Anita Yoder was born at Faith Mission Home, Virginia where her parents served at a residential home for mentally handicapped children.

At age 21, Anita moved to Ireland with her parents and siblings to a church planting mission, where her most of her family now lives. She served there 14 years, working in retail and connecting with locals. In 2010, she moved to Poland and taught ESL for five years. The nineteen years in Europe broadened her horizons and gave her a love for cultures outside of her own.

She attended multiple terms at SMBI and Faith Builders, and spent a sabbatical year studying at Faith Builders. She has written one book, and loves to be creative with words, color, and texture.She cares most about living in wholeness, simplicity, and joy in Jesus, and wants to spend her life enabling others to do the same.
