Robin Dance

pensieve.me@gmail.com

Southern as sugar-shocked tea and in a scandalous affair with her college sweetheart, Robin is mom to two in college with the third almost there. She believes the kitchen table is a sacred alter, first classroom, and safe refuge, where the currency is spoken in love and good food. She hates "cooking close" and shoe shopping (gasp!), loves snail mail and surcies, and finds holy communion where sand meets surf. She's also rumored to make the best apple pie in the world. In addition to writing at robindance.me, you'll find her at The Art of Simple, {in}courage and Deeper Story.

Mary Bonner

In the beginning, Mary Bonner usually share the basics. Married to her best friend John for 30+ years. A grown son & adding a daughter-in-law soon. Currently living in the Northeast, but a part of her heart is in the Midwest.

When you move on to deeper subjects, she may share about some of the heartbreaks she’s experienced. The loss of a child and a parent, or a debilitating illness. But through it all, one thing remains constant: The Lord’s comfort, peace and strength.

God used the tragedies of life that threatened to bankrupt her family and instead used them to deepen her faith and change her for the better. She loves to cook, entertain and share a glass of wine with friends and believes a stranger is just a friend she hasn’t met yet. You can find her on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and writing at www.marybonner.net

Managing Editor

Grace is a writer, wife to a chef husband, and mama to two littles. She is learning to love what must be done in the mundane rhythms of life, and her favorite way to connect with people is to gather them around the table and fill their bellies with good eats and their souls with words of truth. Writing has become her way of worshiping God and leading others, and she hopes people will feel welcome not only in her home but also in the places she writes for online. Aside from Grace Table, she's a contributing writer and editor at The Mudroom, and she writes on her own blog at www.gracepcho.com.

Abigail Murrish

abigailmurrish@gmail.com

I was born and raised outside Indianapolis, which means I smelled cow manure and watched corn fields pass by as I rode with my family to concerts and museums in the city’s downtown. I now make my home in an enclave of Cincinnati with my husband and our yellow lab mutt, Lupin. Talking and writing about food, whether it’s in an Indiana field or on my kitchen table, is my passion. Brene Brown writes that she “doesn’t trust a theologian who dismisses the beauty of science or a scientist who doesn’t believe in the power of mystery.”

I couldn’t agree more, especially when it comes to our food. For me, food is one of my great sources of joy.

Kristen Kill

killfam@gmail.com

Kristen Kill is a woman transformed by the delight of God. She loves coffee, gingerbread, and staying up late with her nose in a good mystery. She believes there is something sacred in lighting candles, in setting a beautiful table and inviting others in. Most days she can be found attempting to learn how to cook, redecorating any given room instead of cleaning her house, and homeschooling her five hilarious children. 

A contributing Editor at The Better Mom, and co-host of At Home, a popular podcast with Sally Clarkson, Kristen is passionate about encouraging women who feel stretched thin. She believes that tension is where we can learn to live expectant for the music and melody God is singing over of each one of us. She writes about home, creativity, and flourishing at her blog Hope With Feathers (kristenkill.com)

After spending the last seven years in the hustle of New York City, she and her husband, Josh, are learning to go slow as they raise their family and walk their anxious hound dog in the Pacific Northwest. Her first book, Finding Selah is due from Zondervan in 2018.
