“I don’t like weakness, but every day I am reminded of how weak I am. I can’t take my own shower, or make quick decisions; I need my parents’ help to even put my thoughts together, for an interview like this. But I love what God has done in my life because of it.”—Krista Horning

Krista Horning:
Krista Horning is 25 years old and lives near Minneapolis, Minnesota, with her parents and two siblings. After graduating from home school she volunteered and now works part time at a clinic that meets the needs of children with disabilities.

Krista has a disability called Apert Syndrome, which causes abnormal growth in her skull, hands, and feet along with numerous other problems. She has endured over 60 surgeries.

Krista enjoys reading, writing, and helping people. In 2010 her book, Just the Way I Am, was published and sold out its first printing in one month. Krista wrote the book to thank God for His grace in her life and to encourage people with the amazing truth that He is sovereign over all things, including disability.Krista’s life verse is Jeremiah 29:11: “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’”
