Angela Thomas Pharr        

Best-Selling Author & Speaker

Angela is a national speaker and the best-selling author of ten books and Bible studies, including Do You Think I’m Beautiful? She is a graduate of The University of North Carolina and Dallas Theological Seminary and has been teaching the Bible for more than twenty-five years, using her unique gifts of entertaining story-telling and faithful biblical instruction. Every year she speaks to thousands of women across the United States and around the world. Angela and her family make their home in North Carolina.

Drawn to spiritual disciplines by her life circumstances, she inspires listeners to live amazing lives through knowing Him intimately. Angela’s testimony includes her personal stories of raising four children without a husband, paycheck or home of her own.

In her debut book Do You Think I’m Beautiful, Angela speaks to women who remain content to watch from the edge of the dance floor, never confident enough to step on it themselves. Angela’s story ministers deeply to “supermoms” and “wallflowers” alike, showing them their God-given beauty and teaching them to not just walk through life, but dance.

After graduating from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Angela began a position as a part-time youth director. Serving her small Methodist church, she discovered her unquenchable passion for teaching God’s Word. She craved ways to learn more about the Bible and to become a better teacher. After finishing her Master’s degree at Dallas Theological Seminary, Angela began leading a ministry to high-school girls. She also married and had four children.

She seemed to be living a dream-life, but Angela admits she was really only pretending, becoming what she calls “a church lady.” Then something happened that she thought never would — her marriage ended in divorce. She calls it a dark time of asking the hard questions of God: “Did He still love her? Could He use her in ministry?” But God knew even before she did that this was not the end Angela’s story — it would just begin a new chapter. “One of the best things I take into my future is my brokenness,” Angela says. “You learn how to love people when you’re broken.”
