Being Family Life’s receptionist, Cindy is genuinely compelled to make every person feel like their call is the most important call of the day. She may never meet the people she speaks with, but Cindy is blessed to use her gifts and talents to make a special impression.

Looking back, every time she talks about how God provided jobs for her and her husband at Family Life, Cindy gets goose bumps! There was a time when both of their previous jobs had been in jeopardy due to budget cuts. Giving their concerns over to God, both husband and wife prayed for a place of employment where they could help further the Lord’s work.

The Pruniers prayed for over a year, and after hearing about the receptionist job on FLN, Cindy eagerly applied. While waiting for an interview, Joe remarked with determination, “I’m going to work at Family Life, too!” The very next day Cindy heard of another job opening at the ministry – one for a building and grounds supervisor! Cindy quickly told her husband, Joe, and the Lord’s plan became quite obvious. Now both full-time employees, Cindy and Joe are humbled to a part of a ministry having meant so much to them throughout the years!

Prior to Family Life, Cindy worked in the Elmira School District as an attendance clerk and welcome center receptionist. Before that, she held jobs in special education as a teacher’s aide, secretary, and yearbook advisor. Cindy has three married sons of her own and three step-children. Between them, she and Joe have several grandchildren. In her free time, she loves spoiling the grand kids, dabbling in photography, and scrap booking.
