Welcome to Sincerely Christi!!

Hi, Friend!!

I am Christi, the author of Sincerely Christi and I am so excited to share my personal faith-based journey blog with you!  You can find my most recent posts are under My Faith-Filled Journey Blog, as well as in a slider at the bottom of this page.

As a Life and Relationship Coach, I want to help you overcome and thrive in this beautiful life that God has blessed you with. Whether fear, hurt, grief, or relationship issues stop you from living an abundant life, I want to help you find the hope and perseverance you need to step into the life He created you for.


Overcome & Thrive


You will also find my testimony and how my faith grew through a heartbreaking loss and how the Lord used that hurt for good. If you are interested in that series, it’s called My Story of Faith Through the Loss of My Firstborn Son.

Overall, I hope my writing can be a source of encouragement when you need one, and motivation to never give up no matter the circumstance you find yourself in.

I have a wonderful Resource Library full of all kinds of helpful things, and I want you to have it all FREE!

I’ve created several printables in the self-help category such as:

  • the fear/faith journal page so you can get past your fears and walk in faith
  • the Love evaluation that will help you love others according to 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
  • the first 2 chapters of my book entitled Your Marriage Retreat: 7 Date Nights to a Thriving Marriage
  • decorative scripture printables
  • several lists of my favorite Christian books on Amazon,
  • a growing directory of my favorite Christian bloggers (COMING SOON),
  • and so much more.

And guess what???

I am continually adding to it so you will want to keep it bookmarked so you can refer to it as needed.

Of course, I’ll send you an email when anything new is added to keep you updated.

Just one click takes you to the topic of your choice!
