Before you read my formal bio, I'd love for you to know this about me:
I'm just a girl who loves Jesus, a boymom who needs Him more and more every day, a wife whose husband loves her way more than she deserves, and a sinner whose past no longer defines my present. If you don't remember anything else about me, like where I went to college, or how many books I've written, just remember those things? Because they represent the real me...the one who's probably a lot more like you than you might think. We're in this together, friends, and I'm here to help you find hope in the messes of daily life.
Brooke McGlothlin received her B.S. in Psychology from Virginia Tech (1999) and her Masters in Counseling from Liberty University (2003). She served for over 1o years as Director of Clinical Services in local Pregnancy Care ministry before making the best choice of her life—staying home with her boys. Brooke uses her ministry experience to reach women, writing to bring hope to the messes of life (in the midst of her own messy life). Find out more about her limited speaking availability, here.
In 2010, Brooke co-founded TheMOB Society with Erin Mohring, where parents are encouraged and equipped to raise godly men. You can find her writing at The MOB Society blog about fighting for the hearts of her sons, and raising godly men. Her books include Praying for Boys: Asking God for the Things They Need Most (Bethany House, January 2014), The Praying for Boys Companion Guide, Hope for the Weary Mom: Where God Meets You in Your Mess and the Hope for the Weary Mom 40-Day Devotional (Harvest House, co-authored with Stacey Thacker), and How to Control Your Emotions, So They Don’t Control You: A Mom’s Guide to Overcoming (an ebook). Her newest book, Gospel-Centered Mom: The Freeing Truth About What Your Kids Really Need releases from Waterbook in August of 2017.
Brooke has been a featured blogger at LifeWay’s ParentLife blog, the Proverbs 31 Devotional Site, and Ann Voskamp's A Holy Experience. She's the creator of the Fight Like a Boymom program, designed to empower mothers of boys to fight FOR their hard-to-handle boys instead of AGAINST them, and Daily Essentials Community, where women gather to learn about Jesus, healthy living, and essential oils.
While she wears many hats, her central focus is on living out the Gospel of Jesus Christ every single day, and bringing hope to the messes of life.
Her life verse is Psalm 116:2 (NLT). She was introduced to it by her friend and co-author, Stacey Thacker, and has held tightly to it ever since.
In the fall, she morphs into a slightly different person. Most Saturdays you can find her jumping around the room and screaming at the television as she watches her beloved Virginia Tech Hokies play football.
