Patti and Mark Armstrong

Mark and Patti Armstrong live in North Dakota and are the parents of ten children including two adopted AIDS orphans from Kenya.

Patti has been writing for over 30 years. She has a bachelor’s degree in social work and master’s in public administration. Before staying home full-time to raise her children, she worked in both those fields.

Writing began as a hobby between diapers and naps. She has published hundreds of newspaper, magazine, and website articles and authored 9 books: Catholic Truths for Our Children (Scepter Publishers), a guide to help parents pass on their faith; co-authored the best-selling “Amazing Grace” book series, (Ascension Press) and Stories for the Homeschool Heart, and wrote the children’s book Dear God I Don’t Get It!

Patti has been a guest on EWTN Television's "Live" program with Father Mitch Pacwa and Doug Keck's "Bookmark" program, Catholic TV’s, “This is the Day,” and Catholic radio programs around the country.
