Mo Isom is the New York Times Bestselling author of Wreck My Life: Journeying from Broken to Bold and the author of Sex, Jesus, and the Conversations the Church Forgot. She is a nationally sought after speaker, a popular faith-based blogger and a zealous voice rising up for her generation.

She is Christianity Today magazine’s youngest and first female Managing Editor. She landed this position after launching “her.meneutics”, Christianity Today blog for women, which provides news and analysis from the perspective of evangelical women.
At age 27 she went through a major life event that seriously upset her identity and sense of purpose. So naturally, she decided to write a book about work, vocation, and identity, which came out in 2016 from Simon & Schuster / Howard Books. She speaks regularly on faith and work, women’s vocation, writing, and evangelicalism.
Katelyn has written for The Washington Post, The Atlantic, and The New York Times and has commented on faith and culture for CNN, ABC, NPR, the Associated Press, Religion News Service, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, and McClatchy Newspapers.
Katelyn in her own own words said “the most important thing you should know is that I love words and believe they can change the world…….When I’m not doing all the things with the words, I enjoy spending time exploring Chicago, running, karaoke, traveling, and finding the perfect IPA.”
