Get to Know Cynthia:

Sitting across a table engaged in meaningful conversation with a cup of tea and helping others flourish is Cynthia’s joy. Her story of brokenness has propelled her to write, speak, and give voice to help others redeem their pain and heal through the pages of God’s Word.  Cynthia is the author of multiple books and the award-winning author of Anchored: Leading Through the Storms by New Hope Publishers which focuses on leading with godly integrity amid adversity and Live Bold: A Devotional Journal to Strengthen Your Soul with Redemption Press.

When she is not writing or speaking, you can find her playing games with her grandkids or watching a true-to-life movie with her hubby at home in the far corner of the Pacific Northwest. A little tea and chocolate make her smile. You can follow Cynthia on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. For info on her upcoming courses and her newly released podcast, Soul Anchor, visit
