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 in 2005, he gave me his name, and I became Katie Faris. Together our greatest works in progress are our five children ages 5 to 16.
A pastor’s wife and full-time mom, I also love to write. My most recent book, God Is Still Good: Gospel Hope and Comfort for the Unexpected Sorrows of Motherhood (Crossway, January 2023) invites women to experience God’s comfort and leads moms to put their hope in Christ, despite the unexpected trials of raising children. He Will Be Enough: How God Takes You by the Hand Through Your Hardest Days (The Good Book Company, June 2022) is a journaling devotional with twenty biblical reflections about God’s character that anchor the soul in hard times. Woven through both books is our family’s story of walking through the difficult diagnosis of our children with a serious medical condition as well as stories of others who found God to be trustworthy in the midst of their perplexities.
Additionally, Loving My Children: Embracing Biblical Motherhood was published in 2015, and I’m a guest contributor for The Gospel Coalition, Risen Motherhood, and several other sites.
A graduate of Grove City College, I formerly served in youth ministry in rural Pennsylvania, taught in Asia, and worked as a copywriter and editor. Our family worships at Sovereign Grace Church in Marlton, NJ.
