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.

My book Loving My Children: Embracing Biblical Motherhood was published in 2015, and I currently blog and write articles as a guest contributor for The Gospel Coalition, Risen Motherhood, Women Encouraged, Servants of Grace, and Her View From Home.

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. Our family worships at Sovereign Grace Church in Marlton, NJ, where my husband serves as a pastor.
