Jodie McCarthy

Jodie is a writer, speaker, poet and mother. An unashamed words girl who writes to process the myriad of experiences of life.

In her writing and on her blog she investigates the journey of life: the beautiful; the painful; the everyday; and the mundane. She has a heart for encouraging women on their life journey, particularly when that journey traverses the harder places of grief and pain.

Jodie writes candidly about her own personal grief, sharing her insights as a way of opening the way for healing.

In July 2019, she released her new book, Beauty in the Ashes: Learning to Lament. Through her reflection, poems, and sharing stories of pain and loss, Jodie invites you to discover the importance of lament; and how the hurt and the healing are intertwined.

She blogs regularly over at You can also find her on social media a little more than is necessarily good for her. On the days when she is not writing you will find her in her kitchen, usually licking the beaters from a chocolate cake.

Jodie loves to connect with her readers and you can find her on her blog, Facebook, Instagram, or Pinterest.
