Longtime residents of Greater Nashville, TN, Cecil and Patty Kemp are highly respected life, leadership, spiritual and business coaches and mentors.  They are known for their powerful books and their imaginative and entertaining storytelling and instructive, challenging and unique approach to speaking and teaching. Married since 1970, they are parents twice over and have four grandchildren.

Patty's career began with a large financial services company, while Cecil started as a CPA at Touche Ross, now Deloitte Touche. At 23, he became chief financial officer of a publicly held healthcare company and, before 30, its chief operating officer. 

From 1982 to 1998, the Kemps owned and operated many successful businesses, including a financial services group of companies that managed over $100,000,000 for a nationwide client base that included several thousand individuals and businesses.

In June of 1998, Patty and Cecil answered God’s call into full-time marketplace ministry. They sold all but one of their businesses.  Since, they have focused their energy full-time on The Wisdom Company...an umbrella organization that includes a flourishing life, leadership and business consulting practice, a private publishing company, an internet store, a retreat ministry outreach and the Difference Maker Foundation.

Together, the Kemps seek to educate, inspire, and empower individuals to live a God-led life that assures leaving a positive imprint on every person touched.  

Through their books, coaching, mentoring and speaking, Cecil and Patty equip their customers and clients with the tools necessary to practice the Servant Model of Life and Leadership of the first and greatest DifferenceMaker... Jesus Christ.  

Cecil and Patty remind us that God’s way is the only one that leads to real and lasting success in both our personal and professional lives.
