Meet the Author

Katie Pickard is committed to seeking the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Her writings are an offering of both devotion and discipline to the One who called her to “do this in remembrance of Me.”

Originally from the land of crawfish and Mardi Gras, Katie has lived in 15 cities, 7 states and 3 countries. She completed some seminary, but took a break when she moved to Virginia to marry her best friend. God’s call has led her to adventures in life-changing small groups, youth ministry, missions, preaching and writing. In addition to her musings here by the Firelight, these days Katie is also a member of the Daily Fast Fuel writing team where, together with four amazing women of faith, she can be found serving up devotionals every week on a diverse selection of topics. At the end of the day, Katie gives most of her focus to her own “youth group” consisting of two, very short, Pickard men.

Katie, Phillip and their two sons currently reside just north of Houston, Texas.
