Annie Yorty, wife, mother, writer, and speaker, extends hope and encouragement to those living through difficult situations. Centered and dependent on her heavenly Advocate, Annie finds daily purpose and passion by advocating for God and others.

Annie publishes a weekly blog, Perceive God. She also writes devotions, Bible studies, and Christian living articles for Living by Design, The Christian Journal, Refresh, and others. She is a regular contributor to the family section at Crosswalk, and her work is published in Chicken Soup for the Soul and an upcoming book compilation.
