Melinda Means is a weary soul in need of refreshment from the only Source who can quench our thirst. After years of chronic pain and questioning God’s plan, she has found the joy of seeking the Healer more than the healing.

She is Women’s Director at her church and co-author of Mothering From Scratch: Finding the Best Parenting Style for You and Your Family (Bethany House, 2015). Also a professional speaker and writing coach, Melinda’s work has appeared in Focus on the Family publications,, and Lifeway’s Journey devotional for women. She and husband Mike are parents to two teenagers, Molly and Micah.
