Meet J.R. Heimbigner

J.R. Heimbigner lives with his wife and three daughters in the beautiful countryside of eastern Washington state. Their five-acre hobby farm creates a wide-open space that has brought him and his family closer to God over the last few years.

While he started his writing journey trying to help people chase their dreams, it continued into the productivity and self-help spaces before God took hold of his heart and directed him to start sharing his faith through his writing.

Now, you will find him looking for ways to help connect people with the creator of the universe. Not pushing his faith on people, but sharing it with those who are open to having the conversation. His books have been written in the same manner. Openness, honestly, and stories of experiencing a faith journey that he wants to share with others.
