My passion is to inspire women to place their hope in Jesus Christ – the one source for our every need.
I drink far too much coffee, I have an obnoxiously loud laugh, and I am terrible at small talk. I tend to dive straight into deep conversation. If you and I were first meeting over coffee, and perhaps a nice meal, I imagine it wouldn’t be five minutes before we are bearing our souls to one another, laughing obnoxiously, and no doubt even crying at times.
I wish that was how were were meeting now.
My name is Crystal, and these good looking people are my family…
They are the one’s who fill my days and provide loads of good material for my writing! I’m a city girl from the west coast and my husband, Wes, is a country boy from the hills of Virginia. We’ve shared twenty-two years of marriage together, so far, and have been blessed with three children, and two grandchildren.
Life is full of fun surprises, isn’t it? But, it can also be painfully challenging at times. I believe that is why God gives us girlfriends we bear our souls to, share our burdens with, and learn the art of navigating the challenges of everyday life. The best kind of friends are those who encourage us to draw close to God, and to place our hope in Jesus Christ.
That is my heart for you, dear friend – to encourage you to place your hope in Christ.
He certainly has transformed my life, and even as a survivor of childhood sexual abuse I can say with all honesty that GOD IS GOOD. I know first hand that He has the power to FULLY heal our deepest wounds and restore all that has been taken or lost.
I hope you’ll find some needed encouragement, hope, and inspiration here. If I haven’t completely run you off yet, let’s connect on social media. I’m pretty active on Facebook and Twitter, and if you ever find yourself in Wilmington, NC, let me know – the coffee will be on me!
