In case you’re wondering just who Hilary Bernstein is, I’d love to share.
I’ve always known I’ve wanted to be a writer, and I’ve spent the past 25 years professionally writing and editing magazines, newspapers, blogs, and books.
In high school, you could find me camped out in the yearbook office as editor-in-chief. But I also graduated, cum laude, with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism at Otterbein University. While I was at Otterbein, I interned at Release Magazine, Towers Magazine, and Worldwide Challenge magazine (at Cru’s world headquarters).
Professionally, I’ve served as staff writer and editorial assistant at Christian Mission magazine, then transitioned to lifestyle editor at The Gazette, a daily newspaper in Medina, Ohio. At The Gazette, my editorial responsibilities included anything related to home, family, food, travel, and entertainment. (Basically, only good news!)
Once my husband and I became parents, I wanted to stay home with our son and daughter. To keep writing, I started a blog – Accidentally Green – in 2011. Here’s my young family when I started blogging:
And here we are in 2016:
Over the past ten years, I’ve written thousands of blog posts, several eBooks, and was the site editor and contributing writer for both The Humbled Homemaker and Keeper of the Home. I began blogging at HilaryBernstein.com in 2015, so I could help Christian women transform their homes into havens.
Along with blogging, I also write devotional books for Barbour Publishing, including: Look Up, You Belong, 200 Nighttime Prayers for Girls, 200 Nighttime Prayers for Teen Girls, and Daily Devotions for Courageous Girls.
