About the Author

After living for years in a verbally and physically abusive marriage, Crista summoned up the strength to end that unhealthy relationship. She had just launched their youngest child off to college when she and her husband decided to get divorced. She knew it would be a challenging season, but little did she know what laid ahead. Only three and a half weeks later, Crista suddenly found herself a widow. Her husband had committed suicide. Crista and her children navigated through their grief together and with the help of professional therapists. Because she had been a stay-at-home mom for most of her marriage, she found herself completely unprepared and overwhelmed for what life had now presented her. However, Crista did not sit idle. She began reclaiming her life one step at a time. She started tackling the tough stuff and now she helps others do the same.
