Erin Lane

Erin S. Lane is the author of three books, most recently Someone Other Than a Mother: Flipping the Scripts on a Woman's Purpose and Making Meaning beyond Motherhood. After a decade of being purposefully, prayerfully childfree, she and her husband unexpectedly adopted three school-aged girls (who, much to her delight, do not call her "Mom.") Educated as a theologian and trained as a vocational facilitator, her happy place is helping people discern their shyest and wildest questions of purpose. She lives in Raleigh, NC, with all manner of kin, human and not.
