Deborah Knapp's Bio:
When Deborah Knapp learned about the moment of silence Texas children would be allowed to observe during the school day, she was excited about her daughter's new opportunity to create a more intimate relationship with God. She understands the difficulty of portraying God's love to children in a concise and appealing manner, and felt the school day might be an intimidating setting for real conversation with God. She developed My 60 Seconds, a short journal to record daily conversation with the Lord, for her daughter and other children around the country so they could benefit from the short time they have during the day.
"My true desire is that each child would use their 60 seconds each day to simply plug in and let God touch their hearts, open their eyes, and fill their minds with His love and His wisdom," says Knapp. "I want our kids to know that Jesus loves them and I want them to let their little lights shine!"
Knapp is currently an independent consultant for BearingPoint, Inc. Before consulting, she spent more than 25 years working in Texas state governement. Most recently, Knapp worked as a policy analyst for the Texas Senate where she coordinated, filed and tracked legislation. Prior to the Texas Senate, her other positions included work at the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, and supervisory and managerial positions at the Texas State Comptroller of Public Accounts.
Born and raised in Texas, Knapp is deeply involved in her daughters' lives. She has volunteered as a Girl Scout leader for 20 years, a Bible study leader, and a member of the PTA board. She resides in Round Rock, Texas with her husband and youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and the mother of Knapp's grandson. Knapp graduated from Tarleton State University with a BA in English, Government, and History.
