Becky Baudouin

Becky Baudouin is an author and speaker. She is the author of Enjoy Every Minute and Other Ridiculous Things We Say to Moms, and Cancer, Faith, and Unexpected Joy: What My Mother Taught Me About How to Live and How to Die. A former columnist for Chicago's Daily Herald newspaper, her three daughters supplied her with enough material for a five-year-run with her column, "A Mom's Point of View." Several of her articles have also been published in Focus on the Family's Thriving Family magazine.

Becky loves speaking just as much as writing, and speaks regularly at MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) groups and women's events on topics such as parenting, marriage, and faith. She believes in the power of groups and helps lead marriage and grief workshops, walking alongside those in seasons of difficulty and loss. She loves to cook, and her favorite place to be is around her dining room table, sharing great food and connecting with family and friends.

Becky grew up in northern Michigan and now lives in the Chicago area with her husband, Bernie, and their three daughters. Find out more at
