Beth and her husband, Todd, live with their family in Cincinnati, Ohio, where they serve as co-executive directors of Back2Back Ministries, a holistic orphan care ministry. After graduating from Indiana University, where they were involved with Cru as students, the Guckenbergers lived and worked in Monterrey, Mexico, for 15 years. Between biological, foster and adopted, they have raised a total of ten children.
Beth is the author of nine books, including both adult and children’s titles. She travels and speaks regularly at conferences, youth gatherings and church services. Her style is based in story-telling, and for her illustrations of biblical concepts, she draws from her vast field experience as a missionary, Bible teacher and parent.
