A Little About Me

Hi I’m Christin Ditchfield. I’m a writer and a speaker. I host a syndicated daily radio program called Take It To Heart!

I’m passionate about calling women to a deeper life — the kind of life that’s found in a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. It’s the kind of life we long for, the kind of life we were created for…

Over the years I’ve met so many women like me: women who love Jesus, but sometimes feel overwhelmed or distracted or disconnected from Him. Together we’re learning how to walk with Him on a daily basis, so that we can experience a richer, deeper, more meaningful relationship with Him!

I usually post here once or twice a week, sometimes sharing wise words from other women in ministry I’m privileged to call my sisters and friends.*

When I’m not writing or speaking, I’m helping homeschooling families (I used to be a preschool / elementary / jr high teacher) or spending time with my own wonderful family – we’re something of a cross between the Ingalls, the Waltons, and the Von Trapps. (If you’re here because you’ve met my family or attended one of their concerts, then yes, I’m the one who doesn’t sing!) I especially love doing gloriously messy craft projects with my adorable nephews. And in the beginning of 2017, I married Christian speaker, scholar, and author Andrew Lazo! (Read our story here.)

 

*I’m excited to announce I’m now under contract for two new books scheduled for release in 2017.  It’s a little crazy right now, between the writing deadlines and wedding and the moving to Texas with my new husband — but I’ll try to be here as often as I can!

What I Believe

It’s no secret what I believe! For twenty-five years, I’ve been sharing it openly, freely,  in just about every possible way — in person, in gospel tracts and magazines and books, from the platform all over the country, on radio and TV, and now through social media and blogging. New friends sometimes ask about my church background and ministry — the short answer is it’s interdenominational :)

Jesus said that the world would know that we are His, by the love we have for one another. (John 13:35)

As much as I value orthodoxy (and I do
!), as much as I love theology and sound doctrine (and I do!), as much as I believe in being wise and discerning (and I do!), I also believe we can never lose sight of this.

Here’s a blog post I wrote about it:

Why You Won’t Get an Argument From Me

In the words of seventeenth century theologian Meldenius (sometimes ascribed to Augustine): “In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; and in all things, charity.”
