Hi, thanks for reading the site and coming to say a virtual ‘hello’ by reading this page. I’m a wife, a mom, an author, and freelance copy writer. How do I balance all of that? I’m very fortunate to have a supportive husband, and my kids are older now. Could I have done this when they were babies? Heck no. As it is there are things I have to let slide, like housework.
Full disclosure: I am a Jesus-loving, Bible-reading, hymn-singing, Mathew 25-type Christian. Politically, I’m a Theodore Roosevelt-type progressive. I’m for the little guy, truth, justice, and the American way as long as it’s not America First and forget everybody else. In the blog I often post about culture and faith and politics definitely comes up, but I try not to drag out my soapbox and rant.
I’m a graduate of Gordon College where I earned a BA in English and Sociology. I’ve been an editorial assistant at a publishing company, a research assistant for a biotech firm, a program coordinator for a human-services organization, an admin for a finance department, a call-center manager, and a bunch of other things. I’ve traveled most of the world, and traveled enough of the United States to be able to say there are no such things as coastal elites and fly-over states when you take the time to get off the highway and meet people where they live. This country would be a better place if more people made the effort to do just that.
So, please feel free to check out the content here and get in touch with me if there’s something else you’d like to see or to say hi.

And in case you were looking for my Official, fabulous author bio, here it is:
Christa MacDonald is a 2017 Carol Award finalist for contemporary Christian fiction. She began her writing career at the age of eleven, filling a sketchbook with poems and short stories. After publishing a few short pieces in her college’s literary magazine she took a long hiatus during which she embarked on a few different careers, got married, had three kids, and renovated an old barn masquerading as a house. The Broken Trail, published by Mountain Brook Ink, was her debut novel. Her second novel, At The Crossroad, released in October, 2017.
When not working or writing Christa can be found ferrying her kids around, reading, or attempting something crafty. She and her family live along the coast of New England.
