My name is Kristy. I was nicknamed “Warrior Princess” during a life changing experience called T.C.P.T. It was during this experience that I learned I was capable of doing more than I could have ever imagined.. I am a youth director at a Christian church and firmly believe I would wither away, if I wasn’t given the opportunity to teach, love and encourage children and youth on a regular basis. I enjoy laughing, singing, cooking, baking, playing guitar, watching movies, playing games, writing, and watching sports (especially basketball-high school girls and football-the Green Bay Packers). I have an identical twin sister and two younger brothers, as well as three nieces and a nephew whom I adore. I sponsor two children from Rwanda, Africa, another child from Kenya, Africa through Compassion, and I have two black toy schnauzers who I consider my own children. My family has a history of obesity, diabetes and heart disease and now that I am in my mid-thirties, the reality that I am well on my way to keeping with this deadly family tradition, I am trying everything I can to stop this unhealthy cycle. I competed in my first triathlon in May of 2011, and continue to train and compete in triathlons (swim, bike run), dualthons (run, bike, run) and 5ks. While I remain active and enjoy exercising, I struggle with a food addiction. You may also soon discover that I have very random thoughts, but, I am driven and compassionate and it is my prayer that this blog would bring you inspiration, encouragement and oodles of laughter.
