This book is a long conversation with a big sister who is looking you straight in the eye and inviting you to take a break from biting your fingernails and to see just how very beautiful the end of yourself might be. If you read with a hungry heart – hungry to climb right out of yourself and into a deep inhalation of a fresh perspective of Him and of you – you will not close the back cover unchanged.

In Fresh Out of Amazing, Stacey lets us know that on those many days when we just have nothing left, we are not alone. But she doesn’t leave us with just having a friend who understands. With the power of God’s Word, she takes us by the hand and shows us how we can find in Christ exactly what we need to not just keep going, but to thrive.

In Fresh Out of Amazing, Stacey refreshes our parched souls with this foundational and transformative truth- Jesus hasn’t called us to be amazing. He has called us to be loved. By him. Jesus is already all the “amazing” we need. Thank you Stacey for, once again, doing what you do so well—Setting our eyes on Jesus!

No matter what season of life you find yourself in, there’s always a need to feel like someone understands you. Stacey Thacker is that person, and in Fresh Out of Amazing, you will find that “I’ve been there too” encouragement.

Clare Smith

Writer and Speaker

I could tell you Stacey Thacker is a great writer, because she is. I could tell you she’s a great mother, because she is that too. Wife, friend, and singer extraordinaire, that’s her. But the best thing about Stacey is her ability to share the deep, sometimes hard, truths in a way that leaves you loving Jesus more than when you started. In a world that says we have to be amazing to measure up, Stacey points to grace.
