Author. Explorer. Wife. Poet. Mom.

not necessarily in that order


Jill Dyer is a writer, mom of four adventure-worthy kids, wife to one lion-hearted man, and a woman who fell hard for Jesus. She holds a certificate in Trauma Care from The Allender Center in Seattle, Washington. She lives in Sisters, OR and loves to backpack, run trails, pray and play. 

15 years ago Jill and God had a reckoning. It was an unexpected stand-off of f-bombs and truth-telling. Jill emerged different. Touched to become real. She left the world of pretending and religious duty and tip-toed into a strange world where God is a dad, Jesus a lover, and the Spirit a tender comforter. This world is unpredictable and her wild heart fits here within a God who made space just for her.  It is a daily act to heal and hold that this world is true.

The song of her wild heart is sung here.

“He is the Way.
Follow Him through the Land of Unlikeness;
You will see rare beasts and have unique adventures.”
— W. H. Auden
