Cynthia writes stories of hope that glows in the dark, merging her love for storytelling with inextinguishable hope for inexpressible hurts.
Cynthia spends her days diving into words, worship, and wonder and celebrating 40 years of marriage, three grown children, and five outrageously adorable grandchildren. One of her greatest joys is helping other writers grow in their craft. To that end, she served as the assistant director and a faculty member of the Quad Cities Christian Writers Conference, has served as worship and devotions staff for the Write-to-Publish conference, and teaches at other conferences as opportunities arise. She speaks to women’s groups, at mother-daughter banquets, and for women’s refresher days and retreats. It is her delight to serve on her church’s worship team. Rather than “busy,” she likes the term “active.”
For 33 years, Cynthia wrote and produced the radio broadcast The Heartbeat of the Home. The scripted radio drama/devotional broadcast aired on as many as 50 radio stations and two cable/digital television stations over the years. Cynthia was the editor of the ministry’s Backyard Friends magazine, a twenty-page, twice annual publication that reached 5,000 homes, churches, and parachurch outreaches.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Becky rocks a baby that rocked her world. Sixty years earlier, with her fiancé Drew in the middle of the Korean Conflict, Ivy throws herself into her work at a nursing home to keep her sanity and provide for the child Drew doesn't know is coming. Ivy cares for Anna, an elderly patient who taxes Ivy's listening ear until the day she suspects Anna's tall tales are not the ramblings of dementia. They're fragments of Anna's disjointed memories of a remarkable life. Finding a faint thread of hope she can't resist tugging, Ivy records Anna's memoir, scribbling furiously after hours to keep up with the woman's emotion-packed, grace-hemmed stories. Is Ivy's answer buried in Anna's past? Becky, Ivy, Anna--three women fight a tangled vine of deception in search of the blossoming simplicity of truth.
Today is my day for posting. I want to thank Madame Samm @ Sew we quilt for putting this together and our wonderful cheerleader Thearica @ Pigtales and Quilts who cheered us on and made sure we were on task.
Oh the Things that you can do with a pompom or two...Or three....Or four. No Dr. Seuss didn't say that but he probably would have if he had a chance to be in the Shake your Pom Poms blog hop. Today I'm delighted to be included in this blog hop. We have a reason or two or three or four....to shake our PomPoms these days in our household.
This week we are shaking our pom poms because our baby graduates...boo hoo.
Things as we know them will be changing greatly. Never thought I'd see this day come so quickly.
But I know that isn't why you are visiting my blog today...you want to see what I made for the blog hop...
Well, I started by pulling out many craft supplies that I had on hand and only bought my pompom makers for this project....Yeah Me!
Not all the supplies I used were posted here and some of the supplies pictured I didn't use because this was a think-up as you go, a be-creative for a change project. I just pulled out things I thought I might use. I had fun. I spent good 3-4 hours just thinking and adding as I went.

ABOUT THE BOOK
In 1882, Sarah Whittier dreams of opening an art studio run by immigrant women. She plans to use the house left to her by family friend Josiah Cady as collateral for her studio. But will all be lost when the inheritance is challenged by an angry man claiming to be Josiah's son and legal heir? Rumor of gold nuggets hidden in the house, place Sarah's life in danger. Her future uncertain and her safety threatened, Sarah has nowhere to turn. That is, unless she can soften a vengeful man's heart-and they both learn that love is finer than any gold.
This movie couldn't come out at a better time...only a month from graduation day for many, college and High School seniors. Though the movie is presented around college graduation I think High School seniors could benefit from the message just the same. I watched the movie with my senior daughter and I'm passing it on to my college daughter who will graduate in 2014. The message is wonderful and inspiring: You are where God wants you at this present time. Graduates need encouragement as they seek to do what they feel God is calling them to do or as they sort out what direction they feel the Lord leading. It's a hard decision and some have an easier time finding their place in life that others as is presented in this movie. Excellent movie highly recommend High Schoolers and college bound students alike to watch the movie. Very family approved, however, younger ones may not be as thrilled with the message as it is geared toward Doing what God calls you to do upon graduation.
About This Is Our Time

interwoven stories of Luke (T.J. Dalrymple) and Alé (Erin Bethea), who
marry right after school and move to India to serve as missionaries for
Embrace A Village, a ministry that cares for those afflicted with
leprosy and their families; aspiring financier Catherine (Kate Cobb),
who joins a prestigious financial institution determined to make an
impact on corporate America; Ryder (Matthew Florida), who lands an
impressive job in social media and can’t wait to use the powerful medium
for a greater good; and Ethan (Shawn-Caulin Young,) seemingly the odd
man out, who struggles to find his God-given-purpose and feels sidelined
