I'm a professional author and speaker who loves encouraging hurting and harried women to lean on Jesus--and take themselves less seriously.
As a busy mom, wife, author, and speaker, Dena Dyer adores her life—but there are days when she wants her own mommy! Thankfully, she has God, her mom, and a counselor on speed dial. Dena is married to Carey and they have two boys, Jordan and Jackson. When she’s not desperately trying to find her cell phone, she's at her keyboard or in her favorite reading nook. Her writing credits include the books Wounded Women of the Bible (Kregel, 2013) with Tina Samples, Let the Crows' Feet and Laugh Lines Come: Rediscovering Beauty and Self-Worth at Any Age (2010, Barbour), Grace for the Race: Meditations for Busy Moms (2004, Barbour), and The Groovy Chicks Road Trip series (2005, 2006, Cook, co-authored with Laurie Copeland and a lot of groovy girlfriends), numerous compilations and anthologies,and magazines such as Family Circle, Redbook, Ladies' Home Journal, and Parenting. Her hobbies B.K.--before kids--included scrapbooking, watching old movies, and decorating. Now, her interests (obsessions?) are cooking, napping and hanging out with friends.
When the opportunities present themselves, Dena loves to speak to groups, lead worship, and give television and radio interviews. But her favorite place of all is home, where she nests with her three "boys" and tries to ignore the dust.
I enjoy reading, cuddling with my boys, dates with my hubby, "Chick Posse" nights with my girlfriends, browsing thrift stores for fabulous finds, cooking, and traveling.
