About the Author

Carmen Beasley is the author and founder of SIMPLY BIBLE, a series of studies and a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to helping others know and enjoy God directly through the Bible.

Carmen has discovered that most people turn to “experts” to explain God and the Bible. An old Chinese proverb says, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” This proverb embodies Carmen’s mission and the unique benefit of Simply Bible. Carmen believes everyone deserves a simple and effective way to personally know and enjoy God through the Bible. She continues to write, teach, speak and train up leaders to effectively inspire others.

Prior to writing SIMPLY BIBLE, Carmen lived in Shanghai, China, learning Mandarin, sipping tea, and serving among an international community of women. Over her forty years in ministry, Carmen has guided women from North America, Africa, Asia, and Europe in their study of the Bible.

She and her husband have enjoyed boundless adventures together, including raising their four children. She attended graduate school alongside her two eldest children, earning a Master’s degree in Theological Studies from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.

In her day-to-day, Carmen relishes quiet time with Jesus, studying, walking, and (of course) drinking tea. She also enjoys cycling with her hubby and family “staycations” at her home in Ohio.
