About Colleen Swindoll Thompson

Colleen Swindoll Thompson has tackled—and continues to tackle—some of life’s toughest experiences. Being raised in a Christian home didn’t shield her from a difficult divorce, raising a son with multiple disabling conditions, working through mental health issues, and living with chronic pain. Instead, Colleen’s daily challenges cause her to examine her faith and find meaning in the Christian life. Colleen is known for her witty and warm charismatic spirit, always seeking to authentically encourage others with grace and truth.

In 1993, Colleen graduated with a degree in Communications and a double-minor in Education and Psychology. Colleen’s passion is to connect with and encourage caregivers, domestic-abuse survivors, the disabled, and those struggling with challenges of faith and life. She also loves to integrate real life with God’s Word through writing, speaking at events and conferences, and teaching Bible studies. Apart from work, Colleen treasures time with her family, reading on quiet afternoons, and fulfilling her never-ending wish to win yard-of-the-month through gardening.

Colleen is the author of two books, Reframing Life: Focusing on God When Life Gets Sideways and When Life Isn’t Fair: What They Didn’t Tell Us in Sunday School.
