About Me

Beth Fortune

Sharing heart . . . humor . . . hope is how I would describe my ministry. Through speaking and writing, I try to allow the heartbeat of the Father to pour through my words, while adding humor and offering hope. I have a passion for God’s Word and a desire to teach, lead, and encourage others. Over the years, God has blessed me with some wonderful opportunities to share my gifts. I'm an award winning writer and have had articles published in magazines such as Focus on the Family’s Thriving Family magazine, Reach Out Columbia, and Dr. Charles Stanley’s In Touch magazine, devotions published online at Christian Devotions, article in Greenville SC's AT HOME magazine as well as stories published in the “Chicken Soup for the Soul” books and other anthologies. I've also been a contributing devotion writer for www.Inspireafire.com, Christian Devotions.us, and Dr. Charles Stanley's In Touch Ministries website.

I am a CCC (Christian Communicators Conference) graduate and a CLASS (Christian Leaders Authors Speakers Seminar) graduate. I attend my local writer's group Cross 'N Pen and have had years of experience serving in women’s ministries, speaking at events, and teaching Bible Studies.

With a degree in Horticulture from Clemson University, I enjoy landscape designing, gardening, and giving gardening talks to community groups, churches, and schools. Would love for you to visit my page, The Potting Bench where I share ideas and helpful information about gardening. Yes, I love to play in the dirt, however my real passion is sharing God’s Truths and encouraging women. 

I work at The Gospel Hour, Inc. (a radio and publishing ministry), where I'm the office manager and work on the publishing side of the ministry. In the past I have also worked a couple of afternoons a week at a local nursery/garden center where I was one of the designers. So how do I spend my time when I'm not working? I can be found at Greenville Indoor Rowing Studio -- rowing my way towards my 5 Million Meter Mark, writing, gardening, reading, or spending time with my family.

My husband and I are empty-nesters and live in Greenville, SC where he's the co-pastor of a new church. Recently God lead us to sell our old church building and merge with another church and we are very excited about the wonderful things God is doing in our midst.
