Kathy Helgemo
Kathy Helgemo is the co-author of the book "Mothering From Scratch". Moms want to get it right. But most moms feel like they are doing something wrong. Fortunately, Kathy & Melinda have discovered how to embrace their personal mothering styles rather than attempt to conform to a “one-size-fits-all” model. Melinda Means and Kathy Helgemo, founders of the popular Mothering From Scratch® blog, believe that every mom has a God-given parenting style that is unique to her personality and that of her children. Their new book shows moms how to identify that style and customize it to fit their family’s needs. With practical tips, biblical truth, and relatable anecdotes, Mothering From Scratch offers grace and wisdom for every mom. According to Kathy & Melinda, there is no one “right way” to parent our children.

Tara McClary Reeves
Tara McClary Reeves co-authored with Amanda Jenkins the new book "The Pirate and the Firefly: A Boy, a Bug and a Lesson in Wisdom". She & Amanda formed a very special friendship in 2007 – the year Tara's six-year-old son, Daniel, was diagnosed with leukemia. Through Daniel’s battle with cancer, Tara started a Caringbridge journal to share his progress and give God glory through her family's season of suffering. Amanda a fellow author and mother, followed Daniel’s page and reached out with words of comfort. Little did they know this would be the start of a great relationship. Inspired by the faith community that cheered Daniel to recovery, the power of prayer and a shared heart for communicating biblical truths to children, the pair created The Nightlight Chronicles, a Scripture-adventure series written to equip parents and children to focus and depend upon the Lord for all things.
