She is the founder and former lead vocalist of the rock band Flyleaf. Little is known of her deceased biological father, whom she never met. Though born in Homestead, she was raised in Arlington, Texas. At age ten, she began dabbling in drugs, and at thirteen fell into it even worse. At sixteen, Sturm was kicked out of her home after a fight with her mother that involved the police, and moved to Gulfport, Mississippi to live with her grandparents, Sid and Annie Roach. There she attended and later graduated from Gulfport High School. During that same year, she went through bouts of depression and had suicidal tendencies. I really felt like that was the end," she said. Sturm left school early and when she finally arrived home, was met by her grandmother, who was supposed to be gone at that time.
Former Flyleaf vocalist Lacey Sturm had a solid debut solo outing in with the Life Screams album, and now she's back after four years with some fresh music. Sturm has just unveiled the song "The Decree" that is assumed to be part of a forthcoming record. Fans who caught the singer on the road last fall have likely heard the track as it was one of two new songs the other being "State of Me" that Sturm played while on the road with Skillet. The track starts off with a build to a powerful Sturm scream, then scales back to a more vulnerable vocal that grows more confident heading into the powerful vocal in the chorus. It's a definite solid start to the next phase of Sturm's career. Earlier this year, Lacey and her husband Josh Sturm, who mixed the track, teased that they had completed the song and were planning to share it soon. You can now hear "The Decree" in its completed state below and check out the lyrics as well:.

I am not sure if this post can be gone through, if it does, please reply me. I wouldn't purposefully subject my daughters to that BS. I have been married to my doctor husband for 36 years. She will never retire. It takes a special person to be a doctor's spouse. My religious faith saved my sanity but I still worry.
