BVN Member Interview: Meet Author Meghan Weyerbacher

Meet Blogger Voices Network Member Meghan Weyerbacher!

Meet Meghan Weyerbacher

Please start by telling us a little about yourself.

I am a child of God, wife of 15 years to my hardworking husband and mom to three kiddos. I live in the country surrounded by farmland and woods, but not too far away from small town hustle and bustle. And I won’t argue with that since I am what they call a hybrid-introvert.

I love my personal space so I can focus on creating/writing, but when I need to be around people (serving at church/school & good ol’ grocery shopping), I can adapt well and am the friendly type–leaning on the goofy side. I would blame my mom but I am pretty sure God had some say so in how he wired me. ; )

Favorites:

  • Hobby: reading
  • Movie: Old Fashioned
  • Genre: Romantic Comedy (if it’s the clean kind)
  • Season: Autumn
  • Holiday: Christmas
The Weyerbacher Family

Why? I love getting sucked into a world (reading) and can’t get enough inspiring love stories. I don’t even get to read or watch them much, but the ones I did and loved were worth it. And lastly, I love Christmas because I love pine trees with a passion, the scents that come with this time of the year–and I always pray for snow. Who wants cold without a pretty white blanket? Not this gal. Oh–and I love picking out gifts for people.

List one unique fact about you.

I come up with sometimes multiple songs daily. The melodies and simple words of worship just come. Everytime I think there’s no way a new one could surface–it does. I stopped recording them or keeping track due to this–and enjoy the art of this style of worship more now because I can just focus on Jesus instead of the results, which is why I started singing in the first place.

Meghan Weyerbacher’s Book

How was the idea for your book born?

This story in particular came to me in June of 2018. I had to scramble to write the two pages worth of info coming at me.

As a new author, what is your favorite part of the writing/publishing process?

The part after I get the details researched and panned out, characters created, etc. Actually painting the picture in my mind, with the words. I love waking up and looking forward to getting my word count in.

What is the main thing you want readers to take away from your book?

That there is hope despite the darkness.

Writer Wisdom from Meghan Weyerbacher

Are there any nuggets of wisdom you can impart to aspiring writers?

Never give up. Keep writing for an audience of One (the people He wants to see it will find it).

Don’t be afraid to network with people who aren’t quite like you. Don’t try to do everything or you’ll burn out and it will seep into other areas of life. Give yourself freedom to at least take one small step toward your deep, inner conviction–the thing that makes you come alive.

Meghan Weyerbacher's work space

Who are some authors in your genre that inspire you?

I grew up reading Janette Oke and imagining one day, I’d write books like her. To this day, she is my favorite. I would sit and drink up these books as a preteen/teen.

Francine Rivers is another. I was gifted Redeeming Love at a time when I was not living for the Lord. It spoke to my heart and at the time I didn’t realize it was by a Christian author!

I write modern, not historical–but both of these women had a lot to do with my love of love stories. I also love Tricia Goyer who wrote Moms Night Out; my second favorite movie!

What are some great books you’ve read recently?

Henry and the Chalk Dragon (my kids loved this!) and The Innkeeper’s Daughter are two of my favorite fiction reads from this year.

Meghan Weyerbacher’s Spiritual Growth

The Weyerbacher Family

Who is your mentor? What’s one truth you’ve learned from him/her?

I have more than one, I truly believe, but Sue Moore Donaldson has been this for me over the past year and a half. She has helped me feel not so alone during some really hard times, and she has helped me understand it is not a sin to say “no.” Her wisdom is helping much confusion to break off, so peace can begin to restore.

What is your most favorite verse/passage and why?

Then, by constantly using your faith, the life of Christ will be released deep inside you, and the resting place of his love will become the very source and root of your life. Eph 3:17 The Passion Translation

It speaks to the area of daily faith practice and inner rest practice, all led by Him who is love–this is simple for my mind to comprehend and remember so it is becoming a favorite for me to meditate on!

Describe a significant time in your life and how God carried you through.

Meghan Weyerbacher with her husband

When my husband was on the road working all the time, the depression I was suffering from became really bad. The times my mom would come over and sit with me, and just listen–helped to pull me out of that pit.

I pray we never underestimate the power of a listening, attentive ear.

When she told me stories of her past battles and I could see her sitting here with me now, she didn’t have to give advice really–it was the power of “I understand” and “I am here for you” that God used to hug me with, I truly believe.

