Carrie Beth Stoelting grew up in America's heartland. As a life-long American, she treasures the importance of freedom and patriotism. Growing up in Iowa offered her the opportunity to experience the wholesome beauty of our nation, solid values, and total freedom. Stoelting says, "I developed a strong love for the USA at a very early age. Now, I want to share my love for America by teaching other young people about our great nation and encouraging patriotism. I want to guide them by example. Most of I, want others to find freedom in Jesus Christ."
At the young age of six, Carrie first expressed patriotism by leading her kindergarten class to support conservative candidates in the class election. As a young girl, she also vocally supported Senator Bob Dole for president. Her efforts were featured in Iowa media and her work helped Senator Dole win the Iowa Caucus.
Carrie continued to embrace politics and patriotism throughout her childhood. By the time she was a teenager, she created UnitedForMovieAction.com. She and constitutional attorney, Scott Somerville, contacted the Senate Judiciary Committee about forming a bill to allow people to buy edited modern movies (without the original inappropriate content). Many letters, calls, and meetings were executed until President George W. Bush signed the Family Entertainment and Copyright Act.
As an experienced delegate, Carrie has worked hard in numerous elections. She is a Congressional Award Gold Medal recipient. Now, Carrie is the co-founder of Unite the USA, a conservative web site that encourages Americans to exercise positive patriotism, learn about current events, and become involved as citizens. People such as Rick Santorum, Phyllis Schlafly, Tim Wildmon, and many others have been featured in Unite the USA.
Carrie and her sister, Stacie, are also recording artists who regularly sing for conservative leaders and candidates such as Mike Huckabee and Sarah Palin. Their patriotic CD, In God We Still Trust, was recorded at Bill and Gloria Gaither's studio. Most recently, Stacie and Carrie have written a book called Unite the USA: Discover the ABCs of Patriotism.
Stacie Ruth Stoelting
Stacie Ruth Stoelting is not concerned with political correctness-she is concerned about correcting politics. Her faith drives her, and her patriotism remains contagious. Stacie Ruth grew up in small-town Iowa where she quickly embraced a love for faith in Christ, family, and freedom.
Stacie Ruth has sung for President and Mrs. George W. Bush and several other leaders. She has been pictured in major media (i.e. The New York Times and USA Today), written a book (Still Holding Hands) at age 15, and keynoted conferences since she was a teenager. Stacie Ruth and her sister, Carrie Beth, encourage patriotism and veteran appreciation through word and song.
In 2007, Stacie Ruth and Carrie Beth, witnessed a very gruesome motorcycle accident. Right before the victim bled to death, the girls prayed with him. Stacie recounts, "It was a very shocking experience, yet Jesus has helped us emerge victoriously." Since that time, Stacie Ruth and Carrie Beth experienced a powerful new appreciation for veterans.
What the two sisters witnessed was only a small dose of what our servicemen and women have seen. Veterans are American treasures. Stacie Ruth and Carrie Beth are working hard to encourage veteran appreciation. "Our veterans deserve to be honored. Without them, we would not be free! It is our privilege to offer veterans' respect and appreciation. They are our heroes. Let's value our veterans!"
Stacie heads up an online prayer group called Praying Pals where thousands of Americans pray for our country, servicemen and women, veterans, and leaders. Learn more at www.prayingpals.org.
Today, Stacie Ruth and Carrie Beth, make a great team. Together they speak and sing on TV and radio nationwide. She is a committed patriot and zealously encourages patriotism in others.
