Welcome to my Journal Welcome to my little tiny safe haven! This is a place where I share my heart. Where I share the nitty-gritty tough stuff as well as the beauty of living in His daily grace. If you love “realness”, talking about Jesus, are inspired by hearing what God is doing even in the midst of the mundane, unknown & difficult times, you’ve come to the right place!

How Delight & Be came to be. . . part II

  • Heather C. - Love this peek into your family. I’m anxiously awaiting your post on effective discipline strategies. The spatula from the womb sounds just like my Caroline and i’m secretly making plans to help her open “Sweet Caroline’s Cafe” sometime years from now if she’s not scarred by the spatula before then.ReplyCancel

    • kristinwall - Hahahaha!!!! Yes, I will share at some point because I truly believe all children are wired differently. . .and what works for one might not work for the other! All four of mine responding differently! I can’t wait to meet you in person someday! And will be praying for Caroline and her God-given passions!!! My prayer is our Culinary Arts Intensive group will be going super strong by the time she’s old enough to enjoy it!ReplyCancel

Hitting the click button is my equivalent to climbing Mt. Everest

I’m terrified. Yes, I said it. . . I’ve been genuinely paralyzed and haven’t been able to bring myself to launch my new website and blog.

How Delight & Be Came to Be…part 1

I get asked often how I ended up running a “non-profit” ministry focused on teen girls.  And typically I respond with the  “elevator talk.”  You know, the short few sentences that wrap it up into a sweet little package. But, since I have a blog now and because I want people to understand that God…
