A Krista Cottage is a modestly constructed 1200 square foot home. Traditionally it has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths with a combination living/dining/kitchen area. Appliances, ceiling fans and central heating and air are part of the cottage's amenities. The cost for materials is donated by church groups and individuals and most of the construction is done by volunteers. The average cost of a completed Krista Cottage is $36,000.

MEET ANNIE LEE GRIFFIN,

The quote below reflects her outlook on life:
"God is so good, and He's sent good people to help me. I would like to have a better situation, but I pray to the Lord to enable me to be grateful for what I have. I know that being able to take care of what I do have is a blessing."
