For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

Ephesians 6:12 (ESV) 

Kris believes that life is a battle, our enemy is Satan, his goal is to destroy us, and our victory is in Christ alone.  Her life is marked with battles. She battled anorexia, depression, and anxiety as a young woman. In her 30s she battled laryngeal cancer…twice. Each battle brought her closer to the heart of Christ,  solidified her trust in Him, and deepened her desire to share the hope found only in Him.

Over the years, Kris has served in different areas of ministry. She has been a Big Sister with Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Mississippi,  taught Sunday School, lead Children’s worship, spoken to ladies groups and served as the Ladies Ministry Coordinator in her church. During her battle with cancer, she lost her voice and was unable to continue in the ministry roles she’d become comfortable with. God used this time to deepen her desire to share the love of Christ with those He places in her path each day outside of formal ministries. Now she looks for opportunities to share the love of Christ with women where ever she goes, and considers it pure joy to be able to pray with someone in need of Christ’s gentle touch. She believes in the power of mentoring and consistently asks God to send her women to invest in.

Kris is wife to Calvin and Mom to Brian and Izzy.  She enjoys painting and woodworking and shares her day to day struggles and victories on her blog, aptly named “in-the-battle”.

Kris Williams

Kris is a pastor’s wife and working mom of 2 who is passionate about sharing the love of Christ with the women He puts in her path. She says that she is “living, breathing, walking, talking proof that God is very much in the business of radically changing lives.” She will tell you that God completely changed everything about her when she met Jesus Christ. Like many women, she spent most of her life looking for “something” to make her feel secure, fill the emptiness in her heart, and give her life meaning and purpose and she tried lots of “somethings” before embracing the One who would finally quiet her restless soul. Her life is a story of redemption, healing, and restoration and she believes everyone she meets should have the opportunity to meet Christ and choose whether or not to follow Him. She battled Laryngeal cancer in 2009 and again in 2011. While she does not wish to travel that valley a 3rd time, she sees her cancer journey as a gift because it taught her to completely trust and fully lean on Christ. While unable to speak, she discovered the gift of writing and with it an entirely new way to share her love for Christ. Today, she is completely healed and, while she regained the use of her voice, still very much enjoys sharing her love for Christ (and His love for us) through written word.
