"Our church invited Kristen Lee to come and speak for our first Women's Event. After praying, God revealed Kristen was to be the one to come and speak. As always His timing was right. She shared from His word and from her heart just what He wanted us to hear. If you are searching for someone to deliver a truthful, heartfelt and prayed over message about God's love and truth, I would highly recommend this lady. God has used Kristen her whole life and she loves nothing more than to share His Word and His love. We are thankful for her obedience to serve."

"Several years ago I had the pleasure of hearing Kristen sing with her family at a Revival in Fordyce, AR. I can’t remember what she sang, but after the song or before it, Kristen began to say what was on her heart. She was so young and elegant, and as I listened to her I knew she genuinely loved the LORD and he had anointed her to sing and speak for Him.  It really blessed and encouraged me that night. In the months to follow, her family had opportunities to sing and speak at our church, at youth rallies, and church camp. After hearing Kristen speak in a girl’s group at one of the youth lock-ins, I felt the LORD prompting me to put a teen girl’s youth conference together, and he laid it on my heart to ask Kristen to be a part of it. It took a few years and a move to another state, but I was finally able to invite Kristen to speak to the teen girls in my youth group. After much prayer, and having the theme, I contacted Kristen with the information and gave her open reign to speak on what she felt led to.  I could not have asked for more. God really showed up! I know Kristen was prayerful about the sessions because she hit on everything I knew the group needed to hear, and she did it in such a gentle yet passionate way.  I love that Kristen cares about truth, she cares about honoring God, and you can see in her life and the way she speaks about Christ, that she loves him and has a desire to see others know him in a deeper more meaningful way.  I am excited to see Kristen’s ministry flourish because I know God calls her to it, and through the Holy Spirit, she has the gift to teach in a way that will really challenge the hearts of those that are blessed to hear her."
