Jonathan McKee

Jonathan McKee is author of a dozen books, including the award-winning Do They Run When They See You Coming?, and most recently, The Guy’s Guide to God, Girls, and the Phone in Your Pocket (April 2014) and Get Your Teenager Talking (May 2014).

Jonathan’s readers get a regular dose of him from his blog where he provides a steady glimpse into the window of youth culture as well as tips for youth workers and parents, helping them connect with young people today. When Jonathan’s not writing, he’s speaking at conferences and events across the U.S., tapping into his combination of research and 20 years youth ministry experience. Jonathan connects with his audiences with his humor, storytelling, knowledge of youth culture… and his authenticity!

Jonathan, a husband, and a parent of three teenagers, shares the common struggles that moms and dad’s experience every day, and provides the simple but helpful lessons learned from each laughable moment. Jonathan lives in Northern California with his wife Lori and his three teenagers Alec, Alyssa and Ashley.

Jonathan’s next book, 52 Ways to Connect with Your Smartphone Obsessed Kid, will be published by Barbour in December 2016.
