Stacy Long came to AFA as a college intern in 2011, and stayed to write fulltime for the AFA Journal. Stacy has a B.A. in English, but her passion for writing began with her first childhood writing assignment. It is the delight of exploration and discovery that keeps her writing, eager to brighten even familiar and timeworn topics with a fresh look and new understanding. Above all, her goal is to communicate Christian truths in a way that is convicting to the Christian and compelling to the non-Christian.
When away from the keyboard, Stacy enjoys experimenting with recipes taken from food blogs, searching for her next travel destination, flipping through the writings of literary greats and Christian thinkers, and vainly attempting to create the perfect cup of coffee at home. Through it all, she tries to figure out this thing called life, and how to live as a Christian in the midst of it.
