Author Colleen Carroll Campbell


Thanks for stopping by my online home! I’m an author, speaker, journalist and former presidential speechwriter – as well as a wife and mom of four who loves good books, tough hikes and quiet moments with God (when I can get them). My passion is connecting today’s busy women and men with the spiritual wisdom of those who went before us and sharing my own stories and struggles so we all feel less alone. I hope you’ll make yourself at home here and join me on this journey.
