        Tracy L. Smoak                         Portrait of Tracy Smoak

"My passion is connecting people with God, particularly when they face challenging times. In addition to writing, my adventures include racing horses in orange groves, teaching men in a maximum-security prison, and sharing Bible stories inside a ger in Mongolia.

I love flower gardening, photographing nature, and eating chocolate. Please check out the tabs for blog devotions, books, and videos to comfort you with Bible passages relevant to what you need today."

Smoak contributes to Guideposts. She authored several books, three with her original color photography, and holds a master's of education. Her blogs post weekly on Saturday.
