Staci Lys Dunn Silva

I’m just a simple girl that is passionate about being relevant and making a difference in this world.

In a nutshell, this is me:

World traveler, lover of bright sunny days, experiencing cultures, good friends and conversation. I love my God and love my family.

I don’t believe I have the truth, but that I have a relationship with Truth and want to be closer to Him.

Canadian, born and raised in Vancouver, BC.  YWAMer since 2000 (don’t know what YWAM is? Check out YWAM in the menu bar.) and have traveled and lived all over the world –Hong Kong, China, India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Afghanistan, Turkey, Germany, Argentina, Australia and The USA.

I moved to Brazil in 2002, married an awesome “Baiano”, Daniel, and we have two adorable kiddies, Caue and Hannah.

A God Colored Girl in a Grey World is my creativity cupboard. Here you will find poetry and thoughts, music, mixed media art, photography, and whatever artsy creative thing happens to come into my life.

Hope you enjoy.

  1. Hi Staci,

    How can I contact you?

    I am meaning to send you the free ebook I promised to subscribers of organizedlunacy.net.

    Thank you so much and I look forward to your response.

    Have a lovely day in Brazil!


  2. Dear Stacy,
    What a beautiful blog you have set up! I admire your approach to life, and going through your blog and travels…you are definitely an inspiration.
    I look forward to following on your adventures, and am happy to meet such a kind and spirited “simple girl” 😉

    • Awwww, thank you so much. What a sweet thing to say. I’m so glad that you think my blog is beautiful. That really blesses my heart.
      🙂 ❤

  3. Hi there Stacilys, You have got an incredible blog. I really liked reading through your blog. And your introduction was so hearty. I would love to travel one day too ! It’s my dream. I’m really inspired by you.

    Hope to see you around.
    Much love,
    Zee ❤

    • Wow! Thank you so much for such kind and encouraging words. You’re soooooo sweet. I’m so glad you’re enjoying my blog. I know I’m going to like what I see over in your little corner of the blogosphere 🙂
      Oh yes, you really should travel. I think people who travel are a lot more open to and accepting of other cultures. I know that my traveling days haven’t ended. They just can’t. Let’s see where the next place will be eh…
      Love and hugs.
      Staci 🙂 ❤

  10. I suspect if you’re a YWAMer from Vancouver, we know some of the same people. We support Tanya Lyons for example (she has been in Vancouver’s Hasting’s st. area for some time), and our pastor is a YWAMer for ages – Greg Wiens. Grace to you.

    • I am soooooooo sorry for not responding to you earlier Rusty. I just found this comment in my WP admin site. It didn’t even show up in my notifications. I’m glad I checked, which isn’t too often for me.
      Oh yes, I’m from Vancouver, born and raised. However, I have never been with YWAM in Canada. Only in Asia and full time now in Brazil. I only know the people from the Donor services office and I also know Randy Perizeau. I also know Russ Rosen in Langley.
      Oh wow, your pastor is a YWAMer? That’s so great. Which church do you attend? I must visit when we are there in November/December. Then we can meet too. That would be so cool to actually meet a fellow blogger and a Vancouver YWAMer.
      I will be over to your blog later today. At the moment I am in class with my son. I’m homeschooling him because the school system here isn’t very good with high functioning autistic kids.
      Until later. Many blessings.

  11. Stacilys!
    Thank you for visiting my Blog.
    I was stunned to go through your blog in a hurry.

  13. Hey Staci… You and I have a mutual friend who has dropped off the planet. Rob..Vpub? I can’t even get an email to go through. It bounced back to me as undeliverable. Do you know anything about him, or if he is ok? It always bothers me when something like this happens. I hope he is ok… :-/

    • Hey Rob, so glad that you are fine. I just found your comment here in my ‘pending’. It didn’t show up in my notifications. Did you delete the other blog?

    • Hi Rose, so sorry it’s taken me so long to respond. It’s because I was traveling for about a week, and had very little access to the internet.
      Thank you so much for the nomination. I’m honoured that you would consider me for this. I actually stopped accepting awards some time ago because of my time restrictions. I hope you understand. But I am so pleased that you would consider me for this Rose, and am truly thankful for it.
