Meet Krys

Speaker. Counselor. Entrepreneur.


...but you can call me Krys.

I am a lifestyle development coach, a trained counselor, published author, and emerging entrepreneur. My streams of income are endless because I'm always seeking God and setting goals in an attempt to secure every bag that He has for me. Period.

I live by the promise that I lack NOTHING (Psalm 23:1).

I was born and raised in McAlmont, Arkansas with a growing passion to see everybody win, mainly because so many odds were automatically stacked against the people I was surrounded by as I was growing up. I left the hood but the hood didn't leave me. I am forever shaped by my experiences and every now and then my ebonics reminds people of that. Some days I just don't feel like code-switching.

Nevertheless, my life has been transformed by the Holy Spirit. I am thankful for what God has done for me, through me. My personal experiences have played a major role in why I care so much about the spiritual development of others.

As a follower of Christ, I faithfully believe that anyone, young and old, can do all things through Christ - with proper rest and discernment. We all have gifts that can and will lead us to our purpose if we simply submit to the process.

I submitted to the process; as a result, I am now living the life that God has called me to. The journey included teen pregnancy, divorce, and remarriage - but I'm here.

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Tennessee State University with a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice. I continued my education eventually receiving a Master of Divinity in Pastoral Counseling with an emphasis on Christian Leadership. I am now currently in the trenches of a Master of Theology program for Homiletics.

Overall, my journey prompted me to visualize and curate a lifestyle and empowerment brand that focuses on engaging, equipping, and empowering others 1) vocally through my words and 2) visually through my writing and well-crafted statement tees. My ultimate prayer is that God will be glorified in all that I offer to the world.


Grace and peace.

Krys McDonald
