Krystin, who was born and raised in Birmingham, always promised that she would move away from the city the first chance she got. But Birmingham definitely got the last laugh! Now over 3 decades later, she finds herself married to an awesome guy who is also Birmingham born and raised and a homeschool mom to 4 amazing kiddos who get to grow up exposed to everything our amazing city has to offer. By day she is a blogger and influencer at Growing Up Godfrey, where she helps busy moms live, love, and teach their children with joy. And at night – you can find her hanging with her husband and kids. Wondering how she does it all? She says her faith in God is key. Birmingham was never part of the plan, but Krystin is daily falling in love with it all over again.
