Located in Humble, Texas, Carmen Wisenbaker works with local authors to help make their inspiring creations become a reality.

Ideal projects include inspirational books, devotionals, and Christian coloring books for those wanting to publish books to sell or gift them to others. She also works with charities looking for great fundraisers or causes to brand their message and information inside to help spread the word. All publishing projects must be pre-approved and as her schedule allows.

Donald Wisenbaker – after 42 years as an engineer, he retired from Baker Hughes which was located in Houston, Texas. He now spends his time driving his wife around on projects they work on together. They mostly do volunteer work with their church, charities, and various ministries in their community. Donald was born and raised in a little town called Humble, Texas, and still resides there to this day. He has been married to Carmen since 1990 and they love to spend time together fellowshipping with those they love.

Carmen Wisenbaker – now semi-retired, is the owner of Penworth Publishing, which was founded in 2001. Prior to owning her own business, her career experience in the publishing industry spanned more than 30 years. She still enjoys consulting, but also likes to donate some projects that involve her ministry work. She thoroughly enjoys cooking, fun graphic design and publishing projects, volunteering, gathering with friends and family, and spending time with her hubby, (as she fondly calls him, her Dreamy “D”). She was born and raised in a much smaller town just north of Humble – called Porter, Texas. So, they both consider themselves “country” folks!

Our Ministries:
In 2023, God lead Carmen to start the “1st Responders Appreciation Squad” where she is the Volunteer Coordinator. The group shows 1st Responders (both Firefighters and Police Officers in the Humble and Atascocita, Texas areas), appreciation for their service through a Prayer team, a Card Writing team, and a Goodie Basket team that delivers baked goods and tasty treats periodically to each station.

Our Program About Volunteering:

Speaking Availability: Carmen is available to speak at your group’s meetings on the topic: “Identifying Your G.I.F.T. for Serving Others and Your Community.” This program helps those attending identify their true passion and find the right volunteer opportunity by using a fun, pick-and-choose quiz designed to identify their preferences by personality and strengths. It also helps charity leadership match volunteers with the right tasks for much better success in their efforts. Carmen also hands out a “Community Volunteer Resource List” that lists many organizations in which to get involved within the area. This helps them find the perfect volunteer opportunity. She loves to “match” both the volunteer to the right opportunity to serve their community in the best way possible (whether with her own group – the 1st Responders Appreciation Squad, or another group).
