Take a Risk Today. You Just Might Start Something.

I’m a horrible dancer.

I mean horrible. My kids beg me to not even snap my fingers in public (What? snapping isn’t allowed in dancing now?)

I think they are imagining I will look like the guy in this video. But sometimes, we have to step out and do something no one else is doing. We have to take a risk. It might seem stupid. We might feel alone.

Even it if looks crazy, we should dance:

Because we just might encourage those around us to join in.

We might inspire someone to say yes.

Who might inspire others to say yes.

Who might inspire even more to say yes.

That’s what happens when we say yes to God. We risk everything, but we reap so much more. And we are never really alone.

Take a risk today. You just might start something.


My new book will be released to the world in six days. If you’re interested, I’d love to have you help me launch it. If you want to help spread the word about this yes movement, click here. This invitation is limited to the first 50 people. Thank you.

    Hi Kristen,

    I just want to tell you how much I love your blog. I am so thankful to God for you and your family.

    After becoming a step-mum at 23 and now a mother myself to a baby boy 2 years later, reading your blog has been a huge encouragement in so many ways – not to mention the helpful tips!

    Allowing God to lead me every step of the way since giving my life to Christ at 20 has gotten me into what most people would say are completely terrifying and/or crazy situations, however he has never left my side. My husband and I are working hard to give him the greatest glory as we wade through the brokenness of this world, and God has given us the greatest joy imaginable. What an amazing God we serve!

    Please keep writing and sharing about your life, your family and your ministry at Mercy House. God is using you in incredible ways all over the world (I’m in Sydney, Australia)!

    Thank you.
