Crystal Brown was born and raised in Lansing, Michigan. Having come from a dysfunctional home, which involved alcohol abuse, she grew up having to overcome the many obstacles a chaotic environment creates. She helped carry the weight and responsibility of maintaining peace in the home as well as upholding her sister who was an addict and suffered from mental illness.
Even though things didn’t make sense, one thing she did know, God was always with her. The pressures of life at such a young age, sent Crystal spiraling down a road of one bad decision after the other, which included running away from home, drugs, teen pregnancy, and ultimately serving time in prison.
After being released from prison, Crystal realized that even though she was physically free, she was still in prison in her mind; that is, until she surrendered her life to Jesus.
Having realized her true identity in Christ, Crystal has a passion and a boldness to minister deliverance, healing and forgiveness to all who have been bound by life’s negative circumstances.
The Fragrance of Forgiveness was birthed out of a mandate from God to empower His people to forgive themselves and one another, as Christ has forgiven them.
Crystal has one daughter, two sons, and four grandchildren, and resides in Lansing, MI.
