Topic of Preference:
My passion is to encourage women to joyfully serve their family by being the best wife, mother, and woman that God has created her to be. My message is one of grace as I share my testimony of infidelity and redemption through Jesus Christ. My life is a testimony that reminds us all how God can and does use the broken and tarnished people we are to further His kingdom.

Although my audience is primarily married women, my message of being a servant can and should be gleaned by those married and single alike.

I am a frequent keynote speaker at women's events, and have done several interviews via radio and newspaper media.

Darlene Schacht is an ordinary mom, living an extraordinary life, because of who she is through Jesus Christ. As help-meet to her husband Michael, she guides and nurtures their four children, leading them toward a deeper walk of faith.

Her work has been published in anthologies by Thomas Nelson, Tyndale Publishing and Adams Media.

As co-author to actress Candace Cameron Bure, the success of Reshaping it All: Motivation for Physical and Spiritual Fitness, gave her the added title of a New York Times best-selling author.

Putting all this aside, Darlene says that she is nothing without the grace of God.

You can find her blogging at Time-Warp Wife where she empowers wives to joyfully serve.

What They are Saying...
Darlene is a real woman, with a real Heart, and a real Compassionate Love for her God, Husband, and Children. She is a dynamic speaker and writer with real words that touch the heartstrings of her audience. Her humble heart is amazing… wrapped with beauty, wisdom, and lots of sweetness.
~ Lenise Krebs, Pastor's Wife and Women's Ministry Leader at Evangel Chapel

Darlene speaks from the heart. A godly woman, wife and mother--she relates well to the struggles of life that effect us all. Blending scripture and humor, her life story is both honest and refreshing. Darlene is a delight, and I highly recommend her ministry.
~ Jo-Anne Hollander, Pastor Community LIFE Church.
