The Latest from Darla's Desk...
I love this time of year and the summer heat that will soon follow. I am ready to play in the dirt; planting flowers and vegetables, and am excited to see the asparagus poking up through the soil to let me know it won't be long until we will be enjoying this year's crop for dinner.
I am also ready to partner with you and your business or ministry--ready to work with those of you who understand the value of client aftercare, thank-you gifts, and the need for adding a personal touch to the services they offer. For example, youth ministers and missionaries are encouraging young people to make their relationship with Jesus real and personal by gifting them with copies of "Faith is Like Chocolate". Real estate agents can give clients a copy of "Please Pass the Memories" as a thank you gift that helps them make their new house a home. Funeral homes are gifting families with "Through the Eyes of a Shepherd" as a way to remind them that the comfort and strength that comes from God is theirs now and forever.
If you are interested in partnering with me in this way, let me know and I will be happy to tell you how you can receive deeply discounted copies of the book of your choice.
I am also excited about the possibility of helping your family create your very own ROOTS to BRANCHES family book filled with family history, stories, photos, recipes, trivia, and lots more. These books are a great way to give present and future generations of your family an appreciation and sense of belonging for who they come from. It is a book about you and yours written by you and me. If you would like more information, contact me at
Last but not least, I hope I will once again be able to start speaking to students, women's ministry groups, parent groups/classes, civic groups, and veterans organizations. I miss being able to spend time sharing my stories and spending time with people like you. So, if you are looking for a program and presentation for your group, I would be happy to spend some time with you. *For more information scroll down to the information under the 'Author and Inspirational Speaker' heading.

A word about who I am...
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, educate, 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 dachshund, Charlotte, camping, and walking.
What Readers and Clients are Saying...
I felt like I was hearing George's story from the family sitting across from them at the dinner tables (Marah)
I wish I would have had a book like this when I was raising my kids. I'm glad I can share it with my granddaughters now. (Barbara Jo)
It was an honor and pleasure working with Darla. She helped us tell our family's story so that generations for years and years to come will know they can be proud of the people they come from. (Gina)
Finally I know what to do with all the things I couldn't bear to get rid of. Now we'll enjoy them instead of just dusting them. (Diana)
Darla's right--sheep aren't dumb. They are exactly what God wants us to be. (DL)
Hiring Darla to write for us is the best decision we've made in years. She is a gifted writer, highly professional, and completely dependable. Hire her...you won't be disappointed. (Jonathan)
She had us laughing, crying, nodding like bobble-heads, and recalling memories of things we thought we'd forgotten. We will definitely invite Darla to be the speaker at our events in the future. (Joyce)
I first heard Darla speak over 20 years ago. I remember it like it was yesterday. Any time I can attend a class or session she is speaking at, I do, because I know God will speak through her to tell me just what I need to hear. (Jerrie)
Darla's skills as a ghostwriter has helped me tell my story to others in a way that points them to a life of faith and hope in Jesus. (Eleanor)
In addition to my work as an author, I have 25 years of experience as a ghostwriter and inspirational speaker. My areas of writing expertise include Bible studies, devotionals, memoirs, curriculum (academic and Christian), parenting/family resources, inspirational nonfiction, and home and garden topics.
I am in my element when I am speaking to a group of people. Whether it be a women's ministry event, a parenting/grandparenting seminar, an auditorium full of students, a civic group, or a few people gathered together for a book club meeting, I genuinely love using my gift of telling stories in such a way that they encourage, educate, and inspire people to be a better version of themselves. mI also enjoy listening to those who have listened to me; hearing their stories and learning how others see the world around us.
While I am more than happy to gear my message around your event's theme, I want to let you know I offer the following for 1-2 hour sessions, day-long sessions, or weekend retreats: WWII Memories and Memorabilia, Phenomenal Grandparenting, Momma D Says (parenting), Deuteronomy 6 Parenting, Becoming God's Sheep, Faith is Like Chocolate and other essential life-lessons for children and teens, and Family Forever; preserving and making memories that last forever.
