We Are For the Hungry Ones

We create scripture-basd resources + spaces to cultivate a culture where women live intimately with jesus and boldly in their communities

Salt is for the woman who

Our Vision

craves to know their true value and worth

desires a deeper understanding of the Word

wants authentic and refining friendships

hungers for more of Jesus

To see generations of women intimately pursuing Jesus and living in a way that inspires others to do the same. To see women with an authentic desire to get into the Word and apply the teachings of Jesus to their real world. To see women who know Jesus intimately spend time in the secret place and then live from that relationship in their communities. We want to see generations of women hungry for more of God!

Our Prayer

That God would use his platform to come alongside women from around the world and help them on their journey with Him. That all we do would be for His glory!

immeasurably more

"Now to Him who is able to do                                    than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever!

Hear How We Got Started

watch now →

Back in 2016, Krista Hengesh started Live Salted her senior year of college out of the shed in her backyard, but that is for sure not where Live Salted began. As a ministry, we are so convinced that the Lord has planted seeds in all of our lives and He is tilling the ground and waiting for the perfect moment for them to grow. This was the case for Krista. She always knew she was called to the be Salt and Light, and when she went down to college to continue being that person she felt alone and isolated in her faith, questioning if it was even worth it to follow God when it seemed like everyone was against her. She turned online to find some resources based in Scripture and couldn’t find any, which was the gap that God then called Krista to fill with creating Live Salted.

Our Story

A Message From Our Founder

Our Impact

Launched 55 Virtual Small Groups Worldwide

When COVID hit, the Lord laid it on our heart to create community to help with the overwhelming sense of isolation and loneliness. Our team pivoted quickly, and since March 2020 we have launched 55 virtual small groups creating 55 opportunities for women to stand up and lead. Through that we have gotten over 350 women from around the world plugged into small groups!

Hosted 14 Conferences

Since our first event in April 2016, the Lord has led us to hosting 16 all day conferences, events or overnight retreats in Washington, Oregon, California, Texas and New Zealand! Each event has been different with it’s own unique crazy God-stories and circumstances. There really is nothing sweeter than gathering with other women worshiping and learning alongside one another!

Impacted thousands of lives online + in person

Between our in-person and online events we have had the opportunity to interact and love so many women from around the world. Each person we interact with gives us a fuller image of God’s Kingdom and what He is doing here on this earth. We love our community!

Verses that have shaped us

2 Corinthians 5:17-18a ESV

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to Himself..."

John 10:10 ESV

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”

2 Corinthians 5:17-18a ESV

“Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. For our sake He made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God.”

John 13:34-35 HCSB

“‘I give you a new command: Love one another. Just as I have loved you, you must also love one another. By this all people will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.’”

1 Peter 5:2-4 NIV

“Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, watching over them—not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not pursuing dishonest gain, but eager to serve; not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock. And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away.

1 Corinthians 2:9-10 NIV

“However, as it is written: ‘What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived’— the things God has prepared for those who love Him— these are the things God has revealed to us by His Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.”

Hebrews 11:6 HCSB

“Now without faith it is impossible to please God, for the one who draws near to Him must believe that He exists and rewards those who seek Him.”

Galatians 6:9-10 HCSB

“So we must not get tired of doing good, for we will reap at the proper time if we don’t give up. 10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, we must work for the good of all, especially for those who belong to the household of faith.”
