Kelly Minter is an author, Bible teacher, and podcaster. Her most recent Bible study from Lifeway publishers is called Encountering God – Bible Study Book: Cultivating Habits of Faith Through the Spiritual Disciplines. Kelly speaks around the country and also works closely with Justice & Mercy International in the Amazon jungles of Brazil as well as the Eastern European country of Moldova.

Kelly is deeply passionate about teaching the Bible and believes it permeates all of life. Her love for the Word of God led her to create her Cultivate Event, an event centered around Scripture, worship, prayer, and mission. She is also the host of the Cultivate podcast, a weekly podcast where she walks through Scripture with her listeners.


When she’s not writing, traveling, or speaking, she enjoys time in her garden, cooking, and being with her friends and family. A Southern transplant, she delights in long walks, her local church, meaningful conversation, and coffee in her Justice & Mercy International diner mug.

In this episode, Kelly discusses:

  • How God clearly thwarted her plans for a music career and steered her into Bible teaching and how women can adjust when they sense God doing this in their own lives
  • Her most recent study on the spiritual disciplines and through which one she most encounters God
  • Her process for writing Bible studies
  • Her love of cooking and why sharing meals within community is good for Christians
  • How we image God in cooking and gardening
  • Her work with Justice & Mercy International, a non-profit organization that exists to make justice personal for the poor, the orphaned, and the forgotten of the world, primarily serving in Moldova in Eastern Europe and in the Amazon region of Brazil (IG: @justiceandmercyint)
