A writer and a poet, Dr. Wills is dedicated to the ministry of encouragement and helping people experience hope, wisdom, and faith in their spiritual journey. She has written for a number of publications, including The Journal of the Fort Smith Historical Society and Issues and Inquiry in College Learning and Teaching. She previously served on the board of the Arkansas Community Foundation as an appointee of Governor Mike Huckabee.

Dr. Wills makes her home in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains in Fort Smith, Arkansas, with her husband, Paul.


"Wills' book touched my heart! The diverse themes with the ever-prevailing golden thread of God's consistent and unconditional love are the message we are pursuing when in need of encouragement. This is a book that you will go back to from time to time for words that resonate with your life challenge of the moment."

—Sister Judith Marie Keith
