When Creativity is Lacking 

Hi All!

Can you believe we're already knee-deep into the third month of the year?  I'm sure having trouble believing it.  This month of March seems to be in a hurry.  I think part of the issue is that I am in a hurry- a hurry to get to spring here in beautiful KY where we've experienced quite a bit of winter in the past few months.  The snow is beautiful, but I am ALWAYS COLD.

Anyway, I digress.  Today, I wanted to write a short post on three things to do when you feel less than creative.  

You see, to…

Goals and Promises 

This is a challenging post for me to write-- in a  good way. It is the first time I can think of where I’m sharing my business goals publicly for all the world to see. It reminds me of that common dream of being on a stage and realizing you’re naked in front of the audience. Come on, I know you’ve had that dream too! Don’t even deny it.  

After looking back over 2017 and realizing how much I’d missed the mark on some of my goals, I decided 2018 has to be different. My life and family need these goals to…

Two Years Ago 

I was scrolling social media this morning and this picture popped up as a time hop from two years ago:

Seeing this image brought back such good memories of what I was doing roughly two years ago: recording the vocals for my album, Make Something Happen.  2015 was such an exciting year because of that project.  I had dreamed of recording an original album for as long as I can remember, and God finally opened the doors for it to happen that year.  I ended up making 4 trips to Nashville that year alone just…

Missing My Voice 

"Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.  Serve the Lord with gladness: come before His Presence with singing." -Psalm 100:1-2 

Lately, I have really been missing my voice.  I don't mean that in some philosophical, hypothetical way.  I mean, that in the three weeks that I've lived in KY, I have not had my normal singing voice.  And I miss it. 

As soon as I arrived here, I started to feel sick.  I know many people experience allergies here in the Ohio Valley, but I think for me, the sickness…

Future K King Products (I Need Your Help) 

If you're reading this post, I hope that you are no stranger to Kristin King Music at this point.  (If you are new around here, welcome!  I hope to get to know you and I hope you'll take the time to look around and stay awhile!)  

Many of you reading this are probably familiar with me and what I do.  My company that I formed two years ago has the following mission statement (which I don't think I've ever shared publicly!):

"K L J Creative and Kristin King Music exist to produce high quality products and

For Such a Time 

If someone asked me to choose a favorite heroine from the Bible, I would probably say Esther.  If you're not familiar with her story, I encourage you to read it.  She's got her very own book in the Old Testament, sandwiched between Nehemiah and Job.  In a nutshell, the book is all about the story of how Esther embraces her destiny by becoming a queen (pretty cool destiny!), and simultaneously, has the boldness to save her entire nation from destruction.  It's an EPIC story, an Old Testament fairytale…Read more

How Can I Serve You? 

Hi friends!

I'll be brief because I've got a really cool post coming your way soon that tells my story of how I landed in this crazy thing we call "ministry".  

As I told you before, I am so excited for 2017!  Because of planning and execution of that planning, I know this is going to be a banner year for Kristin King Music.  

Here's where you come in.  I am excited to announce that I am now booking ministry engagements for 2017!  

Last year, I was able to help churches around the country with their music…Read more

Looking Back, Looking Forward 

2016 was quite the year for me.  I didn't realize it until I was reading through my journal of the past year, and that's when it hit me that a lot has happened in the past 365 days. 

The most major thing that happened at the beginning of the year was the release of my first album, Make Something Happen (if you want to check it out, click here).  When I released this project, which I'm still very proud of by the way, I had no idea how to market it.  So even though it was mildly successful by word of mouth…

How to Support Your Favorite Small Businesses! 

Are you surviving Black Friday?  Are you out there in the trenches, I mean the mall, scoring all the deals you can after a day of spending time with your family?  Or are you like me and staying warm and cozy at home in your sweatpants after a day of too much eating?  (Guilty as charged!)

It's amazing to me that, here we are, almost at the end of another year!

2016 has been a year of firsts for me. In January, I released my first album, Make Something Happen, which includes 5 of my newest original contemporary…Read more
