Who is Lucy Marfleet?
I am an author, encourager and educator. I think widely and try to tell the truth in imaginative ways.
I care deeply about family life, food, finding patterns and faith lived out through social justice. My husband Matthew and I have two children: Elizabeth (born 2007), known as Lily and Joseph (born 2010) and we live near Cambridge in England. I am currently working on devotionals and a fiction manuscript which is academically informed.
I have degrees in Theology from Durham University and the International Baptist Theological Seminary (Biblical Studies). I am also a trained teacher and have worked in schools and prisons. My writing stems from a passion for the Old Testament and for those on the edges. I wrote a personal blog at jamandgiraffes from 2006 until 2018 and love writing and thinking about words and language.
I have recently started working as a part-time tutor for Spurgeon’s College on their Equipped to Minister course for lay preachers and ministers.
