Natalie Ard helps break down the “big subject” of life and faith for kids through fun games, books and toys. She’s an entrepreneur, a small business owner, creator of books and games for children, author and Illustrator, and believer. She’s also a wife, and a mother to three!
A driven entrepreneur, Natalie built the Star From Afar Kids company on the foundation of creating inspirational, interactive games and toys that help children play with a purpose. Star From Afar Kids creates toys and games that are both meaningful and playful. Their mission is to inspire children and to spark their curiosity and creativity by developing products that deliver positive messages and create lasting family memories. Natalie is the creator, author, and illustrator of The Christmas Star From Afar® and The Easter Story Egg™. Growing the business from her dining room table, Star From Afar Kids products are now featured in Barnes & Noble, Cracker Barrel and on QVC.
A former stay-at-home mom (which is hard enough work!), Natalie has developed into an inspiring entrepreneur, learning along the way what to do - and what not to do. She proudly wears the title of both callings as a “mompreneur.”
