About Kristi Woods
Do you ever feel the need to be perfect?
Ever feel “not enough”?
It resembles a pair of sweat-laden jeans on a sweltering, summer day, doesn’t it?
Perfection, rejection — both standing as enemies of the spirit.
Those battles rage. I’ve fought them. Maybe you have, too?
This space in the blogosphere? It’s for fighters — for Monday through Sunday worshipers. It’s a place where we toss perfection overboard, sailing instead in the strength and with the guidance of our heavenly Father. It’s a place where women walk deeper with God.
About that Bio…
Kristi Woods is a speaker and author who loves to see women walk deeper with God Almighty. She invites others to join her in the faith journey. Kristi blogs regularly at www.KristiWoods.net as well at other publications and online sites. Her written and spoken messages invigorate women to walk deeper with Him, to leave behind a life of Sunday pew-sitting, becoming Monday through Sunday worshipers. She and her handsome, retired Navy man reside in Oklahoma with their three eager teenagers, rescued dogs, and two sometimes-at-odds cats.
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. (Read more of our story here.)
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.
Hubby and I have three children–two teens and one adult now: 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, I suppose. All three 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. 🙂
After Tony & I got saved then baptized in a little lake near Newnan, Georgia, he reenlisted in the Navy. During our military years, we washed dishes and tossed laundry over chairs in Honolulu, Tampa, Atlanta, Virginia Beach, Jacksonville, and rural, northeastern North Carolina. Tough duty stations, some of those, but someone had to do it.
However, hubby’s now retired from the US Navy, and we’ve planted roots in Oklahoma.
And God? He stands at the helm. He’s taken me from the tangles of depression, the
dream nightmare of perfection, the nuance of pride, the cloak of rejection, and more. We serve a magnificent healer.
