Hi, I’m Cynthia. Apparently I’m known for writing about religion and philosophy and personality types. My hobby is opening cans of worms to look for treasure inside.

My focus here on this blog is to offer insights on epic living. This means seeing each person’s life as a story, and understanding how to interact with other people as characters in your story and the main characters of their own stories. My goal is to comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable by speaking the truth in love.

External links are common throughout my blog, and I encourage you to check these out on new tabs in your web server (you can open a new tab by right-clicking on a link and selecting “open link in new tab”). Sometimes I leave notes on the pictures accompanying my posts, so hold your mouse over the pictures to find explanations and trivia.

I post three days a week. To make sure you don’t miss my newest posts, please subscribe by entering your email address in the field on the right.

A Short Biography

First, you should know that I love Jesus. I’m an author and I love helping people awaken and live their dreams. I want to spread the passion for epic living.

By the time I was seven, I had read difficult versions of the stories of Robin Hood, Joan of Arc, and Helen Keller. When I was eight years old, my family moved away from Minnesota to live in beautiful Monument, CO. I began my own business at the age of 9, selling books on Amazon.com. This business experience helped shape my ideas about capitalism, customer service, and personal responsibility.

Because my older sisters had competed in speech and debate during the 90s, I had difficulty waiting until I was 12 to participate in NCFCA. I have been given national and regional recognition in Apologetics, LD, Policy, Interpretive speeches, and Impromptu speaking.

When I was 14, my family was featured on the Learning Channel show “Kids by the Dozen”, and my 17th birthday was also filmed for television, on the show The Secret Lives of Women. My family’s third television appearance took place on a Fox21 (local) broadcast in early 2012.

My first book, Love in the Kitchen, was published when I was 15. I was a journalist and editor for the UCCS paper, The Scribe, during 2012 and 2013. My articles in the Scribe can be found here. In 2013, I was invited to blog for the Huffington Post. You can find my HP author page here.

I have collected over 300 pages of quotations from the books I’ve read. A selection of these quotations can be found in my free E-Book, Scars, available to everyone who leaves a comment on my blog. I’m studying Theatre (switched my major from Communication) at UCCS if you want to try and stalk me there.
