Longer bio: Natalie Brenner is the author of This Undeserved Life. She is also a writer, speaker, mom, and photographer.
Originally from the two-stoplight town of Harrisburg, Oregon, Brenner gave up driving tractors and moved to Corvallis where she met her now-husband. Together, they helped to plant a church, built a youth ministry out of scratch, and fundraised their entire income. After this short season, their career paths shifted entirely as did their home, and they moved to Portland, Oregon. She now writes and photographs for a living, raising two one year olds, and spurs others on to chase their dreams. Her heart beats for justice and Jesus, creating spaces for every fractured soul. Natalie is addicted to honesty and believes honesty is at the core of a full life.
Natalie's rapidly growing blog, NatalieBrennerWrites.com, has been visited by more than sixty thousand people since January 2017. Her work has been featured in Adoption.com, Pregnant Chicken, Adopting.org, Shelley Skuster Writes, Today SHOW, Parents, and more. She is a lover of life and breather of grace and hopes to always love bigger than before.
