Hi! I’m Steph Williams. I’m a writer and recovering-lawyer-turned-teacher. 🙂 I hope to inspire and encourage people who may be frustrated or overwhelmed by life rediscover their joys and passions so that they can live with purpose, the lives they were created to live.

I’m a Christian, mom, and writer. I live in Hot Springs, Arkansas with my husband, 3 kids, and so many pets I’ve lost count.  I worked as a lawyer for almost 10 years before finally admitting (to myself and everyone else) that I hated it. Busy running the rat-race, I always felt like something was missing. So I began teaching as an adjunct at several local secondary institutions. I’ve taught freshman writing classes, paralegal classes, and law school classes.

Focusing on God, family, and writing and teaching, I now feel whole.

I recently published a book on keeping your focus on God while raising kids called How to Be a Good Mom (Or at Least Not an Epic Failure). Click the menu link above for more information.

I’ve maintained this blog and website, albeit infrequently at times, since 2008. I mainly write about my faith, raising children and writing, with a healthy dose of pop culture for the fun of it.
