Born and raised in Nashville, TN, Chris began dancing at the age of 5. Years of training would yield collegiate scholarships and championships, and a move to California would begin a career as a LA Laker Girl, and work in various commercials and film.
Always in search of unconditional love and an identity in something other than herself, a professional athletic conference in Phoenix, AZ, in 1991 would change her life forever. An insecure young girl walked into a meeting, heard a message of a God whose love for her was greater than any fear of failure or rejection with which she struggled, and walked out with a heart who had experienced its Maker for the first time.
Chris met the man of her dreams that same weekend, but she and John Blue wouldn’t marry until several years later. They have since been on a wild journey of professional sports, full-time ministry, church planting, and running a vintage home business, all while raising 5 life-giving kiddos! They currently live in Southern California where we pastor Pacific Pointe Church in Costa Mesa, and Chris has the joy of encouraging women to fall madly in love with their families and stay crazy about Jesus!!
