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 north 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 — my newest accomplishment — 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!

What I’m working on…

Writing my first few chapters and preparing a book proposal. This story has been burning inside me for a few years. God is preparing me to share my most vulnerable and painful moments with the world. It’s a story of an ongoing battle with mental illness and what God has taught me through it all.

quote from Sweet Tea for the Soul: Comforting, Real-Life Stories for Grieving Hearts

In my spare time, you’ll find me digging my hands in the dirt (I love to garden!), my head buried in a book, hiking a local trail, or planning my next adventure. I enjoy living an active lifestyle, so I’m happiest when I’m outdoors, running, biking, on a paddleboard, or practicing yoga.

I’m honored to be included on Alli Worthington’s Women Worth Following list for November 2021. Check out this recent feature article by Alli Worthington!
