Author Heidi Bratton

Heidi Bratton is a Catholic wife, mother, author and photographer whose favorite superheroine is Elastigirl from Pixar’s movie, The Incredibles. This comes, in part, from having six children stretched over 18 years, three now grown and out of the house and the other three still growing and very much nestled in. Part comedy, part tragedy, part insanity, and part incredibly mundane, Heidi writes about her life as a spouse, a parent, a home educator, a friend, and more in order to encourage other woman in the adventure of living a life set apart for Jesus. Heidi has written over 17 Christian books for children and their parents, the newest of which are "Homegrown Faith; Nurturing Your Catholic Family" and the "Celebrate" series of four board books. Heidi currently calls Michigan home, but has also enjoyed living in MA, CA, NH, MN, WI, and IL. Connect with Heidi through her website or at her email [email protected]
