Hello and welcome, sweet friend.
I’m Crystal. Like you I wear a lot of hats in life. I’m an author, watercolor artist, blogger, speaker, and entrepreneur. I’m also a wife to Tim, dog mom to Minnie, friend, daughter, family member, and more. But the most important thing about me is who I am in Christ.
It’s the most important thing about you too. You are a child of the Most High, precious in His sight, fully known and fully loved.
I started CrystalStorms.me (originally called Intentionally Pursuing) because I wanted to live my life with intention and pursue God with all my heart. But an unexpected benefit of pursuing God was finding rest in Christ.
Let the beloved of the LORD rest secure in Him for He shields her all day long, and the one the LORD loves rests between His shoulders.Deuteronomy 33:12
Maybe like me you struggle with feeling empty—looking to what you do, your husband, or social media to make you feel loved and worthy.
I know what it feels like to question if I’m enough. (The truth is I’m not enough, but Christ in me is more than enough.) I’m learning to rest as Christ’s beloved. So I share words and art that encourage your heart so you can rest close to His heart.
- Rest in the security of who you are in Christ.
- Draw close to His heart through His Word.
- Live in unity of heart with your husband.
- Move forward from a place of rest.
I help you find rest close to His heart with words and art that encourage your heart so you can release who you’re not and walk in the truth of who you are in Christ. ♥
One of my favorite places to hangout online is Instagram. You can connect with me there. But the best way to stay connected is through subscribing to my free weekly email. You’ll receive these posts as well as weekly notes filled with encouragement for your heart you won’t find anywhere else. Plus, I’ll also send you Be Still: 5 Days to Heart Rest as a gift from my heart to yours.
