About the Author
Jane Kise learned about finding her God-given gifts and missions from her family. Growing up, she and her four brothers were encouraged to seek where they could serve best. During her research for LifeKeys, she confirmed what she already God had in mind for her mission.
Currently, Kise is a free-lance writer and management consultant for strategic planning, employer/employee relations and finance. Before publishing LifeKeys, she cowrote a book on personality in the workforce. She holds a bachelor's degree in English and business administration and a master's in finance. In addition to her free-lance work, she is an adjunct professor of English at Bethel College in St. Paul.

The founder and director of training for Church Innovations, he has led dozens of workshops and seminars throughout the United States and has developed masters for small groups that are used by churches from a variety of denominations.
Stark's work with the LifeKeys program comes from a recognition that most people spend their lives in a field or profession that is mismatched with their personal gifts. His desire to help people find their match that will ensure their work will be more meaningful and enduring.
