My name is Katie. Just Katie.

My parents considered “Katherine” and “Kathleen,” but knowing they wanted to call me Katie, that’s what they named me. When I married Scott fifteen years ago, he gave me his name, and I became Katie Faris.

Together our greatest works in progress are our five children ages 3 to 14. I wrote Loving My Children: Embracing Biblical Motherhood in 2015, and I currently blog and write articles.

A graduate of Grove City College, I formerly served in youth ministry in rural Pennsylvania, taught in China, and worked as a copywriter and editor.
