More About Nancy E. Head

Having come from an impoverished background, Nancy Head is now a teacher, author, blogger, media guest, Bible study leader, and speaker, encouraging and equipping audiences to pursue lifting up those in need. Discover how to reason, speak, and write well for the glory of God and help others to do the same. 


Nancy E. Head was a single mother with five children under the age of 14. The family endured hard days. There were programs to help, but in many ways, those programs were designed to make those in need permanent fixtures in an impersonal system. Programs intended to help seemed instead designed to make people stand still in life.

But one factor made all the difference for this family. It was the ministry they received from Christians of various faith traditions. Government programs provided physical needs, but not all needs are material. A welfare check doesn’t heal the kinds of wounds divorce and poverty cause. But the love of Christ does.

As the ensuing years have passed, Nancy has come to realize that much that separates Christians from forming community efforts to lift up the poor are distortions and misunderstandings about doctrinal differences. Nancy sheds light on these misunderstandings--while acknowledging our authentic differences. Despite those differences, however, Christ's Church can come together and make a difference for families in need. 

This type of ministry doesn’t force people to stand still in life. Instead, it lifts them to a new place. It doesn’t just provide.It encourages. It brings healing.

And it showed Nancy that the Church is bigger than she thought.

Nancy found varied faith communities working together effectively in Christian education. In this realm, Nancy's passion became teaching the art of communication through reasoning, speaking, and the written word. She loves to advise parents and fellow teachers about how to lift students' skills in the areas of logic, close reading, and oral and written communication.

Nancy is excited to spread the messages of hope and restoration and better learning. She wants to show Christian communities how to lift up those in need, no matter the kind of need, and how those lifted up can encourage others. When not teaching or writing, Nancy restores antique quilts, crafts projects for her grandchildren, and leads a Bible study. Distinguished Toastmaster. 

Nancy is available for online events.

Restoring the Shattered: Illustrating Christ's Love Through the Church in One Accord

Written in an easy-to-understand, conversational style, Restoring the Shattered is an account of Nancy E. Head’s journey through single-motherhood and poverty. The permanent divide between her and her husband led to a shattering of their family as the children settled into separate camps. The story begins when Nancy and her children have little to eat. Through a miraculous intervention, God provides—and leads them along their way. Other interventions and more guidance came from people of different denominations, illustrating Christ’s love through the larger Church. When...
