About Kristi Woods
Ever Had God Change Your Plans?
I was a nonfiction writer, then God changed my plans.
This website was dedicated to nonfiction, faith-building tools until recently. That shifted as 2021 rolled onto shore and 2020 out to sea. And I was nervous.
What about you, KristiWoods.net readers and subscribers? How should I combine faith-building tools with stories that entertain yet also tell of a character’s faith journey? Or should I? Yikes! I didn’t know, so I prayed.
“God, am I a fiction or nonfiction writer?”
A few weeks later, while standing near the bathroom sink–a holy space, right?!–I received an answer to that prayer.
You’re a Storyteller.
The answer settled in my spirit, and me itch to be either a fiction or nonfiction writer disappeared. God called me to simply tell stories that point to His glory.
And so I will.
Here, in this tiny space on the giant Internet, you’ll find a new focus on story: God’s and ours–and how they intermix.
- On the Free Christian Resources page (and other spaces too), look for nonfiction resources to help build your awe-inspiring faith story.
- Bible studies, like the ones on this page, will help too.
- In this mix also rises a library of fictional stories, both short and novel-length, that tackle topics real people like you and me struggle with.
- Look for upcoming nonfiction resources related to the topics my characters deal with, tools for you and me to use.

The Skinny About Me
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 grown or nearly grown children: Joel, Rebekah, and Caleb. (If you haven’t already figured it out, the picture below is from several years ago. They were so cute, I couldn’t resist keeping it here online!)
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 continues to stand at our 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. And if you haven’t already experienced this, He’ll heal you too. And what a story that will be!
