Creating vs. Consuming: A Conversation with Courtney Ellis
Food and Faith Podcast
With Anna Woofenden and Sam Chamelin
Courtney Ellis is a pastor, speaker, and author of Uncluttered: Free Your Space, Free Your Schedule, Free Your Soul, and Almost Holy Mama: Life-Giving Spiritual Practices for Weary Parents. A graduate of Wheaton College and Princeton Theological Seminary, she lives in southern California with her husband, Daryl, and their three children.
Her bylines include Christianity Today, MOPS International, Fathom Mag, The Mighty, and (in)courage. She is a regular contributor to The Glorious Table and has been featured on Two Peas in a Podcast and The Ride Home with John and Kathy.
A regular speaker for MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers), leadership retreats, college and teen events, Courtney is an engaging, hilarious, winsome, and thoughtful presence on the stage.
Courtney grew up in northern Wisconsin where she and her two younger sisters figure skated in sequined leotards until they discovered ice hockey. She reads too much, can’t make herself enjoy yoga, and hits the trails near her home when life gets too life-y.
The proud owner of a $.29 goldfish she’s kept alive for over a year (this is a big accomplishment for someone who once killed a cactus by under-watering), she’s never met a sour gummy treat she doesn’t like.
