Nia (Cox) Stivers is a Nationally Board-Certified high school English teacher at North Sand Mountain School in Higdon, Alabama. She loves teaching creative writing and sharing her own stories with family and friends. After hearing them say, "You should write a book," Nia finally listened, obeyed God's persistent calling, and Wobbly Legs on a Firm Foundation was born.
Nia lives in Bridgeport, Alabama, with her husband (and high school sweetheart) Jason, where they both teach Sunday school at First Baptist Church of Bridgeport. They have two furry children, their mouthy and energetic weenie dogs, Oscar and Penelope. God has also given them a "chosen" son, Bubba, who is a United States Army soldier, and daughter-in-law BJ, who recently gave them a granddaughter Vayda Nicole. Nia also claims hundreds of her students as her spiritual sons and daughters; they are her "babies."
