Jeanne (Brown) Hedrick has been writing about life with Jesus for over 30 years. Her passion for the Word of God shines through all her articles and devotionals. She began writing “Adventuring with God” in 2006, sending it to friends through email. In March 2009 she began sharing it on WordPress to a wider audience.
Drawing from the collective wisdom of other Christian thinkers and hymn writers, as well as her own spiritual experiences, “Adventuring with God” highlights the common struggles, setbacks, and challenges all disciples of Jesus face. Jeanne enjoys acquainting readers with time-tested authors from the past to help bring balance to our current perspective on Christian living. She’s also passionate about presenting Scripture in its broadest context, hoping to avoid unnecessary divisions and doctrinal disagreements within Christ’s body. She chooses to “major on the major and minor on the minor” whenever possible.
Jeanne has lived in two countries, the United States and Canada. She’s been married for over fifty years and has four children, fourteen grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. Since becoming a Christian in her early thirties she’s helped her husband plant three churches in Canada. She’s also worked as an editor and proofreader for Bethany House Publishers and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. She’s attended and served in a variety of church denominations. Her spiritual passions are prayer, Bible study, and worship. Her life verse is John 12:24. Her goal is to truly abide in Jesus all day, every day, for the rest of her life.
She and her husband (Tony) currently work part-time as missionaries in Western Europe, helping indigenous church planters reach their communities and challenge popular secular culture. They both love mentoring and encouraging younger Christians to live fully for Jesus. They also share a love for good food, hospitality, and college basketball.
Jeanne is working on publishing a book that will explore seven critical areas of surrender that can influence spiritual growth in followers of Jesus.
