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!
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!
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.

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!
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!
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!
