Our Purpose

Nancy M Faltermeier

Nancy Meyers Faltermeier writes non-fiction and Young Adult fantasy. In past years she worked full time with a ministry noted for the children’s albums Music Machine and Bullfrogs and Butterflies. There she wrote skits, plays, and songs. Music she wrote, found publication in two songbooks and four recordings by different artists.


She has also taught Bible Studies on many different topics and levels. After homeschooling her children through high school, she is dedicating her time bringing hope to the hurting through the written word. Nancy resides at the base of the Rockies in beautiful Colorado with her husband, two adult children, two parakeets, and a backyard nursery of wild cottontail bunnies. In her spare time, she enjoys hiking, amateur photography, and scrap-booking.

During the opening general session of a writer’s conference, Nancy noticed a young woman leaving the meeting early. Across the hall she appeared strikingly similar to her son’s birth-mother. She dismissed the thought that it might be her.

 Later, as she returned to her room, Nancy's roommate spoke of a woman she felt Nancy needed to meet. The next morning the woman she spoke of was none other than Nancy's son’s birth-mom.

This was another miracle God 

performed in their relationship.


That was the day Entwined by Adoption was born. They knew the rest of their miraculous story needed to be told.


Unknown to them, not only was the book born, but the From Dust 2 Diamonds ministry emerged.


It is their prayer to minister to hurting hearts in many realms of struggle, through the written word.
