Ready to accompany YOU on your journey with Jesus!
When Christina isn’t busy with her teens, playing with her dogs, or teaching at the local elementary school she is partnering with Heidi Bylsma-Epperson in all things Thin Within. Christina has coached groups with Heidi for seven years, coaches in the Inner Circle through videos, written posts and zoom trainings, has supported the creating of curriculum through writing and editing and was recently one of the speakers in the Hungry Heart Masterclass Series. She calls herself “God’s girl” and has found a life of freedom and lasting transformation through mind renewal - thinking God’s thoughts after Him - in a variety of creative and meaningful ways throughout each day. Christina’s intimate walk with the Lord shines through her joyful and humble spirit. She is excited to offer one on one coaching for the very first time!
Schedule a discovery call (these are free) to see if you and Christina are a good fit. These are 45-60 minutes long and she can share with you if she thinks she can help you experience a breakthrough you might be hoping for and/or share with you what she might recommend. (This is not a "sales call." There is no pressure to sign up for coaching!)
The Lord is good to her, and His tender mercies are over all his works.
The Lord directs the steps of His beloved, chosen girl. He delights in every detail
of her life.
Each day the Lord pours His unfailing love upon her, and through each night she sings His songs.
How precious to her are God’s thoughts! How vast is the sum of them!
With Your very own hands You formed her, now breathe Your wisdom over her, Your precious daughter.
What people are saying about Christina...
I was looking for something to get me over the hump of start-stop-start-stop………I needed more personalized help, motivation and accountability. In coaching with Christina I have found motivation, personal care, someone who looks at me uniquely, grace, modeling, teaching, accountability, friendship, and love! Christina has helped me with noticing my own emotions, rather than just those of everyone else, and to look at what’s going on underneath. I am seeing spiritual changes in the form of even more closeness and maturing in the Lord. I was surprised by how much I was in need of someone to care for me and coach me with grace, tenderness and unconditional love. I have really enjoyed praying scripture together, but I’ve loved all the tools and the workbook. I also very much appreciate Christina’s prayers for me, as well as her great encouragement and affirmation (my love language). It is helpful when Christina sends me questions and little assignments as well, and when she sends me examples of her own truth lists and prayers!
Christina has given me so many tools to help me, and in so many different ways the Lord has shown me that He loves me and He is enough. Many times I would just read the Bible and not really let it sink in. I’ve been given so many mind renewal tools and strategies that I feel I’m handling many different things so much better. I’m experiencing so much more peace and joy and changing my focus from only being on weight loss to actually wanting emotional and spiritual change. I loved going over new and old renewing the mind tools! Especially, “on-the-fly” tools, which I can use anywhere in my busy office. We prayed for each other and texted back and forth. I love the voice messages from Christina that I can replay. Our time together has been such a blessing to me, and I have come so much further than I thought I would! Christina has provided me with so many resources that I have saved in my computer and phone. At this time, I truly believe I am well on my way to a more enriched, deep relationship with Christ without the overbearing thoughts of my body and weight loss. My life has been forever changed! I feel I am ready to branch out on my own, using the resources Christina has provided.
I can attest to coaching with Christina being life-changing for me and worth every single penny. My walk with Jesus is sweeter and I’ve released bitterness and unforgiveness under Christina’s loving and wise counsel. The victories are numerous. I thank God for using Christina to help my healing process. In Christina I have a true forever friend that I completely 100% trust. I have a realization that this will be a journey with ebbs & flows and that God & I have a lot of work to do. I now realize how often I push God aside when I want to do my own desires and do not submit to His will nearly as often as I think I do. I am more conscious about what I’m putting into my mouth, have stopped bingeing, and God and I are closer in a much more honest & healthy way. With Christina I talked through daily life struggles and discussed options to overcome. I learned that I am not alone in my struggles, how my past impacts my choices and decisions, and being honest with Christina has made me have to be honest with myself and face hard things. Christina and I traded messages of hope. She helped me to be encouraged and to focus on my journey giving me hope & truth during the week. Christina truly believes and lives out what she coaches.
Christina has a beautiful sweet spirit about her and that is so encouraging! I love when she and I pray through scripture and I also appreciate the many mind renewal tools that we share. I have definitely found encouragement and our calls certainly help with accountability. Our calls help me keep focused on the Lord and what he is doing. Honestly the work has mostly been internal at this point. During my time with Christina I have gone deeper emotionally with my food issues. Working through them is not easy, but God’s mercy and kindness has been with me. I have also had more purposeful time with the Lord since joining the fresh wind fresh desire group earlier this year than I have in a very long time! It has been a game changer for me spiritually! I love Christina’s encouraging messages to me! And knowing that she is praying for me means so much.
If you’re looking for a great way to start Thin Within, or a way to step into a more solid foundation Christina is a wonderful coach! Christina has a genuine, giant heart for Jesus that she is able to share in very practical ways. She has been in the trenches and can help translate struggles into victories. Her mind renewal tips for even the busiest of people are invaluable. She has a kind, warm, generous heart and I am proud and thankful to call her friend.
If you are on the fence about doing one-on-one coaching with Christina, unsure if it will really be worth the investment, I'd like to share a few thoughts – truths about her – that will help you hop off that fence and into the beautiful, safe pasture of coaching with Christina. Christina operates in such grace and handles hearts with such tenderness. Christina is completely transparent about her own journey, which will make you feel completely at ease and at home with her. Christina operates in wisdom from having walked this path herself, so anything you share with her is in good hands and will receive the utmost in the Lord's wisdom. Christina truly and deeply loves people, and that certainly include her clients. Christina is actually the perfect person for this job as she has a spirit of wisdom that enables her to reach and touch much further than her own experiences. Christina is truly "walking the walk" with Jesus, and in deeper, sweeter, more real ways than I have ever seen anyone walk in. If you opt to allow Christina into your journey, I am confident that she will help usher you into an even deeper relationship with Jesus and greater freedom with Him!
If you’re feeling alone and stuck about your weight, Christina provides the encouragement, attentiveness, and caring support that may be the key to help you move past feeling lost in overeating and negative body image. It was my experience that Christina faithfully provided through her coaching not only expert knowledge of the Thin Within principles, but also a continual emphasis through her coaching calls and supportive emails that the source of our strength in the battle against any stronghold is a firm foundation in Jesus Christ. I highly recommend Coach Christina!
Words can’t describe how amazing Christina is! She is an amazing sister in Christ! Christina has such a beautiful heart for God! It is so beautiful how she constantly seeks Him! She has such a loving heart and is so encouraging too! She definitely has the gift of encouraging others! In the time I have known her she has encouraged me so many times! I feel encouraged every time I talk to her and when I read her messages! She points you to what truly matters. Our relationship with Christ. She lives by example! She has such a gift of mind renewal. She does a wonderful job coaching others different mind renewal tools. In my Thin Within journey I realized how much I need to rely on God to recover from my eating disorder. Christina will often talk about how she constantly needs to renew her mind through out the day. This is an example about how she lives by example! I realized in my own life that I can’t do it on my own. When I try to do it on my own, I end up failing. If I renew my mind through out the day, my day goes a lot better! We need God not just in our quiet time in the morning but through out the day! When we are full in Christ, we don’t go to food for comfort. Food stays in its proper place. Christina teaches you how to do that. She has so many wonderful strategies! I wanted to work with her so I could learn how to better do this. I learned from her that renewing your mind can be done is so many ways and how it can fit in your busy schedule. She has really helped me in so many ways! More than I can say in this little paragraph! Her wonderful beautiful heart has really touched my life!
