In her book “Dream”, Kristi not only invites you on a journey of heartfelt transparency and grace, but she puts an arm around your shoulder and walks with you every step of the way. She has taken the most personal heartbreak of her life and made it a ministry to those grieving. What a beautiful act of love and redemption.
-Melissa Maimone: Christian Speaker & Writer
Kristi’s book DREAM is wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! Her method of using keys to unlock each stage of grief, is easy to comprehend and beautifully written. A master storyteller, Kristi envelopes the bereaved with compassion and comfort in a pintsize book that fits perfectly in our hands and heart. A true gem that should be on the nightstand of every griever.

Kristi, I just finish reading your book…could not put it down! I loved your conversational writing style…it was like we were sharing our lives over coffee…very engaging. Of course, I would laugh, weep, laugh, weep…many times. This is one of the best books I have read on grief, love and faith. It will be a blessing to many, for a long time. Thank you for being transparent and sharing your soul and your commitment to God, family, friends, dreams, hope and living.

Kristi, After I finished your book, my 1st thought was I should order 6 of them to have on hand ready for anyone who suddenly joined “your club”… I need to buy some books. So many great ideas plus humor plus honest emotions equals a best seller! I loved it!!!

I loved the book, you are very well versed and I feel like I know you! Grief is a very difficult process. Kudos to you for being brave enough to share it beautifully with others. I love it, and I think it can be very inspirational on many different levels of grief, not just the loss of life.

Out of the depths of heartache, Kristi Smith is a ray of sunshine. Kristi knows grief. She has been there. Her words are not just clinical concepts, but instead tried and true life principles. This book is a testament to how she moved her life forward. Kristi’s words are so comforting, so heartfelt and so true. Quite simply, it is an awesome book, written by an incredible woman.

Your book has helped me so much already, and I will be re-reading the parts I need to as I am healing. Thank you so much Kristi, blessings to you.
I love your book so much I am going through my 2nd read. Thank you for your down to earth approach to just taking one step at a time, reminding yourself every day to trust God, and to give your mess to God. HE really is the only way through it all, as you said the only way through it is …through it.

Dear Kristi, I read your book and thoroughly enjoyed it. God has given you the gift of writing! I found your book delightful and a breath of fresh air.

I finally had time to read your book. I was into the Dare to Dream chapter and the section on Dare to Dance. I cannot tell you how much peace and empowerment this has brought to me. I knew when I saw your book that God put my eyes on it to read but I didn’t know that he was sending me what I needed to hear. Instead of dreading today, I am going to dance through it! Thank you so much for letting God work through you.
Recently I received your gift of the book “Dream” and as usual it came at a perfect time. I started reading the book and I realized I was still grieving. I didn’t realize there were so many steps. Thanks to Kristi Smith, I feel that I can cope with my emotions and know I’m on the right path.
My father-in-law passed away last September. Cancer Hope supported him and the family through his battle with cancer, and recently, they sent your book to his wife. We visited her this past weekend and she said that your book was the one that has helped her the most during the grief and mourning and healing process. I wanted to thank you for opening your heart and sharing your story to help others with grieving the loss of a loved one. You are an inspiration. You are a beautiful soul and a blessing to many!
So proud of her for writing this book, sharing what it’s like with others and giving them hope to LIVE on!
