More About the Author

When I discovered words in kindergarten, writing discovered me, and we've been joined by the pen ever since. I love writing books that entertain readers, give them a few "aha" moments along the way, and help them value life's journey.
My eight faith-based novels have been known to yield laughter and tears, and leave readers feeling deeply connected to the multifaceted characters they meet, while my sole nonfiction book will inspire you to connect more deeply with God.
Ultimately, whether you're reading my fiction or nonfiction, I hope you'll reach the end of what I've written not only feeling more hopeful, but also changed for the better.
If you're new to my work, thanks for reading! If you're a long-time reader, thanks for your continued support. Will you please share your thoughts about my novels here on Amazon, and with your friends? Also sign up for my author newsletter at so we can stay in touch regularly.

Thanks, and All My Best!

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Dayna was married to Brent, she was happy and lived with high hopes for their future, until Brent cheated on her and walked out of her life in a cold manner. Then, Dayna suffered through pain, anguish, and guilt. Seven years later, after Dayna moved on, Brent appears on her doorsteps with flowers in his hands. As many realize, the trauma of Divorce is very much like experiencing the death of a loved one, especially if one partner still loved the other. Imagine having to relive the same trauma several years later? Her ex-husband walks back into her life with his new wife, asking for forgiveness. Is the suffering and the pain during a Divorce not enough to endure, and just how strong are we? There are many tests thrown to us in this lifetime, and the choices we make depends on our inner-strength to cope and heal. I highly recommend "COMING HOME" to all those who enjoy inspirational stories, combined with uplifting messages in the process of healing painful wounds. Stacy Hawkins Adams delivers a novel with an engaging story that grabs the reader's attention in the first chapter. The characters come to life through the challenges they meet, and the decisions they make, based on faith. The reader is invited on an emotional roller-coaster ride through the trauma that the characters are faced with. When the story comes to an end, there are thought-provoking issues left behind to ponder. The author portrays harsh lessons many of us go through and the outcome of how we live the rest of our lives will depend on how we handle different situations, and how strong we can be. In addition, the power of forgiveness can indeed be the golden key to a new beginning.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Before Dayna Wilson started dating Warren she was married to Brent. She was left with much heartache after the divorce and it had taken years to get to a point where she could function again. Now Brent is back; he showed up on her door asking for forgiveness. Why now? And will Dayna be able to find it in her heart to forgive this man who hurt her so deeply?

The thoughts that popped into my head while reading:

1. Brent couldn't apologize to Dayna way before this? So, if he hadn't been ill would he have ever apologized for hurting Dayna the way he did?
2. Why is it that when a married man commits adultery everyone looks at the other woman as if she's more guilty? Yes, she's wrong, but c'mon now, the man knows he has a wife.
3. If the author would have shown what happened in Chapter 29 instead of having Audrey tell what happened, I would have been on the edge of my seat.
4. Christians should be willing to forgive (Colossians 3:13, Matthew 6:14) but that doesn't mean it will be easy. Depending on the situation, forgiveness can be downright difficult.

For the most part, I was into the story - Chapter 27 is where Adams really got my attention - but every now and then it got a bit slow and that's the reason for the 3.5 rating. Coming Home reminds followers of Christ how important it is to take our problems to God in prayer - In the Name of Jesus. The story also has messages on forgiveness and how to grow in the Lord. I like how honest the author was when it comes to Christian couples waiting until marriage to have sex (it can be difficult to resist temptation), and what I liked most was that the author showed what true friendship is all about.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Danya was all dressed and waiting for her boyfriend, Warren to pick her up for a special night when the doorbell rings and Brent her former husband rings the bell. Imagine her surprise when he walks in with a dozen roses (her favorite flowers) and says he needs to talk to her. After having been married to him for seven years and him leaving her for another women and divorcing her she has finally gotten on with her life and is happy and somewhat secure in her position and life until he returns. He pleads that he needs to talk to her and says he wants to do it with his wife, Tamara present, who he had cheated on while married to Danya. We are not wondering what is so important and you might have a clue but I am not going to tell you.
Needless to say this visit upsets her normal life and many changes and problems are now happening. In addition Danya's very good friend Audrey finds herself in trouble and turns to her special friend Danya who is not the person she should go to for help but does and there friendship is tested in this major problem she has created.
Adding to the mix is the questions that Warren is confronted with after hearing Brent say certain things to Danya and there relationship seems to be rather uncertain.
All of this is interesting but not a page or chapter goes by where we are not introduced to prayers, questioning God and above all asking him constantly for guidance and forgiveness and help I felt this was a little more then necessary for the story.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This book dives well past the surface, into the hearts & minds of two women struggling through both sides of a divorce. All thoughts, emotions, and struggles are portrayed, wrong or right in nature, revealing our human need for a God who understands and can be trusted with everything.

One woman, Dayna, struggles as the one who was cheated and left alone, yet has changed and grown since then. The other, Tamara, is conflicted as the next wife, when Dayna starts returning to her & Brent's lives. I was drawn in by both of these characters, as their stories reminded me that there are two sides to every story.

Both women thought they were over it - the past issues that caused the divorce, and the resulting pain. But they are each dismayed to discover they were wrong. Brent's illness is the catalyst that forces them into a hard look at the past, the present, and even the future.

God is central to the healing these women experience. There are times, just like in our real lives, when each woman wrangles with the idea that God has allowed these difficult, painful things to happen to them. I applaud the author for not rescuing Dayna or Tamara from these moments immediately. That is real life - sometimes we must wait on the Lord, trusting Him in our pain. But His timing and His wisdom are perfect, and He always comes through for us.

And while God is present and central to the theme of this book, there is no overbearing preachy aspect, no guilt-inducing finger pointing by the author. Rather, God meets these women where they are, and does not expect them to be perfect before He starts moving in their lives.

The supporting cast and secondary plot lines further support the message of this book.
