Oct 11, 2023 | Live It Out, Steady On


Iris Bryant shares learning she was adopted brought her identity into question and for years tempted her to ask, “why am I not enough?”

2 Corinthians 10:12 (NIV)

“We do not dare to classify or compare ourselves with some who commend themselves. When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise.”

Iris Bryant is a writer, speaker, educator, and podcast host. She is a recent widow and mom of two young adults. She is passionate about helping women find purpose on the other side (and sometimes smack dab in the middle) of pain. She has served an online community at irispbryant.com for several years. She is also an adult adoptee and she created The Adoptees in Arms community to help adult adoptees find hope and peace in God’s word.  In addition to these ministries, Iris faithfully serves as a worship leader in her local church. When she is not writing or serving women, she enjoys reading, visiting the beach, and spending quality time with her family and friends.​


She firmly believes in God’s promise found in Romans 8:28, and she desires to help others believe and apply that truth to their lives. She desires to help women maximize each moment and season they encounter and show them God doesn’t waste any of our experiences–whether good or bad.
