Jen Pollock Michel is a writer based in Toronto. She’s the author of several books, including Surprised by Paradox. On the podcast, she describes the road that led her to writing, the relationship between her vocations as a writer and a mother, and the place women writers occupy in Christian publishing.

She also talks about A Habit Called Faith, her new book that invites seekers, skeptics, and Christians alike to explore a deeper encounter with Christianity through a 40-day experience in the book of John and the book of Deuteronomy.

Jen’s new book is available now at Amazon and wherever you buy your books.
