Here is a quote from Darci's bio. "There is nothing extraordinary or exceptional about me. Like many of us I’m just trying to live my life well, while making a difference in my little corner of this great big world. In doing so I find myself filling many roles including wife, mom, daughter, co- worker, and friend. I treasure each of these callings and pour myself into them wholeheartedly but even more important to me is my desire to bring glory to God through my life…not necessarily in some earth shattering, remarkable way but just in the ordinary, seemingly insignificant opportunities placed before me by my all-loving God who is writing this story for my good and His glory."

Kirsten Panachyda is a writer, speaker, Bible teacher, singer-songwriter, and "retired" homeschooling mom. She lives in Central New York with her husband of 25 years, Dan. They have two college-aged sons, who were homeschooled from birth through high school. They are not a bread-baking, gardening, matching-outfit-wearing kind of homeschool family. They are a roller-coaster-riding, travel-loving, blue-hair-dying kind of family. They love Jesus and each other, but there is still a certain amount of sarcasm and sass.
Kirsten discovered a heart for teens struggling with emotional and mental illness, and most especially for their parents, when her own son's illness introduced her to a new world. She longs to extend compassion and infuse courage into the soul-weary.
Kirsten is available for speaking engagements.

Cindy is available for speaking engagements.
