About Krista Brandsma

Krista is a full-time homemaker who spends her days caring for her husband and 5 boys and stealing rare moments of peace when she can find them. She is a firm believer in organization and having a plan but has learned along the way that God has a real sense of humor as He completely threw out her plans years ago. She has two Canadian born sons, two Korean-Canadian sons and one Thai-Canadian son, ranging in age from 2-15. Life is rarely organized but never dull at the Brandsma house. When the wrestling, play fighting, and practical jokes overwhelm her, she simply turns her music up and sings louder.

So Praise 106.5 it [...]
