“To anyone considering enrolling…The Change Your Story Workshop is a God ordained appointment for you. It is an opportunity to grow and dig deep in areas you normally avoid due to fear, life, etc.” –Regan
Kirstin nurtures a community of safety and trust in this class that has lasted beyond the Change Your Story Workshop. Her workshop helped guide me, step by step to a closer relationship with God. Kirstin helped me dig beyond negative habits/behaviors to get to the root cause and gave me tools to help me grow. I’ll be revisiting her workbook to continue the work I’ve started for years to come. --Lynn
This has been the most rewarding, unveiling and deepest exposure of my life to a group of people that I have never met before! Becoming more intimate with Christ has taught me to trust and share the pain for what it is. Once I revealed the depth of the pain and its ability to control me, I was lifted and it showed me how to see through the tears. Now, learning that my weakness is not in control, I can continue my walk with God into a boldness I never realized existed, even though I've been praying for boldness. God can become my new addiction!
If you are truly considering looking at your heart from a biblical view, to learn to trust and love, this is a stepping stone to gain that insight. I have been in therapy for years. With my therapist, I had to establish a relationship and that took time. This workshop has shown me that being vulnerable doesn't mean fear or condemnation when we are all looking for forgiveness and direction. You’re not in competition or working to be friends, just sharing. The time was truly amazing, show up, be heard, done. --Karen Garlough July 2023
This workshop was such a blessing and came in my life at the perfect time. I joined because I truly want to be the best version of myself as a mom and to heal from past trauma and this workshop was definitely a blessing and came at a perfect time. –Name withheld
The Change Your Story Workshop is worth every penny, every tear, every rock and hard spot that you get to when you have to face your stuff head on. You have to do the work though, if you don't plan on doing the work then this workshop would not work for you. --Jeanette
Kirstin truly demonstrates respect for all of us and our story and her compassion towards me and my story helped me to finally find the courage to break away from shame and condemnation and to choose freedom. I love the way she is open and vulnerable in sharing your own story because it demonstrates the grace of God in her life and how He did a miracle for her and it makes me see that He can do that for me too. ~Name withheld
Week 2 was so healing and I was able to find “new things to replace “my thing”. I did a column of my “negative thing” eg being impulsive and I realize that I was doing that because I wanted instant gratification which is actually just me having a desire for adventure, so I replaced that with being more self-controlled and planning weekly fun activities and adventures to look forward to. –Name withheld
One of my favorite things about the workshop is hearing other people’s story. These are people of God who are going through life’s issues and struggles and it made me feel like I wasn’t alone in my personal struggles. I felt like I wasn’t a good enough or a strong enough Christian and that’s why I had been going through a lot of challenges. Now I know differently.--Anna
The Change Your Story Workshop helped me to be clear on what has been holding me back. It also helped me to find the grace in my story. --Name withheld
“The Change Your Story Workshop goes deep, helping each person to face the known and unknown, in a way that is loving and supported. This workshop allowed me to think past what I knew to apply the tools that’ll serve my healing journey. I recommend this workshop to EVERYONE because becoming the best version of yourself doesn’t happen when we get the right job, the perfect parent, etc, it happens when we shift our stories to align with God's story about us.” –S
Stop what you are doing once a week for an hour and take this time for you. Not the kids, your spouse, dinner~ whatever. YOU~ you deserve an hour a week to learn more about how God’s word applies to your life on a deeper level and how worth the fight you are, in all areas of your life! While it will call for more than an hour of your time each week, you will find God waiting and yearning to talk with you and listen to all your concerns. The more time you spend with Him the more you will begin to see all He has in store for you and how God wants to use your story to help others. ~Tamara
My fav part of the workshop was week 4 (speaking life), I was in the process of changing my lifestyle schedule to waking up early when we did this and I went from waking up grumpy to waking up declaring that “ I am strong in the Lord” “Greater is he that is in me…”, listening to gratitude soaking etc. I am more attentive to the words I speak and am able to catch negative thoughts faster. --Guy
The camaraderie and having a dialogue with others who are going through the same challenges was key. Everyone has something valuable to contribute. --Brent
I had no idea how much I needed this workshop! There was so much depth to it, and to be honest there were a few weeks that I didn’t do the work. I ended up taking it twice—I was amazed at how different my answers were the second time around. This workshop works!!! --Jake
I highly recommended The Change Your Story Workshop to anyone who is ready to find the grace in their story. This program provides tools and exercise to help you to do deep work, it combines principles of neuroscience to help you rewire your brain and gives hope for permanent change. Thank you so much Kirstin for this valuable workshop, thank you for doing your own hard work so that you can help me to do mine. Cheers! --Name withheld
Kirstin has such a beautiful way of allowing God to work through her journey and struggles that truly are life changing. Life is not always easy, and while God never promises us it will be, He does promise He will be with us through it. And in this workshop His love and promises are very evident through the strength and honesty that comes naturally when we surround ourselves in His word. Kirstin has an incredible heart for God and helping others and her joy and love for people truly shines each week making everyone comfortable and at ease allowing us to dig deeper and be honest with ourselves about what our struggles are and why! For me setting aside the time each week was a challenge, but I quickly found myself excited to meet each week and I am certain if you take The Change Your Story Workshop, you will too!
