About

Erin Strybis headshot square

If there’s one thing to know about me it’s this: I love stories. As a writer and editor, I love to tell them. As a bookworm and culture enthusiast, I love to learn from them. Grounded by God’s grace and living gratefully, I share personal stories here to encourage and inspire you on your journey.

I’m a full-time editor for a national niche magazine, where I write and edit feature stories. I also freelance write and edit for other publications and clients. When I write, I gravitate toward human interest stories and essays or articles that touch on faith, motherhood or well-being.

I’ve been writing and editing professionally for ten years, and it’s been a joy to spend that time helping organizations and individuals tell their powerful stories. Read about my vocational journey here.

When I’m not working, I can often be found chasing my sweet, feisty toddler, snuggling my spoiled pug, devouring novels (and Netflix shows) or practicing yoga. I’m married to a robotics engineer, and we live in Chicago.

I take my coffee with a splash of cream, proofread exclusively with Papermate flair pens and use my planner like a security blanket (because deadlines). I value heart over hustle, showing up, speaking up, authenticity, kindness, gratitude and grace.

I believe everyone hungers to be seen, known and loved. We all have stories to tell. You can find my personal stories on motherhood, marriage, faith and life here, as well as links to my published work.
