About Me

Here's a little about me and a little about my blog, Simply Chrissy!

First...this is me...

...that's me and my husband on August 5, 2011.

I'm Chrissy, and I love being a mother of four sweet kiddos: a 10-year-old named Caleb, an 8-year-old named Sarah, an almost 6-year-old named Gabriel, and a 2-year-old named Leah.

From left to right, Leah, Sarah, Caleb, and Gabriel in March of 2014.

I graduated from Owensville High School in 1998, and graduated from Southwest Baptist University in 2002 with a bachelors degree in business administration/public relations.

I've been married to my husband, Josh, for 13 years. He is a high school math teacher and also an adjunct college professor at a local junior college.

I love the Lord and strive to raise my children to honor and love Him as well. I currently attend First Church of God, and I'm excited to see what God has in store for me and where He will have me serve in the ministries there.

As for my blog, Simply Chrissy (formerly Traveling Light) - I began writing as a way to journal my daily happenings. It then turned into a way for me to feel like I was utilizing my abilities for something bigger. I do feel like there are times when God speaks to me, and through conveying those thoughts and convictions, others can be uplifted to. And I think that's a great thing.

Sometimes I'm serious. Sometimes I'm lighthearted. Sometimes I cover a spiritual issue. Sometimes it's about weight loss. I like to talk about my kids and family, but other times I like to just talk about the St. Louis Cardinals! :)

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you'll come back often!
