I’m Crystal and I am so appreciative that you took some time to get to know me!
As mentioned on the homepage, I have a passion for learning. I’ve grown in a number of areas, which seems to act as categories for a quick outline of my life: I am a wife, a mother, a full-time employee, an avid horsewoman and competitor, and I love me some Jesus!
I love all areas of my life. Each is a challenge in its own right and each has provided me with the endless opportunity of personal growth.
I’ve been married for a little over 3 years. My husband I are, as God intended for us to be, a balance of each other. We’ve worked hand in hand to build our life. We work through the challenges and enjoy the rewards. We have different backgrounds, perspectives and ways of handling things but, it’s been beneficial for both of us. We’ve both grown a lot in a short period of time. My favorite thing about him is that he dreams as big as I do. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for us!
My son was born in February of 2018. He is a blessing that words can’t describe. I’ve never known a love like this. I know you mamas know exactly what I’m referring to – the kind of love that can bring joy and fear at the same rate. I am so excited about his future. I know God has big thing planned for this little baby that I hold.
Horses are my hobby and another passion. I spent a few years showing pretty consistently with success. Having a baby has completely reprioritized my life, meaning horses are a lot more distant. Everything has it’s season and I am taking it all in stride <– see what I did there 😉 I know showing will soon again be on my schedule!
My faith is my foundation. I have been shown more grace than I deserve and a love that has rebuilt me from the inside out. We currently attend a small church and are among some of the youngest couples who attend. However, I learn so much from watching the older members live out Christ’s love. The oldest woman in my bible study is 90+. That means something to me! We should never quit seeking God’s word.
I enjoy every area of my life and know I haven’t gotten here by accident. I want to reach other women, who are weary, hurt and defeated. Women are required to be so strong but are not spared from any pain. We are also blessed with the responsibility of managing households, businesses, and pouring into the next generation, as we raise our babies. I want this to be a place for restoration, motivation and peace. Women have a great deal of influence on this world. I believe that if we take care of ourselves and each other, our families and communities will benefit.
