About John Weirick

John Weirick is a writer on personal growth, relationships, spirituality, travel, and food and drinks. He’s the author of The Variable Life: Finding Clarity and Confidence in a World of Choices (2017), a book of stories about growing through change, conflict, and relationships.

A Midwestern introvert who preferred stability over adventure, he took an uncharacteristic 2,000-mile leap to live in Oregon and then South Carolina, where he learned euphemisms like “that dog don’t hunt” and “bless your heart.” After a long absence and a series of life transitions, he returned to Minnesota and proudly calls Minneapolis home.

John’s writings are featured on HuffPost, Matador Network, RELEVANT Magazine, and dozens of websites with millions of visitors. Join the small but engaged community on his email newsletter. Find his blog and freelance writing/editing services on johnweirick.com. Follow John on social media for daily thoughts, inspiration, and food and drink recommendations:
