About

happy

Ellie teaches US history to middle schoolers and is in the thick of raising two teenage boys. She’s married to Charlie and will tell you over and over again that he’s the best second chance she ever got.

Raised by an evangelical pastor and public school teacher, Ellie learned from a young age about the value of community and serving others.

Ellie makes her home in small-town Tennessee with her family and immerses herself in the outdoors or a good book every chance she gets. She writes about her personal failures and struggles, faith, relationships, grace, and whatever bee is in her bonnet as of late. To get in contact with Ellie, please click here.
