Abby McDonald has a passion is to empower women to grow in faith and hope, even when life is messy. As a mother of three, her love for writing was re-birthed during the cracks of nap time, and she’s been showing up at her keyboard ever since. She is the author of Shift: Changing Our Focus to See the Presence of God, and her work has been featured in numerous places, including (in)Courage, Crosswalk, For Every Mom, and more. As a certified writing coach, she encourages women to pursue their God-given dreams, and loves to teach at writing conferences each year. When Abby’s not wrangling her kids and black lab while drinking copious amounts of coffee, you can find her reading, writing and coaching. Abby lives with her husband and three children in western Maryland.
