Through her healing journey, God has restored her joy and called her to use her experiences and trauma-informed education to serve others who are walking on a similar path. Learning to live from a place of rest, Kristen is enjoying working toward becoming a trauma therapist through her master’s program, connecting with God, and finding any quiet space she can in her busy household of 8.
