Hi Friend,

So nice to meet you (though I wish it was face-to-face at the beach or over coffee). I am the Founder and Director of Wonderfully Made®, a national ministry for young women and the women who love them. I spend my days writing, speaking and helping girls and women thrive and live into their God-given value and identity.

My book Wonderfully Made: Discover the Identity, Love, and Worth You Were Created For is a guidebook to help teen girls and women discover the life they’ve been made for.

As the host of the Wonderfully Made podcast alongside one of my best friends, I interview some of the world’s most inspiring and influential women of faith, and yes, I still get nervous sometimes!

I have had the privilege of sharing my story of hope with millions of people on TV, the radio and in podcast interviews.

“I praise you because I am fearfully [lovingly] and wonderfully made.” – Psalm 139:14

These two words “wonderfully made” became an anthem over my life pointing me to the Source of my true value and identity, after depression told me I wasn’t worthy of living.

I was the good girl and scholar athlete hiding behind a smile as I worked overtime to keep it all together. But at the age of eighteen, I came undone. Two weeks after I graduated high school, due to a mental health challenge and many complexities, I found myself in the psychiatric hospital wanting to end my life. 

I was as broken as a girl could be. Jesus found me there and though my journey has been full of detours and breakdowns, I live loved by the God who has mended the broken pieces of my life together and given me more purpose and joy than I ever could have imagined.

I’m a California girl and lover of bluegrass who is always covered in dog hair. When I’m not stringing words together, hosting our podcast or overseeing the ministry of Wonderfully Made you can find me surfing and adventuring up and down our golden coast with my husband Paul and our Golden Retriever Gidget.

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet. I would love to hear from you here or finding me on Instagram.

With Love, 

Allie
