Sarah Conaway - Speaker, blogger

Sarah is from Hampton Roads Virginia and moved to Omaha with her family in January 2013. In early 2016 she had 2 strokes that left her unable to talk and walk. Through intense therapy, Sarah has regained much of the ability she lost.  Although Sarah has had a myriad of health problems over the past 15 years, the strokes change her life forever.

Sarah's story is a true testament of Jesus's divine intervention. If it weren't for her daughter Alexis needing to go to the emergency room the night of Sarah's stroke, Sarah may not be here today to share her story.

Sarah volunteers with hospice patients, the children's ministry at her Church and is a member of the Bellevue Papillion Rotary Club and Daughters of the American Revolution.  She's excited to be a part of the Wholly Loved team and be able to share how God is continuing to shape her into the person she is today.

 

 

 

 

 

Kristen Terrette - Writer, Thought of the Day, Social Media Kristen Terrette has been an avid reader since childhood, a self-confessed book nerd, and always had characters running through her mind- completely made up of course. She went back to school years ago to obtain a Master's degree in Theological Studies because she felt God's tug towards ministry, but she didn't know then what God had in mind. After five years on staff at her church, she followed God's leading to a different kind of ministry- one with words, love, pain, and real-life characters. She now stays home during the day while the house is quiet writing stories she hopes will bring readers to a stronger understanding of how God works and His love for sinners like us. She always has contemporary romance characters and plots running through her mind and considers romance her first love...but she has a few literary fiction novels up her sleeve as well. Both genres fight for time occupying her mind.

Kathy Davis - Editor

Kathy Davis grew up in a family that served in nearly every capacity imaginable at church, from standing on a chair behind the pulpit singing harmonies with her family to cleaning the building on Saturdays. The one thing she didn't attempt, however, was helping her dad paint the steeple. We all have our limits.

A student of writing since childhood, Kathy updates her journal weekly, creating thoughtful, inspirational prose. Kathy and Jerry, her husband of 39 years, started new ventures when they graduated from raising their four children and from foster parenting. Though one of her favorite things continues to be getting on the floor to play with children at their level, Kathy also blogs and writes for publication, and provides admin support for Jerry in his knife-making business.

Kathy is a contributing author of James Stuart Bell’s book, Jesus Talked to Me Today: True Stories of Children’s Encounters with Angels, Miracles, and God, published by Bethany House. She is also a devotional writer for Warner Press's Pathways to God. Read her regular posts on writing and family with a touch of scripture at kathysheldondavis.com.
