Author, Ghostwriter, and Speaker
The Latest from Darla's Desk...
The seasons, they are a changing, and I am excited to say that I am also making changes in my writing ministry. While I will continue to ghostwrite and help you create *YOUR OWN FAMILY STORY BOOKS, I am going to reduce the number of clients I take on because I strongly feel God calling me to make more of my words my own.
More and more I hear him saying, "Let your light shine before men that they may see your good works, aka read your words, so that I can be seen through you." What all this means is that I am going to be focusing more on the books I have already written--books that reveal the character of God in our lives, the lessons he wants to teach us, the way he desires us to parent our children, and the ways in which we can treasure and one of God's greatest blessings to us--the blessing of family. Each of these books is pictured at the top of the page, plus you will find links to all of them when you visit 'Books by Darla' on this website.
I also want to let you know I am currently working on a devotional book, "Salty Grace"--a collection of my favorite Bible verses and the messages and lessons they have spoken to me over the years. I hope to have "Salty Grace" ready for publication by the spring of 2021.
Last but definitely not least, I am currently finishing up a four-part series of podcasts with Andy Asher on Bloomerboomer.com Bloomerboomer.com is a website dedicated to people over 50 that focuses on anything and everything we want and need to know in order to make this season of life as enjoyable, meaningful, and healthy as possible. The series, which is called "Phenomenal Grandparenting" can be seen here: and
*YOUR family's story book is a book by you and me, about you and your family. Working together we will Preserve and share your family history with current and future generations. Why? Because knowing who we are and who we came from generates a stronger sense of self-worth and confidence. It is like putting the final piece in a jigsaw puzzle. Your family book will include your family tree, interesting information about your ancestors' countries of origin, cultural and ethnic customs, recipes, and historical events, as well as family lore, military history, favorite recipes, and the unique facts that make your family special will all be included. Oh, and pictures...what's a book without the universal language of a few photographs!? So, stay tuned for more information coming soon.
While I know things are different now in regards to gathering for special events, I want to let you know that I am still available for speaking to your ministry group, book club, students, civic group, or club. The programs I currently offer include (but is not limited to):
*All my love, George...Letters from a WWII hero" -a presentation and display of WWII memorabilia and a look inside the life of a MO WWII hero.
*Please Pass the Memories-Grandparents and parents thoroughly enjoy spending a little time delving into the whys and how's of connecting the generations of our family together in fun and unusual ways.
*"Salty Grace"-Together we will discover why now is as good a time as any to speak God's truth boldly, unashamedly, and with grace and humility.
*Love, Momma D--Moms, grandmas, aunts, teachers...anyone who loves a child will enjoy letting things like cookie dough, pet salamanders, a demolition derby, and even sibling rivalry remind them that what matters most is loving our children just because they're ours.
*Deuteronomy 6 Parenting-This program is for parents, grandparents, youth leaders, and anyone else with the desire to raise children God's way .
*Through the Eyes of a Shepherd--Having been an actual shepherd for many years, I can honestly say I learned a good number of valuable life-lessons from these gentle, humble, trusting animals, NOT-dumb animals. That's right! When God calls us his sheep, he's not insulting us. He is giving us something to aspire to.
*Because I am committed to giving back, 20% of all book sales is donated to a ministry or charitable organization. If you would like to host an event to raise money for your ministry or organization , email me for details.
So who is Darla Noble?
I've had a passion for writing since I met up-and-coming author, Judy Blume, when I was in the sixth grade. Over the years my life has given me more ammunition for storytelling than you can imagine. But I'm not the kind of writer who just tells a story. I want people to learn something from it. Even if the take-away is how not to change the water in the fish bowl, why it's not child abuse to make your kids pick up walnuts, or something much deeper--like what it means to live without an older brother who died in the service of our country, or why a relationship with God should be your number-one priority, I want my stories...my words to encourage, inform, and inspire.
My work in the Christian/inspirational nonfiction and historical nonfiction markets includes: memoirs, parenting/family resources, Bible studies, devotionals, curriculum covering a variety of subjects, and agricultural and gardening how-to.
When I'm not writing, you will find me hanging out with my husband, playing with my grandchildren, loving on my doxie, gardening, or spending time with a special group of people I call my kids.
