krista hengesh  A lover of Jesus, others, ideas, and playing with the hypothetical ••• Founder of @LiveSalted // Raised in the PNW 🌲 📍: BEND

To say we had fun would be an understatement. To say we even got an hour of rest would be an overstatement. BUT to say we experienced the God of fun, freedom, joy, and love would be nothing more or less than the TRUTH. These girls, the #gigglegang, know how to make the most out of life + now they know a little more about what it looks like to have that fun running alongside Jesus!! PS. I feel like I found myself 10 new little sisters... I love you girls. #creekside #howdyhowdy #connor #rollcall #malibuloogawhales

“God is not a human, but a person. He is a relational being not an energy force out in the universe, or a doctrine in a systematic theological text book, or an idea in your head. He is a person, a relational being, who wants to relate to you. Who wants to know and BE KNOWN by you. Who wants to call you by name and BE CALLED by name. His posture is one of wanting to relate to you… that is mind blowing” - @johnmarkcomer (taken from @anniefdowns podcast- if you have a chance give it a listen! #thatsoundsfunpodcast #Godhasaname

I say we are pretty fun roommates if you ask me ⚡️💪🏼••• Mama and I biked 50 miles today on the Tour de Chutes ride, took some long MUCH NEEDED naps, made nachos then danced our hearts out to a Journey cover band in DT Bend. Living here is a dream and being able to do life with you makes it so much better. Love you @lindahengesh 💕💕

Transitions are hard. Who likes to be in between and once was + a now what? •• It has been just over a month since I left NZ, and these past 4 weeks have been a rollercoaster. I believe we have an enemy who knows how vulnerable we are in these times of change, and prowls around waiting for an opportunity to tear us down. Going into the third season of @livesalted and life back in Bend, I think the enemy found his perfect opportunity. We must remember that we are fighting "against rulers, against the authorities, + against the powers of this dark world" (Eph 6:12) that are working to throw us off our God-given call each and everyday. However, we ALSO get to remember that "we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us" (Rom 8:37)!! Remember that, and fight the good fight today joyfully- God has blessings for us around each corner!

God knew I would need a moment and breathe of space before jumping back into life in America, and He really out did Himself with making that place Malibu. 😊 PSA: If you ever get the chance to go there.... GO! It is quiet possibly where Heaven and earth tangibly collide. #malibuclub #unexpectedblessings

"Walk with me, work with me - watch how I do it." Matthew 11:29 MSG ••• Discipleship is about DOING life with Jesus. It's about being with Him, becoming like Him, and doing what He did, and this weekend I was blessed to go to @yl_malibu_club with over 200 high schoolers to learn more about what discipleship looks like in our everyday lives. I was not expecting much more than to watch over some kiddos, going as the nanny, but OH MY was it so much more than that. Full of children, yes, (+ lots of 💩), BUT ALSO so many unexpected blessings, new friendships, affirmation and confirmation in what's next, chats, Jesus, laughter, and SO much of that beautiful Princess Louisa inlet. Thank you @emilykjamieson and @marshalljamieson for the opportunity- SO stoked for what is next for us ⚡️⚡️⚡️#disciplineship #napcpcpc

"How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard"- Winnie the Pooh ••• I would do anything to relive this day

YOU people have changed my life. Never have I experienced so much joy + so much growth + so many darn emotions. Thank you from the depths of my being for showing me what it is like to be loved purely for who I am and not what I do AND teaching me that feeling allllll the feels is the best way to live. I don't care how cliche this is, but this send off (which will be SO hard to top) truly is just a see you later. Our friendships are rooted in eternity AND... I will be back before you know it 😊Thank you Father for these people. I miss you all so much already XX #loveyouguys #23kilograms #adventurouslyexpectant #indenial

Good concepts, catchy one liners, captivating blog titles and thought provoking posts are great but do they actually change you? Recently I have been blown away by the power of scripture + how what it says literally is the truth + when believed + lived out will transform you. ••• Try this one out -> "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you" -1 Peter 1:3-4 #somuchtruth #liveeternallyminded #lifeeternal

"Savor the moments of sheer happiness like a precious jewel- they come unexpectedly and with an intoxicating thrill." ••• cheeky morning breakfasts

Yeussssss. It was a very good weekend... taking it back to our ferry ride over when I COULD feel my legs + walk normally ••• PSA - taking sleeping bags and a speaker to the top deck at sunset is a very good idea ☺️#reflectionpaul #waihekeisland

That last (STRAIGHT UP) K... I tell you... it was the jet planes that got me through. First (hilly as) half marathon done 💪🏼✔️#13.2 #21.3
