Hello, sunshine! 

My name is Kristin Koonce! I'm a motivational speaker and blogger. I'm also a Daughter of the King, an encourager, a sunshine seeker, a “Joy Germ” fanatic, an optimist, laughter enthusiast, and dreamer who wants to change the world.

Do you ever find yourself wondering if there's more to life than this? As a motivational speaker and blogger, my mission is to ENCOURAGE and INSPIRE Christians to have faith, live purposefully, and be a light in the darkness so that, together, we can make an ETERNAL DIFFERENCE in this world for God's Kingdom.

Everybody has a dream in their heart...something they're deeply passionate about. Their heart beats for this dream. Just the thought of it sets their soul on fire. Their eyes light up and the biggest smile stretches across their face when it comes to mind. 

Sadly, rather than doing the one thing that would make them happiest, the thing they were MADE to do, they settle. They choose a life of safety and comfort and what "makes sense" from the world's perspective instead of the abundant life God has in store for them. 

But the longing to pursue their biggest dream and deepest passion never goes away. They daydream about the possibilities at night before they go to bed and while they're sitting at stoplights.

They constantly find themselves wondering, "What if???" BUT NEVER DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. 

I devote my life to encouraging and inspiring others to DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. As I chase after my own dreams that have kept me awake at night since I was a junior in high school, I push others to do the same. Even when it's hard and scary and intimidating. Even when it seems impossible from the world's perspective and just DOESN'T MAKE SENSE.

Trusting God with your future is less about facts and more about faith. Walking in obedience and trusting God with your future is not always logical from the world’s perspective. It doesn’t always feel logical either, but we serve a God who defies all logic.

Call it what you want, but choosing to settle is simultaneously choosing to be disobedient.

God created us with a special purpose in mind that is unique to our gifts, talents, and personality. The desires we have in our hearts, the things we’re passionate about...they are not random. They tie into God’s purpose for our lives.

There IS more to life than this...but you'll never get to experience what could be unless you're willing to SURRENDER IT ALL for the One who gave it all for YOU.



Life is too short to accept or settle for anything less than God's best for you. It's time you start believing that.

I would love for you to sign up for my newsletter (get a FREE step-by-step guide to help you start living out your childhood dreams TODAY) or book me to speak!

Let's go make an eternal difference in this world for God's Kingdom.
