Fellowship of Christian Writers (Tulsa, OK)
Kristi’s topics include:
Rejection Denied: God’s On Your Side
Have you ever felt unwanted, discarded, or simply “not enough”? Has “Not you,” or “I’ve found someone else,” crashed down with the volatility and weight of a mountain avalanche?
When others cast us aside, it hurts. And sometimes we pack that pain for life’s journey, carrying it for years.
Jesus deems us accepted, not rejected. He offers hope in place of hurt. He heals those spaces of pain caused by rejection, allowing us to live a life of beautiful freedom.
This session encourages women to deny rejection’s reach in their life through the acceptance of their Father.
God’s Girl: Labeled by His Love
(Suitable for a retreat or keynote)
“You mean I don’t love myself, Lord?” I whispered the question into the air one day while sitting in our bedroom in Hawaii.
The Holy Spirit stirred within me, counseling that a lack of love for self creates difficulties in truly loving others. Many of us face this battle. We scour at our reflection, silently casting judgment for our shortcomings.
Meanwhile, love for the Creator and His creation–us–remains blanketed.
Our reflection isn’t simply a face in the mirror–a work of our hands. We the work of God’s hands, and praise belongs to Him.
We display beautifully the handiwork of God Almighty. Our Father made us in fearful and wonderful fashion. (Psalm 139:14) What’s not to love?
In this session, Kristi’s personal stories and various Bible verses encourage women to view themselves as God’s creation–not a product of their own power. It challenges them to step into a place of love and awe of God. Call it the beginning of a journey of loving God, self, and others.
I will give thanks to you,
for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Your works are wonderful.
My soul knows that very well.
PS 139:14 WEB
Trust: Germination of a Bold & Beautiful Faith
When good times ring, do we trust God? What about the storms, when times of fear, discouragement, or dread hit? What then? Do we dare trust God when the consequences might hurt?
Darkness loves to tempt us to retain control. But God calls us to trust in Him. The choice is ours.
Trust in the Lord stands as an essential element in our spiritual growth and maturity. It strengthens us to weather those strong winds and storms blowing in life. This session will encourage women to trust God, then watch a bold and beautiful faith unfold.
Trust in Yahweh with all your heart, and don’t lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
Proverbs 3:5-6 WEB
Our ministry is relatively large, and comprised mainly of military spouses. Having been a military spouse herself, the stories Kristi shared to support her message were not only fun and engaging, but were scenarios that many of us could relate to. I very much appreciated how she spoke directly to our ladies without reading a lot of power point slides or notes, and that the steps she shared were not complicated, and easily applicable to our daily lives. Kristi’s message was an awesome reflection of God’s Word, and the scriptures she shared encourage me daily.
