Naomi Reed is a gifted communicator who loves to use honest, everyday stories to remind us that even in the hardest moments, God has not forgotten us.
It’s Autumn in the Blue Mountains, and that’s a glorious thing. Right now, some of the leaves in our garden are turning golden and floating past my window. They’re beautiful. And soon they will land on soggy ground, join the soccer balls and assorted remains of dog’s bones, and then slowly decay and enrich the earth… which will remind me, once again, that there’s a time for everything and a season for every activity under heaven!
At our house, soccer has begun again, the slow cooker is humming away, and my 6-month Sabbatical from public speaking events is over. It was lovely to spend time at home with Darren and the boys… and now I feel refreshed and ready to go again! I really enjoyed being with the women at the Western Regional Dinner in Sydney last week and then I spent the weekend speaking at the CWCI convention in Adelaide, which was also a privilege… and humbling to meet people who had travelled 2,970kms to be there.

Naomi is the author of six books and one audio book. She began writing in Nepal in 2005, while she and her husband and three sons were living through their seventh monsoon. It began as a means of survival and soon became a love of storytelling. Naomi kept writing even after the rain stopped, firstly the sequel to ‘My Seventh Monsoon’ and then four other books.
Radio - Everyday Stories
Naomi has recorded 140 radio segments and they are available on this site as well as on Media Point for use by radio broadcasters around Australia.
In 2008, Naomi was studying Old Testament at SMBC and decided to write her way through the Bible using the voices of women. A year later, ‘The Promise’ was released and its audio version followed as a 7 CD set. Naomi now regularly performs these monologues in churches and larger conventions, particularly loving the opportunity to present the gospel message in a fresh and tangible way.
In 2013 Naomi wrote The Zookeeper script and together with Bruce Wheatley’s lyrics and music it grew into The Zookeeper Show. The story is an interactive presentation of the whole gospel through drama, music and puppets. With fellow actors Melanie Grouse and Sam Wallace, Naomi and Bruce are available to perform this at family church services, kids clubs and schools.
Bible Thematic Talks
Naomi also speaks regularly at churches and large conventions, giving down-to-earth Biblical messages on the themes of seasons, God’s enabling, the body of Christ, comparison, our true home and the heart of mission.
Naomi is currently working on a Television series to be filmed in Australia, Nepal and possibly two other countries. It seeks to capture the heart of our human longings and the answers and hope that we find in Jesus.
