So that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
Meaningful relationships are built with time and trust. Here are a few of the amazing women I love being apart of their lives and stories.
“I met Christie at the end of my sophomore year of college and she started discipling me then. Now I am a senior and consider her not just a great mentor, but also one of my best friends. I can come to her for anything and tell her anything. Christie has taught me so much and encouraged me. Even when I went abroad in Spain for a semester, Christie stayed in contact with me and continued to help me stay strong in my faith. Christie is always so prepared for our meetings and speaks truth and wisdom to me whether with great words, or certain worksheets that help make sense of what I am going through. It’s been a blessing to have Christie in my life throughout my time at TCU.”

"Christie has walked me through many ups & downs of young adulthood, and continues to help me find my identity in Jesus and trust Him with my life. Her love and acceptance changed my life and and facilitated growth over years of consistent coffee conversations, Bible study, and prayer. She truly is one of my heroes and I aspire to be as giving as she is, as she gives so much of her time and wisdom to those around her. Her eyes and smile beam with the light of Christ, and she is a beautiful person inside and out, speaks words of the Spirit, and perceives and communicates truth readily with timeliness, clarity, and compassion.
I am forever thankful for Christie Linnartz and the light she brings to my life.

“Christie was truly a blessing sent from God during my junior year of college! I met her during a season that was overwhelming for both my spiritual and mental health. Knowing Christie has been absolutely life changing for me. She is so gentle and loving towards me, and she always reminds me of where my true worth is found. I have learned so much from her in all areas of my life, and she has especially helped me to grow in authenticity with God and others. Christie lovingly fills me with truth when I need it and asks me all the right questions. I love this lady more than words can describe and I am so thankful for her wisdom!”
