Meet the
Wholehearted Team

Wholehearted Founder

Naomi Vacaro

Naomi has always been passionate about regular Bible reading and prayer, from her time as a missionary kid in Mongolia to her college days studying graphic design in Central Florida.

In 2018, Naomi took her passion for daily devotions and created a journal called the Quiet Time Companion along with a ministry called Wholehearted for the purpose of encouraging other believers in their daily walk with Jesus. In 2021, Naomi released a book with Tyndale House Publishing, entitled "Quiet: Creating Grace-Based Rhythms for Spending Time with Jesus," where she discusses the emotional seasons of spiritual discipline, quiet time ruts and how to get out of them, the practicals of prayer, and more.

Naomi fills her days with mothering, homemaking, writing, and leading the Wholehearted community. She and her husband Matt live in Florida with their son, Cove, and daughter, Haven.
