Once upon a time, she ran 10 miles to raise money for Compassion International. Kris is the author of,  Come, Lord Jesus: The Weight of Waiting and Holey, Wholly, Holy: A Lenten Journey of Refinement, and the follow up, Companion Workbook. She has contributed to numerous other books, is the Director of Refine {the retreat} and the founder and Executive editor of  GraceTable.org .



Come, Lord Jesus: The Weight Of Waiting

Come, Lord Jesus is a companion in the waiting season of Advent. It’s a quiet invitation to sit with the weight of waiting, and recount the faithfulness of God, to trace the hope of Christmas, and prepare the way for Jesus’ coming into the world, into our own hearts, into our everyday, ordinary time. With its offering of a daily reading, a reflection, prayer and one, or two reflective questions for you to contemplate, this book is a welcome “friend” to readers during the Advent, or any other season of waiting.

Holey, Wholly, Holy: A Lenten Journey Of Refinement

What if for Lent this year, you gave up something other than chocolate or TV.? What if the thing God wants us to give up costs more than what we think we can bear? “The church father Irenaeus said that the glory of God is a human being fully alive. That’s Kris Camealy’s goal in Holey, Wholly, Holy. She wants to help me and you come fully alive to the risen Christ who is fully alive in us. ~ Kimberlee Conway Ireton, Author, Circle of Seasons: Meeting God In The Church Year.

Kris writes with healthy doses of vulnerability, humility, and encouragement that remind me that I am dust and deeply loved.”

There's such an honest seeking and vulnerable nature to your writing – it always fixes my heart back on Jesus in such a beautifully unpretentious way, and I just wanted to thank you!
