Hi there, my name is Crystal and I love learning, reading, and healthy living to a point, I do love my chocolate and drink way more coffee than is normal. I also love essential oils, DYI crafts and journals.
Mother, wife, ministry… some of the many labels that have described me or will be describing me soon. It’s a lot, especially when it wasn’t the “plan”. I’ve always had a plan, an idea of where my life was headed from the time I was 13. However it didn’t exactly match up with God’s plan.
I’m a newbie to this stage in my life, being only married a year and a half, with a our first baby on the way and my husbands start in ministry, everything is new, exciting and a little chaotic. That busy lifestyle isn’t new to me, everyone has chaotic schedules and things to do. I don’t know about you guys but not having a plan or knowing what’s happening can be pretty scary. Anything that helps navigate it and fully trust that God’s plan is at play gives me a sense of peace but it also takes a little courage.
I want to go back to school and I want to continue being a constant support for my husband in his ministry and wherever God takes us in it. As well being a new mom and a good wife. I want to make sure there is always time for my family and my marriage. It can be lot to juggle and some days it can seem impossible.
That’s why I started this blog, for other women out there who are just starting to navigate marriage, motherhood and ministry, but for all us women as we continue to navigate life. I wanted to create a community of mothers, wives and ministry leaders who can be there and support one another. To help others each other to have faith in God’s plan for their life and the life of their family. I want us to learn to trust that He will give us the tools and the courage to lead our families, grow our children in their faith and grow our relationships. To help each other courageously navigate life. Check out My Dream to learn more about Courageously Navigating Life.
