Meet The Author
Kristy is the third and last child of her immediate family, having an older brother and sister.

She was the third generation living in their small rural community, after her mother and grandmother. 

Kristy published a book "TREASURES in The Trash" in 2018 and is currently editing her second book.  

She struggled with Complex Trauma induced amnesia (C-PTSD), Codependency, and unmet dependency needs and she openly shares through her Blogs, book, and Social Media accounts.

"I gained my sense of self by viewing who I was through how my parents treated me. I now realize I should have viewed these things differently long ago.​"
-Kristy McMorlan
Years ago, Kristy's husband surprised her at Christmas with a camera, she thought he'd wasted their money! He patiently encouraged her, while she learned all the technical aspects, and Nature Photography has become a passion of hers that they both enjoy. 

Kristy has been a Nature Photographer for more than a decade; she doesn’t see herself as a photographer, amateur, professional, or semi-professional. Instead, she sees herself as a person who likes to “capture” memories. 

Together they frequently hike and camp in search of their next nature adventure / photo.

"God is more than able and oftentimes chooses the lesser people to do the greater work, to prove it was God’s work, not any man’s."

It was in rediscovering the dormant and forgotten memories, of her early life, where Kristy began to observe the unhealthy toxic similarities between her former church and childhood unhealth leadership.  

Kristy overcame a childhood of neglect and harm, resulting in Complex Post-Traumatic Stress, only to re-experience a similarity within her church family.

Church trauma can be equally devastating as childhood wounds.  
Complex PTSD
"Oftentimes we become who we think we are through the mistreatment of others."
-Kristy McMorlan
Staying active in the church, and after raising her own children, Kristy taught multiple diverse Women’s Bible Studies.

Eventually, she became an overseer / coordinator of the Ministry of Prayer for six years.

Kristy and her husband became involved and attended a local Celebrate Recovery program for five years, joining at the same time and becoming part of the Leadership T.E.A.M. 

Kristy and her husband wanted to continue their joy of service, and served on the Leadership Board within their Church.

Presently, Kristy is taking a respite to complete her next book project.

“Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it. What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit their very self?"
Luke 9: 23-25
