Start Here @ Kristy's Cottage blog

Hi there, I'm Kristy!

Welcome to my beautiful online home- my "cottage," as I call it.

I'm probably a lot like you: I want to wake up every morning with energy and motivation to live and love well.

A little about me personally: I'm married to a pastor and I homeschool our five growing kids... those roles are my top priorities!

In the margins of my busy days, I've been writing and working from home since 2007... this website is the result of simply sharing what I'm learning with other women who have the same passions for life that I do.

What I'm here for: to help you along your journey in living a whole and healthy life as a Christian woman.

Okay, here we go!  You can...

1. Subscribe by Email

I send out a weekly mentoring email (Friday mornings @8 CST), and that's it.  

My Weekend Reads email is less of a blog recap, and more like a conversation over a cup of tea. 

I keep it simple, focused, and personal.  

Weekend Reads is also subscriber-only content, so if it sounds useful to you please opt in below!

3 Reasons You Might Need to Read Say Goodbye to Survival Mode, by Crystal Paine | Kristy's Cottage blog

I Confess: I Dearly Love Books!

A wise mentor advised me many years ago, Kristy, read something inspiring for at least five minutes every day. 

I believe this habit has shaped my life for the better!

I'm pretty much always reading a book or three, and the ones I really love make the cut for a review here on the blog.

Here's a peek at my growing online library:


Thanks so much for visiting here, please make yourself at home here at my cottage.  I'd be delighted to come along beside you, so let's connect!
