I grew up in the church and with God's word. At the tender age of 8 years old, I experienced my first encounter with the Holy Spirit as I was moved to tears and led by something I could not see to get out of my pew, walk down to the altar, and give my life to Jesus.
I'd love to tell you that I stayed on the straight and narrow path of righteousness from that point on, but that just isn't true.
I've been on the path and off the path...and way off the path. But I always found comfort in God's word. Recalling a verse I'd memorized or being in an occasional Bible Study would bring me a sense of stillness in times when my life was anything but still.
I knew the Bible was an instruction manual for Christians, but I wasn't spending meaningful time in God's word. As a result, I was frustrated at work, in my marriage, and with myself. I'd lost my identity to what I thought everyone else wanted me to be, and I didn't know who I was anymore.
That's when the Spirit touched me again, and reminded me that the answers I was so desperately seeking were all waiting for me to find them in God's word.
How you should handle yourself, your job, family, relationships, when people wrong you...every human situation...the answer to the issue is right there in the Word.
That’s when I knew I was supposed to be teaching the Word of God, and thus, Crystal Freie Ministries was born.
I am so passionate about helping you discover who you are, and now we’ll take a journey together to discover who you are in Christ Jesus.
My goal is to empower you to answer the call God has placed on your life, so you can walk in your purpose and find sustained fulfillment and joy in your life.
I'm starting this ministry with exactly what God is leading me to do - teach His word to those who have ears to hear. Right now, that looks like weekly videos where we walk through the Word, verse by verse, to better understand what it says and what it means to us.
My goal is to provide you with practical application of life's ultimate instruction manual.
You can check out the first series here: Unpacking and Applying the Book of Ephesians.
As more series are developed, they will be added to this YouTube channel, so go ahead and subscribe so you don't miss any!
In the latest A Walk Through the Word video series, we're digging into Matthew 14:22-33 and what we can learn from this passage about fear, faith, focus, and freedom.
Just remember, if you want to walk on water, you've got to get out of the boat!