The flow of the workshop was great. For me personally I will be doing more of week 3 work to rewire my brain. I recommend for myself doing this work more independently. I love the resources at the back of the book also (claiming your identity and the scripture references) I made some cue cards of “my thing and the scriptures to battle it which I will continue to use as reference) –Name withheld
When I signed up I was not sure what to expect, and my 1st class I felt a bit vulnerable but immediate warmed up to the group because it was intimate which made me feel very comfortable. --MJ
I found the workshop to be paced and structured in an optimal way to achieve transformation and awareness of what’s holding me back so that I can create new habits. It is definitely worth the time, and the classes are only one hour a week in group setting, which I also found beneficial to learn and experience camaraderie from the other participants. Kevin
The Change Your Story Workshop was so much more than I expected. Let me clarify~ I expected it to be good… I was not expecting to learn as much about myself as I did… after all, I have been closest to me all my life! ~Steph
“My favorite part of The Change Your Story Workshop was the encouragement I received from Kirstin and the rest of the group. I received confirmation to never give up hope and the best is yet to come.” –Amber
Reviews & Testimonies
Taking this workshop has changed my life and the way I think about myself and my circumstances. I used to think that maybe I would just have to accept certain behaviors of mine because for most of my years I tried to break free from them without success.
But God, through Kirstin and her "Change Your Story" workshop showed up to transform me by renewing my mind. It was my miracle.
Kirstin's manner of teaching, listening, and leading us in our group setting is in such a way that you feel safe to be there and to share difficult things. The way she listens and responds always feels like she is truly listening, values what you say and cares tenderly with her heart. Her energy and enthusiasm is such a pleasure and her storytelling of her life is engrossing.
In addition to acquiring knowledge from Kirstin, I learned from the other people in the group as they shared their backstory. The care and concern for one another in the group was evident as we all listened attentively to one another's struggles. Kirstin would give us time to start "Making Room For Success" (my favorite part). We would be all together online but we would each be working individually out of our workbook while soft classical music played in the background. Then we'd come back together after 10-15minutes and share some of our answers, thoughts, revelations. Every week, I always looked forward to our time together, and to share our progress, whether big or little.
There are so many great aspects of The Change Your Story Workshop and one of them is that once I learned how to break free from what's breaking me in one area, I am able now to apply what I learned to other areas of my life for breakthroughs to change my story.... to freedom, hope and a purposeful life.
I can't say thank you enough to Kirstin for founding this God-ordained workshop. I passionately recommend it!! And I pray The Change Your Story Workshop will be made known to the world, and God will be glorified through it as people learn their purpose and plan for their lives, and have life and have it abundantly, just like Jesus says. ~Angela Delancy 2023
IThe Change Your Story Workshop was a journey I didn't know I needed to go on. When I registered for the workshop, I was curious but I also thought I'd done the healing work and have changed my narrative. However, I quickly realized that healing is a journey. Kirstin did a beautiful job creating an environment for the participants to feel safe. She was vulnerable, open, and transparent about her personal journey, which gave others permission to be vulnerable. The culture of the workshop is collaborative. Kirstin doesn't lead the workshop as a person who has all of the answers. She makes it known that she is learning and healing alongside every person who takes the course. Though she's created this workshop and has been doing the work, she welcomes knowledge from others. As a result, I felt like I was giving and receiving.Each week there was a new assignment that made the journey deeper. This workshop taught me how to apply God's words to my healing process to be reminded that I am worthy and enough because God says so. I am grateful for the experience and happy that this workshop was created. I recommend this work to everyone. It is the gift that keeps on giving. Freedom and joy is available when we change our story.~Dom 2023
How did The Change Your Story Workshop empower?
I am a lot more self-aware. I know how to change my thoughts and center myself. I know how to use scripture to combat negative thoughts and feels. I feel my relationship with God is more intimate because I am more intentional about creating that space. I learned how to create that space through the workshops. ~Jamie

What would you say to someone considering enrolling?
It is a great opportunity to really put yourself first and become more self-aware. To learn critical skills that will help improve your mindset. To learn from others in a space where you won’t be judged and are surrounded with people who are going through similar experiences. I’ve already told my best friend to enroll! It’s GREAT for learning how to TRUST God! Join join join join join! You will be glad you did and thank yourself later! I sure did! ~Jamie
This workshop really helped shift my mindset from Victim to Victory. I was able to change my story by looking back and forgiving myself for past mistakes. Also to look forward by using scripture and practical skills to remind myself of God’s Promise. I know Who I am and Whose I am! The discussions and homework assessments are powerful. If you really lock in and block out the distractions, you will really grow from these sessions. Kirstin is such a dynamic facilitator, her encouraging words and transparency is really refreshing. It’s contagious and really makes you open up and be real about what you are experiencing or been through. I’m going to miss my Saturday classes! -- Myesha
The workshop was thorough! The first few weeks, I want to say up to week 4 or 5 was full of tears and uncovering things but it was a safe space that showed me how to ‘deal and not dwell’ on things and grow my relationship with God! I discovered True Freedom from hurts, hang ups, and bad habits. Join this group! ~ Jasmyn
