About Krissy Nelson

Hello. My name is Kristen Nelson but most people call me Krissy. I am a wife, a mother of two, a woman of faith and a writer. This blog is dedicated to moms. As a mother there are many times when I feel like I am the only person in the world experiencing the various emotions and situations I encounter each day. This feeling of isolation was particularly heightened in the weeks immediately after I had my first baby and then again upon returning to work. During that time I tried to soak up every bit of encouragement that was offered to me, while quietly longing that one day I would be able to encourage others. My desire is that by reading about the many twists and turns of my journey you will be able to find hope in yours. You are not alone!
