About The Editor


I write when I breathe.

Jo McClelland - Editor

Jo McClelland gave away everything she owned (except 13 boxes of books). She traveled from the great Rockies of Canada to the Blue Mountains of New South Wales looking for things she’s never done before. Turns out, Dorthy was wrong - what she lost wasn’t in her own backyard, it was in her shoes.



Pink. Faith. Strong.

Visit Jo’s blog, Monday through Friday, and follow her journey of faith in an unpredictable, and sometimes scary, world. Read about things she still believes although times are hard. Through it all her faith gives her hope and that makes her strong. Share your experiences with Jo and be a witness to the miracle of how a little bit of faith transforms the darkest times into something pink.

Follow Pink. Faith. Strong.
