Daryl Kraft

Author and Teacher 

Daryl D. Kraft, president and founding owner of a nationwide building maintenance company, is a native Californian and 1965 graduate of Biola University. In 1963 he purchased a small janitorial business while still in college and subsequently incorporated it in 1970. During the next five decades, Environment Control has expanded into 42 companies in 19 states, and now operates the corporate headquarters in Coeur d’Alene, ID.

 He is the author of six inspirational books: Living Waters, Joy for Today,
A Simplified Life, A Different Place, Knowing the God Who Chose You, and The Businessman’s Guide to Real Success.

Whether in his writings, his nationally-distributed weekly Bible study lessons, or his day-to-day dealings with others, Daryl seeks to share one simple, liberating message: that the Christian life—is in fact the glorious peace and freedom-filled reality of experiencing Christ Himself, growing and manifesting His life—in us.

He and his wife Sherryl make their home in Hayden, Idaho, and have four grown children, 12 grandchildren, and 8 great-grandchildren.
