"Starting with Amen: Leading Our Families Forward

Without Knowing What's Ahead"



Beth will share an honest and hopeful conversation about the challenges and victories experienced in her family of 11 fostered/adopted/bio children.


Beth and her husband, Todd, live with their family in Cincinnati, Ohio where they serve as Co-Executive Directors of Back2Back Ministries. After graduating from Indiana University, the Guckenbergers moved to Monterrey, Mexico where they lived for 15 years. Between biological, foster, and adopted children, they have raised eleven children.


Beth is the author of fourteen books including adult and children’s titles. She travels and speaks regularly at conferences, youth gatherings and church services about reckless faith. Her style is based in story-telling and she draws from her vast field experience as a missionary, Bible teacher and parent for illustrations of biblical concepts.
