Name: Cynthia Griner

Where did you grow up: Charlotte, NC

Town you live in now: West Palm Beach, FL

Why you love living there: We are across the bridge to the Island, and members of Royal Poinciana Chapel. The tropical climates, swaying palm trees, and Intracoastal Waterway are all very therapeutic.

Tell me about your kids: 

Andrew 24 is an American Airlines Flight Attendant

Taylor 23 is a Jr. Interior Designer Rogers Design Group

Grayson 18 is an Intern at CMI and an aspiring Robotics Engineer Major

Coles-Albert 12 rising 7th grader at NPBC in the vocal program

Hope 35 months is our 3 year hopeful IVFMD miracle baby girl

Favorite things to do with the family locally: Various programs at The Royal Poinciana Plaza, walks on the intracoastal waterway or beach, playing at George Petty park and picnics at the beach.

Best family restaurant: Testas until they closed….Bricktops Palm Beach

Ideal family vacation spot and why: Staycation at Marriot Singer Island. The kids love the water slide….the restaurant has a great view/menu, and you can walk down the steps to the beach!

What’s your ‘day job’? SAHM

What is something that makes your life easier/better/more fun? My faith, budget wise activities for my children….oh, and wine with chocolate!

How do you balance your ‘day job’ and motherhood? God – Through him All things are possible Luke 1:36 and Joe, the God loving husband he gave me.

Who inspires you and why? My 97 year old grandmother. She gracefully said goodbye to her husband. Their retirement years were not as expected, because my grandfather was a victim of Alzheimer’s.

What do you do for self care? I read devotionals…..yoga, paint classes, and spa treatments.

What did you wish you knew but no one told you about being a parent? Toddlers and Teenagers are similar they are emotional….irrational and think they know everything!

Anything else you want to share? Our daughter Hope is the inspiration of Hope Fund for IVF, a nonprofit to raise awareness and funds to help assist another couple with a DREAM of having a baby. www.ludlowbas.com/hopefundforivf
