About Noelle

I'm a mom to two adorable (and quite active) boys who married her college sweetheart. I'm also a Presbyterian minister who has served for over ten years. I'm currently the Parish Associate at Central Presbyterian Church in Summit, NJ. My background includes a World Religion degree from Northwestern University and a Master of Divinity degree from Princeton Seminary.

I started blogging four years ago and haven't been able to put down the pen - I mean, leave the keyboard.  In addition to blogging here, my work has appeared on sites like HuffPost Parents, Mamapedia, Crosswalk.com, and DaySpring's (in)courage.me.

I am a member of the TODAY Show Parenting Team, which has allowed me and my children to be on air. I'm also a member of Z Blog Squad through Zondervan Publishing, which enables me to do some great giveaways for Christian children's resources. Don't miss them!

Recently, I started filming a parenting TV series called Chaos to Calm with Noelle Kirchner for HomeTowne TV. In this series, I explore how we can transform those all too familiar family chaos moments into calm through faith! The show airs on TV in NJ and is available on demand for everyone here.

I'd love to connect with you! Be sure to find me on Twitter and Facebook.
