Kristie was born and raised in Tacoma, Washington and graduated with degrees in education and history from the University of Washington. Kristie and her husband, Chuck, have been married for 55 years, and they have three children, seven grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren. Kristie accepted Jesus as her personal Savior while in high school but lost touch with Him along the way. Chuck and Kristie welcomed Jesus back into their lives about 25 years ago, and He has been the center of their lives since that time. They are extremely happy to be a part of Church at the Red Door. Thanks be to God for making this possible.
