Speaking to the souls of women

MOPS Decide to Rise zoom promo.png

I'm Kirsten, wife, mom, + freedom fighter! My passion is to see women walk in the freedom + power we ALREADY have. I lovingly + boldly invite people into deeper conversations with themselves, God + each other.

My journey includes losing my mom to cancer at age 12, struggling with unresolved grief, emotionally immaturity, hiding/striving/performing, and coping/numbing/denial for decades. When the weight was too heavy to carry, I got honest and asked for help. I learned release through surrender, freedom + wholeness through transparency, and found true community through the love, truth + grace of the family of God, 12-Step Recovery + a great therapist. My passion is sharing my story so you can connect with yours + the epic redemption story God offers all of humanity. I'm no expert - I'm still on my journey. Let's learn from each other as we grow.

I live in Orange County, CA with my husband Jose + two daughters. I've led MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers), Bible Studies, Mending the Soul and Emotionally Healthy Discipleship courses. I LOVE to speak via Zoom at retreats, women's ministry events and MOPS groups.

Covid became an invitation to offer Mending the Soul online with a new topic monthly. Recordings of each topic are available for replay. Carve out an hour and connect with God, yourself and your story. You will be refreshed and encouraged. Or gift a recording to a friend who needs it. $10 per recording. Payment through Venmo @Kirsten-Casillas, or PayPay @kirstencasillas.
