hello, allow me to introduce myself..


my name is Crystal and i've been singing/writing/recording/performing music and songs about faith and and my Heavenly Father for almost 30 years.  i'm a Jesus-lover, wife {25 years as of April 2014!}, mother {to Isabella 18, Solomon 20, and mother-in-love to Bethanne 23}, sister, daughter, friend, auntie, fashion-obsessed, horse-crazy musician raised in California, living in Montana, loving every minute of it all.

i often feel as though i live in a constant state of contradiction, as half of my time is spent jumping between trips on airplanes to sing in big cities and stall-mucking/horse-riding days on the ranch.  one weekend i may perform in front of thousands of people while wearing sky-high heels and the next i may find myself in cowboy boots giving an intimate performance to an audience of 1 cat, 2 dogs and 3 horses.

my constant is God the creator of Heaven and Earth and the gift of music he has put in my heart. that, and my precious husband and kids. they keep my head and heart firmly grounded in reality.

this blog is where i chronicle my adventures through the chaos and contradictions, the joys of the journey and the lessons learned.

i hope you'll take a look around. here are a couple of posts to get you started:
