Behind the Scenes

Hi, my name is Kristen Iaffaldano and over 15 years ago I began sending simple “Hymn of the Month” personal emails to friends and family.

Today, I’m still doing that via Hymns Illustrated!

I’m thankful for each subscriber and podcast listener am constantly looking for more ways to encourage you and believers everywhere to keep reading, discovering and sharing new hymns -- both at church and at home.  

When I’m not reading hymns, I’m enjoying time with family which includes my family my birth, my family by marriage and my family by God's wonderful salvation! 

I also enjoy working as a virtual assistant and online business owner here in Iowa where my husband pastors Faith Baptist Church in Knoxville. 

Thank you so much for exploring Hymns Illustrated. May God use this resource to encourage you while we wait for His second coming. 

– Kristen

Hymns Illustrated strives to produce Christ-centered and gospel-centered hymn appreciation resources for God's people. Colossians 3:16 is at the heart of all you see here.

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. Colossians 3:16
