Meet the Contributors

Dana Boyd

Dana is a lifelong lover of words with a passion for sharing stories of the heart—both her own and others. Her writings draw from her experiences as a woman, a writer, a wife, a mother of three, and a Bible-believing Jesus follower. She is a defender of truth, an avid proponent of common sense and a recovering (often relapsing) perfectionist still learning to lean in to grace. Her writing is an honest outpouring of her introverted heart, driven by a longing to inspire others to feel deeply, think critically and act compassionately.

Dana shares her words as a monthly contributor at DoAhead Woman.


Lauren Fletcher

Lauren Fletcher is a mother of 3 sons (and yes, she’s lived to tell about it!), a grandmother, first grade teacher, speaker, writer, and Bible study teacher. Her writing and speaking are infused with God’s Word, humor, and often, “what just happened.” Lauren’s deepest desire is to encourage other women to love the Lord with all of their heart, soul, and mind.

Lauren is a monthly contributor to DoAhead Woman.


Jodie Barrett

Jodie is a wife, mother of two teens, speaker, teacher and blogger! Her passion is teaching women the Word of God to help motivate and encourage them to strengthen their faith walk. She looks for joy in the everyday things like laundry, waiting in line and cooking, considering each an opportunity to share God’s love with others!

Jodie contributes monthly to DoAhead Woman but you’ll most often find her with ministry partner Donna, teaching a Faithfully Fit exercise class or leading a Faithfully Following bible study or conference. To read more visit Jodie at
