Angela Thomas's Bio:

Angela Thomas is an ordinary woman and mother, with an extraordinary passion for God. She has been honored to collaborate with women of all ages and walks of life and is a renowned national speaker and best-selling author of 10 books and Bible studies, including Do You Think Iím Beautiful?, My Single Mom Life, and her upcoming release from Howard Books, Do You Know Who I Am? (October 2010).
A graduate from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Angela also has a masterís degree from Dallas Theological Seminary. She has been teaching the Bible for more than 25 years, and is known for her entertaining and engaging stories and faithful biblical instruction.

Before becoming a popular author, Angela developed a reputation as a gifted national speaker on topics such as single motherhood, the Christian womanís heart, parenting and issues surrounding teenage girls. She speaks to more than 70,000 women each year, often joining other great women of faith in workshops, national conventions and the Extraordinary Women national conference tour. In addition, she has written and filmed four video studies with LifeWay publishing, including the acclaimed series, When Wallflowers Dance.

Angela candidly shares the struggles she has faced and the victories God has brought to her. Drawing from her firsthand experience, she desires to encourage women who have undergone or who are walking the path of divorce, single parenthood and remarriage. In her early career as a part-time youth director, Angela married and had four children. On the outside, she seemed to be living the life every woman dreams of, but then the unthinkable happened Ė divorce. Through her wounds and the unfamiliar territory of life as a single mom, Angela learned how to rely solely on God for strength, hope and comfort. During that season, she wrote, My Single Mom Life, a book of lessons that chronicles her experience of overcoming the stress and fears that come along with being a single parent.

Angela resides in Greensboro, N.C., and enjoys making her husband, Scott, and their four children, Taylor, Grayson, William and Anna Grace, her main priorities.
