her heart is gold

i had the privilege of knowing Cynthia not only as an author but as a woman. She is passionate about history and instilling Christian values into our children. Her podcast allows listeners to do exactly what the title implies- get to the heart of the things that after to her listener, and she addresses them with grace and class.
