Autumn Dawn Galbreath, MD, MBA, is an internal medicine physician in San Antonio, Texas, where she did her medical training. She has been an active member of CMDA since her first year of medical school and has served in leadership roles in the local San Antonio area as well as on the Women Physicians in Christ Commission. Autumn Dawn enjoys mentoring younger physicians, as well as writing and speaking. She and her husband David have three children—two in college and one still at home.

For Philip Yancey, writing is a way to explore faith. He explains: “At times we ask questions like ‘Where is God when it hurts?’ or ‘Does prayer make any difference?’ As a freelance writer, I feel privileged to explore such questions full time.” True to his calling, Yancey wrestles in print with God, with the church and with fellow believers. In the process he has authored two dozen books, including the bestsellers What’s So Amazing About GraceandThe Jesus I Never Knew. Yancey has worked in collaboration with the surgeon and leprosy specialist Dr. Paul Brand, recently publishing the fully revised Fearfully and Wonderfully: The Marvel of Bearing God’s Image. Yancey’s book Soul Survivorincludes profiles of Dr. Paul Brand and 12 others who deeply influenced his faith. In all, his books have sold more than 15 million copies in English and have been translated into some 40 languages worldwide. After surviving a church background of what he now calls “toxic faith,” Yancey ultimately came to know a God of grace and beauty. A memoir titled Where the Light Fell, published in 2021, tells that complete story for the first time. Philip and his wife live in the foothills of Colorado, where they enjoy mountain climbing, skiing, wildlife viewing and many other delights of the Rocky Mountains.
