About the author


Crissy Goodpaster is a loving mother and wife with a sweet, southern charm that is admired by many. Crissy enjoys spending her time with her family and taking in all of life's little moments, such as eating sushi, listening to 80's music, watching a variety of movies, and visiting the beach. Currently, Crissy and her family live in St. Louis, Missouri; however, she was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida. Crissy's natural love of helping others and welcoming personality spilled over into her career at a law firm in downtown St. Louis. While establishing her first real career, buying her first home, and enjoying being a newlywed, she was also simultaneously having the life changing experience of losing a child to trisomy 13. Writing "Having Grace" was an important part of her healing and another step on her journey. Crissy's experiences have ultimately motivated her to reach out to others who are going through similar experiences. Her hopes in writing this book are to help those who may be going through similar tragedy and loss that she and so many have endured.
