Mark Littleton is a graduate of Colgate University (B.A., 1972) and Dallas Theological Seminary (Th.M., 1977), and is a former youth pastor and pastor. He speaks at both Christian and secular events and is available for speaking anywhere in the U.S., depending on the need and context.
He is happily married to Jeanette Gardner and has four children: Nicole, Alisha, Gardner and Elizabeth. They all think Mark is the greatest father ever, though their opinions change depending on whether he has given them what they wanted for that day. The family have a dog named Zoe who is stupider than mud, a backup dog named Aussie, who’s quite smart but not smart enough to escape and find another family who will feed him better. They also have a cat named Frodo who hates Zoe and Aussie but loves everyone else. They used to have a hamster, too, but … well, you know what happens to hamsters
He has written for numerous publications including Reader's Digest, The Chicago Tribune, The Baltimore Evening Sun, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Moody Monthly, Today's Christian Woman, Discipleship Journal, Leadership, Sunday Digest, Power for Living, Zelos, as well as many others.
