Cynthia was raised in a pastor’s home, yet she managed to avoid being the stereotypical P.K. rebel. Her parents’ love for the Lord and faith in God made a huge impact. Then, as if being raised in the church wasn’t immersion enough she married a pastor’s son. It would seem that ministry is in her blood. She and Brad have three children, an adult son and daughter and one son in middle school. They have been married 27 years and live in Littleton. They love their annual family tent camping trips where Cynthia thrives on tackling the challenge of cooking full-on meals in the great outdoors. Being part of the Restoring the Soul team is a natural expression of her background in ministry and the love for others that God has given her.
Diane has been a professional bookkeeper and administrative assistant the last 30 years for corporate businesses and most recently non-profits, including Restoring the Soul. Her joy is using her gifts of serving and administration in ministry. Despite her conservative Christian upbringing, in her 40s she discovered freedom from legalism and got a tattoo and nose piercing. Her husband now calls her a rebel.
