Gwen Smith is a volleyball enthusiast who lives in sunny North Carolina and has been married to her hunky college honey, Brad, for 22 years. They are tired parents to three competitive-sport-playing teens who keep them on their toes and on their knees. Her online friends meet at GwenSmith.net to connect and be encouraged, and her ministry goal is to help women think big thoughts about God and be inspired to live out the grace and truth of Jesus. Gwen’s next book, I Want It All, Exchanging Your Average Life for Deeper Faith, Greater Power, and More Impact (David C. Cook) releases in March, 2016. Gwen speaks, leads worship, and eats potato chips at women’s events everywhere, and she is a co-founder of the conference and devotional ministry Girlfriends in God.
