Though Kristy had accepted Christ as a child, she stubbornly chose to do things her way during her teen years which resulted in her dropping out of high school and facing an unplanned pregnancy all by age twenty. God’s amazing power to turn mistakes into miracles as well as his unique sense of humor all became very real when she discovered she was expecting TWINS!
A few months after the twins’ first birthday Kristy and their father were married. However, the rocky beginning coupled with doubts and resentments began to kill the love they once shared. After being separated not once, but twice, they both realized they needed serious help if there was any chance of saving their marriage.
After several years of marriage counseling, completing a recovery program at their church, and large doses of determination, they began the journey towards healing from past hurts, habits, and hang ups.
Today, thanks to the new skills they’ve learned and tools they use, Kristy and her husband have been married for 22 years. Besides being a wife and mom of three daughters; Kristy leads a support group for wives at Saddleback Valley Community Church where they’ve been members since 1992.
