In 2009 Christal and her former husband began the pursuit of adopting a four year Haitian girl in Dominican Republic. What began as a simple and straightforward emergency humanitarian response on behalf of an orphaned child ended in an international debacle that is yet to be resolved. To date, their daughter has not been granted permission to come to Canada and is unable to leave Dominican Republic. The result of the experience caused Christal to have to completely rebuild her life around the limitations it presented.
It’s the best thing that ever happened to her!
Christal’s message is one of learning how to change the stories we tell ourselves. In December of 2014 Christal released her first book, Resonate: We Can Change the Stories We Tell Ourselves. Her life work continues to be focused on helping leaders and seekers of truth learn to change and transform the stories they tell themselves.
