Cynthia Mendenhall is a Certified Christian Life Coach, Speaker, and Author of SPUNKIFY YOUR LIFE:  8 Secrets to Living with More Focus, Fascination, and Fun, and the accompanying SPUNKIFY YOUR LIFE Growth Guide. In March of 2019, she released the sequel: Spunkier Yet!: 8 Secrets to Living with More Fullness and Freedom.

Cynthia is passionate about igniting the imaginations, passions, and wild dreams in women by using creative yet practical ways of thinking. Once captive to religion, guilt, and fear, she enjoys teaching others about true freedom. She especially enjoys guiding women as they step into the abundant, rich, full life Jesus wants for us all.

While writing and speaking are her biggest passions, she also designs and hosts spiritual retreats—all-inclusive weekends where women can grow, heal, learn, and laugh together.

She continually finds challenge in being still and allowing God to be God (loosely, Psalm 46:10) and the wrestling out of her wildest, God-given dreams. Future plans include more speaking engagements, more women’s retreats, and the eventual writing of a seashell book, unless God has other plans.

In all she does, both personally and professionally, Cynthia’s biggest assignment and goal is to pour her Spunky Hope into others.

Cynthia still lives simply with her last excursion landing her back home in Ohio. She regularly sneaks away on all sorts of exciting adventures, always taking notes along the way.
