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 over 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, DaySpring's (in)courage.me, and the TODAY Show Parenting Team.

I am the author and host of a cable TV parenting series called Chaos to Calm with Noelle Kirchner. In this series, I explore how we can transform those all too familiar family chaos moments into calm through faith! The show airs on HomeTowne TV in NJ and is also available on demand. To watch past episodes or to view my recent televised sermons, you can find YouTube links here.

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