DeAnne Flynn is the grateful (and tired) mother of seven active children, ranging in age from twenty-one to eight. She graduated with high honors in broadcast journalism from Brigham Young University, served an LDS mission to New England, and worked as a news anchor/reporter in both radio and television before hosting a national business talk show for a private satellite television network. For years she enjoyed being a freelance scriptwriter and has written both lyrics and melody lines for several national jingles. She also worked as the public relations director for an international real estate firm before becoming a mother.
Today, as chief executive nose-wiper, schedule-keeper, and bedtime story teller, DeAnne feels she’s earned an advanced degree in “Managing Busy Lives.” She is the author of The Time-Starved Family: Helping Overloaded Families Focus on What Matters Most, and The Mother’s Mite: Why Even Our Smallest Efforts Matter. She and her husband, Craig, reside near Salt Lake City.
