About Me

Welcome! I’m Crystal. You are a huge blessing and your visit to this little ministry truly humbles me. I am a mom of three (pictures below, of course!), wife of 12 years, obsessive reader, lover of lists, lazy skier and hiker, and recovering control-freak.

But mostly, I am a perfectly imperfect follower of Christ. Can you relate?


God has called me to start this blog despite my imperfections,  my inexperience, and my sin. Indeed, I have been a Christian for over 25 years and spent much of that time serving in various ministries. And with a 12-year publishing career, I know a thing or two about writing. But none of it qualifies me to do God’s work.


I submit to Jesus at the foot of the cross with humility and faith. I choose to stop asking God why and start seeing the how (hint—it doesn’t come from me!).

I look forward to God working in miraculous ways in your life and in mine. How about you?

Do you believe the Lord actively works in your life?

Do you trust Him in all areas?

Do you share Jesus with others?

The goal of this blog is to help you—mothers, wives, career women, and ministry workers—answer yes to these questions.

Don’t worry—I’ll be working through all of this with you. My desire is to learn as much about my faith in my Savior as you do. I’ll be researching, studying, praying, and consulting other Bible-believing Christians while I help you move your faith forward.

Here’s what you’ll find at Crystal Parenteau—Faith at the Foot of the Cross:

The Find Faith section reminds you to find God working in your life every day.

The Grow Faith section shares biblical principles and applies them to everyday situations to help you mature in Christ at home, work, and church.

The Share Faith section offers ideas on sharing Jesus’ love with family and friends, your ministry, and the world.

May I be as much of a blessing to you as you are to me!
