My name is Krysti and I have a serious love affair with words. 

That’s all you need to know, really.

Reading them, writing them, sharing them, speaking them – words hold so much power and beauty. Words hold so much potential. I’m forever fascinated by their ability to shout Truth or whisper lies, to shine Hope or keep people in the dark.

I’m a ex-“missionary” (…who hates the word missionary) currently learning about the holy calling of Staying Put. I’m forever a world-changer type – but I’m learning that changing the world has a whole lot more to do with changing ourselves than we like to think.

I don’t have all the answers, but I sure have a lot of thoughts. I’m learning to be okay with not always being right. I’m learning to be okay with not always being perfect.

I almost always have a book in my purse and I am 1000% committed to the idea of owning a raccoon as a pet one day. I’m a 5 on the Enneagram and an ISTJ, if you’re into that kind of thing. (I’m very into it.)

Sarcasm is my love language. Yoga is my favorite spiritual practice. Craft beer and board games rank high on my list of favorite pastimes. I plan a lot of events around food. I drop my phone about 7 times a day. I’m a little iffy on the American Church Machine, but I’m a big fan of Jesus.

Puns make me ridiculously happy (along with ice cream, donuts, and used book stores). I’ve been known to get overly excited over tupperware. I ask a lot of questions, always. But who said there’s anything wrong with questions?

  1. Thanks Krysti for your inspiring words in your article about singleness (“8 things you should never say to your single friends”). You captured the struggles perfectly. Thank you for being our voice!

  2. Hey Krysti…

    I just wanted to leave you a short message (hopefully one you will find encouraging), to let you know how I’ve really enjoyed your RELEVANT articles on singleness over the last while. Your ability to communicate the balance between the power of relationship yet the beauty of singleness has been super refreshing. I think in Church circles we can lose the focus a bit.

    I guess a lot of this comes from the joy of an intimate relationship with Jesus. Jumping on your site here I understood a bit of why you were able to portray joy in your articles – because its clear you consciously decide to live joyously.

    I’m sure you get many words of encouragement Krysti, but thank you and keep writing – there’s at least one Scottish dude who loves what you your putting down.

    • I second that! Another reader happy to hear a balanced, sound opinion on singleness as a blessing and not a curse. Blessings from Singapore.
