A Northern-Virginia native, Cynthia (Makarczyk) Thomas joined the Army as a photojournalist in 1985 to see the world. Hearing the gospel message in bootcamp, she gave her life to Christ, got married and soon found herself traipsing after her husband and two kids. Thank God for good solid Bible teaching through the military’s Protestant Women of the Chapel and the bonds of friendship that have stood the test of time and moves.
Stan and Cynthia wound up just miles from her girlhood home where they planted their first garden. They have grown, pruned, split, rescued and shared more plants than anyone can keep track of. Gardening has become a full-time endeavor in retirement.
Cynthia still attends her local PWOC, disciples younger believers and teaches Bible study at her local church.
Stan and Cynthia now split their time between VA and NY. They have two children; Stanley, age 29 attending dental school in Philadelphia and Kaye, age 26 serving in ACE American Conservation Experience, Santa Cruz.
Cynthia has a BA in public relations and has worked in marketing for Regent University | Alexandria campus; with Ideal Innovations, Inc.; and most recently as the Director of Outreach for Assist Pregnancy Center. She is currently spending more time at her first love: writing.
