Every afternoon, Stephanie helps you end your day with great Christian music and topics that will make you smile, laugh and think. Her goal is to help you relax after the day and get you home with things to talk about as a family. She shares the news of the day, odd facts and lots of faith each day. Join Stephanie weekday afternoons at 3 for The Way Home!
Stephanie grew up in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and received her undergraduate degree in Music Administration from The University of Alabama. She earned her master’s degree in English from UAB in April of 2014 and started co-hosting The Way Home in the afternoons the very next month. Even though she often jokes that she “tripped and fell” into a radio career, she could not imagine doing anything else! She loves interacting with listeners and sharing stories of inspiration and faith. When she is not wasting time on Pinterest, you can find her in the kitchen trying out new recipes or in her shed restoring furniture. Stephanie has spent time leading worship in the Dominican Republic and Haiti, and she has a heart for the people of Hispaniola. She has been married to her husband, Robby, for two years, and the two of them love to go on walks with their spoiled rotten golden retriever, Briggs.
We all have different sides to who we are and Ace says, “I’m a man of many sides,” which is about the best way to describe him. He’s a Christian, Dad, musician, author, speaker, graphic/web designer but, out of all those he’s a “radio guy.”
Ace’s love of music goes back to the age of three while riding in the car listening to the radio with his mom. She taught him about music, faith and following your passions…A defining time in his life of connecting in his relationship with God and how God made him.
His love of listening to the radio grabbed him by age 6 growing up in Birmingham and he’s not looked back since! After years of playing in clubs and bars, Ace has had the opportunity to give back in worship through performances at churches across the country and help expand the Ascension Worship Network. Ace grew up a southern boy in the heart of the Bible belt here in Alabama but, has moved around calling Tennessee, Florida, Indiana and Michigan home as well. He survived the brutal winters to come home to his roots and his family!
Above all of Ace’s sides, he takes the role of Dad to his two girls seriously. He blends principles from the Bible with the humor and mutual respect taught during episodes of “The Cosby Show” in how he raises his kids, looking for ways, on purpose, to invest in them daily.
Now on the WDJC team, he says, “reconnecting his relationship with families in the area” is his favorite thing he gets to do each week. Ace continues to say “God is showing up and showing off! I’m strapping in for the amazing ride and its SO good to be back HOME!”
