Cindy Woods Berry was born in Houston, Texas, and attended Houston Baptist University. She started taking piano lessons from her church organist when she was six years old, and started composing original songs when she was a teenager. But writing/composing was more of a hobby until God “called her” to write in 1983. Since then, she has devoted about half her writing time to choral anthems (for adults and children), and half to arranging for piano. Her anthems, musicals, and piano collections are found in the catalogs of many major publishers. She has received ASCAP Special Awards for many years, and enjoys leading “composer weekends” and conferences throughout the country. Cindy has always been active in her local church music ministry, serving as church pianist and children’s choir director. Her goal in writing is to always present her music as an offering of worship and praise to God. Cindy and her husband Bruce are blessed to have three adult sons and four grandsons. They make their home in Killeen, Texas.
