What to Expect
An inspiring and hope drenched journey through brokenness and redemption. A call to action to claim our stories and honor those of others that inspires compassion, grace and kindness in our communities.
Christina Tinker is the oldest of three children born to high school sweethearts from Houston, Texas. From an early age, Christina found her joy in writing, reading, and sharing stories. Raised by successful business minded parents who emphasized the importance of education, hard work and dedication, Christina followed their guidance and graduated from Texas A&M University with a B.A. in Speech Communication. She found an early career as a soft skills trainer in an entrepreneurial environment and then went on to have a successful 10-year career in the big, publicly traded technology industry.
Eventually, Christina found that her creative instincts were just too strong to ignore and made the jump to become a full time writer and speaker.
From 2013-2015, Christina spoke to more than 1,000 young people on the topics of eating disorder prevention and living life to the fullest. She also wrote and published a children’s booked called Oscar the Only about children finding compassion and acceptance in one another’s differences. Christina was honored to be a speaker in the Listen to Your Mother San Antonio show in May 2016, where she shared the story of finding grace in her children’s unconditional embrace.
In the last 9 years, Christina and her husband have moved four times and had three children (via two pregnancies).
Moving to Richmond, Virginia fulfilled a life long dream of living in a place where autumn feels like autumn and the beach and mountains are both within a couple hours drive. Christina truly found her voice in writing and telling stories that help; stories that heal and stories that spread truth and hope. Founding Richmond Moms Blog has been a key part of fulfilling that purpose, as it allows Christina to share her story, but also hear so many other women's stories.
Christina’s passion to inspire women, and to bring them together in a way that is authentic and brave, drive her to create a community that will change the world for the better, one family at a time.
