About Cindi McMenamin
I had the privilege of releasing a book that my daughter, Dana, helped me write: "When a Mom Inspires Her Daughter." Many people ask how I got started writing and publishing. I would have to say my books are the result of more than 25 years of ministering to women, writing and teaching Bible studies to women, and recording the insights God has taught me through lessons in my own life. I can also help you get started with your book if God has placed a book on your heart but you don't know where to start. Beginning June 1, 2018 I will be taking clients who want a writing and/or speaking coach to help them get to the next level.
Women's groups across the country have enjoyed studying through my books, so I always include questions for thought, reflection, and application at the end of each chapter. I also have free downloadable small group facilitators' guides available on my website for study through some of my titles.
You can find my writings on Crosswalk.com, LaundryMoms.com. PastorResources.com and other sites, as well as on my blog at www.StrengthForTheSoul.com. I am also a part of the Bible Gateway blogger grid. I live in the San Diego area of Southern California with my husband of 30 years. My daughter, now an adult, lives nearby and works for the Walt Disney Company. I enjoy reading, traveling, taking Disney vacations with my family (perks of my daughter's job!) and staying active.
Stop by my website and say "hello." I try my best to personally respond to everyone I hear from. : )

More and more women are finding themselves alone in their Christian walk because of life's circumstances—a lack of support from people in her home, work, or church; being left out of the things she used to be included in; being misunderstood and unable to explain. Cindi McMenamin, author of Drama Free, offers personal encouragement and practical, biblical steps for gaining strength in times of isolation and becoming resilient to, not resentful toward, loneliness.
Cindi's audience for Women Who Walk Alone is a broad one—single women, women parenting alone, women alone as the spiritual head of their household, women facing challenging life situations, women without close friendships. And her message is timely—every woman feels alone at some point in her life, yet every woman needs someone to grow alongside her and to encourage her in her walk with the Lord.
When Women Walk Alone encourages readers to see alone times as unique opportunities for personal and spiritual growth. Women will discover practical ways to...
- find support from other women who feel alone in their lives
- celebrate their own uniqueness and grow through the lonely times
- gain strength for the challenges of parenting alone
- funnel "loneliness in prayer" into "a new power in prayer alone with God"
- rely on the Lord and others to overcome personal trials
Using examples of biblical and contemporary women who emerged from a time of loneliness stronger and more complete, Cindi also looks at the example of Jesus and the many times He was alone or sought out some "alone time" to draw strength from His Father.
Women long to be loved, to be known, to be understood. But who can meet those needs at their deepest level? Only the One who created women--who knows them by name and who designed them--can bring fulfillment that truly satisfies.
Letting God Meet Your Emotional Needs shows how God desires to help every woman:
- I need acceptance... God loves, forgives, and accepts
- I need security... God promises He will never leave
- I need to feel pretty... Christ sees me as new, spotless
- I need a companion... He is the perfect friend
- I need communication... He talks to me intimately through His Word
Formerly Heart Hunger.
The demands of everyday life almost always pull husbands and wives in different directions. And even when they are together, there’s very little opportunity to just be a couple. Work, children, and other commitments make it a constant challenge to find quality time alone.
Hugh and Cindi McMenamin have put together an innovative devotional about meaningful ways that husbands and wives can draw closer together. Each reading in this 31-day book offers simple, helpful (and fun!) steps a husband and wife can take to nourish closeness and intimacy. Among the topics are
the power of a note making a memory
extending grace splurging on love
finding a getaway lighten the load
flirting again sharing your heart
Key thoughts from Scripture are interwoven into each devotion, and each ends with “Points to Ponder Together” as well as a couple’s prayer. Especially helpful are the frequent anecdotal tips from a woman’s perspective (Cindi) and a man’s (Hugh).
This book is about how a woman can be the encourager, motivator, inspiration, and admiration behind her man becoming all God designed him to be.
When a Woman Inspires Her Husband looks at how a woman can celebrate and encourage her husband's uniqueness. Cindi shares how a wife can embrace the man in her life by...
- understanding his world
- easing his burdens
- appreciating his differences
- admiring him for who he is
- encouraging him to dream
