About this author

Former Bad Girl, grateful for the grace God offers. Happy wife of Bill, one of the Good Guys. Proud mom of two grown-up kids with tender hearts. Lame housekeeper. Marginal cook. Pitiful gardener. Stuff I love? Encouraging my sisters in Christ—across the page, from the platform, online, in person. Unpacking Scripture. Traveling wherever God leads. Listening to his heart. Leaning into his embrace.

With God, it’s all of the above:

Chasing God

Chasing God is a brilliant, funny, honest take on doubt...and faith. Angie puts it all on the page, with enough theology to feed the mind, enough pathos to touch the heart, and enough humor to tickle the funny bone. Terrific read.
