Welcome to the place where faith beats fear, discouragement and defeat any day. Kick off your shoes and get comfortable. Let’s journey together.


When the Gals Gather

When The Gals Gather is a community for women looking for hope, encouragement, and some much needed relief from the daily grind. Need a little pick-me-up, or just need to know there’s someone out there going through some of the same things you are? Then welcome home. When us gals together, we’re real, we’re raw, and we always remember that faith in Christ beats fear, discouragement and defeat any day.

Kelly Parker

The short version is that I’m a thirty-something wife and mom trying to make it through this thing called life! Somewhere along the way God captured my heart and showed me the beauty of the love story He has written about His Son, Jesus, and humanity. My life’s mission is to make Him known by speaking, writing and teaching.
