Hi! I’m Kate Motaung.


Welcome to Heading Home, a place where I share articles and posts about eternity, grief, home, diversity, books, and more as we journey together toward our heavenly home.

I’m an author, editor at Refine Services, and host of the Five Minute Friday writing community.

Click here to learn more about my books, including Letters to Grief, 101 Prayers for Comfort, and A Place to Land: A Story of Longing and Belonging.

I grew up on the shores of Lake Michigan before spending ten years living in Cape Town, South Africa. My husband and our three young adult children were all born in South Africa, and now we currently reside in West Michigan.

Feel free to connect with me on Facebook, Instagram, or join my email list to receive the latest articles in your inbox.

I look forward to meeting you!
