About the Instructors
Meggie Lee Calvin (Meg) is a wife, mom, speaker, podcaster, best-selling author, and coach who helps her fellow “spiritually-attuned go-getters” find confidence and certainty in who they were meant to be.
After serving as a Minister to Children and Families at a mainline protestant church for over a decade, she now serves as Director of Engagement for the Institute for Discipleship. Her days include recruiting participants and instructors for BeADisciple.com, producing and co-hosting the Listening Chair Podcast, and writing and speaking over grit and grace to her fellow spiritually-attuned go-getters.
The Bluebonnet Child: Finding Grace in Poor Soil (Wipf & Stock), is her first book. It seeks to equip others to offer hope to kids whose homes seem hopeless. Her second book, I Am My Own Sanctuary (Quoir Publishing), is a satirical yet holy tale written for other “recovering holy-rollers” and seeks to disrupt any thought patterns around ambition or self-love being the opposite of godly and good.
Meg has a BA in Religion and Philosophy from Southwestern College of Kansas and an MA in Children’s and Family Ministry from Bethel Seminary of Minnesota. Meg earned her Certification in Mindfulness at Wichita State University. She has served as a workshop presenter at both state-wide and national conferences.
Meg is obsessed with Saturday Night Live and loves to hunt for antiques, learn Spanish and line dance. She and her husband spend most of their free-time by the chimenea with some classic rock music, or playing board games with their daughter.
Miranda Priddy serves as the Director of Business Operations for the Institute for Discipleship, and comes from a varied background. From growing up on a farm in Texas, to earning a Bachelor of Arts degree from McMurry University with a major in theatre, to now working toward an MBA, she loves seeing ideas come to life. She co-hosts the Listening Chair podcast as well as provides administrative support to all Institute programming.
When she’s not on the clock, Miranda enjoys playing cribbage with her husband and being a dog-mom to their three dogs.
