Cyndy Warnier

Cyndy Warnier

Cyndy Warnier has worn many hats in her life, paramedic, dental hygienist, music/worship leader, author, and National Parks chaplain. Recently retired from Spirit in the Desert Retreat Center, she and her husband Al are now full-time RV’ers and camp hosts, which provides Cyndy opportunities for outdoor ministry. In her spare time, she creates retreats of all kinds, including adult VBS programs and limited hospice chaplaincy. Cyndy loves teaching and reaching people with the love God and love for one another, including all of Creation! Whether through her online devotions, photography nature walks, or in a retreat setting, Cyndy leads lively classes in which you can worship, sing, share experiences with one another, and of course, laugh!

Cyndy is passionate about photography, which she integrates into her ministry. A favorite she shares was from a recent trip to Creede, CO, which led to over 1,000 photos—150 of them had a moose as the subject. “Why so many pics of a moose?” The answer is best given in the words of the great photographer, Ansel Adams, “When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”
