In the summer of 1998 Chrystal experienced a miraculous and medically documented healing. The healing came as the result of several streams of help converging and working together. While working with a psychiatrist and psychologist, she also sought God's healing through deliverance and inner healing of painful childhood trauma that resulted from her father's death six weeks before she was born.
It was this process that brought her back to wholeness again. After her healing, God led her to start a ministry of transformation, Emerging Life Ministry.
