My name is Bethany Wallace. I have served as creator/author of this space since 2009.

BethanyWriting is my jam. I started writing stories in first grade. Long, terrible stories fashioned after Babysitter’s Club books. My mom thought I was the best writer on the planet. She was probably wrong, but her encouragement helped me continue writing, and that’s what matters.

My current focus is on and my service through Wycliffe Bible Translators.

I published my first book, a collection of original poetry, in June 2020, entitled Hindsight 2020: A New and Selected Poems by Bethany Wallace. You can purchase the collection here. I published my series, Mama Meditations: Devotional Book & Gratitude Journal for Moms, Volumes I and II, in 2021. You can order Mama Meditations on Amazon. 

I earned a Master of Arts degree in English Language and Literature at Arkansas Tech University and Bachelor of Arts degree in English at Lyon College. When I’m not writing creatively, you might find me serving prospective missionaries through Wycliffe Bible Translators, volunteering at my church, hiking, baking, or helping leaders to build better workplaces through my consulting business, Bethany Wallace Communications & Consulting,
