What’s so great about being Kristi Bridges?

Hanging out with the fabulous peeps who AREN’T Kristi Bridges!

This month, you have two opportunities to enjoy them with me.

Saturday, March 14, from 1-3 pm, come to the new Tokyo Garden South on 108th and Memorial in Bixby, OK. I’ll be reading along with 5 other authors from several genres. Enjoy an entertaining afternoon and grab something to read during the April showers. If you’d like help writing your own book, you can pick our brains. If you prefer something tastier, order sushi and leave our brains intact.

Saturday, March 28, from 9:30-11:30 am, join me for the Shift 88 women’s group at Plumbline Ministries. I’ve designed a sensory, interactive experience to bring out the power in your personal stories.

I’ll see you there!

Read a Book a Week? Write Your Own!

It’s About Time to write your novel!


Happy New Year! Are you one of the millions of people who vowed to read a book a week this year? That’s 52 weeks of other people’s thoughts. Your life is already full of other people’s news and needs. 52 books to read?

Listen—do you hear that? That is your voice, calling from under the pile of other people’s pages. Your voice says, “YO! It’s my turn!” Yes, your voice said, “Yo.” Has it ever done that before? Bet it got your attention.

You have your own ideas, and it’s about time you wrote your own book. I’ll help, along with my friend and fellow author, Sarah Soon. We began with an idea-grabbing session in December, and next Saturday, we’ll help you captivate your readers with description, action and dialogue. Come to the workshop and get a free book planner which will track your progress all the way to the book launch party!

A Rose in Bloom

Invitation 2

For years, I devoted my energy to writing songs. I love music and hope to never stop, but I wanted more. I wanted to speak as well as sing, and two years ago I introduced myself to a woman who had spoken at a conference and said, “I’d like to be where you are in a couple of years.” God knows what He’s saying. The words I spoke as a wish turned out to be God speaking my future. I had no idea how I would ever do a conference, and I honestly didn’t do anything about it. That fall, I went to a writer’s conference and met my wonderful friend, author of Red Sea Situations and the self-care course The Rhythm-Conscious Life, counselor Jennifer Owens. She and I began our podcast, “The AHA Moment” on Soundcloud. The first couple of posts were slow to start, but it has become terrific fun, and I look forward to every session. Jennifer decided to join Toastmasters, so I went with her and met the biggest bunch of go-getters I’ve ever known. Then God gave me a position as a corporate trainer, where for 8 hours a day, I get to work out any kinks in my presentation skills. I love the way God works steadily to fulfil His purposes in us.


I think the devil saw it coming, because I was on the verge of signing over all my free time to go to school. School is great, but I cried the night I completed the college application. I knew something was going on, but I didn’t know what and I thought it was just me.

Two weeks before school was to start, God showed His hand.

I was invited to not only speak, but to collaborate on building the conference Jennifer and I had dreamed of. God is amazing.

In two months, on April 1 and 2, Jennifer, myself, and our amazing mentor and businesswoman extraordinaire Kim White will be hosting A Rose in Bloom at the Hyatt Place in Tulsa, OK. My friend Justin from Goliath Down will be performing with me on Friday night, and Jennifer, Kim and I will be speaking on Saturday. Although I fully intend to do conferences for both men and women in the future, the April conference is open to the ladies. We’ll focus on helping women connect with God and with themselves on a deeper level. God makes us wild and beautiful, but with a little cultivation and nurturing, we can reach our fullest bloom.

Tickets ~ $97 (is it worth it? oh yeeeeeeah, girlie!)


  • Friday night 7:30-9pm We’ll have music and hang-out time
