I started this blog in February 2010, and then took a hiatus for a while (6.5 years) and now I’m back. So, let me re-introduce myself, my name is Kristi Hill. I have been married to my high sc
hool sweetheart for 24 years. I have 2 kids, both teenagers. I have a yellow lab who we should have named Marley but chose Lucy instead and I have a cat named Rikki.
I have a wonderful life, a little on the boring side for most but I am the play-it-safe type person. I always have to know what the consequences are to the issues at hand. That’s good in a way but has also held me back many times from stepping out in faith. I have always been too worried about what people think. I am now 45 years old and I realize you just get to a point where you ask yourself “if not now, when?” and then all the other stuff doesn’t matter anymore. I finally found my voice and WOW! I love it!
Let me get you up to date on where I left off many years ago…
I have always had a traditional job, 9-5, and I have always been creative. I like creating and working with my hands. I came to a cross roads in my life in Sept. 2013 and that’s when God gave me the green light to quit my 9-5 job. I spent hours with God, reading the Bible and allowing Him to teach me. He would direct me and I would follow then in April 2014 God put a thought in me about starting my own T-shirt company. That was the next big step. I faithfully accepted the challenge knowing that if He is guiding me it will turn out to be a blessing. After a while of me figuring out how to use my heat press and cutter, all from YouTube videos, I got another step from God, this one was a little fuzzy at first – I got the details wrong but now I’m on the right track. I know that God is encouraging me to make shirts for cancer patients, survivors and family members to help fight for a cure. I know this will bless my business and I will be able to donate lots of money to find a cure for this horrible disease.
Now, I feel the next step is to add blogging to my resume. I have always loved to journal. It’s therapy for me to put all my memories down on paper. The good ones I get to re-live again and it warms my heart. The bad memories I am able to get out of me and onto paper. I can then reflect later on how it changed my life, what God told me to do and if I followed through and how it worked out. It grows my faith when I can see 6 months later that because I listened to God and followed Him this is where I am now. Things don’t always turn out the way I had planned for them to but I’m ok with that because I know if I just do the next thing that God tells me to do then I’m on the track.
This is where I am right now in my journey. I hope to always be changing and growing as God see’s fit. I am willing to follow Him in whatever adventure He has for my life.
