Hello there! I’m Kaitlyn Cey. I often hear the same messages you do: You need to have more, do more and be more to matter! However, when we listen to God’s love – He silences that message and empowers people with confidence, unleashing a mind-set of resilience, motivation, purpose and impact. This mindset is developed through the cultivation of an inner-life grounded in Gospel love – and results in flourishing students, families, and communities – I want more of this kind of cultivation – and that is what this blog is about, Cross Confidence.
After high school, I completed a Christian Leadership Program in British Columbia called Kaleo (To be called out). I then continued studying at Briercrest College in Saskatchewan for two more years before moving and working towards a Bachelors degree in English and Education. This has made for many library hours – and has been an incredible ride!
Today, I work as a high school math teacher and pastor or women’s ministries at a beautiful Church. I am so grateful for the work God has given me to do in both places! In the classroom, I get to teach Standard Deviation, Pythatorus’ Theorum and on the best days: Trig Ratios! (It’s ok if standard deviation doesn’t excite you as it does me…) In ministry, I get to be involved in a whole host of events, programs and fun! The ministry is called Sisterhood YXE and we gather, empower and mobilize girls and women to live and spread the Gospel. I love the committed team I get to work with!
In the evenings, you might find me coaching junior badminton or volleyball, practicing worship tunes or walking the beautiful paths of Saskatoon with friends.
I used to think of my faith with the emphasis on being God’s servant – and I tended to forget about being His child. Over the years, God has helped me to understand that Jesus is grace and that means that I can relax, enjoy life, and stop trying to measure up! Jesus has done it all on the cross. Life really is better with Jesus. This is Cross Confidence.
A favourite verse:
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead” – 1 Peter 1:3
