Becky Thompson is the author of Scissortail SILK, a blog that draws a global audience of millions. Speaking to the often overlooked struggle of balancing life as a wife, mother, and a daughter of God, Becky has a captivating way of becoming the voice for women in need of hope, healing, and the Father’s love. Becky’s candid way of sharing her heart extends an unspoken invitation for women to feel as though they have gained a friend and realize they aren’t alone. Her blog grew dramatically in 2014 from an average monthly audience of 1,000 to 1.5 million when she switched her message from fashion to hope.
She became a work-at-home mom when her first son was born in 2009 shortly after becoming a sought-after and highly successful wedding and portrait photographer. A self-professed city girl, Becky is a recent transplant to northwest Oklahoma, where she lives with her husband, Jared, their three young children, and whatever critters wander in from the wheat field behind their house.
