    Called on Purpose

    Monday, June 26, 2023

    I would like to recommend a devotional today written by one of our Confidante admins, Christy Kirtlan, “Called on Purpose.”

    These two-minute devotionals will be an encouragement to you as well some humor added for your day. Here is a little about Christy:

    “I’m not Beth. I’m not Priscilla or Lysa or Jen or Chrystal. I’m not a professional speaker or writer. But I am passionate about your walk with Jesus!

    I’m just Christy, a girl from Ohio trying to take the mistakes, missteps, and lessons from my past and bring them to Jesus to make something out of them that will glorify Him.

    I hope you find this book a little funny, very relatable, inspiring, and draws you closer to Jesus. The Bible tells us that each of us are called by God for His purpose, and each of us has a unique purpose identified by Him. It’s no accident that we are here, and we are not to bounce aimlessly through life like a pinball in an arcade game. I pray you hear your calling and find your purpose that the Lord Jesus Christ has for you!

    Christy Kirtlan is a pastor’s wife, serving alongside her husband for 25 years, a speaker for women’s ministries and a Bible teacher. A mother of four adult daughters and “Gogo” to nine beautiful grandchildren. Christy lives with Stan in a small town in Ohio, enjoys being with her family, discipling women and bass fishing.”

    I know you will find this devotional inspiring and relatable as a pastor’s wife. You can order this devotional on Amazon.
