Hi! My name is Katie Moon, and I am a Biblical researcher, writer, and teacher.

After a career as a professional illustrator, I "happened" into seminary (a story in itself!). After a few years of seminary study, God lead me to step aside from traditional Bible education to blaze another learning trail. This new path was spearheaded by the Holy Spirit and built upon the research methods and models introduced to me in seminary, but then adapted and advanced throughout thousands of research hours.

I officially founded my non-profit ministry org, In Black and Light, in January 2017 (though the work began years earlier), where I conduct perpetual behind-the-scenes biblical research, write, speak, build online Bible courses, and am working to reach and equip as many as possible in Biblical literacy and the good news of Jesus the Christ.

I am married to Garrett, a fellow-designer and entrepreneur, and together we live the wild adventure of parenting three growing boys. Our family lives and works from Bismarck, ND.


“Jesus answered, 'Are there not twelve hours in the day? If anyone walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world. But if anyone walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him.'“

John 11:9-10
