About the Author
Pam Hogeweide is a writer and blogger from Portland, Oregon. She writes extensively on issues of faith, culture and Christian spirituality with a focus on gender inequity in the modern world of church. A former contributing author for Off the Map, Pam’s writing style has been categorized by many as engaging and inspiring. Growing up in the neon-drenched city of Las Vegas, Pam became a follower of Jesus when she was barely out of high school. Instead of going to college, Pam joined Youth with a Mission and served in Hong Kong for seven years. Pam says her mission in life is “to be the most effective communicator I can be for the sake of others,” and she is currently pursuing a communication degree at Marylhurst University. When she’s not busy with her husband and two teenagers, Pam can be found hanging out with her faith community in north Portland, The Bridge, “one of the rowdiest churches I’ve ever been a part of,” she says. You can find Pam at her blog or on Facebook and Twitter. She’s not hard to spot: she’s the loud one with the pretty tattoos.
