Welcome to the Land of 10,000 Words

StacyMonsonThanks for stopping by the Land of 10,000 Words! I’m glad you’re here.

I’m an 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 through my simple pages.

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.

I’ve learned I don’t have to keep up with the neighbors, make the most money, have the nicest clothes, and say all the right things. I DO have to try to be the best me I can by doing life with the One who knows me inside and out (even those things I hide from everyone else.). And if I do that, it’s all I can do.

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.

    You’ve had a wonderful idea to promote other writers in this space! What a blessing to them, and to us as we learn about them!

    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!


  3. Great stories/interviews on MN writers. Nice job Stacy!


  4. 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!

    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!