She was my Jesus in the flesh during that time, and still is in many ways.

  1. Love getting to know you better, Meghan! It was fun to meet you in person a few years ago and even more fun to watch from afar as you do big things. Congratulations on your book baby!

    1. I loved meeting you, Anita!
      I still brag on “my adventure friend” to this day–haha.
      And thank you!

  2. Congratulations on your book, Meghan. Thanks for sharing with us. Blessings to you.

    1. My pleasure, friend! I love making up worship songs, too. It’s what makes me come alive. For the last few years I mostly make up songs for my kids the “Bubbles” song for washing hands and the “Brush Your Teeth” song. lol But I want to start writing songs for church again. Love all these pics of you, and I like the long hair best. It amazes me how fast you wrote and published Organic Love. Can’t wait to read the rest!

      1. Keep on writing!
        I loved when my hair was healthy and long.
        Starting over will hopefully help it to be this way again.
        Love you mucho my friend!!!

  3. Hi Meghan, nice to meet you 😁. I love the idea that worship music just flows out of you – what a great way to worship God!

  4. Hi Meghan!!
    So wonderful to read/learn more about you! And what a great shout-out to the lovely Sue Donaldson! (She’s one of my faves too). 🙂
    I LOVE that you regularly come up with your own worship music/melodies! What a cool gift!
    And the fact that you came up with the idea for your book in June, and 3 months later.. bam! What?! This is crazy to me! I can’t get myself to even write the first chapter of my book! Lol

    1. Rachel,
      I’ve struggled with finishing one for years!
      I would start (I think I started about 6 LOL) and they just didn’t feel “right” at the time.
      Not that they were wrong but I needed to learn more, or figure out the plot.
      This one just downloaded quick and I guess I knew I needed to write it before I chickened out or stopped believing I could. And courage is contagious even to myself so I am writing #2 now. That’ll preach right?! lol

  5. It’s so cool to learn more about Meg. The more I know the more I realize that she and I are “kindred spirits” and I hope to meet in person one day. Blessings and love to Kelly and Meg!

  6. I enjoyed reading about you, Meghan!
    I’m glad you are writing fiction. I was a Jeanette Oaks fan, too. We need more Christian Fiction like that. I know God will bring your dream about, for He is the author of it.

    1. Ann,

      I can’t get enough of her stuff–and I am finding a few more younger authors I love as well.
      It is is a joy to finally bring stories to life, finish them and share them.
      Thank you!

  7. Congrats on the book! It’s so inspiring to watch women chase their passion with their God-given talents.

    1. Thank you Kat!
      It has taken yeeears but I am more grateful I think because of the lengthy journey, maybe.
      Just thinking out loud lol.

  8. Kelly – thanks for sharing the interview with Meghan today – I learned some new things I hadn’t learned from my interview with her – it was awesome!

    Meg! I just love you! I love your bright, bold, passion for life personality. You make me smile, and laugh and you are an incredibly talented and gifted writer! I am looking forward to your next book, I am hoping its the one about the PNW so that way you have to come visit me and do research first hand – I am serious about that. Really, I am! 🙂 I was born in raised in Oregon (lived there 28 years) and have lived in WA State for 21+ years) I enjoyed getting to know you more from this interview and I am excited for your first book baby to be out in the world! Go Meghan XOXO

    1. I feel the same way about YOU!
      I remember the first time I saw you lived that way and Matt was in the room.
      I am pretty sure I choked or something because that is where we’d always talked of moving if we ever randomly uprooted and went were we wanted lol. I have more than one book that needs research in that area and honestly, I would travel just to see you if I could. I lived out of state for a while to help a friend who was sick, while Matt was over the road and I homeschooled. I am no stranger to bold adventures, but somewhere I got weary and started believing the wrong things so I think that is why my boldness is back with a bang–I want to share with people the truth that they don’t have to listen to those lies!

  9. I enjoyed getting to know more about you Meghan. Congratulations on the book. I’m looking forward to reading it soon!

  10. Hi Meg! I really enjoyed learning about you and your passions, family, writing, music. Your comment about how your Mother supported you by being there and listening particularly touched me. And yes, simple being physically present and listening is a reflection of how we are all called to best support one another and be a reflection of God’s love. Looking forward to continuing to get to know you!

    1. Thank you for your kind words, Anne.
      It is true! Do you hang around on a certain social media?
      I love connecting with other writers outside the blogs too!
