From working on college campuses with Campus Crusade, to sharing the gospel behind the Iron Curtain as a missionary, to traveling around the world as a renowned speaker, bestselling author, and beloved podcaster, Sally Clarkson has been actively pursuing ministry for over three decades. She has a heart to disciple women and mothers to live into the calling God has on their lives.
Sally is considered one of the most influential living Christian women and is the author of over twenty books that have sold over a million copies, sharing her heart for the mission of motherhood, the beauty of home, and the art of education on every page she's written. Her books include bestsellers like Different with Nathan Clarkson (Tyndale), The Mission of Motherhood (WaterBrook), Own Your Life (Tyndale), Desperate with Sarah Mae (Thomas Nelson), Awaking Wonder (Bethany House), and many more.
Sally is the mother of four adult children, who are successful authors, academics, actors, filmmakers, composers, and speakers in their own right. She is married to Clay, with whom she started Whole Heart Ministries in 1994, which has equipped and discipled tens of thousands of parents with biblical wisdom through international conferences, intensives, Bible study networks, and more. Sally and Clay published Educating the Wholehearted Child in 1996, and it has since become one of the most-read books on Christian home education. Sally and Clay's upcoming book Giving Your Words (Bethany House, October 2022) explores the power of words in a child's life.
Sally's podcast, At Home with Sally, now features over 600 episodes and has been downloaded over 20 million times. You can read more about Sally, her family, and her work at www.SallyClarkson.com.
Sally lives between the mountains of Colorado and the cobblestone streets of Oxford, England. She always has a cup of tea in her hand and her golden retriever, Darcy, by her side.
