Marla Taviano is the author of From Blushing Bride to Wedded Wife (Harvest House, 2006), Is That All He Thinks About? (Harvest House, 2007), Changing Your World One Diaper at a Time (Harvest House, 2008), Expecting (Howard, 2009), The Husband’s Guide to Getting Lucky (2011), and Once Upon the Internet (2012).
Her biggest passion is loving the poor, seeking justice, and sharing the hope of the gospel–in her city and around the globe. She and her husband and their three young daughters recently returned from a 5-week trip to Cambodia where they loved on orphans, helped fight human trafficking, and experienced God in amazing ways. They’re praying for the chance to go back.
In the meantime, Marla will continue to write (mostly blog posts and e-books these days) what God lays on her heart. “I write books to support my missions habit,” she says with a grin.
She also does a number of speaking events each month on just about any topic (yes, including sex).
Marla and her husband, Gabe, live in Columbus, Ohio and have three daughters—eleven-year-old Olivia Joy, ten-year-old Ava Marie, and six-year-old Nina Gabriel.
Once upon a time, the five of them went to 52 Zoos in 52 Weeks, but that’s a whole ‘nother story.
