Meet the Allume Community Writers

Logan Wolfram - AllumeLOGAN WOLFRAM
Executive Editor
@lifefordessert

Logan is the Executive Director and Host of Allume who most loves to write, connect, and encourage women.  Daughter of a most extravagant and hospitable King, wife to Jeremy, and mother to 2 wild and inquisitive little boys, her days are filled with a combination of routine and plenty of the unexpected.  No stranger to broken dreams, she has found that a curious following of the Ultimate Creative, Jesus, has led her into a faith that is fuller and a life that is more exciting.  Stay-at-home-mom and interior decorator, turned writer and Allume CEO and host, Logan consistently finds that God doesn’t necessarily call the equipped, but he will always equip the called. Despite the attempts of her contract-eating, mail-intercepting, massive dog, Titan, Logan’s first book is set to release Spring of 2016 with David C. Cook. She blogs at LoganWolfram.com

Christin Slade.jpgCHRISTIN SLADE
Managing Editor
@christinslade

Christin is the contemplative, detail-oriented, over-planning, list-maker type. Maybe it has something to do with her addiction to office supplies, particularly pens. She is determined to smooth out the wrinkles of any operation.

Her goal is to care for the community of Allume to help cultivate a rich experience of connectivity and hospitality. The fellowship of women is a powerful and crucial element of growth for both the woman, and the community as a whole. The beauty of raw, genuine, and deep kindred is a necessity for healing and friendship.

A wife of 14 years and mother to seven, her days are full of plenty of busy and goodness. Christin writes to encourage, equip, and motivate moms and mom writers at ChristinSlade.com.

Erika DawsonERIKA DAWSON
@Erika_Dawson

Erika would much rather find out about you than talk about her and would far prefer going deep over coffee than writing a concise bio blurb. But if you really want to know, Erika is crazy about her jungle-born, turned computer-geek husband and adores her three full-of-energy, sometimes feisty, little ones. Erika really is your typical mom next door, except that she has “tasted and seen that the Lord is good,” and that changes everything! Burning deep in her soul is the truth that “God’s steadfast love is better than life,” and it has transformed her. She is passionate about prayer, God’s Word {and praying God’s Word!}, and her heart is for encouraging women in their faith and championing them as they impress God’s truth on the hearts of their children. Erika shares the lessons she’s learning in marriage, parenting, and living a life surrendered to Christ on her blog, erikadawson.com. You can also find her on twitter and facebook.
