CANDY ABBOTT is an author, publisher, inspirational speaker, and grandmom. But most of all, she sees herself as a “fruitbearer” as it is her life’s goal to exhibit the Fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22-23) in all that she does. She began writing in 1983, around the same time she co-founded Sisters in Christ, a women's prayer group. Candy is a charter member of Southern Delaware Toastmasters, elder and deacon at the Georgetown Presbyterian Church, director of the annual Fruitbearer conference, and founder of Delmarva Christian Writers’ Fellowship. In January 2014, Candy founded Mothers With a Mission, an organization devoted to strengthening the moral and spiritual foundation of our homes, families, and communities. She and her husband, Drew, own and operate Fruitbearer Publishing, LLC, an award-winning company, established in 1999. They have three children and four grandchildren, all near their home in Georgetown, Delaware. For more information visit
