Originally from South Carolina, Rebekah McLeod Hutto is a graduate of Wofford College and Duke Divinity School. She is a Presbyterian U.S.A. minister currently serving in New York City at Brick Presbyterian Church. She and her husband, B.J., are raising their children to love the diversity and culture of New York City. As a child Rebekah was surrounded by stories and one day hoped to write engaging stories for children. The Day When God Made Church is her first children's book and was inspired by her love for this Church holiday and how God is always able to do a new thing among us.
