I’m Crystal, with a “C” – I’m a team builder, educator and writer. I’m also a lover of fresh markets, lattes and all things French.
If we met in person, I’m sure we’d be fast friends, because I believe you are capable of more than you think you are. I believe you have a purpose that only you can fulfill. And I’d enjoy hearing all about what you love, what you’re good at and what makes you happy!
I’d ask what it is that makes you feel alive and sends your spirit soaring, I’d encourage you to dream big and believe that you matter and what you do matters…for the sake of a legacy. And, I’d challenge you to embrace your passions, even if it means stepping outside of your comfort zone – again and again and again.
Because I know the power of stretching to reveal passion and silence fear.
Because I’ve learned how our stories bring hope and healing, I’d share my story of how fear rattled me deep and kept me caged for too many years, unable to see hope or a future. How this fear instilled in me as a child nearly broke me and became a pivotal moment of intentional choices that gave me a front row seat to God’s wild and uncontainable love.
And how that intention was driven by a passion for something more, something authentic and something brave. Not just for me, but for my marriage and my children. That something was a deep desire for a legacy overflowing with hope…the kind that breaks dysfunctional cycles and sets captive hearts free.
Because I know the power of hope to transform a future and silence the past.
I’d remind you that no matter where you’ve been, or what mistakes you’ve made, you are not alone – and you certainly are not without hope. I’d invite you to meet here, each week, where I’d point you to the One who gives lasting hope. Together, we’d be encouraged to actively and continually step toward a legacy far beyond our ability to imagine. A legacy that overpowers the worst choice, the deepest hurt and the darkest path.
And with each meeting and each act of intention, we’d be strengthened and chiseled and sculpted. Our passions no longer lying untouchable in the distance because intention requires us to press into them and into Him. We’d trust in the blessing of intention and the promise of a God who is for us and with us. We’d brave the difficult hurdles, stare fear in the face, and we would most definitely become fueled to pursue the very thing we were created to be and do…for the sake of a legacy.
Because I know the power of a little bit of intention and a lot of passion to create an overflowing legacy of hope.
