Rebecca lives up north in the Yukon, one of Canada's territories. In the summer, she gardens; in the winter, she sits by the fire doing jigsaw puzzles or reading huge books of theology. She enjoys her three grandbabies all year round. Rebecca is a choir member and librarian in a Baptist church. She has been blogging since January 2004 at Rebecca Writes.

Kim lives in southern Ontario, Canada.  She is married, and a mother of three young adults.  A former homeschool mom, Kim enjoys reading, theology, teaching the Bible to women at her local church, all kinds of music, and recently, taking pictures.   She has been blogging since 2005 at The Upward Call.

Persis is a single, working, former homeschooling mom who lives in Southeastern Virginia. She is a bookworm with a fondness for dead theologians, a tea drinker, and a fabric collector. After years of misguided assumptions, she desires to see and live life through the gospel. Persis loves her local church, where she helps out with the library, women's ministry, and music. You can find her at Tried With Fire.

Staci lives in Southeast Missouri. She and her husband Todd are the parents of three children. In their local church, Todd serves as an elder while Staci teaches Sunday School and serves in the library and nursery. She is the author of The Organized Heart, and has been blogging since 2004 at Writing and Living and tweets at @WritingLiving. She also helps behind the scenes with social media and marketing for Cruciform Press. When she's not writing or driving her kids somewhere, she enjoys reading, jogging very slowly, and rooting for the St. Louis Cardinals.

Lisa lives a very ordinary life in Alabama with her husband, four sons, and dog. Passionate for women to know the gospel grace that is found in Jesus Christ, Lisa teaches Bible study, volunteers at the crisis pregnancy center, and serves her local church. A few of her favorite things include coffee, chocolate, and a good book and the best sorts of days find her on her back porch enjoying all three.
