About Me

I’m Kelley Spencer, a Christian author, wife to my high school sweetheart, mother of two boys (and one angel in heaven), gardener, traveler and mental health advocate. I grew up in the suburbs of Minneapolis, Minnesota.

As newlyweds, we moved to Clearwater, Florida for a five year-long adventure, but decided to move back to Minnesota to raise our family.

I’ve worked as a hair stylist and makeup artist, digital marketing and social media coordinator, kids ministry leader, stay-at-home mother, and now, Christian author.

I have God-sized dreams of publishing several books and Bible studies, reaching others who are hurting or discouraged and pointing them to God. Adding one ‘lost sheep‘ to His eternal kingdom makes everything worth it!

I’m working on preparing a proposal for my first nonfiction, self help book. This story of an ongoing battle with mental health has been burning inside me for a few years. God has been preparing my heart to share my most vulnerable and painful moments with the world. I’m incredibly excited to share what I’ve learned about the brain and what God has taught me through it all. It will be focused on the intersection of mental health and my faith in God.

In my spare time, you’ll find me digging my hands in the dirt (I love to garden), relaxing with a book, hiking a local trail or planning my next getaway. I enjoy living an active lifestyle, so I’m happiest when I’m outdoors — running, biking, paddle boarding, or practicing yoga.
