Cindy and her husband, Steve, have been married more than 35 years and have two grown children, Brittany (married to John) and Brandon (married to Lauren), and two granddaughters, Brynn Elizabeth and Jordynn Rae.
For many years Cindy's business career was Human Resources Management, but she has also been very active in women's ministries for nearly 25 years. From her home, Cindy now works in ministry to women full-time. She has published her first book, "God Can Walk on His Eyeballs: The 10 Most Amazing Things He Taught Me," and Cindy’s second book "The Big 3: Lies That Terrify Women" is coming soon.
Cindy is a frequent speaker and Bible teacher for various women's groups, retreats, conferences, seminars and banquets. She allows God to use her as a messenger of His truth, gleaned from her time spent in prayer and study of His Holy Word. Although her teaching style includes lots of humor, that humor does not overshadow the depth of Cindy's passion to be a faithful steward of God's gifts to her. She is a generous and compassionate teacher with an ability to discern a group's or an individual's needs, and she guides them to God's Word for the application of His truths to their lives. She displays a holy boldness in her pursuit to inspire people to live their lives fully in Christ and the freedom He died to provide.
Cindy is certified as a Biblical counselor and is a licensed minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. She has served on executive committees for Christian Business and Professional Women and After 5 clubs through Stonecroft Ministries. She is also a Zenger/Miller certified training instructor.
Girlfriend Getaway exists to provide an opportunity for women of all ages and denominations to retreat with friends and fellow believers to be fed the living Word of God through praise and worship, biblical teaching, and other creative venues. Ultimately, all aspects of the ministry are to encourage each woman to pursue and to grow her relationship with Jesus Christ to higher levels of personal satisfaction and restoration in Him.
