Christina Tinsley : Life with Coach and the Kids
I am happy to introduce Christina Tinsley as this week’s millennial Mom for Motherhood Mondays. Christina is married to Kennedy Tinsley and she is the mother of 3 beautiful daughters and one little man she lovingly calls her “sunny son”. Currently, Christina lives in Greensboro, NC, but not for long.
I caught up with Christina during a time of transition for her and her family. You see Christina, on top of holding down a family and her own business, is a Coach’s wife. This year, her husband was hired as the Head Coach for the Mallard Creek High School Football team. Given that Mallard Creek High School is located in Charlotte, NC, Christina and her family are preparing for a move from Greensboro to Charlotte very soon. It’s a big move and one they are ready to make.
Before becoming a Coach’s wife, Christina tells us that her personal journey of faith has included a number of challenges along the way. In fact, her journey is on going and continues to unfold before her. Christina grew up in Akron, Ohio and was baptized at 12 years old. However, she acknowledges that she would not fully embrace her faith until becoming an adult in college. At that time in her life, she began attending church services at the Sharpe Road Church of Christ. The Bible messages spoke to her and, even more so, she treasured the love and lasting relationships she was blessed to find there.
Another very important part of Christina’s faith journey is her relationship with the Lord. After some reflection, Christina admits that becoming a mom has been a game changer. She explains that, as a new parent, it all became real when she suddenly realized she was “responsible for a whole person”. That alone is enough to make you a more faith-filled child of God. With four children, Christina and Kennedy, make sure they are all in church and in Sunday school class each first day of the week.
Christina is rarely short on words. When I inquired about her style, she quickly responded, referring to herself as a “Millennial Motherhood Minimalist”. On most days, she jokingly says she does a good job sporting the “she’s let herself go” look. However, she did express that she knows how to dress to impress when the occasion requires it.
After giving birth to four children, I had to ask Christina the question everyone wants to know. So, I did it. I asked her, what her ideal birth experience would be. (That’s what everyone wants to know right?) Without hesitation Christina replied, “Pain free!”
Christina is passionate about the new chapter of life she is about to enter with her family. As a busy hairstylist, she will continue to provide the best haircare services for her new clients while maintaing services for her most loyal clients. On Friday nights, she will be ready to wear the Mallard Creek High School colors whenever the season kicks off. And, after the season concludes, she will be planning a child-free cruise with her husband.
The next big thing on Christina’s calendar is a couple of birthdays. First, she will make time to celebrate her own birthday this month and, then, a few days later, she will have a birthday for her daughter. Christina’s birthday wish this year is to close on her house in Greensboro and, then, find the perfect home in Charlotte.
I, for one, pray everything goes exceptionally well for Christina and her household! As it turns out, Christina is my hairstylist , my daughter-in-love and her children are my grandbabies! I highly recommend that you visit her business website on curlsbychristina.com.
