Gillian Marchenko has given birth in three places, the most interesting being Kiev, Ukraine. She is an author and national speaker who focuses on imperfect faith, special needs, depression, and deep belly laughs. Gillian's memoir Sun Shine Down published in August of 2013 (T. S. Poetry Press) and she is currently working on another memoir about depression and faith (InterVarsity Press). Her writing has appeared in numerous publications, including Chicago Parent, Literary Mama, Thriving Family, Gifted for Leadership, Today's Christian Woman, MomSense Magazine, The Lookout, Charlottesville Family, EFCA Today, and the Tri-City Record. You can find Gillian on any given Sunday bouncing a toddler on her knee in the back row of the Chicago church her husband pastor's while giving her older girls the look. Gillian says the world is full of people who seem to have it all together. She speaks up for the rest of us. Get to know Gillian more on Facebook.
