  • Quotes

    • Stacie: There have been so many days when I realize that God is doing so much in spite of me, and I think that's been the biggest blessing of all.

    • Stacie: I think that prayer is always needed with travel lately and being surrounded by people who aren't Christians.

    • Stacie: Overseas travel is fine for me. I grew up traveling a lot. My family, we were missionaries in the Ukraine when I was little, and we did lots of mission work to Mexico, and then my dad was the international director for his company, so we would spend our summers in Europe, and so I've traveled overseas a lot.

    • Stacie: If God wants this to work for you, if God has planned for this to work and go and be the hugest thing ever, then you can never not do enough to make it work. And if God is planning for this not to work and for you to go on and do something else, you can never do enough to make it work. And I just though that's so true. It's totally in God's hands.

    • Stacie: When you hear yourself on the radio or see yourself on TV, it's interesting to hear what people are saying about you. You know, MTV is all about the gossip and they're picking apart what you're wearing, how you look, and they want to compare you to everybody. It's interesting to hear what they come up with.

    • Stacie: I want to be able to talk about some of the things I go through—even as a Christian girl. There are things I deal with and struggle with that I'm able to put into words and then into music.

    • Stacie: The ultimate goal in life is, obviously, to be a child of God that He would be proud of.

    • Stacie: I do not like onions. It's so funny because I am probably one of the least picky eaters ever. Pretty much any type of new food, I'll try it, I'll eat it.

    • Stacie: You can always wake me for a sweet dessert. Ever since I was little, I am crazy about desserts. You can even give it to me as breakfast, lunch and dinner!

    • Stacie: They should write a law against cheating. It's weird, that there's not a single place in America where you can buy a beer, when you're younger than 21, but you can cheat unpunished when you're married.

    • Stacie: I don't want to criticize anybody, but I think Paris Hilton is fairly overrated. She can do so little, that you shouldn't even be thinking about it, but everybody has an opinion about her... and so do I.

    • Stacie: Cheating is awful, I would never do such a thing. There is somebody I really like, though... Dwyane Wade, basketball player for Miami Heat. He is adorable, but yeah, he's married... That's also something i like so much about him; He always talks really sweet about his wife and kids.

    • Stacie: I drive an SUV 83 Mini Hummer, I love those cars! They look very tough, but they drive heavenly. They aren't difficult to park either, they are really super practical and comfortable. I never want an other car again!
