As a Christian Bible Teacher + Author, Keturah is purposeful about her mission to see women and families thrive despite the challenges they face. After experiencing a family crisis in 2018, Keturah retired from a fruitful career in adult education and family literacy. She soon found herself at the crossroads of tending to the urgent needs of home and making an income. As a woman, some days felt too difficult to bear as the combined pressure of motherhood + marriage adjustments, limited childcare + employment options, and a dwindling personal savings loomed over her head.
In 2019, God led Keturah to begin writing Mommyhood Deconstructed. Reluctant at first, it would take several months of indecision, some encouraging words from another mother, and the gentle push of Keturah’s editor to release the first book of the series in April of 2020.
It’s been a challenging journey, but Keturah considers it all worth it as the stories told continue to combat the myth of the “perfect family” while encouraging the hearts of women and children. Some of her greatest joys were having the honor and privilege of donating her books to non-profit organizations and reading to students at a public New Jersey elementary school for National Read Across America Day (2022). Keturah is super excited to launchBe Well by Mommyhood Deconstructed in order to connect with others and facilitate the sometimes “hard” conversations that can ultimately lead to discovery and breakthrough.
On a normal day, you can find Keturah homeschooling her “spunky” 3rd-grader, walking/praying/meditating in order to stay close to Jesus in this uncertain world, discussing theology with her husband of 15 years, operating her childcare service for special needs children, plotting her next family road trip, and whipping up delicious recipes that feed the mouths of her forever-hungry family!
Keturah’s 20 years of work and volunteer experience began when she first accepted the “call” to serve as a Child Advocate/Family Literacy Teacher in a Domestic Violence Shelter in 2002. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology, a Masters Degree in Education, and is a triple certified facilitator in Bible-based Trauma Healing, Marriage Enrichment, and Parenting Instruction.
Additionally, Keturah was ordained into the ministry of Bible teaching and preaching in 2009 and has been an active speaker at churches, conferences/retreats, nonprofit organizations, media outlets, and community events.
