Krista Leigh Smith

be creative and intentional with your life

Hey!  I'm Krista.  Wife to my bestie for 20 years.  Mom to two amazing teenagers.  Cat snuggler & dog walker.  Gym rat.  Runner.  Artist. Bliss seeker.  Book reader.  

I love Jesus.  I see the beauty and value in other religions.  I feel most at home in nature and believe in the idea of an evolving, wild universe.  My favorite teacher is Richard Rohr.  My favorite talks are about science & faith.

I accept and affirm EVERYONE.  I want people to feel celebrated and seen. I'm quiet and introverted, but my heart is open and I seek to learn from others.  

I believe in creativity.  In sacred spaces.  In empathy and kindness.  In fierceness and being untamed. I believe in equality.  In the power of women.  In considering new ideas.  In being uncomfortable with change but still embracing it.  

My favorite thing is being a parent.  My hope is to leave the world better than I found it, and I think our two kids are by far my best shot at that.  

I hope to grow old surrounded by my very favorite people, maybe in a tiny house in the middle of a desert.  Or, I'll stay in New Jersey and enjoy the ocean and sand. I hope life is never short on adventure, that I always appreciate an ordinary day, and that I always feel this heavy gratitude for the beauty that saturates my life.
