Meet the Author

Stacey Thacker is a wife and the mother of four girls. She is a writer and Bible teacher who loves God’s Word. Her passion is to connect with women and encourage them in their walks with God.  Stacey’s other books include Fresh Out of Amazing and Hope for the Weary Mom (co-authored with Brooke McGlothlin).

From Stacey:

Whenever I write I have a couple of things in mind. First, my passion is to point you to Jesus and his life-giving Word. My prayer is that when you put down one of my books, you will want to know God better. The book I want you to really dive into is his, not mine. When I look back over my life, every time I have found myself in a deep, deep pit the one thing that made it possible for me to climb out was the Word of God.

Second, I want you to feel as though you know me. I want you to see I’m just like you. I prefer drive-thru, I drink way too much coffee, and I enjoy singing loudly and embarrassing my daughters. My hope is that we can connect on the normal things in life, as girlfriends do. We may not have met in real life yet, but we are more alike than you know.

As I prayed about the next books I would write, God began to unfold the idea of a series just for girlfriends like us. It would be a set of books, based on books of the Bible, that sound more like a conversation over coffee than a sermon. We would laugh and cry together (obviously), but in the end we would truly fall deeper in love with Jesus.

The series is called The Girlfriends’ Guide to the Bible and this is book one, Is Jesus Worth It? I can’t wait to get started.

Looking Forward,


What Others are Saying

On every page, I feel Stacey’s passion for God’s Word and seeing women fall head over heals in love with Jesus. She has a unique ability to easily explain Scripture in a way that touches the heart and allows me to open my Bible with confidence. The truths of this book leave me with a resounding, “Yes! Jesus is worth it!”

I will NEVER look at the book of Hebrews the same again.

Stacey takes the theologically rich and dense words of Hebrews and makes it intimately personal and practical. With a laser like focus she makes sure you will never need to ask this question again, you will know without a doubt that this Jesus – our creator, intercessor, mediator, high priest, forerunner, author and finisher – is so, so worth it. He is worth it all!
