We find the courage to endure as we sift our chaos through God's character.

Christine is a wife, mother of three, the author of Clean Home, Messy Heart: Promises of Renewal, Hope, and Change for Overwhelmed Moms Help! My Teen is Depressed, as well as the host of IBCD's Hope + Help Podcast.

She has completed certificates in Biblical Counseling through the Institute of Biblical Counseling and Discipleship (IBCD) and is presently in the process of obtaining certification through the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors (ACBC).

Her writing has been featured at websites such as Desiring God, The Gospel CoalitionRisen MotherhoodServants of Grace, Devotable, and served two years as a contributing writer at Thrive Moms. Christine has previously served the local church as a communications lead, equip women's workshop developer and teacher, women's conference speaker, and leadership team member. She has also volunteered as a Care Coach for JC Cares, a local non-profit that offers free biblical counseling services to the economically disadvantaged in her community.

Christine is passionate about advocating for biblical one-another care and discipleship in the local church. Her heart for ministry stems from being previously treated for bipolar disorder II, depression, panic attacks, disordered eating, suicidal ideations, and self-injurious behaviors.

At the age of 28, two weeks after her father passed away from cancer, the grace of God took hold of her heart and she was converted from atheism to become an eager disciple of Jesus Christ. Part of Christine's life story includes two hospitalizations at mental institutions: one as a teenager and the other as a devoted follower of Christ. By God's sovereign design, these experiences fuel the compassion and sympathy that motivates Christine's work.

She presently resides in South Carolina with her husband of 16 years and their three children and is a member of Trinity Point Church. To learn more about speaking/event booking, please click here.

Audience Reviews
"Christine is not only a solid, loving voice that is needed both inside and outside the church, but a beautifully honest, transparent, and faithful woman with tremendous insight."
"I've been following Christine for many years now and I don't want to miss one single thing that she writes. Both her articles and her books are rich with life wisdom and Biblical wisdom. And she puts the two together fantastically while being so vulnerable about her own life."
"Christine’s writing really speaks to me. I can tell she writes from the perspective of someone who has been there. The thing I appreciate the most is that her writing is so biblically-based. It is full of scripture and hope. Could not recommend her more."
"Christine takes us right to the source of living water and she doesn’t just say 'there it is now go drink up'...but she takes the time to first, make sure we know how desperate our thirst is, then she takes the time to really show us how to drink and how to trust the promise that Jesus and only Jesus can satisfy the deepest longing of our messy hearts."
"Christine has such a wonderful way of putting into words what most of us moms feel on a daily basis, and her willingness to open up about her daily struggles is such a rare and beautiful thing that more of us moms need."
"Christine understands how it feels to be a mom who falls short of her own expectations yet remembers to fall back on God’s grace to handle what comes each day."


"Christine paints a picture of everyday moments we have all faced and fills them with God glorifying truths leading us back to the word and the cross."

Statement of Faith: Nicene Creed

I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, begotten from the Father before all ages, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made; of the same essence as the Father. Through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven; he became incarnate by the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary, and was made human. He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate; he suffered and was buried. The third day he rose again, according to the Scriptures. He ascended to heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will never end. And I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life. He proceeds from the Father and the Son, and with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified. He spoke through the prophets. I believe in one holy catholic* and apostolic church. I affirm one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. I look forward to the resurrection of the dead, and to life in the world to come. Amen.

*That is, the true Christian church of all times and all places. Read: universal.
