Companion Series: Kristin


This is my friend Kristin. Kristin has beautiful dark brown hair and gorgeous olive skin. I met Kristin about 6 months ago at the Antone. Kristin and I spent an afternoon out on the boat dock sharing with each other what the Lord was teaching us. It was that afternoon that I knew I had found a kindred spirit. The ease of our conversation, and her ability to relate to me made it so I let her in easily. I don't always open up right away with people, but Kristin gave me an immediate ease and I knew she was a woman to be trusted. The past 6 months Kristin has been a constant companion and someone I look up to. She has bravery, boldness, sweetness and sass. She speaks freely and honestly with a heart of passion and of elegance. She cares deeply for the relationships in her life and she cares deeply for the poor, the widow and the orphan. Kristin has her eyes set on changing the world, and right now that looks like one cup of coffee at a time with me. See Kristin isn't only a loyal friend, but she is a co-manager with me at Well & Good. As we are growing in our friendship and learning new things about one another I truly believe she is sharpening me. I value Kristin's opinion and I love having deep meaningful conversations with this woman. She asks great questions to get to know you, and she affirms you with her compliments. She has shown me many acts of kindness that have blessed me in tremendous ways. I get to laugh with this woman, wipe down dirty tables with this woman, and grow deeper in love with Jesus with this woman. Man am I blessed.


As of late I think the two of us have learned a lot about one another. We are figuring out how we work in high stress situations, and how to problem solve. We have seen each other in some not so pretty moments, but I know I'm not going anywhere if you aren't?! Thank you for showing me kindness, patience and the ability to be bold. I strive to be as beautiful on the inside as your heart already is. Your pursuit of Christ is inspiring and daring, and I envy these characteristics in you. I have so loved getting to know your heart these past 6 months, and I look forward to learning more about you. I am so grateful you are the one I get to work with at Well & Good, and that you are part of my community. Getting to serve Christ with you and pray for the Tigard community with you is an honor and I am so glad you are the one I am sharing it with. Love you babe!

Love Kate
