Claire Wood

Claire is a native Southerner and graduated with her M.A. in English from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, where she spent several years teaching in the freshman composition program. She and her husband Ryan, along with their three children now call home anywhere the Army sends them! Claire enjoys trying new recipes, reading on her screened porch, spending time with her family, and entertaining guests. She's been documenting life on her blog since 2008; these days she muses about the challenges of living out her faith as a military wife, the importance of goals and reflection, homeschooling her kids, and her love for reading at elizabethclairewood.com. She recently released her book, Mission Ready Marriage as a resource for other military wives who may need hope for navigating the often challenging lifestyle.

What Women Are Saying

"Ungrind is for any woman who has ever felt alone. Alone in her stand for truth. Alone in her insecurities. Alone in living out her potential. It is about community and finding worth first in God and second in the specific purposes He has for women. Reading Ungrind is like sitting down to a cup of coffee with your girlfriends and discovering you're not the only one."

-- Suzanne Hadley Gosselin, author of Expectant Parents: Preparing Together for the Journey of Parenthood
