Welcome to the Land of Words

StacyMonsonThanks for stopping by! I’m glad you’re here.

I’m an award-winning author, wife, mom, and grandma to 2.5 amazing grandchildren. But first and foremost, I’m a daughter of the King. Faith and family are my priorities in daily life, and I hope to inspire you as you meander here. I love chatting about life, faith, hope, and the importance of living every day in community.

As an author, my goal is to inspire and entertain readers who enjoy clean stories with real-life characters who stumble through life, just as we do. I’ve discovered that living on my terms, using my energy, gifts, and brain power, usually means things fall apart fast.

On my own, I’m a mess.

But when I let my Creator step in, front and center, I have the strength, courage, and grace to meet whatever each day offers. It’s not always pretty, but it’s better than what I can do on my own.

As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could do.”

I hope you’ll join me in doing the best we can with the best we have, to make this world just a little bit better.

  1. What a great idea for your blog, especially to those living in Minnesota who would like to know about the local writers and find out more about their home state. I like the name you chose for your blog too!


  2. This is such a great way to help people connect to local writers. I wanted to introduce myself last night at the MN NICE meeting but didn’t find a time to do it (you helped me find an open spot to sit when I came in late). I look forward to reading your blog and maybe I’ll see you in the future.

    Have a great day!


  3. It was a wild meeting last night, that’s for sure! I’m glad you connected with Rachel at your corner of the table. I’d love to chat more so drop me a note soon. Oh, and I loved your blog this morning about talking too much. Great points!


  4. Shattered Image
    This book became my devotional as I read and wept. I related to so much and received revelation about my own situation through the lives of these characters. I had to stop and pray so often it was a growing experience for me.
    After 42 yrs of marriage (14 of those spent as a pastors wife), I am now getting a divorce. But I cling to my Savior and hold fast to my confidence that ” He who begin… is able to complete..”. It may or may not be completely over between my husband and I, but either way, I’m in God’s hands.
    God bless you and your team for an awesome job!


    • Marilyn, my heart breaks for what you’re going through right now. I’m so thankful God used my story to touch you. He surprises us, doesn’t He, with the different ways He speaks to us? I will continue to pray for you, your husband, and your marriage. Cling to the Word, and keep at the forefront of your thoughts that as a child of the King, He holds you close every moment. Blessings on the coming days and months as you and He navigate life together.


  5. I Stacy, I’m excited about a new feature I’ve added to my website. It’s a book review page! I included my Amazon review of “Shattered Image” with a link to Amazon.com for those who wish to purchase it. If you care to post this announcement on your social media with a link to my website (awalktothewell.com), that would be wonderful. By the way, I loved Shattered Image and I intend to get the other two books of the series). I hope all is well with you. Warm regards, Rita Kroon
