Speaker and Author
Kristi Woods is a speaker and author who loves to see women walk deeper with God Almighty. She believes He has more in store than simply sitting in Sunday pews. She journeys alongside, encouraging and equipping believers to live spiritually beyond surface-level, to live a life of Monday through Sunday worship.
Kristi blogs regularly here at www.KristiWoods.net as well at at other publications and online sites. Her written and spoken messages invigorate women to draw closer to their Father, know who they are in His eyes, love themselves just as God has made them, and use that knowledge to live day to day life in in-depth ways.
She and her handsome, retired Navy man reside in Oklahoma with their two eager teenagers, one growing tween, two ambitious dogs, and two sometimes-at-odds cats.
What to Expect Here at the Blog
Join me and others from around the world on www.KristiWoods.net. Here’s what to expect:
Monday ~ We deposit God’s Word deep into our hearts with #ScriptureBank2106, a scripture memorization come-along. Have you always wanted to learn verses by heart? Jump in anytime. This is for you.
Tuesday ~ New, weekly blog posts face and overcome the raw of real-life. This is where we hit discouragement, fear, and other life curveballs out of the park while scoring love, faith, and courage.
1st Tuesdays (of each month) offer a real-life, not-to-miss, “look-at-what-God-has-done” testimony from other writers around the globe at #YourStory. (They’re goodies not to miss.)
Fridays, a hot-off-the-press book review hits the blog waves. You might find your next, life-impacting read (aside from God’s Word, of course) here.
Now…for the Backstage Scene
I was a mail order bride. Sort of. My retired Navy man, Tony, and I met in a letter over twenty years ago. We became Desert Storm pen pals in 1991 when my letter to “Any Service Person” was mailed into his life and, consequently, he sailed into mine. I love a man in uniform, and mine knows how to be oh-so-patient with me. The two mix much better than oil and water. We are living proof.
My patient man in uniform and I overflow with three blessings, better known as Joel, Rebekah, and Caleb. They are often found standing outside the bathroom door, vying for attention and conversation. It’s proof that they are perfectly normal kids! All three, teenagers and a preteen, continue to amaze me daily with the gifts and abilities God has placed in them… and that they continue to hang around the bathroom door.
Dishes have been washed and laundry folded, somewhat, in Honolulu, Tampa, Atlanta, Virginia Beach, Jacksonville, and rural, northeastern North Carolina. These dots on the map were home for our family during our Navy tenure. Today, we wash dishes and throw clean (and sometimes dirty) laundry over a chair in Oklahoma. The Sooner State is the beginning paragraph of our recent, new chapter called military retirement. It is now home.
Thanks for visiting, my friend. Feel free to contact me here. To God be the glory as we worship and walk deeper with the Lord.
