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 four decades, Environment Control has expanded into 42 companies in 19 states.
In addition to his ongoing responsibilities at his corporate headquarters in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, Daryl accepts occasional speaking engagements, presenting topics such as Right Thinking; Criticism Is My Friend; What Is a Christian Businessman?; and, If Taking My Wife, Bear Hunting Isn’t Love—What Is?
He is the author of four inspirational books: 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 and 14 grandchildren.
James begins his letter with one of the most profoundly paradoxical statements in all of scripture: “Consider it all joy…when you encounter various trials” (James 1:2).
