More than anything in the world, Crystal loves Jesus and wants her life to be poured out in love for Him. She also loves being a wife and homeschool mom (though she definitely has moments when she wishes she could throw in the towel — if only she could find a clean one!) She’s a self-proclaimed minimalist in just about every area but books (because you can never have too many books, can you?) and one of her favorite things is having a heart-to-heart conversation with a friend over a good cup of coffee. Crystal is passionate about encouraging and challenging women to wisely steward their time and resources and live life on purpose.
