My name is Christy. Not short for anything, that is my full name. Christy means “believer in Christ,” something I try to live into every day through my marriage of sixteen years, in my mothering and homeschooling of my eight children, in my over twenty-five years of teaching piano, and now in writing. I am passionate about my relationships: with Jesus, my family, and my friends. I have a deep love for people and enjoy meeting new friends from all walks of life. I have always been purposeful, and as I have journeyed further through life I have learned, (and am still learning) how to be filled with grace while pursuing my purpose.
