Gigi Schweikert

"Inspirational, encouraging and real," that's what audiences and readers across the country say have to say about Gigi Schweikert. Known for her humor and practical messages, Gigi is a popular speaker for early childhood conferences, churches, women's events, and parenting seminars. Gigi is a national expert on early childhood education, child care, and ministry supervision and team-building.

Gigi's latest books include, Church Nanny SOS: Teaching Essentials for Preschool Ministry Volunteers and Prime Times: A Handbook for Excellence in Infant and Toddlers Programs, written with Jim Greenman and Anne Stonehouse. She also has several books on parenting including There's a Perfect Angel in Every Child: Discipline Tips That Work and I'm a Good Mother, for the not-so-perfect Mom. She contributes to periodicals and journals including The Church Herald, Children and Families, eFamily News, Northwest Baby & Child, Cricket Magazine and Child Care Information Exchange.

As a busy mom, Gigi admits that she's served orange soda to her family for breakfast trying to pass it off as orange juice. Oh, well! Besides making breakfast, Gigi directed the United Nations Early Childhood Program in New York City and developed the Johnson & Johnson System of Family Centers. Her other clients include Prudential, Community Bible Study International, Bank of America, Merck, IBM, Genentech and SC Johnson Wax.

Gigi also hosted the television show, "Today's Family." She's a frequent radio and television guest appearing on Real Life, Newsmakers, and Cross Talk.

When Gigi's not in front of the computer writing, she's behind the wheel of a mini-van carting around her four kids. Although originally from North Carolina, Gigi lives in New Jersey with her husband, four children, three dogs, many chickens, and one turtle.
