Stacey Sloughfy Inspirational Blogger, I Am Alive

"Traveling is the true great love of my life...I am loyal and constant in my love of travel. I feel about travel the way a mother feels about her impossible, colicky, restless newborn baby - I just don't care what it puts me through. Because I adore it. Because it's mine. Because it looks exactly like me." Elizabeth Gilbert - Eat, Pray, Love

Stacey is an inspirational blogger and traveler who loves Jesus, Japanese culture, Mexican food, warm weather, and concerts. When she is not writing, traveling, or sharing her stories of faith on social media, she is most likely cuddled up at home with her two cats in southern Indiana planning her next adventure.
