Crystal longed for her father's love, but she felt only rejection. Added to that, she grew up in a home where incest and sexual molestation seemed "natural"-even from a very young age. But when her neighbor raped her and other men abused her she blamed herself. What have I done to make them do this to me? Her low self-esteem and depression led her into alcohol and drug abuse, sexual promiscuity, thoughts of suicide, self-destructive habits and dabbling in the occult. As an adult, she searched for her identity and purpose in life through being a wife, a mother and serving God. But miscarriages, failed adoptions and years of infertility kept her from her dream of being a mother. Crystal turned to adultery to find value in herself. But this only added to her guilt and shame. She believed she didn't deserve to be forgiven. At her lowest point, however, the heavenly Father filled her with His love and revealed her identity to her as Daddy's Little Princess. Crystal Narby served as a youth pastor for ten years and was involved with the Yokefellow Prison Ministry for many years. She was also a volunteer counselor for a domestic violence/rape crisis hotline. Presently she ministers healing and deliverance through Bible studies and speaking engagements. Her mission is to love the Lord and live a fasted life, according to Isaiah 58:6-7, and to go into all the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ, as commissioned in Mark 16:15-18. Crystal resides with her husband, Greg, and their son, Jayden, in Dubois, Pennsylvania.
