Jill Roman Lord is a wife, mother of three amazing kids, runner, author, writer, nurse anesthetist and Jesus lover. She and her husband Bill, have just recently entered a  new phase of their lives and are learning to navigate the new Empty Nest Years. While they loved every aspect of raising kids and sending them on their ways, this empty house is a new thing requiring adjustments which they are enjoying together.

Jill has run for a longer length of time than she has done anything else in her life. At this point she’s blessed to be able to say that she has been running for well over 35 years. Running is her stress reducer, anxiety reducer, fat reducer, cholesterol reducer, escape from daily chores and fun producer. It’s her time with God (among other times), her time to focus, her time to dream, to imagine, to create. It’s her time to push herself, explore and spend time with her dog, Poppie. She has run  5K, 5 mile, 8K, half-marathon races and one marathon. She loves running with her kids when they’re around and willing.

She is an author of Christian Children’s books which can be found on her Books Page. It is her desire in her writing to draw children closer to Jesus and to provide books that parents (or grandparents or caregivers) can enjoy reading with the kids snuggled on their laps.
