Rebecca is investing her life in writing and speaking on topics that she believes the church needs to hear. Whether she is helping people understand what it truly means to wait on God, or how to use their imagination, Rebecca brings a new perspective to relevant topics.
Before dedicating herself to writing full time, Rebecca worked with Trinity School of Durham to develop the curriculum for the humanities department; she worked as an English teacher at public and private middle and high schools in Durham and Pittsburgh; and for several years, she homeschooled her children.
Though Healing Maddie Brees, Rebecca's debut novel, she has been writing for most of her life. Rebecca's personal essays on her blog "Small Hours" at rebeccabrewsterstevenson.com have earned her a strong audience of readers who enjoy her explorations of themes relating to family, marriage, faith, healing, writing, language, literature, and film.
Rebecca is currently at work on a second novel, Church + Main, and on a work of Christian non-fiction about waiting on God. When not writing, Rebecca can be found volunteering at her church, working in her home and garden, spending time with her family, or working out at her Crossfit gym.
