About Lorinda Cantoya



Wife to an Excellent Man.
Mom of two diamonds-in-the-rough.
Assistant to two Shepherds.
Sharer of hope, ideas, camaraderie.

I was born and raised in Reno, Nevada. I moved around quite a bit, but landed in Omaha, Nebraska.  Yes, I had to look that up on the map too.  For a year now, I’ve been sharing my stories with an audience of readers who want to find hope when life can be a little rough. I’m sharing stories of endurance through a tough 20 year marriage, raising kids alone and then walking them through the suicide death of their father just a few years later. I’ll share stories of the hard work it takes to live a healthy single life and navigate through dating the second time around.

I’m so passionate about helping people experience paradigm shifts in their thinking about God’s hand in the midst of this broken world. I desperately want people to see Him through parenting, divorce, rough chapters, being single and dating again. Although I’d love to tell you that I prayed real hard and things worked out the way I wanted them to, that’s not my story, for sure.  My stories might be a bit raw. But they are real.  I hope to offer a bond through suffering, a few ideas and a spotlight into God’s hand of hope.
