Sylvia Munoz Schnopp, MBA and Licensed Minister is a first-generation Latina of Mexican parents who witnessed the Cristero Revolution, the 20th-Century religious civil war of Mexico.
Currently serving as City Councilmember for the City of Port Hueneme, CA, she recognizes that her leadership role and civic engagement was set in motion by several ancestors who attained judicial appointments and political offices in rural areas, cities, states and for the country of Mexico.
At 19 she first visited her grandfather's house in Arandas, Jalisco, Mexico which left impressionable memories including a vision. Twenty-seven years later while conducting research for Abandoned Angels©, she realized the house was used as an underground church and hiding place for priests as well as a brave Cristero soldier now featured in her book.
