Speaking Topics

  • Most of us want to hear God speak to us clearly. We desire His guidance and direction so that we can live with purpose, passion, and power. But what should we do to best position ourselves to hear Him when he calls? In this session, Chrystal will show you how to:

    • Position yourself to hear from God.
    • Discern God’s leading.
    • Respond appropriately to His call.
  • Are your efforts to be the perfect person robbing you of the peace, purpose and fulfillment that you sense should be yours? Are you worn out trying to keep up with the goals you set or the amount of things on your “to do” list? Chrystal, a recovering perfectionist herself, is learning everyday how to live with loose ends. In this personal and practical session, Chrystal will share how you can:

    • Find your way out of perfectionist thinking.
    • Release unrealistic expectations for yourself and others.
    • Enter into a life of balance and joy.
  • Do you find that the demands of getting dinner on the table, chauffeuring your children around, and supporting your husband leave you frazzled? Maybe you are overwhelmed with deadlines at work, keeping your business affairs in order at home, and controlling your calendar. Chrystal is right there with you in the fight for an even-keeled life. She understands the pressures and demands on today’s woman and has learned a thing or two about finding her footing in the middle of a fast-paced world. In the session you will be encouraged to:

    • Rest in the Lord for His provision of power to do all that He’s called you to do.
    • Recharge your heart and your head for the life you live everyday.
    • Renew or redefine your priorities based on the leading of the Holy Spirit.
  • We all want to know why we are here on this earth and know God’s plan for our lives. But then life happens. On the road to destiny, there are distractions or difficulties. Our own emotions, mindset, and even our community of friends or family can derail us from arriving at our desired destination. Through powerful biblical teaching and practical life applications, Chrystal will show you how to:

    • Recognize obstacles designed to block your progress.
    • Resist voices of distraction that are vying for your attention.
    • Pinpoint strategies for overcoming hindrances to your journey.
  • No matter how defeated, discouraged, or overwhelmed your past or current circumstances, meeting with Jesus changes everything.

What happens when we are honest with God about where we’ve been and how our hopes and dreams have disappointed Join Chrystal on a study of Luke 24 for inspiration and encouragement to:

    • Receive God’s readily available redeeming grace.
