On Defying The Odds and Sharing Hope with Kayla Craig - Episode 41


Kayla is a full-time journalist turned work-at-home mom to four young kids. She wrote for print and digital publications at Meredith Corporation and the Des Moines Register before transitioning to work-at-home mom mode. Her oldest son joined her family via international adoption, two more sons joined the old-fashioned way, and her sweet daughter completed their family via a domestic special needs adoption.

Kayla has been hitched for nine years to her husband Jonny, who pastors The Bridge church in Johnston. She cares deeply about living an authentic life of faith and her heart beats for amplifying voices of those who are often unheard. Kayla attended Drake University, where she majored in magazine journalism and minored in English and sociology.

When she’s not changing dirty diapers and refereeing lightsaber duels, she enjoys hammering out stories and recording episodes of Upside Down Podcast, where she co-hosts conversations on life and faith.
