Author and women's ministry speaker
Scarlet Hiltibidal Bio
Scarlet Hiltibidal is the author of Afraid of All the Things, You're the Worst Person in the World, the Anxious Bible study, and other books. She writes regularly for ParentLife Magazine, HomeLife Magazine, and She Reads Truth. Scarlet enjoys speaking to women around the country about the freedom and rest available in Jesus.
Growing up in the green room of Saturday Night Live, being born to a fire-eater and adopted by a SWAT cop, having internal organs explode, and adopting a Deaf girl from China, Scarlet has had some strange life experiences--and lived in fear through most of them. But life changed for her when she learned to hold the gospel up to her fears. She understood that though she can't fix herself or protect herself, Jesus walked into this broken, sad, scary place to rescue, love, and cast out fear. Scarlet's mission is to help others experience the peace and joy of knowing that Jesus loves them, not because of anything they've done right, but because He is merciful and faithful and good.
Before Scarlet started writing, she earned a Bachelor's degree in Biblical counseling and worked as an elementary school teacher. These days, she and her pastor-husband live in Southern California, where she loves sign language with her three daughters, nachos by herself, writing for her friends, and studying stand-up comedy with a passion that should be reserved for more important pursuits.
