Hi, I'm Anna.

I'm an inspirational writer, speaker and humorist.

I hope to be a little light, a nugget of hope, in a world filled desperate duck lip selfies (see my Instagram), easy offenses (see Facebook comment sections) and a buttload of drama mamas (see my toddlers).

Life's just not that serious.

Of course, bad, horrible things happen in this life - no one escapes it. But most of the time? They don’t. Sweating the big stuff AND the small stuff is a life full of sweating, which is a real problem since deodorant apparently gives us breast cancer.

And if that doesn't help, think of that one time I was at a professional conference and my maxi pad with wings fell out of my pant leg. See? I survived. You will too.


No one said being inspired had to be so serious.

Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to speak at various conferences, universities, churches and classrooms on various issues relating to women, relationships and self-esteem. If the audience isn’t inspired while also laughing until they pee a little, WHAT DO YOU PEOPLE WANT FROM ME?



I write. Therefore, I complain a lot.

I write. I write books. I write blogs. I write columns and I write on bathroom walls, but only if other people have first and the walls are already ruined. I used to write daily for my old, yet oh so hilarious website, HaHas for HooHas. I also write for Disney’s Babble and have a column at the Omaha World Herald.



The Anna & Susannah Show.

The Anna and Susannah Show is a hilarious, Christian podcast with hosts Anna Lind Thomas and hysterical Internet personality Susannah Lewis. It’s basically a bible study that goes way off the rails. Until it crashes and burns. And then we edit out the bad parts. We also run an amazing bible study club called The Word Up Club. Wanna join?

My Most Popular Work

These posts have gone viral, some of them tens of millions of views. I know, I was just as shocked as you'll be, trust me.

The Fart that (Almost) Altered My Destiny

Viewed tens of millions of times, performed by countless performers (who won awards!) and made at least one person laugh so hard they blacked out (no, seriously), this very true, very real story about farting on my date is the fart that keeps on giving. Ok, now I’m worried I hyped it up too much.


Life’s Too Short for Crappy Friends

One of Babble’s most popular posts of all time, “Life’s Too Short For Crappy Friends” is an open letter to young women feeling lonely in a online world and clues them into a little secret: a season of loneliness could be the best thing to ever happen to you – only if you don’t let it go to waste.


Dear Idiots Who Don’t Notice My Baby

“I realized there are two kinds of people in this world. People who love babies and people who don’t. You must obviously be in the latter camp because when I walked by you with the cutest baby who has ever lived, you didn’t even notice. I’m pretty sure Marilyn Manson doesn’t like babies, so let that sink in for a second.”


10 Things Women Do Alone (away from men and children)

There’s a period in time where this actually got more views than the fart story. I guess the only thing more relatable than public humiliation is the sweet sweet freedom of getting away from your family at any cost. Unsurprisingly “not being touched or smothered” and is definitely on this list.
