Gwen Smith is a popular conference speaker, author, worship leader, podcaster and volleyball enthusiast who lives in sunny North Carolina and has been married to her hunky college honey, Brad, for 25 years. They are tired parents to three tall, competitive-sport-playing young people, ages 17-21, who keep them on their toes and on their knees. Her online friends meet at GwenSmith.net where she helps women know and trust God more. Her podcast, GRACEOLOGY with Gwen Smith, has fun, faith-focused, grace-filled interview-style conversations with practical tips and honest discussions to encourage women in meaningful ways to live out and lean on the grace of Jesus in the midst of cluttered, messy days. Gwen speaks, leads worship, performs concerts and eats potato chips at women’s events everywhere, and she is a co-founder of Girlfriends in God.
Those who know her best would tell you that Gwen is just a coffee-drinking, bargain-shopping, dark chocolate-craving, Jesus-loving wife and mother who struggles like the rest of us with dirty dishes, everyday life, messy piles, mountains of laundry, complicated relationships and cellulite.
