About this author

I grew up with a steady diet of William Shakespeare and Jane Austen. After all that literary immersion, I naturally decided to get a degree in mathematics, which came in handy when one of my six children needed help with homework.

“I cannot give up chasing after happiness simply because there might be pain down the road.”
Jennifer Beckstrand, Kate's Song

“Grief is a stern teacher, but I am confident I could not have learned some lessons in any other way. For that, I am grateful. Grateful to God for loving me enough to stretch me and push me and crush me, to refine me in the furnace of affliction, to force me to stretch my faith beyond what I could see.
God loves me more than I can possible comprehend. He watches over me. He watches over all of us. But if the way were easy, how could we grow into who He wants us to be? How could our faith become unshakable?”
Jennifer Beckstrand, Kate's Song

“Every choice involves some kind of pain. Choosing one path means rejecting another along with everything down it.”
Jennifer Beckstrand, Kate's Song
