Kristin earned her B.A. in English from College of the Ozarks and her M.F.A. in creative writing from National University. In addition to teaching for Regent University for the last nine years, she homeschools her children and leads a women's Bible study. When she carves out the time, she loves to read mystery novels, hike, bake pies, play games, and watch BBC period-piece shows.
Kristin and her husband have been married for 13 years and have three kids. They make their home in Missouri.
When the world says, “Let your emotions lead you,” we as Christ-followers must find a different course, navigating through the minor whirlpools, unpredictable winds, and sometimes ferocious hurricanes. Christ’s words and actions guide our ships into deeper waters and beyond to the other shore.
This book explores scriptural anchoring points, personality influence, and past experiences to give us a new vision of the weighted tension between letting loose with our feelings or cinching up and ignoring them altogether. As human beings, we are created with emotional dimension, and within Christ, we are called to surrender these feelings, using them in a healthy and biblical way.

Navigating a Sea of Emotions is a must for those interested in examining emotions and the role they play in our daily lives. I love Kristin's vulnerable way of sharing her own personal walk and struggles with emotions. This book is humorous, informative and will point you to God's Word and His transforming love, mercy and grace. I'm always encouraged in my walk with Christ by her personal blogs and now this book! --Vicki
Navigating a Sea of Emotions is a very relatable, encouraging, and biblical resource for women like me who need help navigating our emotions. Kristin's personal stories had me laughing out loud and her writing style made it easy for me to hear God speaking to the deep, hidden places of my heart. This is a treasure I highly recommend to women for personal devotions or group study.
Kristin Hanley writes with vulnerability, passion and purpose. This book acts like a mirror. Kristin's authentic approach causes me to be honest with myself. Kristin uses God's Word with accuracy to provide a baseline as we process our emotions in a godly way. Specifically, I see this book having a powerful impact on moms.
