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 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.

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