Meet Kayla Krizek

Kayla Krizek is absolutely thrilled to be singing with Sweetwater Revival ! A Twin Cities native, she grew up listening to Southern Gospel music in her grandma's kitchen and singing solos as a little girl at church. After attending her first Gaither Homecoming concert and meeting some of her favorite singers in person, she was hooked!

Kayla attended Northwestern College and participated in almost every music and drama ensemble imaginable, winning numerous awards and scholarships. She discovered a passion for performing and soon began appearing in community musical theatre productions throughout the Twin Cities - Beth in Little Women, Liesl in The Sound of Music, Belle in Beauty and the Beast, and The Narrator in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

In the summer of 2010 Kayla married her husband Elliott, who works in education technology. Their beautiful daughter Cordelia was born in 2014, and that experience inspired Kayla to train and become a birth doula, serving other mothers during pregnancy and childbirth.

"The Lord's timing in bringing together this particular group of ladies "for such a time as this" is so exciting, and an overwhelming blessing! I leave every rehearsal refreshed, encouraged, and wrapped in love. We can't wait to share God's love and power with you through song!"

Interesting Facts...
Favorite hobbies: crafting, cooking, baking, babysitting for friends, trying to garden, and Pinterest, of course!

Favorite hymn: It's an old one - "The Love of God." My favorite part happens in the last verse: "To write the love of God above would drain the ocean dry..."

My husband Elliott proposed to me by walking out on stage at the end of a Christmas concert at school - he was holding flowers and dressed up in a tux! He had been planning this for months, with the help of the principal. In front of our choirs and bands, parents, students, and lots of friends and family, I said yes!

Places I love to visit: Disney World!!! My first trip was as a 21-year-old college student. My sisters, aunt and I made a very special trip to Disney World with my grandma before she died, and I treasure those memories.

Favorite verses/passages: Jeremiah 9:24b "I am the LORD, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight."
Exodus 14:14 "The LORD will fight for you; you need only be still."
Psalm 45:11 "The king is enthralled with your beauty; honor him, for he is your lord."
Genesis 45 (The Story of Joseph) "...It was to save lives that God sent me ahead of then, it was not you who sent me here, but God."
