Anna Pepperling was born and raised in Colorado where she still resides with her husband and in close vicinity to all three of her children and seven grandchildren. She has played many roles in life, including pastor’s wife, homeschooler, and caregiver for the elderly. But behind her exterior roles, she is a trauma survivor, writer, reader, and child of God. She writes about faith, abuse, healing, sexuality, and femininity. Occasionally, she pens a casual article about her fur baby, Spurgeon, who is named after the Prince of Preachers, Charles Spurgeon – and sometimes lives up to his namesake.
