As Colleen Swindoll’s faith was sifted to the core, a hope-filled foundation began to take root through a relentless examination of God’s truths and a daily dependence on the empowering work of the Holy Spirit.
Her experience as a caregiver, ongoing physical pain, education in psychology, and certification as a life coach have given me an unwavering passion to encourage and equip caregivers and their families with truths and tools that help them live well regardless of life’s ever-changing circumstances.
Colleen has spent most of her life living in the states of California and Texas. In 1993, she graduated with a degree in Communications and a double-minor in Education and Psychology. Her husband is her hero, and combined they have five witty, creative young adult children. She treasures time with her family, reading on quiet afternoons, and, when her body lets her after back surgery, fulfilling her never-ending wish to win yard-of-the-month through gardening.
Learn more about how she has learned to navigate faith and real life in her books, Reframing Life: Focusing on God When Life Gets Sideways and When Life Isn’t Fair: What They Didn’t Tell Us in Sunday School.
