.
Highlight from the past year?
I traveled to Israel. And I had my first Big Mac. It’s a toss-up between the two.
Something you’re good at:
Spontaneous dance parties. Turning anything someone says into a song lyric. Doing all the character voices when reading a book aloud.
Something you’re not good at:
Math. Direction. Sports requiring hand-eye coordination. I’m pretty much a walking gender-stereotype.
What are you reading lately?
My favorite reads from this year include Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance, A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman, First Women: The Grace and Power of America’s First Ladies by Kate Anderson Brower, Introverts in the Church by Adam McHugh, and The Road Back to You by Ian Cron
Something unusual you keep in your purse or wallet?
Before smartphones and apps like Goodreads, I used to carry a sheet of paper with a typed list of all the books I wanted to read. It made pit stops at the library much more efficient.
Any pet peeves?
Gunky microwaves. Warm toilet seats. When someone says, “Long story short…” after they’ve told a very long story. (Listed together, those three things sound especially horrific.)
