Have you ever wondered what the writing process looks like for an author who is blind? Get a sneak peek at the writing of Amos as we sit down with author Jennifer Rothschild and Lifeway’s Mike Wakefield. Listen in to hear about their unique writing process as author and editor and how that relationship is so important.
Jennifer became blind when she was fifteen years old and has experienced firsthand how God gives us courage through His presence, His people, and His Word. Now, more than thirty years later as an author and speaker, she boldly and compassionately teaches women how they can take courage.
Known for her substance, signature wit, and down-to-earth style, Jennifer weaves together relatable stories with biblical truths to help women know and live for Christ. She has shared her practical and inspiring messages to audiences across the country and through media outlets including: The Dr. Phil Show, Good Morning America, Life Today, and The Billy Graham Television Special.
She is the featured teacher and founder of “Fresh Grounded Faith Conferences,” host of the 4:13 Podcast, and publisher of the popular online resource for women in ministry called WomensMinistry.net.
Jennifer and her husband, whom she calls her “very own Dr. Phil,” live in Missouri, and have two sons, Connor and Clayton, and a lovely daughter-in-law, Caroline. She’s also GiGi to her two grandsons, and that’s her favorite name of all!
Besides walking—or being walked by—her little dog Lucy, Jennifer enjoys riding a bicycle built for two with her husband. She is also an avid listener of audiobooks, a C. S. Lewis junkie, and loves dark chocolate and robust coffee—especially when shared with a friend.
Mike Wakefield has served in various editorial positions at Lifeway Christian Resources for almost twenty years. Currently he works as a content editor on the Women’s Bible Studies team. He and his wife Tricia live in Thompsons Station, TN, and are grateful for and proud of their two grown children, daughter-in-law, and two precious grandchildren. He loves playing golf, working in the garden, and is a huge fan of the St. Louis Cardinals.
