Keynote Speaker: Kristina Glackin
Having faced many trials and hardships, Kristina once found herself in a very lost, dark, hopeless place. She was familiar with life in a broken home followed by a foster home. Self-confidence issues, substance abuse and eating disorders were a way of life. Her need for acceptance and attention led her into more dangerous, vulnerable places that brought even more tragedy into her life. But, the same girl that most people would write-off as “too far gone” has been transformed into a woman who is speaking life into others! And it all started with a leap of faith. Kristina shares her story of hope, faith and love not only through speaking, but also in the form of spoken word poetry. Her journey from pain to purpose is one that sparks something in the hearts of the listeners, she believes, because it is told with a power that is greater than her: Love.
