Marti Pieper’s passion to read, write, and pray makes her life an adventure. In 2005, her involvement in a prayer project led her to assist Brent and Deanna Higgins as they told the compelling story of their son, BJ. The resulting memoir, I Would Die for You: One Student’s Story of Passion, Service, and Faith (Revell, 2008) became a young adult best-seller which the publisher has called “a missions classic.”

Today, Marti continues to use her gifts as author, collaborative writer, and editor. She also serves as Director of Prayer and Publication for Awe Star Ministries, a student missions-sending organization, and as mentor/author of the Memoir Course for Believers Trust. Her most recent books include Escape the Lie: Journey to Freedom from the Orphan Heart, written for Dr. Walker Moore, and Out of the Dust: Story of an Unlikely Missionary, written for Avis Goodhart.

Marti is a popular speaker at writers’, homeschool, and missions conferences where she shares the wisdom gained from her experiences in writing, editing, homeschooling, and serving on numerous short-term mission trips. She also speaks for churches, women’s retreats, and young adults on topics related to missions and prayer.

Marti holds a B.S.Ed. from The Ohio State University and M.Div. from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. She is wife to Tom, a worship pastor, and mom to five young adults. Find her on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and at www.martipieper.com.
