As builder-developers for thirty two years they have survived personal financial setbacks due to medical crises and recessions. Cynthia is a a Professional Artist, Public Speaker and Author. Darris and Cynthia recently completed a two year, full-time mission, (2006-2008), as Storehouse Managers distributing food and commodoties to the poor and needy. Their responsibilities included teaching Provident Living and Self-reliance to three and four congregations throughout South-Eastern Idaho each Sabbath. Working with families and religious leaders Darris and Cynthia became very much aware of familial and cultural traditions and concepts which held many of these wonderful men and women hostage. Serving this mission Darris and Cynthia came to understand, most people desire to do the right thing in providing for their families, if only they knew what the right thing was.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
Cynthia is currently working on an illustrated book for children and families. Beautiful illustrations will assist parents in strenthening children's understanding of what some believe to be very abstract concepts. Working with primary age children in her church, Cynthia recognizes every child, every individual, can come to know; there is not any damage in our lives, self-inflicted or otherwise, beyond the reach and healing power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ .
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
