Compassion That Compels is a ministry and nonprofit with a simple mission to reach every woman battling cancer with a Compassion Bag, reminding them they are never alone.
are never alone. Cancer is a thief that steals a woman’s identity and threatens to rename her as a diagnosis or medical record number where just a few moments before you were known as daughter, sister, mom, wife or friend to others. Cancer makes a woman feel invisible, and when you are visible in your own mirror, the ravages of chemo, radiation and surgery aren’t what you want to see and when you wrestle with who you’ve become, know this – God calls you BEAUTIFUL ONE.
Compassion That Compels is here to fight with you. We are a resource to equip you spiritually, emotionally and in a tangible way, with Compassion Bags. When a woman is diagnosed with cancer, she suddenly becomes a warrior. Her life is hijacked by an invisible enemy and life will never be the same. Everything is tunneled into surviving and beating cancer. In a world turned upside down from cancer we want each brave and BEAUTIFUL cancer overcomer to know they are first an overcomer in Christ.
God’s love and compassion is the cornerstone upon which this ministry is built. We love because He first loved us. Without Him, none of what we do is possible. We thank Him every day for the privilege to serve His BEAUTIFUL daughters.
As a writer and speaker, words are Kristianne’s art. A deliberate stringing of words becomes one of the highest forms of human expression when it gives a voice to the heart. Compassion That Compels and Compassion Bags started with a letter, a sweater and Kristianne’s two sisters-in-law and sister’s, cancer diagnosis. Today, Compassion That Compels has grown to an international ministry and non-profit with a simple mission to reach every woman battling cancer with Compassion Bags, reminding them they are never alone.
Kristianne’s life of love is filled to overflowing for her husband Royal, their daughters Grace and Annelise, and two Yorkies of questionable pedigree. Collecting people and gardening are among her passions. Painting lives in brilliant hues of God’s love and compassion is her purpose.
