I’m Jill Cristao, and of all the things I’d like to define me, my faith in Jesus Christ is number one. He really is the center of my life, the One I try to imitate and follow wholeheartedly. His steadfast nature, his faithfulness through all my many mistakes and the mistakes of others that have deeply impacted me, keeps me strong in my faith and sure in my hope of eternal life in heaven.
I’m married to Frank, and between us we have six amazing adult children between the ages of 26 and 33. We have four young grandchildren whom we adore.
For several years I’ve been blessed to work as a pastor, ministering to those in need and to leaders within the church. Using my gifts in tangible ways is incredibly fulfilling, but currently I’m not working, choosing instead to reflect on God’s work around me and in me. It’s a time of refreshing for me.
The Cottage of Content blog is a safe place to share some lessons learned, encourage each other through honest transparency, and point all to Jesus Christ. I don’t have all the answers but I know the One who does. His love for each precious person on this earth in need of a Friend, a Father, a Comforter, and/or a Savior, simply cannot be grasped, but I’ll do my best to point to Him over and over! I hope each person who reads this will get a glimpse of how deeply they are loved by Jesus, forgiven of each and every sin and mistake, and given new life through Him. So be it, Lord Jesus!
