Darcie Maze studied Child Evangelism at Christ for Nations Institute in Dallas, Texas, and Life Bible College. She is known nationally for her teacher-training workshops and seminars, crossing many denominational lines and for designing her own distinctive line of puppets with a removable heart. They are found in over 150 countries. One of her puppets is currently seen on the Cartoon Network.

Since 2003, Darcie has teamed with Mary Rice Hopkins; their newest release, Mary Rice Hopkins & Puppets with a Heart, is a high-definition DVD with two hours of puppet fun, covering: choices and character, peer pressure, being yourself, brokenness, serving with our talents and values. TBN is airing segments from the DVD on their programming.
