I’m Kelley Spencer, a Christian mental health advocate.
My passion is to use God’s Word and the wisdom I’ve learned to biblically encourage women who are struggling with mental health or those who want to support someone who is. My heart is to shine a light in the darkness of mental illness, talk about the stigmas that still exist in the Church, bring awareness to suicide, and show you who God is so you can move one step closer to who you are created to be and live with joy.
A quick background about me…
I’ve worked as a hairstylist and makeup artist, digital marketing and social media coordinator, kids ministry leader, stay-at-home mother, and now, Christian author. I’ve chased a few passions of my own, but all those experiences and gifts have led me here to this calling in my heart as a Christian author.
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.
I have God-sized dreams of publishing several books and Bible studies, reaching those who are hurting or discouraged, and using Biblical encouragement to point them to God.
Did you know I’m currently pitching my first book to Christian publishers?
This self-help book encourages Christian women struggling with mental illness to pursue practical steps toward healing mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.
God has been preparing my heart to share my most vulnerable and painful moments with the world. It will be focused on the intersection of mental health and my faith in God. I know God is going to help me reach the community of women who need to read it! (Perhaps that is YOU?)
