Mark LaMaster's mission is to offer encouragement and inspiration for men to become the fathers they’ve always dreamed of being. He believes that all dads have an incredible, God-given opportunity to make a lasting positive impact on their children, their families, and their earthly homes.

A former nurse, Mark has authored two books:

  • Friday Night Lights: For Fathers and Sons, published in December 2015, is a game plan for dads to help develop their sons into the men God intended them to be.
  • Friday Night Lights: For Fathers and Daughters, published in May 2018, is a guide to producing ten episodes of your own personal TV series, covering topics from faith and friendships to social media and self-image.

Mark wants to make sure each and every dad out there has access to positive, encouraging, and faith-filled resources about how to be the best parent they can be. He seeks to build a sense of community among like-minded fathers who want to learn from, strengthen, and support one another in a space free of judgment or criticism. Mark creates faith-filled fatherhood resources because the Bible has instructed us (dads) to help one another along on our earthly journey while we look with hope to our ultimate destination: heaven.

Mark lives in Minnesota with his beautiful bride, Jen, and two amazing children, Hannah and Lincoln.

Sonia Lovett was born in August of 1952 in Cape Town South Africa. She is from British and Italian descent and soon after she was born, her family moved to Argentina. Her grandfather had several ranches and had moved from Britain to help run a family business.

Sonia grew up in Buenos Aires, a very cosmopolitan, fashion-conscious city, under the influence of two very fashionable women: her mother and her grandmother. When Sonia and her sister were of age, they were sent to a school in Switzerland to finish their education.

Sonia has lived in many countries in South America. Fluent in both Spanish and English, she thinks in both languages and had a heavy British accent until she came to live in the United States for an extended period of time.

Sonia believes that living and visiting other countries fosters an open mind and greater receptivity to other cultures and ideas. Her love for fashion and travel were nurtured from an early age, when ideas regarding color and style made a notable impression. Her European sensibility, however, has always informed her choices and still do to this day.

Of her fashion tastes, Sonia writes on her website,

"I have noticed that at this time in my life I am embracing more color than I used to. A neutral pallet however is still the chicest thing around. I don’t wear many prints (I get bored easily) so I prefer to have solid colors and accent with accessories; you get so much more wear out of your clothes that way. I believe in family traditions and my sister and I have both saved family heirlooms which we wear to this day. I believe in great bags and shoes, tailoring and following trends in limited doses and only to the extent that they suit you."

Today, Sonia and her husband make their home in Montana. They have a daughter who is a stylist living in LA and who Sonia says "inspires me to stay young and explore new possibilities."
