Nancy Sylvester, grew up on the mission field in Mexico. Her parents traveled like gypsies from village to village sharing Jesus love among the poorest of the poor. As a young adult, she graduated from Calvary Chapel Bible College and Horizon School of Evangelism, where she met her husband. They both went on to serve at Calvary Chapel Prescott until the Lord called them to plant a church in York England and establish Calvary Chapel Bible College York.

For the past 25 years, she has served as Pastor’s wife, counselor, Women’s Ministry leader, Dean of Women, and Bible College teacher. She has spoken at retreats and conferences for women across America as well as internationally throughout Europe. Closest to her heart, she has raised and home-schooled her four children who are now serving the Lord in various areas. She is an active grandmother to her many beautiful grandchildren and loves every minute of it. Best of all, she is a devoted wife of almost 40 years, co-labouring beside her husband and best friend Dave, to bring Jesus' love to this generation.

What People Are Saying

I absolutely love this Journal! It has allowed me to pause, reflect, and record all the treasures found in You’re More Than Dirt. It has helped deepen my understanding, and the additional scripture passages give me even more promises to find! It is the perfect book for individual or group study!

This Journal enabled me to stop and take time to think about the life lessons the Gardener taught Birdy in the garden. Journaling these truths drew me much closer to the Gardener of my soul, and showed me how to love others the way He loves me.” North Carolina, USA “You’re More Than Dirt is a beautifully written book that has encouraged my walk with the Lord. I look forward to the Journal!
California, USA

Journaling has helped me to really take the time to think about what the Lord is telling me and how He is shaping me during this season of my life. The book is amazing by itself but having the Journal has allowed me to dig deeper and find the biblical references in which the book is based.
Costa Rica

This Journal is a beautiful keepsake for this season of my life with the Lord. Journaling my thoughts and looking up the scriptures that frame each chapter has helped me to remember these promises when I doubt my faith. My prayer is that this Journal becomes a keepsake for others.
Pennsylvania, USA

One of my favorite quotes from this book is, ‘Live from the truth of who I AM and what I’ve created you and your garden to be.’ As you read the book you will imagine your own garden. And if you allow, Jesus will come in and start to transform your life. I’m looking forward to using this Journal that accompanies the wonderful allegory of our relationship with ‘Love’ Himself.
