Hi! I’m Hilary Bernstein. I’m an author, blogger, and former journalist who loves to encourage women of all ages — both in print and in person.

I’ve been writing (and writing and writing!) since I was in kindergarten, which was right around the same time I asked Jesus to be part of my life. Knowing and loving Him more and more, then writing and teaching other women about Him are some of my favorite things.

After graduating with a bachelor of arts in journalism, I’ve spent my entire adult life writing and editing, from magazines like Worldwide Challenge and Christian Mission, to newspapers like The Medina Gazette, to blogs like Home to a Haven, to books for Barbour Publishing.

I’ve also spent most of my free time leading women in Bible studies and transforming my homes into havens — whether I’ve lived in teensy apartments, retro split levels, or my family’s current cozy bungalow.

I absolutely love spending time with my husband, teenage son, and pre-teen daughter in our home in Ohio. My life’s greatest stretch is homeschooling our kids. For fun, I like to host friends and family, enjoy live theater and concerts, plan family vacations … then watch my travel plans come to life.

I’ve sworn off most social media (and feel so incredibly free because of my decision!), but I do love Pinterest and e-mailing my subscribers. Join the club! I’d love to e-mail YOU, too!
