Kristin Schell is on a mission to love her neighbors. She put a picnic table in her front yard, painted it turquoise, and began inviting neighbors, friends, and even strangers, to hang out and do life together at The Turquoise Table. As founder of the Turquoise Table and Front Yard People movement, Kristin travels the country speaking at conferences and events with an encouraging word on how to open our lives and homes to others.
Faith Story (1:49)
Kristin’s testimony is the backdrop and preparation God used for the story of The Turquoise Table. In middle school Kristin was beat up so her mama pulled her from school and enrolled her in a parochial school where she wasn’t allowed to participate in the daily church service.

The Turquoise Table (11:00)
Kristin talks about the story behind The Turquoise Table. She had a craving and wanted to share her story and Jesus with others. She often tried inviting people to church and many times people wouldn’t come because to someone who’s never been around church, it can be intimidating. The table is almost like the Lord’s way of saying, “Let’s start at the beginning and keep this simple.” She asked the Lord to teach her about hospitality, outreach and loving others. Kristin shares many experiences and lessons she’s learned about what it’s like to truly love your neighbors.

On today’s episode of She Walks In Truth, Life and Digital Strategy Coach for Christian Entrepreneurs Angela J Herrington chats about finding freedom and fulfillment in our God-given calling.
Angela shares how as a child she grew up around church but not really in church. She got church but didn’t understand faith. In college Angela had a prodigal season and at the tail end she realized that there had been a lot of people who were praying for her the entire time. After getting out of that season she went back to school and got hungry for the Lord. God began to turn her scares into healing.
God’s Call To Ministry (6:00)
Angela shares how God called her to ministry during a very busy season in her life. It was one of the most difficult things she’s done but also one of the best things she’s done. Going to seminary she was around women in ministry who had roles in churches and denominations that she had never experienced before.
Women In Church (8:00)
Gen X women, do we have access to mentoring and discipleship opportunities. Lack of opportunities for women. Private interviews gutted her. How can I have these skills and giftings and pour them out into her sisters who don’t have access to these resources. Women who want to lead and don’t have the opportunity to. Through coaching and ministry Angela has been able to mash together her skills. Family, business and ministry don’t have to be separate. The more we fragment our lives the less whole we are.
Never Too Broken For God (13:00)
For the woman who feels too far gone for God, Angela speaks truth and life into you. God is coming for you; he’s actually already there.
Breaking Through Barriers (20:14)
