  • Ep 15: Faith & Encouragement- The Ministry of You

    On today’s episode Kristin talks about the Ministry of You or another way to put that is the ministry of your life. She wants to remind each of us that how you choose to show up and encourage others, how you choose to share love and hope, how you choose to be a example of Christ in the world and how we choose to build a legacy and impact in the world with our words, our money and message matters and we don’t have to be a pastor, or in a formal ministry or even call it a ministry or some other churchy word but our life is a ministry- the question becomes as we grow in our faith journey are we an outreach for Jesus’ ministry or are we building a ministry for something else?
