For more than a decade, Lacey Sturm has traveled coast to coast, performing. She’s played in front of packed stadiums. She’s shared her testimony with thousands.
But there’s still a genuine sense of humility in her eyes as she discusses what may be her most public role yet.
“I just keep thinking, ‘Who am I?’” Lacey said. “I’m nobody. I can’t believe this—that I get to be a part of what God’s doing on this earth in such a powerful way.”
On Nov. 7-10, Lacey will appear in a new video message from Billy Graham to the United States and Canada. The video has potential to reach millions of people in homes all over North America.
“It’s everything I cried out to God with in my alone time,” Lacey said. “‘Use my life for whatever You want, and help me to say yes to your adventures.’”
Friday, the 32-year-old wife, mother of two, music artist and former lead singer of “Flyleaf” sat down at the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association’s (BGEA) Charlotte headquarters to talk about her latest adventure, which will give her a massive platform to share her powerful story of faith.
“When I met Jesus, when I became a Christian, … I felt the love of God for others in a way I had never felt before,” Lacey said. “And to think that God’s message could go out in a way that so many people could hear it at the same time, to all of a sudden feel the love of God for each other—it’s overwhelming for me.”
