Luma Simms is a wife and mother of five children (3 girls and 2 boys). She is the author of Gospel Amnesia: Forgetting the Goodness of the News. Her educational background includes a B.S. in physics from California State Polytechnic University Pomona, and one and a half years at Chapman University School of Law before leaving to become a stay-at-home-mom. At Chapman Law, Luma was research assistant to Dr. John C. Eastman, the Henry Salvatori Professor of Law & Community Service specializing in Constitutional law, Legal History and First Amendment; Founding Director of the Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence for the Claremont Institute, and Chairman of National Organization for Marriage. Luma spent some time as editor and researcher on the Nexus Law Journal during her 2L year. She also clerked for Superior Court Judge James P. Gray of Orange County, California.
In her writing, Luma explores current theological, political, philosophical, and cultural issues. She encourages women to see that theology is not a set of dry propositions but a rich discourse concerning God. Therefore, Gospel Grace hopes to serve the Christian community by working toward a robust gospel-centered understanding of life, and womanhood in particular, always with the Cross at the fulcrum.
