On this episode of the More to Be Podcast, Elisa Pulliam is joined by author, speaker, and friend, Crystal Stine, for the Unblinded Faith Series, inspired by Elisa’s newest devotional book, Unblinded Faith: Gaining Spiritual Sight Through Believing God’s Word.

Be Holy and Humble with Crystal StineMeet Crystal Stine

Crystal has a heart for encouraging women to live authentic lives, online and in real life and offers a unique perspective as a small-town writer who has learned from her internet community how to build real life community. Her heart is to encourage, equip and inspire women of all ages to embrace a work hard, rest well lifestyle that honors God with their every day, small moment obedience.

You can connect with Crystal online at, learn more about her book at, or find her on Instagram @crystalstine.

On this episode, Be Holy and Humble, Elisa and Crystal chat about what it looks like to face trials with faith and challenges with humble grace. Crystal shares how she came into the faith as a teenager and what it’s meant to live it out as a mom, wife, and in ministry. Together, they look at Colossians 3, considering the life of “putting on” and “taking off,” especially when things like ministry and work don’t go your way and you’re left disappointed with a wounded heart. You’ll find this episode filled with the encouragement to embrace both the hustle of work and holiness of rest in light of Crystal’s new book, Holy Hustle.


God is still doing a new thing. He is not yet done with us. – Crystal

It’s not about me. It’s about God’s work. – Crystal

Faith is the thing we have to cling to when we're in the deepest part of the trial.

Failures are not Stop Signs, they are stepping stones. – Crystal

There is a way out of the pit. It’s the goal of where God intended to take you. – Elisa

Failures are not stop signs. They are stepping stones.

Faith is the thing we have to cling to when we’re in the deepest part of the trial. – Elisa

We can flee. We fight. We can have faith. – Crystal

We need to work without shame and rest without guilt. – Crystal

God has created us to work, which is a result of our faith in action. – Crystal

Challenge Question

Whatever the work you do, there is a need and a purpose. So grab a piece of paper and right down all the work that you do and then give thanks to God for that work. Give it back to Him. Ask Him to show you how to serve and rest.
