About Angie Smith:
Angie is married to Todd Smith, lead singer of the Dove-award winning group Selah and mom to five daughters. In 2008, the Smiths received news that their fourth daughter, Audrey, would not survive after birth. As a means of communication with friends and family during those difficult days, Angie began blogging about her grief, struggle, and ultimately, hope. Audrey's story in book form, I Will Carry You began a beautiful movement of helping families with their own dance of grief and joy. Now a nationally-recognized Bible study teacher and best-selling author of multiple adult and children's books including Seamless: Understanding The Bible as One Complete Story, Chasing God, and What Women Fear, she is most passionate about making the Bible feel accessible and relevant to women. Angie holds a Master's Degree in Developmental Psychology from Vanderbilt in Nashville, where she and Todd call home.
