"I’ve spent a good part of my life writing songs and sharing them with others. Like my Nana, a seamstress who found joy and purpose in using her gifts to create beauty and love others, I’m incredibly grateful to be doing what I love for a living. I share my insights, stories and research about the creative life in a series of sessions I’ve developed called FLOURISH events.
FLOURISH events center around the themes of my book, Flourish: Cultivate Creativity, Sow Beauty, Live In Color and are designed with three main goals in mind: to uncover our distinct areas of giftedness; to develop and nurture them with passion and discipline; and to find joy and purpose in sharing them with others. At the heart of these FLOURISH events is my deep desire to encourage others to cultivate a life in which their gifts find their full expression!"
Options for FLOURISH events include full weekend retreats, single-day, half day or evening events. Watch Staci in a recent video speaking on FLOURISH.

“There is a longing in us to tap into all that God has created us to be. Staci has a genuine way of engaging with that longing, compelling us to truly flourish and courageously pursue what God has created us to do. She took time to understand the needs of our women, and tailored her message to meet us where we were.”

Staci has a winsome style of weaving her music, personal stories, and the biblical narrative into a rich and compelling invitation to follow where Jesus is leading. As gifted as she is, there is a humility and accessibility about her style that puts you at ease and makes you want to go along.
