About Cynthia L Simmons, author, speaker

Cynthia L. Simmons is the mother of five and retired president of Christian Authors Guild. Imperfect and down to earth, she uses her experience to model God’s grace for all who accept and speaks from the heart of a spiritual mom.

She hosts Heart of the Matter Radio and her podcast releases new episodes every Thursday evening, encouraging women worldwide with God’s timeless wisdom.

Fond of the times past, she writes both historical fiction and nonfiction, while combining history and scripture to ministers to women of all ages. However, she has a special place in her heart for homeschool mothers.

While she loves writing-books, blogs, articles, and notes-Cynthia also enjoys traveling around the nation speaking at homeschool events, bookstores, libraries, and churches. Plus, conducts writing workshops and leads retreats.

Cynthia is a huge fan of tea, sugar, the color purple, orchids, her community of friends, and weekly ballroom dancing with her husband.

“When I stand at the foot of the cross, I keep my balance. I know I’m a sinner, but I remember that I’m loved and forgiven.”
