Katie Powner

Katie Powner lives in rural Montana, where cows still outnumber people. Her passion for red shoes and thought-provoking stories originated with her Grandma Julie, who gave Katie her first pair of red All-Stars and read every ridiculous story Katie ever wrote as a child.

Katie and her husband have been in youth ministry since 2005 and strive to keep their hearts and home open to any child who needs a place to belong. They love being biological, adoptive, and foster parents.

Katie’s blog about family, foster care, and adoption can be found at www.katiepowner.com. She is also a contributor to Foster Focus magazine, a two-time OCW Cascade Contest winner, a two-time ACFW First Impressions winner, and a two-time ACFW Genesis Contest finalist. You can find her on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, where she loves connecting with people from all over the world.
