Author Stasi Eldredge


John Eldredge is an author, counselor, and teacher, and former director of a theater company. He loves the outdoors passionately, and all beauty, Shakespeare, bow hunting, anything having to do with adventure, poetry, March Madness, working in the shop, fly fishing, classic rock, the Tetons, fish tacos, George MacDonald, green tea, buffalo steaks, dark chocolate, wild and open places, and horses running. He also uses the expression “far out” way too much.

Stasi Eldredge spent her childhood years in Prairie Village, Kansas, and she took a partiality to her now-husband John when they were friends in high school. She has been active in theatre ministry, crisis pregnancy center ministry, women’s ministry, and children’s ministry. Stasi loves baking, getting lost in a good novel, a powerful turn of phrase, freshly mowed grass, family traditions, the Tetons, and the grace and beauty of horses. The Eldredge family lives in Colorado.



Living With Defiant Joy
Stasi Eldredge

Unwavering helps us defy the powers that threaten to destroy our souls and steal our joy. Through the practices of Bible study, discussion, journaling, reflection, worship and contemplative prayer, learn to remain unwavering in the face of numbing loneliness, the whiplash of unexpected crisis, the gripping fear that buries our dreams, the desolation of waiting, and sad endings that leave us hopeless. God means for us to have a joy that is defiant in the face of this broken world.



Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman's Soul
John and Stasi Eldredge

Most women think they have to settle for a life of efficiency and duty, striving to be the women they "ought" to be, but often feeling they have failed. Sadly, too many messages for Christian women add to the pressure. "Do these ten things, and you will be a godly woman." The effect has not been good on the feminine soul. But her heart is still there. A thirst rises within her to find the life she was meant to live, the life she dreamed of as a little girl. In this video Bible study by Stasi Eldredge, the message of Captivating is that your heart matters more than anything else in all creation. The desires you had as a little girl and the longings you still feel are telling you of the life God created you to live. He offers to come now, as the Hero of your story—to rescue your heart and release you to live as a fully alive and feminine woman. A woman who is truly captivating.
