Faith-Based Organizations

For decades, Kristi stepped off a water ski dock and said “hit it” to a boat driver. Yet for many years, she remained comfortably settled on a spiritual dock where she refused to say “hit it” to God, the only Power Source that would never fail her. When she finally stepped out of her comfortable place, Kristi traded temporal worldly victories for the true eternal victories that a relationship with God provides. Kristi’s testimony of God’s faithfulness in her life will encourage and equip your congregation to:

• Connect to God, the ultimate Power Source

• Step off spiritual docks and say “hit it!” to God

• Identify alternative power sources

• Overcome defeat and disappointments

• Navigate obstacles

• Understand identity and worth

• Move past perfectionism and people-pleasing

• Identify and ignite God-given passions

• Make waves for God

Prisons/Rehab Institutions

In her thirty-five-year career, Kristi fell every day. Yet in the midst of her falls, she became one of the most decorated women water skiers of all times. Through her experiences on the water and in life, Kristi learned the valuable truth that falls don’t prevent victory. Instead, it’s how one responds to the fall that determines the outcome. As a water skier, Kristi learned the value of being committed to saying “hit it!” to the power source and learning from her mistakes. Kristi takes her life lessons and combines them with her faith to bring a powerful message entitled, “Hit it!” to inmates across the country. Her message of second chances inspires inmates to say “hit it!” to the Power Source that will never fail them and then equips them with the tools to experience a victorious life, even behind bars. Her message encourages and equips inmates to:

  • Comprehend the unconditional love of God

  • Move past failure and defeat

  • Discover worth and identity

  • Live a life of influence and impact

  • Cast off deadly emotions such as fear, anger, guilt, shame, and bitterness

  • Grow in their Christian faith

  • Build and restore relationships
