Through her transparency, humor, and faithful commitment to God’s Word, author and speaker Cynthia Cavanaugh has inspired women across North America. Although Cynthia came to follow Christ as a young teenager and hasn’t looked back, she confesses that she has experienced depression, struggles within ministry, and performance issues. It is from her brokenness that she has a passion to lead others to experience the power of God’s Word so they may live intentionally with freedom and purpose. More than anything, she longs for women to embrace their individual giftedness and believes God is calling His daughters out at this time in history to champion truth, justice, and strength. She is the founder and director of Women Emerge, a ministry whose mission is to help women have a global influence and be equipped to fulfill their God-given purpose. In addition to her ministry, writing, and speaking, Cynthia is a certified life coach with Life Purpose Coaching Centers International®. She combines her life coaching and leadership in her role with NightShift Street Ministries as the leadership development director. Cynthia and her husband, Kevin, have three married sons and three daughters-in-law: Jeremy and Emily, Jordan and Julie, Jason and Brittany. They are entering a joyful new season of being grandparents. Cynthia loves to read, cook gourmet meals for friends, and connect with other women over tea and coffee.
