Oswald Chambers and Biddy Chambers

Oswald and Biddy Chambers

I’ve written a biography called  Mrs. Oswald Chambers which will be released in fall 2017 by Baker Books.

Some of these blogs posts about Oswald and Biddy Chambers were published before I wrote the biography, but here they are if you are interested in Biddy Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest, as well as Oswald Chambers, his life, his family, his friends and his ministry.

I will be writing or revising posts about these subjects on Fridays throughout 2017–the 100th anniversary of Oswald’s death and the 90th anniversary of the original publication of My Utmost for His Highest–which has never been out of print.

My Newsletter

Interested in Oswald and Biddy Chambers? I’ll be telling stories about the amazing ways God led me through the writing of two books about them, 

starting in my January newsletter–one a month for 2017, free.

If you’d like to follow the serial–the same chronological way it unfolded for me–sign up for my newsletter here.

In addition to Mrs. Oswald Chambers, I also have written an essay for Discovery House’s Utmost Ongoing: Reflections on the Legacy of Oswald Chambers which will release in summer 2017.

If you are looking for a speaker on any of these subjects, please take a look at my speaker page here.
