I’m Krystal, the older sister of this blogging duo. I am a disciple of Christ, an ordinary mom serving an extraordinary Savior, and I am just so humbled that He saw fit to choose little old me to be part of such an incredible ministry. Not only do I get to write about His unending Grace and unconditional Love, I get to do it with my favorite person on the face of this planet, my sister and BFF, Keri!
A self-proclaimed book nerd, Dr. Pepper junkie, and color-coded planner fanatic, I love all things related to finance, organization, and cleaning. I am passionate about paying off debt, inspiring others in their faith, and living each day with purpose. Many moons ago, my aim was to live a life of perfection. After a little bit of living, I’ve decided perfection is overrated, and I much prefer to live a life of balance and simplicity while serving my sweet family and the God who entrusted me with them.
Speaking of my family…
I married my college sweetheart, Josh. (Awwwwwww!) A constant source of encouragement, he listens to my crazy dreams and supports them wholeheartedly. Life gets a little crazy at times and he is the perfect teammate to help our family stay sane…most days. :o)
We have been blessed with two amazing daughters, McKayla and Shayne, who are constant reminders of the blessings God has given me. Every day is a new opportunity to teach God’s grace, love, mercy, and hope, and I am convinced motherhood is just the best job in the whole. Wide. World! As a teacher-turned homeschooling mama, I’m holding onto every memory our little foursome can make.
The beginnings of a new type of family…
Lately, I’ve felt the Lord stretching me, molding me, breaking my heart for the things that break His. I’ve learned that He takes our sufferings and uses them as a beacon to spread the light of His love. And I’ve learned firsthand that Christ calls us to surrender everything to Him. He calls us to share our experiences with each other, to encourage one another, to form authentic relationships in a Christ-centered community.
And that, my friends, is my heart behind this blog. That we can lower our walls, share our hearts with one another, and form a community of women spanning all walks and seasons of life. A community of women who can point each other closer to Christ and spread the gospel. A community that will help extend the strength and support Christ so freely gives.
My prayer is that this little slice of blogland will be just that to all of you! A constant source of grace and encouragement to any woman who visits the Little Light on a Hill community.
