Pamela Thorson


Pamela Thorson is a nurse, author, speaker, and full-time caregiver. She is the owner/administrator of a certified family home in Idaho, juggling her official duties with her love of research and writing.

Pam and her husband pioneered in the homeschooling movement from 1982-2006, educating all five of their children at home. Two of her children are second-generation home educators.

A near-tragedy in her family in 1997 became the catalyst for her writing journey. Her middle son’s fight for life after his devastating spinal cord injury in Canada introduced her to the world of disability and launched her into advocacy for the pro-life movement. Her book Song in the Night relates the true account of her son’s injury, the fight against euthanasia, his return home, and God’s miraculous work in her family through it all. Her second book, Out from the Shadows: 31 Devotions for the Weary Caregiver, is endorsed by Joni Eareckson Tada and offers hope to those who care for others.

Her appreciation for life led her to interview and gather the stories of her community’s elders into the book Arrow: The History and People of an Idaho Community, Vol. One. This volume documents the rich history of the rural community of Arrow, Idaho—land of the native Nimìipuu and Lewis and Clark.

Sent to her room with the rest of the country during the pandemic, Pam researched and wrote the award-winning end times thriller Blood Falls. She is a regular contributor for the Christian music (and more) website CMADDICT.COM, where you’ll find her treasury of articles and devotions. A member of ACFW, Pam lives in her beloved community in the Northwest with her family.
