Words, art & other alleluias.


Hello! My name is Hillary McFarland and I am a Spirit-filled writer, maker & mentor for holy wild women.

My purpose here (and prayer) is to offer a rich collection of words and art that will honor the Lord and lead you towards a wiser, braver, deeper life. This intention guides everything I offer: my writing, creative programs, workshops and more.

As a mentor, I offer tender, Spirit-filled guidance to women looking for a healing, scriptural approach to living wise and well.

Current projects include a creative program called Making Home and a writing workshop series called Dear Writer. I am also the author of The Secret Life of a Curvy Girl, a faith-based body memoir & compassionate, healing guide written for those who know the intensity and depth of body hatred and body shame. You can make peace with the body you have, and in this book, I show you how.

Learn about my work, writing, and other upcoming events below. And if you resonate with what you see, I have a cozy insider's list here where I send out weeklyish (ok, sometimes monthlyish) emails you’ll actually love.


Can I send you words from the depths?


Making Home

Tending to the sacred space you dwell in

And the sacred space you are.

Coming Later in 2019

Tending to the sacred space you dwell in
And the sacred space you are.

A few sweet messages from folks who have experienced my work...

...I absolutely loved the peacefulness that she created for me, and I felt understood, and loved. After our session Hillary sent me a workbook, and a summary of what we had talked about with some additional prompts, and activities. This helped me to get going and really made a difference. i loved everything about it. Thank you Hillary!

I began my journey with Hillary because I decided to listen to my soul and begin a new business — the biz of my dreams. I felt like I needed a little more guidance, I needed someone to hold up a mirror and show me that I had the magic within to leap. She made me feel at home. Our sessions felt like talking to a best friend. After our very first call, I found confidence and clarity. After our fourth call? I was filling my calendar with clients and manifesting magic. I would not be where I am today without her magic.

I didn’t really doubt you would anyway, but you really crafted something beautiful and holy and sacred with this. Thank you for following the call of your heart.

Hillary, I have taken many online programs, and yours has by far been the most wise, cozy, supported program experience with a TON of content. Thank you.
