Kristin Armstrong

Journalist & Runner Inspiring Women to Take Faith-Based Journeys of Self-Discovery

Kristin Armstrong is a writer, runner, and divorced mom loving (almost) every minute of it. Following her painful 2003 divorce from world-famous athlete Lance Armstrong, a more resilient, graceful life has since emerged -- one that she cherishes despite the grueling refining process of figuring out the woman God means for her to become.

The common thread between all of her books is an earnest desire to inspire other women to take similar faith-based journeys of self-discovery. Her latest release, Ties That Bind: A 52-Week Devotional for Mothers and Daughters (November, 2013) focuses on the relationship between mothers and daughters. In Armstrong's walk as both a daughter and as a mother, she has come to realize how much her relationship with her own mother has shaped who she is as a woman. After having been in countless Bible studies, taught classes, spoken to women's groups, and run countless miles with her girlfriends, she has come to appreciate how much our relationships with our mothers affects our daily life-and all of our other relationships.

In this mother/daughter devotional, she explores what God has to say about women’s hearts relative to their roles as mothers and daughters and the interaction between the two. From gossip and body image issues to romantic relationships and healthy friendships, no stone is left unturned in Armstrong’s latest candid spiritual journey. This book is intended to serve as a guide for mothers and daughters to utilize together once a week to encourage not only spiritual growth, but also relational growth together.

Armstrong is passionate about her Christian faith, her family, her friends, and her career. It is this passion that fueled her to write her other books which include Lance Armstrong: The Race of His Life; Heart of My Heart: 365 Reflections on the Magnitude and Meaning of Motherhood; Work in Progress: An Unfinished Woman's Guide to Grace and Happily Ever After: Walking with Peace and Courage Through a Year of Divorce.

She is a contributing editor for Runner's World magazine. Her work has also appeared in USA Today, O, The Oprah Magazine, Parent:Wise Austin and Glamour.

An accomplished marathon runner, Armstrong lives in Austin, Texas and Santa Barbara, CA, with her children.
