messmerized PODCAST

Hi, I’m Cynthia! I am a wife, mom of 3, blogger and host of the MESSmerized podcast. I love Jesus, my family, foster care, and having lots of people around me as often as possible.

I believe God is found in the real life, everyday moments of parenting, marriage, friendships, and everywhere in between. Let’s look for him together.

Behind the Mess with Darin Kinder: Living Courageously

Yesterday was an incredible day and I’m so grateful for your support of Life is Messy God is Good. As we continue the push towards getting this word out, I would be so grateful if you would leave a review on Amazon (or wherever you purchased the book) as well as continue sharing on social media and recommending it to friends. Please accept my deepest and heartfelt THANK YOU!


Today’s show is a continuation of our discussions with friends and family  who made a cameo in my book. Darin Kinder is not only in the book, but his story of surviving the 9/11 attacks as a Secret Service Agent has impacted my life in the messiest and best of ways. 


Darin is with us today to talk about living courageously and raising kids willing and able to do the hard things. And let me assure you, Darin’s words are powerful and unforgettable. In fact, I’m not sure a story outside the Bible has impacted me more than Darin’s account of 9/11 and seeing God show up in the messiest and most tragic of situations. 


Take a listen today and even share with a friend! So grateful for you.
