Mary Kathryn Tiller met her husband at Texas A&M University in 2005. She resisted his charms all freshman year, but his persistence and gorgeous grey eyes won out and in 2010 they were married. Because he had deep roots (and the only job between them) in East Texas, they promptly moved from the big city of Houston to the small town of Marshall, Texas. It was a difficult adjustment, but she has come to truly love the people and pace of East Texas. She serves as the Women's Ministry Team Leader for Mobberly in Marshall and teaches online as an adjunct professor at LeTourneau University. She currently stays at home with her two babies (a 3-year-old daughter and a 10-month-old son). She loves spending time on their family farm, indulging in a second (ok, third) cup of coffee, and nerding out over theology books. Her personal blog is www.FarmGirlGospel.com, where she writes about motherhood, ministry and encourages women to run with abandon as they pursue Christ.
