About Kristen

Kristen is a Speaker and an Author 

Headshot43

 

I grew up in Durham, North Carolina and currently live in Charlotte, NC. I attended East Carolina University for undergraduate school and in 2006 I graduated from Appalachian State University with Master of College Student Development. I work in the areas of Christian Education, writing curriculum and speaking at different conferences. I also serve as a minister at Pritchard Memorial Baptist Church in Uptown Charlotte.  

In 2008 I felt God was calling me into ministry and I decided to go back to school. I had the honor and pleasure to study at Campbell University Divinity School and graduated in 2013 with my Master of Divinity in Christian Education. I was also ordained and set apart for ministry June 2012.

Message in a Post started as a daily devotional on Facebook and has grown into a full-time ministry for myself. I love digging into Gods word and writing to help us think, converse, and travel this journey called life TOGETHER! It is my prayer you are blessed, but challenged when reading these devotions and hope I can meet you one day!

On the journey TOGETHER,

“I enjoy reading and allowing Message in a Post to start my day and help me build on my own personal relationship with God. Within each post, I find God’s divine Word with instruction on how I can move beyond just learning His Word, but to knowing His Word, and then, most importantly, to applying His Word. It has become a valuable part of my journey toward Christ.”

-Allyson Keffer

Writing

 
 

Kristen’s journey as an author began in March of 2013. She felt a desire to share her thoughts on Holy Week with her friends on Facebook in a daily post. Those posts provided information and time of reflection in preparation for Easter that year. Kristen stopped posting once Easter Sunday passed, but her new readers encouraged her to continue posting her daily thoughts. Message in a Post was born and she has been writing daily devotions Monday through Friday ever since.

Kristen also writes Adult Sunday School lessons for her Young Professionals Sunday school class. Some of her past writings have included: Teachers’ guides and daily devotions for a series called “Along The Way” published by First Baptist Church Wilmington. In addition, Kristen was featured in “Reflections” magazine, published by Smyth & Helwys fall of 2014.

Breath Prayers

Paul wrote to the Church of the Thessalonians, “Pray Without Ceasing”. This sermon looks at what was going on during this time, and how we can apply this discipline today.

Naomi's Story: A Monologue of Great Sadness

Often times, when exploring the Book of Ruth, we see the commitment of Ruth to her mother-in-law Naomi. However, Naomi dealt with real hurt, pain, tragedy and loss. This monologue sheds light on Naomi’s story, and the beauty of God working all along in such tragedy!

Be Still In A Chaotic World

Tasks, Errands, To-Do list EVERYWHERE!!! How in the world are we supposed to “Be Still” in our crazy, busy lives? This message looks at scripture that helps us to understand Psalm 46:10 “Be still, and know that I am God. I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth!”

 

“It would be hard to imagine starting a week day without Message In a Post. The daily posts take on new meaning for me and inspire me to communicate regularly with God. Message In a Post brings the Bible to life for me and allows me to understand scripture like never before.”

-Brad Reid
