WBM Presents: Stacie Lynn

WBM presents a young Christian woman after God's heart, take a moment and get to know Stacie Lynn, in her own words:

My birth name is Stacie Lynn Phillips, I married an awesome man of God 1 1/2 ago, I am now Stacie Lynn Davis. The everyday Stacie and stage "Stacie Lynn" are the exact same. I take the ministry of music to heart. There really isn't too much stage or acting to it. But, I have noticed the boldness that takes over me when I take the stage. That's a confidence and level of influence and fire that I know could only come from God. Other than that I'm kinda the "Girl next door".

I've been singing and doing minor performing my whole life. I just recently started recording and establishing myself as an artist about 1 1/2 to 2 years ago. And I believe it took so long because, I kinda had my hands in the air concerning what style of music I would do. My passion is Praise and Worship music, But I believe that God wants to use me in Contemporary Christian as a tool to draw in lost souls and even those who are saved for a closer walk with God.

I think my greatest accomplishment thus far (not to sound deep) is just the fact that I've come to grips with the fact that I'm not perfect, I'm human and I want to be better. And because of that, I can allow God to have his way with me and I can strive to be a better me and not be ashamed or afraid to fail sometimes. Sometimes we get so caught up in trying to have what someone else has or live how someone else is living that we can't focus on our own dreams and goals for ourselves and families. I can only be successful at being me.

I'm so ministry focused that I just want to know that my music is serving it's purpose, God's being glorified, someone is touched and or saved because of it and that I continue to have peace and unity in my personal everyday life and family.

Music is kinda like pizza, everybody likes it but not everyone likes the same kind. I love gospel/ christian music but growing up I wasn't into James Cleveland and Shirley Caesar, so I wasn't satisfied with or receptive to gospel/christian music. So when I write and arrange my music I'm thinking about non-believers, new-believers and even "seasoned saints" as we call them.

Often times I'll go in the studio with a song written and we'll get to vibing and it'll go the complete opposite direction. But I try to focus in on what I would consider listenable and enjoyable.

What inspires me is the behavior and lifestyles of the youth today. I believe that the music and videos have a huge effect on their lifestyles. And I want to be that light in the midst of all the darkness that surrounds them. I see now how much of an influence I am and can be to those who see me and hear my music and It's caused me to strive to be a better me in my everyday life and as an artist.

Praise and worship is just everything to me. I love to worship and that type of music isn't just something you listen to, it has purpose and that's to glorify God and it takes you to a level of intimacy with God. Im finishing up my album right now and trying to get a jump start on the next one.

Know who you are, be confident in that and don't be discouraged or intimidated by anyone or anything. Because you will face obstacles but if you stay focused on your goal you'll jump those hurdles like a Pro. I'm an ordinary woman with a extraordinary God striving to reach extraordinary heights.
