Beth L Olson

I am a mom/blogger/writer helping influencers live in peace. I post a blog each Monday morning to get you set up for a successful start to your week.

My top posts are: Our Failed Adoption, Can a Godly Person Have Boundaries? and The Time My Son Almost Had a Brain Tumor.

My parents were missionaries with YWAM when I was growing up. We lived in Louisiana, Texas, Mexico, and Central America. When I was 19, I joined YWAM's Mercy Ships South Pacific for about a year.

Shortly after that I got married to my best friend, Christopher Olson, and started filling our home with little people. I have four amazing kids, Judah, Levi, Elijah, and Zoe.

In 2002, God called us to Ankeny, Iowa to support Christopher's brother, Dave Olson, who had just become the senior pastor of Heartland Church. It is an honor to be a part of the Heartland Church family.

I love my life. I love being a wife to an amazing man and being a mom to both my natural and spiritual kids. God has been so good to me!
