Kristi Stoughton is a native of New Hampshire, where she currently resides with her husband Brian in a little lakeside cottage. They take great joy in their two sons, daughter-in-law, and baby granddaughter.

As a speaker for Christian events, Kristi has a passion for people to know God’s love deeply. She loves to share about the joyful, exciting, heartbreaking, beautiful, victorious, rollicking adventure that is Life in Christ!

This ministry blossomed out of her career in the secular business world, where she had extensive presentation experience as a speaker for nationwide events. The success of these experiences made Kristi long to be investing her energies in something more lasting, something that would help people get closer to God. God answered her prayers and used these business-world experiences as stepping stones in preparation for a Christian speaking ministry.

One of her heart scriptures is Ephesians 3:17-19:

“And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”
