Author Teacher Speaker Podcaster


Her Story

Francie Taylor is an author, teacher, speaker, podcaster, and co-founder of Keep the Heart, a teaching ministry for Christian women. As a lover of the Bible, Francie teaches Bible application lessons at women’s conferences and retreats in and out of the country. Many refer to her as a Bible teacher, but Francie refers to herself as a permanent Bible student. Sharing what to do with what we learn is her passion.

Previously from Apple Valley, Minnesota and First Baptist Church of Rosemount, Francie now lives in Pensacola, Florida where she serves at Campus Church on the campus of Pensacola Christian College. Her favorite ministries include serving as a small group Bible study facilitator, and as a rotating teacher in the college Sunday Bible classes. During her first two years in Pensacola, Francie also served as the editor of Joyful Life, a division of Abeka Books. This two-year period was invested in creating a three-part Bible study series, ICU—In Christ Unconditionally. The ICU Bible study series is used by ministries all over the country and beyond.

Francie was introduced to Christ and trusted Him as Savior during a job interview in June of 1977. She has been serving the Lord with her life as a teacher and speaker since 1992. Known for both wit and wisdom, Francie delights her listeners with her transparent observations while encouraging women to apply God’s principles to the issues of life. Since Spanish is Francie’s second language, she also teaches at Spanish women’s conferences in the United States and Mexico.

On September 15, 2017, Francie’s beloved husband and soul mate, Norman H. Taylor went home to be with the Lord five months after being diagnosed with two very aggressive forms of cancer. In the final week of his life, Norman gave Francie many instructions including this: “Don’t stop teaching.” The Taylors have three adult children: Austen (and wife Jessica), Hillary, and Collin. When Francie isn’t writing, recording, or traveling to teach, she loves gardening, shelling at the beach, and finding great coffee to share with her family and friends.

Through the ministry of Keep the Heart, Francie continues to teach and create Bible study materials designed to help believers to “keep their hearts with all diligence,” while also ministering to thousands of listeners around the world through her podcast. The ministry of Keep the Heart also serves those who are seeking God while searching for answers to the “issues of life.” (Proverbs 4:23)

I had a hard time putting Francie Taylor’s book, “Apply” down. Francie shares Gods Word with us in a very practical way that we may apply our hearts to instruction and our ears to to the words of knowledge. I enjoyed the Journal prompts each day, as well as the encouragement to read a Proverb a day. I will share this book with others and plan to use it in my Ladies Sunday School Class.
